Other QB’s around the league are watching with a keen eye as to the deal that Ravens QB Joe Flacco is going to get from the Ravens once Super Bowl XLVII wraps up.
One player that should get an offseason extension is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is coming off another strong year that ended with a divisional playoff loss to the Niners.
Rodgers’ current deal does not run out until after the 2014 season, but he’s horribly underpaid at an average of $9.3 million a year, so the Packers appear more likely to address his contract this year, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
With a deal for Flacco possibly coming up, that could be incentive for the Packers to do a new contract with Rodgers first, because if Flacco gets anything like Brees money, Rodgers’ price only skyrockets.
He’s worth it, and expect the Pack to ante up with a huge deal for their MVP.
