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.”
