I posted this in Packer Forum. It took me some time and calculating hahaha, so I will get double use and post it here too.

As great as Clay Matthews is, the supreme superstar of this team is Aaron Rodgers. Maybe they get the Matthews deal done first because his contract runs out a year early, but I sincerely hope both are wrapped up before this season starts. The four year thing suggested above seems too short term IMO. Favre got a ten year deal at I think an older age. I would like to see something at least that long term for Rodgers - and that would be truly historic $200 million being not even close; $300 million not out of the realm of possibility. As many say, the guaranteed money is what counts (Favre's deal kinda disproved that). I wouldn't be surprised if they GUARANTEE something like $100 million. Try this for Rodgers: $50 million bonus, $5 million next season, with $10, 12, 14, 17, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 million - a total of $258 over ten years, maybe guarantee the first 5 seasons - $108 million. Too extreme? I don't think so. That's just a $10 million cap hit the first year and $5 million above the base all the other years. Try this for Matthews: $12 million bonus, $2 million base the first year, $7, 8, 9, 12, 15 million for years 2 - 6, maybe guarantee 3 or 4 of it - $17 or 26 million, a total $65 million over six years. His cap hit would only be $4 million the first year and $2 million above the base each of the other years.

30 million dollars a year for a 10 year deal when the highest paid QB now makes 20.1 million a year is within the realm of possibility? I suppose it is if you subscribe to the "anything is possible" philosophy but realistically.... no

Actually $25.8 million per year - $258 divided by 10. Rodgers is worth at least that much more than the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th best. Besides, the cap will go up every year, so the high end amounts won't seem so bad toward the end of the contract. And if, heaven forbid, he fades after 5 or 6 years, the biggest amounts at the end aren't guaranteed anyway.

Worth is relative, and I like to at least think that Rodgers is smart enough to get #3 - #5 money and leave a few million more a year for better players around him.

Coleman sucks, all he cares about is throwing the deep ball because somehow that's going to eventually erase Rodgers and Favre from the record books.
thanks Post received 3 applause.

Maybe, or he might conclude that Thompson wouldn't spend it anyway. I see a streak in Rodgers that he doesn't appreciate anybody being drafted/rated/paid higher than him.

My point in calculating out real numbers above for Rodgers and Matthews, however, is that the Packers indeed CAN afford to pay both of them top dollar without the cap hit being too extreme to get whatever else we need.

Yeah, I did write that hahahaha. When I calculated it, it came to $258 million. I wouldn't rule out making it even longer, 11 or 12 years, and then it certainly could be over $300 million. It might not ever reach those final years anyway, and if prestige is a motivator for Rodgers, a super huge backloaded contract might do the trick.
