Hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe discuss the fallout from the big deals handed out to Chargers’ Justin Herbert and Jets’ Aaron Rodgers

With NFL training camps opening up this week, plenty of NFL teams are looking toward the future.

He wasn’t the only one to get a new deal done, though.

Aaron Rodgers finally restructured his enormous contract by taking a $35 million pay cut over the next two years.

On Thursday’s GM Shuffle show, hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe break down the implication of those two deals, along with Saquon Barkley’s one-year pact with the New York Giants.
