Rodgers signs record-setting contract extension

Aaron Rodgers is getting another big deal.
   The two-time NFL MVP and Green Bay Packers agreed to terms Wednesday on a four-year extension that would keep Rodgers under contract through the 2023 season.
   The four-year deal is worth $134 million, with more than $100 million in guaranteed money. Rodgers’ former teammate, NFL Network analyst James Jones, first reported the agreement.
   Rodgers’ new annual average salary of $33.5 million per year would eclipse Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan’s five-year extension worth $30 million a year.
   Rodgers turns 35 in December. He signed his previous extension, a five-year deal worth $110 million, before the 2013 season.
   Neither Rodgers nor the Packers expressed concern through this preseason that they couldn’t get a new deal done.
   "I talk with my agent daily, so I’m aware of conversations," Rodgers said when training camp opened last month. "But I’m really not too worried about it … like I said, there’s more than mutual interest on both sides."
   Rodgers is healthy again after being limited to seven games last year because of a right collarbone injury. Green Bay flopped without him.
