Aaron Rodgers and new contract

Recommended Posts

Apparently Rap said on NFLN 33m for Rodgers and the deal is close, should be done before summer. He hasn't tweeted it yet.

I saw on a FB thing that some former Packer (JJ?) Is going to break it.

Honestly, $33mil is a number that’s probably the most defensible and easy to move on from figure.  Do it, explain it, move on from it, and hope we get another Super Bowl or three before it’s all in the books.  Less or more money and there will be drama.  Any talk about expecting Rodgers to take less “for the good of the team” is foolish and unrealistic.

You would be surprised at the number of people I’ve met who think he should only take 20 or so because “what’s really the difference?”.

Like you said just get it over with and move on

I mean I get that too, but it's not a discussion for a football forum and is entirely orthogonal to anything that's actually going to happen in the real world

A $33 million here, another $33 million there, sooner or later it starts to add up to real money.

This was first reported on Thursday, mostly discussed Friday and still carrying over to today. Does that make it #fakenewsthursday, #fakenewsfriday or do we just go straight to #fakenewsweekend?

I'd be willing to bet anything Rodgers gets his 33m and there is no opt outs.

Hell if I know. You have to take everything with a grain of salt these days

It is a bit troubling that as of late, agents / players are not just pushing the $ envelope, but everything else under the sun too. Football players have been eyeing those NBA contracts for years. The next contract talks should be interesting
