The Green Bay Packers have agreed to a hefty extension with star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have agreed on a five-year, $110 million contract extension.

The deal will break an NFL record, eclipsing the $120.6 million over six years the Baltimore Ravens gave quaterback Joe Flacco in March.

Rodgers will make an astronomical $40 million in 2013. The extension will keep Rodgers in Green Bay through the 2019 season.

Rodgers has thrown for 21,661 yards and 171 touchdowns, and has had a quarterback rating of 101.2 or better in all but one season as a starter. His quarterback rating of 122.5 in 2011 is an NFL record. The Packers are 53-27 in Rodgers' five years as a starter, and he led them to the Super Bowl title following the 2010 season.

Locking up Rodgers was a priority for the Packers, who also reached a long-term extension with linebacker Clay Matthews III this month.
