What is Aaron Rodgers’s net worth? A look at NFL star's endorsements as Shailene Woodley confirms engagement
Two weeks after it was first reported that Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers was engaged, ‘Big Little Lies’ star Shailene Woodley finally broke her silence on the hush-hush relationship by confirming that the NFL player has put a ring on her finger. During her appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, 29-year-old Woodley revealed that they’ve been engaged “for a while now”. She told the host, "For us, it's not new news, you know?”
The actress apparently finds people’s reaction to their engagement “funny”. She noted, “So it's kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we're like, 'Yeah, we've been engaged for a while.'" In a gushing description of her fiancé, Woodley called Rodgers “just a wonderful, incredible human being,” before adding “ I never thought I'd be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living.”
Perhaps, she also wouldn’t have fathomed the life she would be living married to an NFL player, who is known for his many achievements and a massive fortune he basks in.
What is Aaron Rodgers’s net worth?
Rodgers, 37, was born in Chico, California to Darla Leigh and Edward Wesley Rodgers. He played baseball during his elementary schooling and took up football while attending Plesant Valley High School. He decided to forgo his senior year at USC to enter the NFL Draft in 2005.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Rodgers has a net worth of $120 million. The report suggests that he has earned over $21 million through his salary and wins and $90 million through endorsements. He even has a four-year contract extension worth $134 million with the Packers, which runs through 2023 NFL season.
A look at Rodgers’s business ventures and endorsements
Rodgers announced in 2018 that he was a limited partner in the Milwaukee Bucks ownership group, becoming the first active NFL player with an ownership stake in the NBA franchise. He has reportedly launched a $50 million venture and growth-stage fund with Roth Capital in 2019. Rodgers is a general partner with Nate Raabe and Byron Roth.
Over the years, Rodgers has been the face of multiple brands that have contributed majorly to his overall wealth. He features in commercials including brands such as Adidas, Bose, Panini and Prevea Healthcare among others.
Rodgers has appeared in ‘The Office’, ‘Key & Peele’ and more
Rodgers’s wealth shouldn’t come as a shocker taking into his popularity on camera as well. Apart from his unique touchdown celebration, which is featured in a series of State Farm Insurance commercials, he has also appeared in Pizza Hunt advertisements.
Furthermore, he has made a cameo on the ninth and final season of the hit series ‘The Office’ and was also seen in the second season of the sketch television series ‘Key & Peele’. If reports are true, he will be a guest host on ‘Jeopardy!’ in 2021. He was previously seen as a contestant on ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ in 2015.
Rodgers previously dated NASCAR driver Danica Patrick from 2018 to 2020. In July last year, Patrick’s rep confirmed that the two were “no longer together”. The duo had reportedly bought a house together in Golden State, Malibu, for a whopping $28 million. The villa was previously owned by Robbie Williams who bought it in 2019 and others before him included Netflix Content Chief Ted Sarandos and Janet Jackson.
He also owns another house in Del Mar, worth $10 million. The property stretched up to 5,771 square feet and included four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna, a home theater, putting green, gym, batting cage, basketball court, and a spa, according to Cheat Sheet.
When are Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers getting married?
With Woodley’s latest revelation of her engagement to Rodgers, fans are eagerly waiting to learn about their wedding. However, since the couple chose to keep things between them “private and low key”, we couldn’t tell if they would do the same with their much-discussed wedding.
But, Rodgers is not shying away from talking about his fiancee when he finds an opportunity. In February, while accepting the Most Valuable Player award, he said in his speech, “It’s an honor to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year, filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hairs scraped. Playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season, I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career.”
