What an Aaron Rodgers contract extension would look like
There’s been a lot of talk about a potential Aaron Rodgers contract extension should the two-time reigning NFL MVP opt to remain with the Green Bay Packers.
This is the backdrop as Rodgers makes a decision on his future here within the next couple weeks. As you likely already know, the future first ballot Hall of Famer is deciding whether to remain with the Packers, request a trade or retire altogether.
If the 38-year-old Rodgers were to remain with the Packers, he would want a new commitment from the team in terms of a contract extension. One recent report indicates that he’s demanding $50 million annually on a new contract. While Rodgers himself has pushed back against that, it’s a major backdrop in the drama that’s currently unfolding in Wisconsin.
Packers general manager Brian Gutenkunst spoke to the media from the site of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Tuesday, indicating that there’s been no new updates and he hopes to have a decision from Aaron Rodgers by the start of the new league year on March on March 16.
“I would hope so. A lot decisions have to be made before that,” Gutenkunst told reporters. The embattled front office head also noted that the financials are “part of the process” as it relates to talks with Rodgers.
