"I think everybody is going to see what Joe (Flacco) ends up signing for," Rodgers said on his weekly radio show on 540 ESPN and ESPNWisconsin.com on Tuesday. "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."
Partly because of his recent success, Flacco's agent believes that his client should be the NFL's highest paid quarterback, which means he believes Flacco should earn more than Tom Brady, Peyton Manning or Drew Brees.
If Flacco does receive the NFL's richest contract, then Rodgers will almost certainly look to better that mark in the next two years. Rodgers, like Flacco, has a Super Bowl title, but also has an MVP award -- something Flacco doesn't have. By all accounts, Rodgers is the better quarterback, and will likely want his contract to reflect that.
