Report: Packers GM Brian Gutekunst says Rodgers deal will come 'soon'

The general manager of the Green Bay Packers says that a long-term deal with quarterback Aaron Rodgers will happen "soon."

Brian Gutekunst tells NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk that both the Packers and Rodgers may be waiting on other quarterback contracts involving the Falcons and Matt Ryan - $150 million over five years, $100 million guaranteed according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen - and the Patriots and Tom Brady.

“We’re pretty confident that this is something that’s taking its normal course, its normal time,” Gutekunst told NBC Sports.

Currently, Rodgers has two years and $42 million left on his deal, but other contracts including the Vikings-Kirk Cousins deal include not only more money per year, but every dollar guaranteed.
