Aaron Rodgers has signed an extension with the Green Bay Packers, general manager Brian Gutekunst announced Wednesday. The record-breaking four-year, $134 million extensions could be worth up to $180 million in total money. Rodgers, who will be 40 years old when the deal expires after the 2023 season, praised the Packers on Instagram for an “amazing ride” late Wednesday afternoon.
The New York Jets clarified their crowded quarterback situation on Wednesday, trading Teddy Bridgewater and a 2019 sixth-round draft pick to the New Orleans Saints for a 2019 third-round pick. This reinforces the widespread belief that rookie Sam Darnold will be the Jets’ Week 1 starter. Josh McCown, 39, who didn’t play in the past two preseason games, is expected to be the No. 2. Bridgewater found out about the trade and boarded the team bus to say goodbye to his former teammates, who were heading to Philadelphia for Thursday’s preseason game.
The Houston Astros will sign manager A.J. Hinch to a contract extension today. Hinch, who guided the Astros to the franchise’s first World Series title last season, hasn’t had a losing season since taking over the team in 2015. The 44-year-old manager was under club option for 2019 and has a 353-266 record with the Astros through Wednesday’s 5-4 walk-off win over the Oakland Athletics.
