Joe Flacco did not have the spotlight very long when it came to being the highest paid player in NFL History. In the same offseason that Flacco got his new deal, so will Aaron Rodgers. Sources close to the situation are saying that the Packers and Rodgers are closing in on a deal that will make the Green Bay quarterback the highest paid player in NFL History.
Team president Mark Murphy said that making Rodgers the highest paid player was a “priority.” With Flacco set to make $20.1 million a year, Rodgers could be making up to $23 million. Rodgers has had a passer rating higher than a 101 for the past four seasons, and has only thrown 14 interceptions in the past two. That interception total is less than Josh Freeman (17), Tony Romo (19), Brandon Weeden (17), Matthew Stafford (17), Andrew Luck (18), and Ryan Fitzpatrick (16) just this past season.
Rodgers’ 141 career touchdown passes against his 41 interceptions, along with his Super Bowl MVP award back in 2010 has led him to become the future NFL’s highest paid player. We will break it to you when the two sides have reached an agreement.
