Ranking the 5 Most Overpaid Athletes in Professional Sports

2 of 7

5. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Not a lot of people will agree with me on this choice, because Aaron Rodgers is one of the two or three quarterbacks in the league that all other quarterbacks are measured against.

However, his inability to get back to the Super Bowl, or even get deep into the playoffs, since 2011 leaves a question mark about his recent $110 million contract extension.

I am not saying Aaron Rogers isn’t a great quarterback, but to receive a $110 million contract, following a season in which his team bowed out in the divisional round for the second time in a row, is a little excessive.
