Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is hoping to get a contract extension in the near future. He could cash in with a deal worth around $150 million.
On Friday night, Rodgers has been announced as a limited partner of the Milwaukee Bucks. Rodgers, along with his girlfriend Danica Patrick, were in attendance, next to Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, sitting court side at the Bradley Center when the Bucks made the announcement in Game 3 against the Boston Celtics.
We do not know how much Rodgers had to shell out to become a limited partner. He joins the ownership group featuring Marc Lasry and Jamie Dinan besides Edens.
According to Edens, Rodgers is the first active player in the NFL to have an ownership stake in a major sports frachise.
“Aaron is a winner, a Wisconsin icon, and we are honored to welcome him to our partnership group of the Milwaukee Bucks,” Bucks co-owners Wes Edens, Marc Lasry, Jamie Dinan and Mike Fascitelli said, according to WTMJ-4. “With our team in the playoffs and our new world-class arena opening this fall, it’s an exciting time for this city and the Bucks. We are thrilled for Aaron to be with us.”
Rodgers was a first-round draft pick by the Packers in the 2006 NFL Draft. He has become a legend in Wisconsin, and in the NFL, after replacing former legend Brett Favre.
