The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Aaron Rodgers to a long-term contract extension through the 2014 season.
Packers general manager Ted Thompson said, "As we talked about in the past, we try to be proactive in our discussions with our current players and we felt like this was an appropriate time to try to come to an agreement with Aaron." "We feel like this is good for the organization and the players, and we will continue this approach as we move forward."
Rodgers was the Packers' first-round draft pick in 2005. He has started all seven games for the Packers this season and has thrown for 1,668 yards and 12 touchdowns with a 98.8 passer rating.
