The Facts: Rodgers, who turns 35 in December, says he wants to suit up till he’s 40, isn’t going to change how he plays because of the two clavicle injuries that cost him 16 games in five years, and would like to finish his career as a Packer. “I’d love to play to 40,” he said. “I just think that number means a lot. Obviously, Tom [Brady] is kind of rewriting the book. Brett [Favre] had a good season when he turned 40. My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40. ... Just because nobody’s been able to do that and still move around the same."
Diehards Line:Rodgers added: "Steve Young’s career was cut short in his late thirties. John [Elway], the same—he didn’t really move the same as when he was younger. So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That’s my aim.” Rodgers also said he’d “like to” play his career entirely for Green Bay. The QB currently has two years left on a five-year, $110-million deal. At 34, playing for $22 million annually on average, lesser quarterbacks have wizzed by Rodgers this off-season: Kirk Cousins at $28 million per, Matt Ryan at $30 million per. Many theories have been advanced as to what Rodgers should do, including tying his annual pay to the annual percentage increases of the salary cap. Rodgers wasn’t giving away much on this. But he sounds very much like a unique contract suits him more than a usual one, which could be obsolete 18 months after signing. For now, however, Rodgers is locked in at the top of this year's fantasy QB class.
