Rodgers’ other ventures

Rodgers achieved a unique milestone in April 2018 when he became the first active NFL player to hold an ownership stake in an NBA franchise, the Milwaukee Bucks.

He acquired a mansion in Del Mar, California, for just over $2 million in 2009, later selling it in November 2021 for $5.1 million.

In December 2019, he made headlines again when he purchased an oceanfront Malibu mansion for a staggering $28 million.

This oceanfront oasis was previously owned by musician Robbie Williams, and Rodgers paid for it in full, without a mortgage.

Altogether, Rodgers’ earnings through 2023, encompassing both salaries and endorsements, amount to approximately $600 million.
