Report Reveals Aaron Rodgers’ Performance-Based Pay for Four Plays in 2023 in NFL

NFL players can earn extra money through a performance-based pay system that rewards them based on their playtime and performance. However, if a player suffers an injury, plays fewer snaps or underperforms, they may not earn as much from this system. For instance, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers played only four snaps in Week 1 and received the lowest amount among all NFL players – $81.14.

On the other hand, players like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy and former Baltimore Ravens guard John Simpson benefited from the incentives and earned significantly more through the performance-based pay system. The system is designed to reward players for their playtime and base salary, with players earning more if they play a substantial amount of snaps, especially with a low base salary.

Rodgers, who signed a two-year deal with $75 million guaranteed through 2024, took a pay cut to join the Jets. Despite his low earnings from the performance-based pay system this season due to his injury history and reduced playing time, he is looking forward to returning next season and hoping for a healthier and more successful season. With his new contract and potential longer playing time in the future, Rodgers may see a significant increase in his paycheck.
