- Schefter adds that the agents for Rodgers and OLB Clay Matthews will want to have new contracts in place before the start of the Packers’ off-season workout program on April 15.
Schefter previously reported that Rodgers would likely receive a four-year deal that would pay him $20 million annually.
All indications have suggested that the Packers are prepared to make him the highest paid player in the game, and this kind of deal would easily accomplish that much. It will be interesting to see the amount of guaranteed money he gets in his next contract.
- 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.
