12:35 PM ET 03.28 | Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are getting closer to a long-term contract extension that would make the star quarterback the highest-paid player in NFL history, according to league sources. Both Rodgers and the Packers are hesitant to comment on a potential extension, but league-wide speculation is that the deal could average $25 million per year. Both sides have been extremely careful when publicly commenting on a deal. But those familiar with the contract talks believe a deal will be completed this offseason, and could happen sooner rather than later.

Agreed. Except for what is guaranteed and the cap hit during the first couple of years, the numbers are meaningless.
