What Is Jordan Rodgers' Brother's Net Worth? Aaron Rodgers Is Worth A Lot

ABC

If Jordan Rodgers were any other guy competing on The Bachelorette with his "Former Pro Quarterback" title card, most rational dudes would experience a healthy sense of intimidation. He's super cute, mega charming, and possess an approximately one billion-watt smile. Especially for a Bachelorette who's a sports fan, like JoJo, Jordan is a hugely impressive contender. Unfortunately for him, he shares a season Chad, so the fact that he happens to be Aaron Rodgers' younger brother is all the ammo a Bachelorette villain needs to tear him down. So what is Jordan Rodgers' brother, Aaron Rodgers' net worth?

In 2013, Aaron Rodgers inked a deal with the Green Bay Packers "that made him the highest paid player in the NFL on an annual basis," according to Forbes, which guaranteed him at least $54 million. It was a five-year, $110 million contract that would pay out $62.5 million in the first three years of the deal, and it came with a $35 million dollar signing bonus. That's on top of the money he makes with Nike and State Farm Insurance sponsorship deals, which add about $7.5 million a year to his pot. Forbes put his earnings for 2015 at $19.1 million altogether, while CelebrityNetWorth clocks his net worth in at $30 million.

It's an impressive haul, but Aaron Rodgers' anomalously high rate of success on the football field only serves to further separate him from his brother Jordan, not to measure them in comparison. Aaron Rodgers is obviously a hugely successful player with an unheard of contract. Jordan just so happened to also play football, and was more in the middle of the pack, but that doesn't mean that he's a "failure" in comparison to his brother; it just means they have different strengths and whatever Jordan winds up excelling at is not going to be making money playing football.

It's childish and silly for Chad to lob "insults" like "the best thing about Jordan is that his brother is Aaron Rodgers and the worst thing about Jordan is that he's not his brother," because the same could easily be said about Chad. Chad is also not Aaron Rodgers. Neither is anyone else in the house, and neither was Ben. It's an apples and oranges comparison that has no bearing on what a good guy Jordan could wind up being. Jordan probably has plenty of irrational sibling rivalry insecurities he's bringing to the table. There's no need to add to his load by confirming them.
