Ted Thompson comments on Aaron Rodgers’ contract

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 26, 2013 – 9:50 pm

During his press conference ending the second day of the draft, Packers GM Ted Thompson was asked to comment on the contract extension signed by QB Aaron Rodgers on Friday. Here’s what he said:

“Really glad it worked out. I think Aaron has proven himself to be a very fine quarterback, a very fine leader. As an extension of that, the Green Bay Packers and Packer fans have been very lucky to have Aaron Rodgers come in here and do the job he has, following a legend in Brett Favre, in the time that he spent from 1992 forward. To have those two guys as your two quarterbacks for that long a time is a remarkable thing, and it’s the record I think is a reflection of that.”

    Glad the Pack got a deal done with A-Rod. He’s a great QB, and I hope he plays well in GB for a long time.

    great QB but 110 mil for 5 years, one man doesnt make a team, for 110 mil you could get a lot of great players

    You are crazy to think we can win without Rodgers.

    I am a TRUE flatulence scientist. It is humble and refreshing to study such an amazing topic. I love when they taste like metal from the dead blood cells, delicious.

    For TT to mention Favre along with Rogers in the same breath was interesting. Just maybe Favre and TT may make-up!!!!!! Time to retire number 4 Jersey!
