Packers GM Brian Gutekunst told PFT Live he expects the team and Aaron Rodgers to "come to an agreement soon" on a new contract.
There were reports of Rodgers being frustrated by the team not consulting him before cutting Jordy Nelson and firing QBs coach Alex Van Pelt, but the general manager does not seem to be worried about those frustrations affecting contract talks. "We’re pretty confident that this is something that’s taking its normal course, its normal time," Gutekunst said. Rodgers might wait until Matt Ryan signs his expected contract extension, but this deal should get done before Week 1. May 3 - 10:23 AM

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reports Aaron Rodgers is both "frustrated" and "emotional" because he was not consulted before the Packers made some significant personnel decisions this offseason.

Robinson reports the specific moves which have Rodgers miffed are the decisions to cut ties with Jordy Nelson and QBs coach Alex Van Pelt. "Both of those decisions were made without him," a source told Robinson. "In both situations, he had no influence with [the front office] before anything went down." Rodgers made some noise about the Van Pelt decision when it happened, calling it "curious" and "interesting" before making it clear he was not consulted about the move. There clearly seems to be some friction between Rodgers and the front office, and that could prove troublesome as the two sides look to work out a mega-extension this summer. Rodgers has two more years left on his deal.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports a deal between Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is "unlikely to be done" before Kirk Cousins signs.

Robinson also said the Packers and Rodgers are "extremely close" to getting a deal done. Cousins is expected to become the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL this offseason, giving Rodgers ample reason to wait and try and top however much Cousins receives.
Mar 3 - 10:47 AM

Appearing on PFT Live, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he would like to get Aaron Rodgers' contract extension done "sooner rather than later."

The quarterback market could change dramatically with Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees scheduled to be free agents and Matt Ryan likely to land an extension, so it makes sense for the Packers to sign Rodgers before the asking price gets any higher. Rodgers' side knows the lay of the land as well, however, making it likely they wait to see how the market shakes out before agreeing to anything. No matter when it happens, Rodgers' next deal will make him the highest paid player in the league.
Mar 1 - 8:50 AM

Packers president Mark Murphy said the team is working on an extension for Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers became the league's highest-paid player when he signed a five-year, $110 million extension in 2013. He has since outplayed that deal and is now the sixth-highest-paid quarterback. The expectation is Rodgers' new deal will surpass the $27.5 million per year that Jimmy Garoppolo got from the 49ers earlier this year. Rodgers is still technically in his prime at 34 years old.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette expects the Packers to extend Aaron Rodgers after the draft.

The Packers have Rodgers signed through 2019 but want to extend him this offseason. Rodgers will likely wait to see what Kirk Cousins gets in free agency before signing, so it may be closer to training camp until anything gets done. Rodgers' next deal will make him the highest paid player in the league with an annual salary in the range of $30 million. There have been rumblings Green Bay could give Rodgers a fully guaranteed short-term extension.

Aaron Rodgers expects to be full-go for OTAs.

"Feeling great. Back into everything I like to do in the offseason with my training, and I’ll be ready to go in April." Rodgers hasn’t had any limitations in his workouts and looks to be fully over his collarbone injury. With Joe Philbin returning as coordinator, the Packers could make some offensive changes this offseason.
Feb 6 - 9:05 AM

Speaking on Golic and Wingo Thursday morning, Aaron Rodgers said his collarbone is "fine."

He even felt good enough to play a round of golf Wednesday at the Waste Management Pro-Am in Scottsdale. The two-time MVP came back from his collarbone injury in Week 15 but returned to I.R. a week later after the Packers were eliminated from postseason contention. In the interview, Rodgers also revealed he was unhappy the team fired QBs coach Alex Van Pelt, calling it an "interesting decision" while claiming the Packers never consulted him on it. The 34-year-old should be ready well in advance of OTAs.
Feb 1 - 9:58 AM

Multiple teams have complained about the Packers' decision to place Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) on injured reserve following last week's loss to the Panthers.

Rodgers came off injured reserve to play Week 15, but returned a week later after the Packers were eliminated from the postseason. In order to be placed on IR, a player needs to have suffered a new injury that would sideline him for at least six weeks. Per NFL rules, if a player is sent to IR without suffering a new injury, the team is required to release him once healthy. It's fairly obvious that Green Bay bent the rules in regards to Rodgers' injury, though there's little chance of the Packers releasing their franchise cornerstone.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, injured reserve) will not need another surgery.

It confirms the Packers were just being cautious by placing Rodgers on injured reserve. "Aaron's in rest and recovery mode," McCarthy said. "He has a distinct rehab plan as he moves forward." Rodgers should be 100 percent well before the offseason program.

Packers placed QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Making his long-awaited return, Rodgers did not look like himself in last week's playoff-eliminating loss to the Panthers, tossing three interceptions for the first time since 2009. It's still baffling the Packers decided he was healthy enough for that game but not Weeks 16 and 17. Coach Mike McCarthy had expressed displeasure with how many hits Rodgers took. Now 34, Rodgers will head into the offseason having made his fewest appearances (seven) since 2007. Rodgers did not appear diminished athletically this season, but he's obviously nearing an age where that will soon become a certainty. That being said, there's still every reason to believe he will remain an elite fantasy option in 2018.

Coach Mike McCarthy was noncommittal when asked if Aaron Rodgers would start Week 16 against the Vikings.

"He took too many hits," McCarthy said, saying Rodgers is sore. With the Packers as extreme long shots to make the playoffs -- and eliminated if the Falcons win Monday night -- Green Bay may just opt to go with Brett Hundley the final two weeks. Rodgers' collarbone is 100% but not worth the risk.

Aaron Rodgers completed 26-of-45 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Packers' 31-24, Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

He added six rushes for 43 yards. Making his first start since Week 6, Rodgers tossed three interceptions for the first time since 2009. Rodgers' timing simply wasn't there. INT No. 1 was a forced throw off his back foot under pressure. No. 2 was a sailed ball you basically never see Rodgers throw. No. 3 was under-thrown deep to Jordy Nelson. Rodgers was also inaccurate on a few other critical passes, including a late third quarter third down. The loss just about makes it impossible for the Pack to make the playoffs. Rodgers has a tough matchup for Week 16 in the Vikings.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said before Sunday's game in Carolina that he's "cutting" Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) "loose" against the Panthers.

"I'm cutting him loose," was McCarthy's exact quote. Despite Rodgers' injury layoff, it's no surprise because the Packers have averaged nearly eight more dropbacks per game with Rodgers starting as opposed to Brett Hundley, and the best way to attack the Panthers' defense is via the pass. Rodgers should be fired up as a top-eight fantasy quarterback play in all formats in his first game back.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 12:51:00 PM

Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is active and starting for Week 15 against the Panthers.

Rodgers returns from his seven-game layoff as a top-five option for the fantasy semifinals. Inactive for the Packers are CB Davon House, CB Demetri Goodson, OT Ulrick John, G/T Adam Pankey, WR Michael Clark, DT Montravius Adams and LB Chris Odom.
