(CBS) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on the verge of becoming a wealthy man – perhaps the wealthiest man the NFL has ever seen.

According to a report, the Packers and Rodgers are nearing a deal that would make the 29-year-old quarterback the highest-paid player in NFL history.

The report indicates Rodgers could earn $25 million per season, exceeding the six-year, $120.6 million contract the Ravens and Joe Flacco agreed to earlier this month.

Rodgers is currently playing under a six-year, $65 million deal that runs through the 2014 season.

The quarterback is set to earn $9.25 million in 2013 and $10.5 million in 2014.
