COPY-Packers sign Rodgers to contract extension

Aaron Rodgers has signed a contract extension with the Green Bay Packers, general manager Ted Thompson announced Friday.

"Aaron is a true professional and a special player," Thompson said. "We are happy to reach an agreement to extend his career with the Packers."

Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in the first round in 2005. In his career, the quarterback has completed 1,752 of 2,665 passes for 21,661 yards and 171 TDs with 46 INTs.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. But it's likely that the 2011 NFL MVP will be among the highest-paid players in the league.

Rodgers is scheduled to talk to the media at the Packers locker room at 4:30 p.m. Friday.
