How much does Aaron Rodgers get for State Farm adverts?
Green Bay Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers has been prominently featured in several iconic ads over a number of years with the insurance provider State Farm.
State Farm is the largest property and casualty insurance provider in the United States. It is also the largest auto insurance agency in the country, and thanks to attention from celebrities like Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes, their aim is to remain on top for years to come.
The company saw $3.7 billion net income in 2020, based on their latest reports, which allows them to continue pulling in big-name spokespeople.
Why does Aaron Rodgers get paid by State Farm?
Aaron Rodgers, who is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, is in his 16th season with the Green Bay Packers, and has been a “great ambassador” for State Farm over the past decade, according to a statement provided to CNN Business.
Rodgers, who has been featured in State Farm’s television ads for several years now, gets paid an approximate $2-3 million for his services, according to Yahoo!
Even though the amount seems like a lot of money, Rodgers has been prominently featured in several iconic ads that have created much audience success. We’ve shared a compilation of all Rodgers’ ads with State Farm so far.
State Farm respects Aaron Rodgers' rights
As Rodgers continues to promote State Farm with his appearances and famous profile, his recent covid-19 incident set him back with the company, but not fully.
Following last week’s drama with Rodgers missing Sunday’s game against the Chiefs because of testing positive for coronavirus, with it then emerging he was not vaccinated, State Farm stood firmly by their mission to “support safer, stronger communities.”
A lot of NFL fanatics were affected by the MVP’s decision and response to whether he was vaccinated, including the Packers who were fined over $300,000 for covid protocol violations.
Even though State Farm did not support decisions that Rodgers have made, they stand by his right to decide matters such as covid vaccinations for himself, "We don't support some of the statements that he has made, but we respect his right to have his own personal point of view. We recognize our customers, employees, agents and brand ambassadors come from all walks of life, with differing viewpoints on many issues,” a State Farm spokesperson said.
One of Rodgers' other corporate partners, Prevea Health, decided it could no longer continue with the QB in light of his comments on vaccines.
Rodgers to start against Seahawks
The Packers quarterback was activated off the covid-19 list coming into this weekend and is expected to start against the Seahawks on Sunday. Kick-off is at 4.25pm ET. Check out the full NFL schedule for this weekend.
