Schefter says the Packers are offering concessions to Rodgers. A deal is not done yet but it is close. He also says the concessions do not involve more money. Green Bay’s offer includes:
- Voiding the 2023 year of Rodgers’ deal
- Adding a no-tag clause in the future
- Agreeing to review Rodgers’ situation at the end of the 2021 season
- Adjusting Rodgers’ current contract to give Green Bay more cap space now and ensure no loss of income
- Mechanisms to address Rodgers’ other issues with the team
This matches up with a report from earlier today that Rodgers has been telling people close to him he expects to play this year in Green Bay.
With training camp set to begin for the Packers tomorrow, it appears we might finally be approaching a resolution to this offseason’s biggest story.
Rodgers, 37, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2005. He agreed to a four-year, $134 million extension that includes over $100 million guaranteed in 2018.
Rodgers is owed base salaries of $15.05 million and $25 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2020, Rodgers appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns.
