I just heard it reported on ESPN News. They didn't give contract details. Can anyone find a link?

The Green Bay Packers have announced that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has signed a long-term contract extension.

The extension locks Rodgers up through the 2014 season, General Manager Ted Thompson said in the teams statement.

As we talked about in the past, we try to be proactive in our discussions with our current players and we felt like this was an appropriate time to try to come to an agreement with Aaron, Thompson said. We feel like this is good for the organization and the players, and we will continue this approach as we move forward.

The 24-year-old Rodgers was the Packers first-round draft pick in 2005. After spending three seasons as Brett Favres backup, he has started all seven games this season and has a 98.8 passer rating.

I jus saw it on ESPNews, I'm somewhat surprised but I dont think he'll be as big of a risk with the extension as Grant. I'm looking foward to the Rodgers era!

He should have honored his current contract and played it out.

(This will be the undoing of TT....guaranteed!)

Haha, I will take that to the storage, we'll see in three years (or however long it takes for you to realize A-Rod is a great QB).

Hmmm didn't the Packers keep extending another QB through the 90's and into this century well in advance to his contract expiring.. pretty damn sure they did.

That is smart money.. if the duck quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and can throw the damn football like an NFL QB.. you lock his arse up.

Look for the same positive FA effect this team has with a solid NFL QB in the fold.. glad they got this deal done.

uffda udfa (56m) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (4h) : It's just fine.
musccy (5h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (5h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (6h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (6h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (6h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (7h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (7h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (7h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (11h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (11h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (11h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (11h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (13h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (13h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (13h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (14h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (15h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (16h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (16h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (16h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (16h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (16h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (16h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (16h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (22h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
