According to NFL.com, the Packers are taking a break from their negotiations with Rodgers and are now focusing on re-signing star LB Clay Matthews to a deal that would pay #52 $13 million per season.
The deal would play Matthews a total of $78 million over 6 years. If it gets done, Clay would become the highest paid LB in the league.
Another source, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, is saying that the Pack are currently putting the finishing touches on both the contract for Matthews and the contract for Rodgers. If so, Ted Thompson can just sit back and relax. Knowing that he has two of the best players in the game re-signed before the draft.
