Can't wait until they lose all their depth. Sad that he is still a packer, but that much was obvious. Pay him everything!

With this contract and Mathews insane contract, the packers are going to have draft amazing to be real contenders

He's a greedy, selfish player who hates his teammates.

He's underpaid. Just imagine if he or Drew Brees were baseball players. They would be getting 10 years, $200+ million easy.

This Aaron Rodgers interview on NFLN is gold

Just asked Mayock about his brother draft prospects and Mayock was squirming in his seat

Rich Eisen just said. "I know you're a Game of Thrones fan. So like the Lannister you are, they always pay their debt.'

Aaron replied "I dont like being lumped with the Lannister's I'm more of a Stark kind of guy."

The $22 million annual average applies over the five years of the extension. That’s the new-money average. Tacking on the two years at $20 million that Rodgers was due to earn under his existing deal, it’s a seven-year, $130 million contract.

That’s an average of $18.5 million — well short of the $20.1 million high-water mark set by Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco last month.

Rodgers’ decision to expose himself to the petty “whose is bigger?” comparisons reflects a pragmatism that will help the Packers remain competitive, if of course they’re willing to spend their cap money. Per a source with knowledge of the deal, Rodgers’ cap number never exceeds $21 million in any year of the contract. In contrast, Flacco’s deal has cap numbers of $28.55 million in 2016, $31.15 million in 2017, and $24.75 million in 2018.

I get your overall premis and agree, but as long as Rodgers is there and healthy, they'll be real contenders just about every year IMO.
