Despite having two years remaining on his contract, the Green Bay Packers are looking to extend the current deal with QB Aaron Rodgers. It’s quite possible that the Packers are looking at the current situation regarding Joe Flacco in Baltimore and realize if Rodgers puts up another stellar season in 2013, his future contract could eclipse New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.
Rodgers, as is Flacco, is coming from a position of strength. The signal caller would be wise to hold off on renegotiating a new contract until he sees what happens with Flacco. Rodgers finished as the top rated passer for the second straight season and has thrown an astounding 84 touchdowns against just 14 interceptions in the last two seasons.Rodgers posted a 108.0 passer rating and Flacco recorded an 87.2 during the regular season despite turning it on in the post-season.
Rodgers was a bargain this season, playing for $9.3 million and will be paid slightly over $10 million next season under his current deal.
