With the Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco agreeing to terms on a huge deal that makes him the highest paid player in the league, Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers is next in line for a new deal.
According to league sources with a strong pulse on Rodgers’ current contract situation, it is believed that the Packers and Rodgers will agree to a new deal “soon.”
The new deal that Rodgers is set to receive is expected to “blow away the $52 million guaranteed Flacco received” in his deal. It is also reported that the new Rodgers deal will ”set a new benchmark that will stand for several years.”
Rodgers has said that he is concerned about his current contract but he has no plans to hold out if he does not receive a new deal in the offseason. However, with all signs pointing to the Packers and Rodgers coming to an agreement in the near future, a holdout should never come in to play.
The former NFL and Super Bowl MVP is currently playing out his six-year, $65 million, which he has more than outplayed. If anyone in the league deserves a new deal, it is Rodgers.
