Found March 20, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy acknowledged publically that the team is pursuing a long-term contract extension with quarterback Aaron Rodgers that would likely be done before the start of the regular season, according to Tom Silverstein of The Journal Sentinel. Murphy called a pending extension agreement with Rodgers “a priority.” "It's a priority," Murphy said. "I think as an organization, I think we all want to see that get done." While Murphy doesn’t know where the negotiations between the team and Rodgers’ agent stand, he did say that coming up with the upfront money it will cost to sign the quarterback won’t be a problem. A deal between the Packers and Rodgers could be worth as much as $50 million in guaranteed money, according to Silverstein. Rodgers is currently in the sixth year of the seven-year, $65 million contract he signed in 2008. He is scheduled to make $9.75 million this year, far below market value for a quarterback of his standing.
