LIV Golf may not be done adding big-name personalities to its league.
LIV Golf has been the talk of professional golf this summer as it has lured several top PGA Tour pros to its series with guaranteed contracts paying reportedly nine figures to its biggest stars, plus purses of $25 million at each event. Those types of numbers have grabbed the attention of one of the best NFL quarterbacks in history.
Over the past few years, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has dropped plenty of hints about his potential retirement. At age 38, Rodgers is the second oldest quarterback in the league. So it should come as little surprise that Rodgers is already planning for life after football.
During an appearance on the Pardon My Take podcast, the Green bay Packers QB suggested that he may be interested in joining the LIV Golf Tour and laid out how much it would take for him to join.
“Probably around Tigers number, 800 million. So there is a chance. Everybody’s got a price. Yeah. We’ve all got a price.”
LIV CEO Greg Norman confirmed last month that Tiger Woods received an offer around $800 million to make the jump from the PGA to LIV. That figure and opportunity was declined by the Golf GOAT.
LIV Golf is playing eight events this season and has announced it will play 14 events next year with four-man teams which will stay together throughout the year.
