Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that the Green Bay Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers currently remain $2 million apart regarding a long-term extension. Rapoport mentions that the Packers current offer would pay him over $21 million per season, which is more in terms annual average than what Joe Flacco received a few months ago. Rapoport source adds that the two sides are still trying to work out how much money he’ll make during years 2014 and 2015. The report doesn’t say anything regarding the length of deal being discussed. ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported multiple times that Rodgers is likely to sign a four-year deal with the Packers, but we’ll have to see if that is in fact that case. Once Rodgers is taken care of, the Packers intend to address the contracts of OLB Clay Matthews and DT B.J. Raji at some point.
