By Grant Burkhardt

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have agreed on a contract extension.

The Packers announced the deal Friday, but didn't say how long it was for or how much he'll be paid. It's likely, however, that the 2011 NFL MVP will be among the highest-paid players in the league.

Locking up Rodgers was a priority for the Packers, who also reached a long-term extension with linebacker Clay Matthews this month. The Packers are 53-27 in Rodgers' five years as a starter, and he led them to the Super Bowl title following the 2010 season.

He has thrown for 21,661 yards and 171 touchdowns, and has had a quarterback rating of 101.2 or better in all but one season as a starter.

His quarterback rating of 122.5 in 2011 is an NFL record.
