Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers were reunited at the NFL Awards show this winter.
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel beat writer Tom Silverstein caught up with Packers president Mark Murphy on Monday at the NFL Owners meetings in Phoenix.
As a favor to bloggers and online media outlets, Murphy talked about two Packers that generate a ton of clicks and web traffic: Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
On the former, Murphy says progress has been made toward getting Favre’s jersey retired in Green Bay. On the latter, Murphy said cash will not be a problem in extending Aaron Rodgers’ contract.
“I don’t want to put a deadline on it, but it’s going to happen,” Murphy said. “It’s got to be sitting down, the organization, whether it’s myself or others, sitting down with him and working on the timing on it.”
“A priority as an organization…We all want to see it get done,” Murphy said. He did not know the progress of talks between Rodgers’ representatives and Packers negotiator Russ Ba

News and Notes:
Based on the comments from my previous draft posts, I’d like to point out that this is a prospect profile, not a draft prediction. I haven’t analyzed...

Aaron Rodgers is not paid like one of the NFLs best quarterbacks. The Green Bay Packers want to put an end to that.
The 2011 NFL Most Valuable Player has two years left on a contract that Rodgers agreed to with the Packers in 2008 when he was midway through his first season as Green Bays starting quarterback.
Rather than having Rodgers, 29, play out those final two years at a rate...
It’s that time of year when every “football analyst” comes out of the wood work to give their two cents on where they expect players to fall in the draft.
As I was going through the latest mock drafts, I saw one prediction that made my jaw absolutely drop. Vanderbilt’s Jordan Rodgers, little brother to Aaron Rodgers, would be picked up by Green Bay in the 7th round.
Packers’ president Mark Murphy mentioned that getting QB Aaron Rodgers signed to a long-term contract extension before the start of the season remains a “priority.”
“It’s a priority,” Murphy said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I think as an organization, I think we all want to see that get done.”
The Packers have shed a good amount of cap space in the past...
With a signing bonus alone nearing $30 million, the Green Bay Packers will soon offer dynamic quarterback Aaron Rodgers an extension worth anywhere between $110 and $160 million. The total amount will be contingent on the exact length and terms of the deal. After thoroughly outplaying Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick, and guiding the Ravens to a 34-31 upset victory...
THE OLD GUNSLINGER
New Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings says that Brett Favre played a role in convincing him that signing with Minnesota was the right decision.
We noted before that one of the women who attended a recent Divas camp at WWE developmental was named Jenn Sterger, an actress and TV host with modeling experience. Sterger was in the news back in 2010 when reports came out that NFL quarterback Brett Favre was alleged to have sent her explicit text messages and voicemails asking her to come to his hotel rooms. Favre also allegedly...
Greg Jennings said he communicated with Brett Favre a few times during his visit to Minnesota, a 24-hour period that ended with Jennings signing a five-year contract with $18 million in guarantees.
During an interview with Paul Allen of KFAN, Greg Jennings said that Brett Favre gave him an idea of how it is to play for the Minnesota Vikings.
Jennings said that he was talking to Favre while meeting with the Vikings’ front office,
“Literally, as I got off the plane and (offensive coordinator Bill) Musgrave walked up to me, I’m on the phone with Brett,” Jennings said on...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Hasselbeck started his career as a backup to Brett Favre. He could end it being the backup to Andrew Luck.
