Aaron Rodgers, Packers making progress on extension

Aaron Rodgers, Packers making progress on extension”

New Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst doesn't want to wait much longer to get franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers signed to a contract extension.

As for the rest of combine week, his first as a GM, Gutekunst said getting to know the college prospects through the interview process is a key component. I think we have a great relationship. His salary-cap figures are similar.

Rodgers still has two years remaining on the five-year, $110 million deal he signed in 2013, per Spotrac.

In the time since Rodgers signed his deal, several quarterbacks have been signed to new contracts that exceed his in total payout, average annual value, and guaranteed money.

Rodgers would be wise to wait until Cousins gets his deal - and perhaps until Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan gets his expected new contract - before signing his extension.

T.J. Patrick, Danica's father, has been an outspoken critic of football players kneeling during the national anthem. "Obviously, Aaron is a high priority".

Later, Gutekunst added that he "wouldn't expect it to be real difficult" to get the deal done.

Although he kept the Packers alive in the playoff race to make Rodgers' return in Week 15 meaningful thanks to a pair of overtime wins against the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he struggled again in the final two regular-season games after Rodgers returned to injured reserve.

"This is about unity and love and growing together as a society, and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people", Rodgers said. "I'm going to continue to make myself an indispensable part of this roster".

Head coach Mike McCarthy was one of those awfully excited by the term.

"I spoke to Aaron after the incident", McCarthy said in November. But I don't know if what they accomplished really changes our outlook on it. "But there are restraints and there's things that every decision kind of affects something else, so we kind of want to let all the information come in before we get to that point". Bennett will retain the $6.2 million. So I think as my mentor and predecessor would say, you have to be very cautious as you enter that.
