Aaron Rodgers had hoped to get an opt-out in his new contract with the Green Bay Packers, or tie his salary to a percentage of the salary cap.

The deal makes Rodgers the highest-paid player in the National Football League, topping Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who agreed to a five-year, $150 million deal in May.

In celebration of Rodgers' record-breaking contract extension, he and his girlfriend Danica Patrick popped a bottle of Armand De Brignac Brut Gold champagne engraved with "Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers", as seen on Patrick's IG story.
