Aaron Rodgers is paid more than $1 million a year for his weekly appearances on Pat McAfee’s ESPN show.
“Aaron has definitely made over $1,000,000 with us,” McAfee confirmed to the New York Post on Wednesday.
Rodgers and Alabama coach Nick Saban are among the star-studded lineup appearing on The Pat McAfee Show.
And according to the Post, the former NFL player is using money from his own five-year, $85 million deal with ESPN to land such high-profile guests.
Rodgers has been a fixture on the show every Tuesday for the past few seasons. McAfee launched his show in 2019 and aired on YouTube before ESPN agreed to air the show starting in September.
Rodgers has used McAfee’s show to make several big announcements, including his decision to join the Jets from the Green Bay Packers.

He also came on the show to speak for the first time after tearing his Achilles tendon just four times in his debut for New York last month.
Earlier this week, Rodgers used his slot to challenge Travis Kelce to a debate on vaccinations after mocking the Chiefs star – Taylor Swift’s boyfriend – with the nickname ‘Mr Pfizer’.
Kelce stars in a Pfizer commercial encouraging people to get vaccinated and responded last week by saying he never expected to be part of the “vaccine war” with Rodgers, who is openly anti-vaxx.
During his weekly Tuesday appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Rodgers said, “I made a little joke about a guy who makes money for a corrupt company and everyone goes crazy.
‘There is a lot of propaganda, a lot of propaganda. Listen, Mr. Pfizer said he didn’t think he’d get into a war with me. It’s not a war homie, it’s a conversation – but if you want some kind of duel, a debate, come to the podcast. Those would be high viewing figures.’
