Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to have a cap number a little over 20-and-a-half-million dollars this season, so lowering that might be part of a new deal between him and the team.
General Manager Brian Gutekunst continues to say he's confident an extension with Rodgers will be finalized during the off-season. Gutekunst says restructuring the deal to ease cap pressure could give the team a little more flexibility. The bottom line is, getting the Rodgers deal done is called a priority moving forward, no matter what the impact is on the bottom line. There are two years remaining on the current five-year, 110-million dollar agreement. Some experts are saying Rodgers big payday could earn him 30-million dollars-a-year.
