Report Reveals Aaron Rodgers’ Performance-Based Pay for Four Plays in 2023 in NFL

The performance-based pay system in the NFL rewards players based on their playtime and performance. However, injuries, fewer snaps or underperformance can result in lower earnings from this system. This was evident in the case of New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who played only four snaps in Week 1 and earned the lowest amount among all NFL players – $81.14.

On the other hand, players like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy and former Baltimore Ravens guard John Simpson benefited from the incentives and earned significantly more through the performance-based pay system. The system is designed to reward players for their playtime and base salary, with players earning more if they play a substantial amount of snaps, especially with a low base salary.

Rodgers signed a two-year deal with $75 million guaranteed through 2024, but took a pay cut to join the Jets. Despite his low earnings from the performance-based pay system this season, he is looking forward to returning next season and hoping for a healthier and more successful season. With his new contract and a potential longer playing time, Rodgers may see a significant increase in his paycheck in the future.
