Aaron Rodgers appears to have chosen to stick it out with the Green Bay Packers.

Rodgers and the Packers agreed to a four-year, $200 million deal which would make him the highest-paid player in league history, the NFL Network reported Tuesday. According to the report, Rodgers would be guaranteed $153 million.

Rodgers led Green Bay to another 13-3 record which came with an NFC North division crown but an early playoff exit, losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round.

Rodgers, a 10-time Pro Bowler, four-time All-Pro and Super Bowl champion, picked up his second consecutive NFL MVP award – his fourth total. He racked up 4,115 passing yards and 37 touchdown passes with only four interceptions thrown.

With the early playoff exit, the rumors began to swirl around his future. The NFL Network reported Rodgers considered retiring altogether and even requesting a trade to the Denver Broncos but neither came to fruition.
