The Green Bay Packers got a big piece of business out of the way by re-signing linebacker Clay Matthews, but their top priority still remains unsigned.
According to Kareem Copeland of NFL.com, there hasn't been much movement since the Matthews deal was announced.
However, team GM Ted Thompson said the silence isn't due to a lack of progress, it's just standard operating procedure:
"We like to keep everything in-house, make sure we handle our business professionally. There is not a lot of buzz around these contract negotiations, as well as Aaron (Rodgers') here in the near future.
So I'm sure we will wake up one day and hopefully they will announce he is the highest-paid quarterback. In the meantime, you are not going to be hearing much grumbling from anyone."
