There has been a ton of talk about Aaron Rodgers and his contract extension. With Rodgers having two years remaining on his current deal, the Packers and Rodgers have been talking this offseason to get a deal done in the near future. However, with the report of Rodgers being frustrated about the Packers not communicating with him when it comes to the offseason moves, some think Rodgers would stall contract talks. The Packers began their offseason workouts on Tuesday and Rodgers got the chance to speak about his future with the Packers. The two-time MVP said despite everything that has happened this offseason, he is confident he will have a new contract very soon which will lead to ending his career with the Packers. "I'm under contract for the next two years," Rodgers told reporters via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "Obviously, we'd like to lock something in, I think, at some point. The team has made that public knowledge that they'd love to do that. As I said many times I'd love to finish my career here. So there's more than mutual interest on both sides." Last month, Packers president Mark Murphy talked to reporters about Rodgers' contract and he said he hopes to have a new deal done before the start of the season. “Yes, I think so, yes," Murphy said. "Obviously, there's a lot going on with free agency, and now the league meetings; so I don't think there have been a lot of discussions recently. But I'm confident we'll work something out. I think you’ve seen in recent years and increase in the amount of guaranteed money in contracts. I think this is the first probably that I’m aware of that is guaranteed to that percentage."
