Packers GM: Rodgers extension coming ‘sooner rather than later’
Gutekunst was asked about the two-time NFL MVP at the combine. He says that the team realizes it’s “not going to be inexpensive.”
Rodgers is under contract through the 2019 season following a five-year extension signed in 2013 that boosted his annual average salary to $22 million, making him the highest-paid player in the league back then.
Gutekunst says that taking care of Rodgers is a high priority, “and I think that should take care of itself at some point.”
Gutekunst is in his first year as the Packers GM after replacing Ted Thompson.
