While the rest of the league is concentrating on the 2013 NFL Draft, the Packers announced a contract extension with quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Friday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Rodgers shattered Joe Flacco's six-year, $120.6 million contract as the highest-paid player in football. The deal is for $110 million over five years, with $62 million in the first three years and a whopping $40 million this season. Rodgers' $22 million average beats Flacco's annual salary of $20.1 million.

The most valuable player in the NFL since taking the baton from Brett Favre, Rodgers boasts a gaudy 46-16 record over the past four seasons while tossing 142 touchdowns against 32 interceptions. No other quarterback matches his combination of arm strength, accuracy, mobility and football acumen.
