Finally, a few weeks after deciding that they wanted to sign Rodgers to a new contract before the 2013 season, the Packers have started negotiating with Rodgers' agent. The star QB is set to make $19.75 million next season.
If a new contract does get done, Aaron's expected to make more than that each year for what will likely be many. I don't care how much they have to pay him as long as he signs. If they don't get him signed this offseason, I will see it as a failure and other teams will begin looking at him since he's gonna be a free agent after 2014. If you don't believe that there's a chance that he could leave Green Bay in a few years, you should look at the Wes Welker drama. He and the Pats were talking for years about a new deal that never got done. Now, he's a Bronco.
