|Aaron Rodgers became the NFL’s highest-paid player of all-time after signing a contract extension through 2019 during the draft. |
He led the NFL with a 108.0 passer rating.
He ranked second with 39 touchdown passes, third with 67.0 percent accuracy, tied for fourth with eight interceptions and finished eighth with 4,295 yards. His touchdown-to-interception ratio of nearly 5-to-1 led the league by a mile.
He dominated on third down (first with a 110.8 rating), in the red zone (second with a 109.9 rating) and against the blitz (fourth with a 117.4 rating).
He helped his team overcome a bunch of injuries, including to his top two threats in the passing game, to win 11 games and a division championship.
In most seasons, that would be enough to make Aaron Rodgers a leading candidate for NFL MVP honors. He won that award in 2011 after posting arguably the greatest quarterback season in the history of football.
Statistically, Rodgers needs to be considered among the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Five years as the starter isn’t a long enough body of work, obviously, but he’s the league’s career leader in passer rating, interception percentage and touchdown-to-interception ratio by wide margins. He also inched back ahead of Tom Brady for the top spot with 28.1 points per start.
