A league source with knowledge of the situation told PFT the Packers will extend Aaron Rodgers' contract "soon," and that it will "set a new benchmark that will stand for several years."
"It is his time," the source said. The NFL's best quarterback is signed through 2014, but the six-year, $65 million deal he inked in October 2008 is severely outdated. The former league and Super Bowl MVP is going to blow away Joe Flacco's $52 million guaranteed when he re-ups. CBS Sports reported Tuesday Rodgers has no plans to hold out this summer if he doesn't get a new deal.
