When you’re talking about a salary in the $20-million-per-year range, a difference of $2 million doesn’t seem overly significant.

According to a report on NFL.com -- http://on.nfl.com/14zOlf2 -- that figure currently separates the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who are in negotiations on a blockbuster contract extension. So says Ian Rapoport, a reporter for the league’s official website and the league-owned NFL Network.

According to the report, the Packers “current contract offer is believed to average slightly more than $21 million per season.”

So Rodgers must be asking for an average of $23 million per season. Earlier reports suggested Rodgers’ new deal would pay him an average of $25 million per year.

Rodgers still has two years left on the contract extension he signed in 2008. That contract calls for him to be paid $9.25 million this season and $10.5 million next season.
