Re: Packers, Rodgers Agree on Contract Extension

No way JC signs an extension during this season.

Reason #1 The Front Office needs to see him finish this season the way he started so that they can justify giving him franchise QB money.

Reason #2 His agent needs to see him finish this season the way he started so that he can get JC stupid ridiculous hella franchise QB money.

Re: Packers, Rodgers Agree on Contract Extension

See for us this is the thing that sucks about finally having a good Quarterback. Now we have to pay him.

It doesn't suck at all, the market is what it is. JC will just reap the benefits of his great play with a big check (soon), as any other QB of his talent level which happens to be much higher than rodgers. Just like the unproven knucklehead in the thread title getting that kinda cash. JC should do much better than that with his new contract, no discounts. You have to pay the man market value.

This is one of the best things thats ever happened on Dans watch, hes found a QB after looking high and low for 10 years. For the Redskins to finally have a franchise QB they can build this team around, now Danny boy will simply have to pull out that checkbook.

Re: Packers, Rodgers Agree on Contract Extension

I think Tuesday is the deadline to sign extensions that increase salary for this current season. It would be pretty cool to beat Pittsburgh and then send JC into the bye week with a nice fat wallet. I don't think it will be a distraction at all. He deserves it, mid-season extensions happen all the time, just pay him. LaCanfora thinks he's gonna get Big Ben type money, or more. In the $40M guaranteed range with a max value around $100M. Sounds like Vinny has no interest in paying him until after the season:

Re: Packers, Rodgers Agree on Contract Extension

WOW good article GM . . . unless JC leads the skins to a SB win or atleast a 12-4 season with a SB appearance i dont think he should get big ben 100M money. But, like the article says, Eli is going to sign a whooper of a contract and JC and segal could def argue they are in that range and not aaron rodgers value.

I say wait till the offseason, if JC continues to do well but we dont put it all together this year give him rodgers type money; if he leads us to a SB appearance with great play then give him eli/big ben money.

I am really scared to see what the giants are going to overpay for eli.

go skins!!

Re: Packers, Rodgers Agree on Contract Extension

Jason will get a big contract because he deserves one. If it becomes a cap problem, I would'nt be surprised to see them rework it. Jason seems like the kind of guy who would go for that to help the team. I think Cooley did the same thing did'nt he? Either way I think you have to see how the season ends before you make an offer.

Well to be more specific this is the part of the good thing that sucks. I'm certain that the rest of you don't think that I thought Jason Campbell playing well was a bad thing I don't know though, I mean part of me is a little worried about the fact that we might have to choose between Grif, Washington, and Springs next year as well as the fact that we have the whole labor union debacle going on. However by no means am I against paying Campbell what he's worth, instead I'm just bummed that we might not be able to have it all, I mean what happens when I play as the Redskins on Madden next year?

The longer you wait the higher the price will be if Campbell keeps playing like this. If the Skins make a deep playoff run, he will definitely be able to demand more than Romo or Rogers, epecially if Romo still doesn't have a playoff victory.

RODGERS BASE SALARY FOR 2008? $23.7 MILLION

Posted by Mike Florio on November 4, 2008, 5:24 p.m.
As it turns out, the contract signed by the Packers and Aaron Rodgers was completed on Saturday, November 1. The fact that it didn’t show up on a computer system available to teams prompted some to conclude that the deal wasn’t completed before the November 3 deadline for counting 2008 salary increases against the 2008 salary cap.
So the Packers were able to take advantage of this tweak in the rules.
And did they ever.
Rodgers’ 2008 base salary was increase from $680,000 to a whopping $23.7 million. Since half the 2008 season is over, he’ll receive $12.9 million in total 2008 base salary. (The numbers were first reported by Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.)
Rodgers also is due to receive a $7.42 million roster bonus in early 2009, which as we’re told is fully guaranteed for skill and injury.
Per Demovsky, the deal includes non-guaranteed base salaries of $680,000 in 2009, $6 million in 2010, $7.25 million in 2011, $8 million in 2012, $9.25 million in 2013, and $10.5 million in 2014.
In the end, Rodgers’ cap number for 2008 went from $1.7 million to $13.9 million. And this means that the Packers are now well above the spending minimum — and that they still have more than $8 million or so to spend in 2008, if they so choose.
