I am very happy a pick my Giants made, while many are saying "who is Pugh?" Very happy.
Packers picked "Twotone" Jones, or something like that.
I see that Aaron Rodgers just signed his contract extension. No details on the money though. Has to be 21m-23m a year. What's the deal RK?
Looks like Rodgers got $110mil over 5 years. Riches deal in NFL history!
Our Aaron, Aaron Nola is pitching tonight against S Carolina.;-)
Nola, who leads the SEC with 82 strikeouts, has lowered his ERA to 2.15.
Packers signed QB Aaron Rodgers to a five-year, $110 million extension through 2019.
The front-loaded deal pays Rodgers $40 million in year one, explaining why GM Ted Thompson was so conservative with his 2013 cap. It's a savvy deal by Thompson, but we've come to expect nothing less. Rodgers is now under control through his age-35 season. Theoretically, he can hit free agency in 2020 at age 36. Because Rodgers had two relatively cheap years remaining on his old deal, the new contract is worth $130.75 million over seven seasons, for an annual average of $18.68 million; Joe Flacco received an annual average of $20.1 million. The Rodgers deal is widely being pumped up as the richest in NFL history, but in actuality it's very much not. Another steal by Thompson.

Awesome 2nd pick by the Packers in getting La. RB via Bama, Eddie Lacy. He ran right through ND in the BCS Champ game.
