Appearing on PFT Live, Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he would like to get Aaron Rodgers' contract extension done "sooner rather than later."
The quarterback market could change dramatically with Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees scheduled to be free agents and Matt Ryan likely to land an extension, so it makes sense for the Packers to sign Rodgers before the asking price gets any higher. Rodgers' side knows the lay of the land as well, however, making it likely they wait to see how the market shakes out before agreeing to anything. No matter when it happens, Rodgers' next deal will make him the highest paid player in the league.

Packers president Mark Murphy said the team is working on an extension for Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers became the league's highest-paid player when he signed a five-year, $110 million extension in 2013. He has since outplayed that deal and is now the sixth-highest-paid quarterback. The expectation is Rodgers' new deal will surpass the $27.5 million per year that Jimmy Garoppolo got from the 49ers earlier this year. Rodgers is still technically in his prime at 34 years old.
