I'm thinking they will go with a 4-6 year deal for Rodgers worth more than anyone else right now, that way it will be much easier to extend a 4-6 year contract after 3 years than it would a 10 year contract.

Much easier to convert 1-3 years of a contract to "signing bonus money" than it is to restructure a 10 year contract after the 1st 3 years.

Again, these contracts are all about the "guaranteed money", on paper Aaron will be the highest paid qb in The NFL only until one of the other "elite" qb's sign their new contract.

Not sure how this thread turned into a "Brett Favre" topic, but it's good to read that most have not forgotten!!!! [laughing]


I still think longer term is better. With the 4-6 year idea, we go through this uncertainty again then. The only way the shorter is better is if you think Rodgers will have diminished ability that soon - which I doubt. Even then, the ten year deal with guaranteed money only for the first five, as I wrote it up, leaves the team a lot of flexibility. Also, do the numbers, and I think you will find much higher cap numbers in the early years your way. The relevance of Favre to this is the fact mentioned in the JSOnline article that unlike most long term deals, he stayed long enough to receive virtually all of it. Barring injury, I think Rodgers would do the same.

I am going to go with my original prediction that he gets a 10 (lifetime - where have we heard that before) contract that ensures he retires a Packer. I see that happening. I also see them restructuring it after a few years to afford other players.

Frankly, I feel that Dhazer owes Ted and I a big-league blow-job for our work thus far in keeping Rodgers salary in check as much as is possible.

Flapper

I also feel our opportunity has passed, his hated boy Ted failed, and we are going to fall until the next great qb, THAT MUST BE CHEAP, ALSO.

I remember Dhazer HATED the contract when they signed Rodgers in 2008. Now it's the best contract in the nfl. lol
