NFL - US Sports: Packers 'working on huge Rodgers deal'

The Green Bay Packers are reportedly working on fresh contract terms to keep quarterback Aaron Rodgers happy for another season in which the team will become the last of the NFL's 32 to make the trip to London.

The Packers, who are 14/1 to next year's Super Bowl, were announced as one of five teams to be designated the home dressing rooms for international series games in 2022 with UK-based Cheeseheads to get an opportunity to see Rodgers play live at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Rodgers stay is key

That will only be the case if Green Bay can convince Rodgers to stay in Wisconsin for another year amid more rumours that he is unsure if he wants to continue at Lambeau Field. 

The NFL's reigning two-time MVP, who is still under contract, has not yet made a decision on what he will do next season.

But the two sides are currently working on a short-term deal that would make the 38-year-old the league's highest-paid player, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

A deal to match Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' current annual $45m salary won't exactly be easy to put in place for Green Bay, who are currently more than $40 million over the salary cap.

But the Packers showed intent by clearing $10.8 million in cap space last week by restructuring defensive lineman Kenny Clark's contract.

Excitig prospect

The only remaining franchise not to have played a regular-season game in London since the international series started in 2007, Green Bay will forfeit a home game to do so in 2022.

"With the league move to the 17-game season, we knew this was a possibility, and we're really excited about it," Packers president Mark Murphy said.

"We have so many great fans all over Europe and all over the world, that I think it's really exciting for them to be able to see the Packers play in London."
