People are a bit salty about Joe Flacco being able to bet on himself and win.   Flacco became the highest paid player in NFL history this afternoon, and not everyone is pleased. Aaron Rodgers is due a contract extension at some point, and his brother Luke who like so many others, are wondering how someone with a Total Quarterback Rating as low as Flacco’s, can get such a huge deal. Joe Flacco is getting 20 million a season. Wow. Can’t wait to see Ryan Fitzpatrick’s new deal…. — Luke Rodgers (@thelukerodgers) March 2, 2013 The older of the Rodgers brothers basically trolled Flacco and the football world by insinuating that Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Bills should get a similar deal to Flacco, seeing as though they had similar quarterback ratings. Of course we all know that means nothing, because Flacco constantly keeps his team in the playoffs, has more playoff wins than Peyton Manning, and must I say, just won a Super Bowl. I don’t believe Luke Rodgers was hating on Joe Flacco, he was more or less, pointing out to the powers that be, that Aaron should be next.
