  Green bay quarterback and MVP Aaron Rodgers is entering the final two years of his current contract. A contract set to expire after the 2014 NFL season concludes. Widely recognized as one of the best quarterbacks playing, Rodgers will be looking to cash in on his MVP and Super Bowl championship soon. With Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco set to sign a new mega-deal soon, it appears Rodgers has a close eye on what numbers Joe Flacco will be able to secure. According to ESPN Wisconsin. Per 540 ESPN and ESPNWisconsin.com: ”I think everybody is going to see what Joe (Flacco) ends up signing for,” Rodgers said. “I’m sure they want to lock him up. He’s a great player – had an incredible run in the playoffs – and I’m sure they want to keep him around. A guy like that, with the post-season success he’s had, you want to keep a guy like that around for a while.” We reported earlier on the comments made by Joe Flacco’s agent Joe Linta, in which he stated that Flacco should be the highest paid quarterback in the league. If he does end up the highest paid, don’t be surprised if Aaron Rodgers ends up topping that number when it is time for him to receive a new deal.
