After the Raiders gave Derek Carr a five-year, $125 million contract in June and the Lions handed Matthew Stafford a five-year contract extension worth a reported $135 million, Rodgers’ new contract would certainly exceed those dollar amounts.
Rodgers’ current contract is a five-year, $110 million deal he signed in 2013. That keeps him under contract through the 2019 season. He’s won two NFL MVP awards and led the Packers to a Super Bowl championship in 2010. Should he win another Super Bowl between now and 2019, he might just end up as the NFL’s first $200 million player.

What I hope to see from this is a shift in the conversation to Seth’s black teammates, who realistically have to carry that burden all the time. I am discouraged by this idea that acknowledging and fighting against racism is a distraction that must be stored away in order to be a good football player. I wholeheartedly reject that narrative.

Black players in the NFL cannot just turn their concern on and off in order to be able to focus more on football. White players shouldn’t, either, Harris DeValve added. Racism is a day-to-day reality, and I hope that, instead of holding Seth up on a pedestal, the response will be to do what he did: listen to the voices of the black people in your life, and choose to support them as they seek to make their voices heard.
