It appears Aaron Rodgers just might be getting a new deal soon.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers and the agents for QB Aaron Rodgers are working on a contract, and while things haven’t finished yet, the two sides are at least in discussions about his potential return to Green Bay. Rapoport says that these negotiations are designed to have a deal ready to go once Rodgers is ready to make an announcement.
According to Rapoport, this would be a “short-term” deal that would likely make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the NFL. Rapoport adds that the Packers “hope and believe” Rodgers will want to back with them.
“Nothing is done, but the two sides are at least going back and forth, having discussions, waiting for Rodgers to make his decision,” Rapoport said. “Of course, the Packers want to do nothing to get in the way of that, but they hope and believe he’ll want to come back.”
Last week, reports suggested Rodgers was looking to be the highest-paid player in the NFL by a “wide margin” and that he was looking for around $50 million per year as part of an extension with the Packers.
Rodgers later refuted this report in a response to Pat McAfee.
In 2021, Rodgers appeared in 16 games for the Packers and completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions.
