NFL via Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wisc.) -- Aaron Rodgers is now the richest quarterback in league history.

Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers signed a 5-year, $110 million deal on Friday afternoon, keeping him a Packer through 2019 according to an ESPN source.

 The deal makes him the highest paid player in NFL history.

  "An exciting day for our football program," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement. "Aaron is an excellent illustration of a Green Bay Packer. It is truly a blessing to witness his continued accomplishments, both on and off the field."

The 2011 NFL MVP has thrown for more than 21,000 yards and 171 touchdowns in his career, leading Green Bay to a Super Bowl title in 2010.
