Rodgers responds.

 

It’s been an amazing ride the last 13 years; excited to start year 14 knowing that my future is here, in Green Bay, for our 100th season. I’ve grown up in this place, and grown older and a little wiser along the way. Thank you to our incredible fan base for inspiring us players to be better year after year. Thank you to the Packers organization for standing by me time and time again and giving me the opportunity to lead this football team. And thank you to my teammates along the way, past and present who have impacted my life in so many positive ways, giving me friendships for life. Looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year, and for years to come.... #packers100thseason #packersfamily #packerforlife #midrange

1:01 p.m.

The Rodgers deal will be the largest in NFL history for both average salary and guaranteed money.

Original story

A report says that the Green Bay Packers and their all-world quarterback have a new contract done.

James Jones of NFL Network, a former Packers teammate, reports Rodgers will receive $100 million in guaranteed money for a new four-year deal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com adds details on total amounts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this first Wednesday afternoon.

There had been reports that Rodgers has wanted the ability to negotiate more opportunities to renegotiate his deal. He has also expressed a desire to stay with the Packers for his entire career.

It is expected that Rodgers will make a large percentage of his new contract guaranteed money.
