Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that things are getting pretty close to an agreement with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, but they're still roughly $2 million per year apart on their offers, a source told him. Not too bad of a difference, that likely will work itself out in the coming days, and will as reported earlier, make Rodgers the highest paid QB in the league. The team's latest contract offer is reportedly around $21 million per year, which is better then the $20.6 million Joe Flacco just received. Per Rapoport: 'The two sides are also still haggling over how much money will come to Rodgers in the next two seasons, among other issues. Per the terms of the current deal that runs out in 2014, Rodgers is set to earn $19.75 over those two years. That makes him underpaid based on his status and performance. It is not clear how many years the possible new extension would run. But it is clear that Rodgers' agent David Dunn and members of the Packers brass have continued the momentum they built during talks in Arizona at the NFL Annual Meeting, where team president Mark Murphy called a new deal for Rodgers "a priority."' var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • Rodgers, take the money and run..Don't hold out for more and become viewed as a greedy QB..bad PR move.
  • Hey Rodgers maybe you can get the Army to increae my disability pay as a civilian I made $200,000.00 as an orthopedic PA. Now as a 100% disabled Veteran of the Iraqi war I can't even buy a used car because of my loss of income and what my ex did to my credit. I am not saying your not the best but there are some Veterans who gave and lost and we have no way of increasing our income for giving you pros the chance to do what your good at. What about us?
