02:01 PM ET 02.06 | Green Bay Packers quarterback and former MVP Aaron Rodgers will be paying close attention to Joe Flacco's new contract. According to ESPN Wisconsin, Rodgers and his camp are particularly interested in what the Ravens give Flacco, as Rodgers enters the final two seasons of a six-year contract signed in 2008. 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.

Perhaps you should go to the playoffs before you get too crazy

So he's not thinking about giving the Packers a discount double check???

Same old money grubbing malcontents....

I would hope you would live up to the damn contract you ALREADY SIGNED......

I might have read it wrong, but I think the idea is to see what the contract should be when time comes to sign it, not to tear up the current one. "If Flacco does receive the NFL's richest contract, then Rodgers will almost certainly look to better that mark in the next two years."

At this rate we'll have our first Billion dollar athlete in no time.

Rodgers is better than him but they are all over paid..

Didn't make it past 3rd grade reading comprehension, I see.

The Pack will counter that they need money for the D and, thinking of Rodgers' health, the O-line. Dude starting to get sacked so much, even David Carr has sympathy for him.

I think he will. This is pure speculation/guessing on the part of ESPN, trying to pull a story out of their butts. They seem to be obsessed with Green Bay in Bristol.

Funny.... that's a good one..... if he doesn't try to renegotiate - fine.... but I'm sure he'll (just like a lot of THEM) will put a buzz in the money mans ear about some kind of extension - before the two years is up.....

By the way - at least the others were civil..... - you went right for the degradation..... it'll be alright...... seems my 3rd grade reading comprehension scares you....

Whatever it takes to keep Rodgers the Pack had better pony up. He's far better than Flacco and the only reason they make the playoffs every year. There is no other part of the Packers that scares any NFL team.

Agreed

Of course Aarogant Rodgers is looking at Flacco's deal. He's going to ask for double what Flacco makes, even though his playoff record sucks compared to Flacco's.

Rodgers has a League MVP Award and can match Flacco's SB MVP. What hardware does Flacco have for his regular season performances?????

I wish I could suck as bad as Rodgers.

I'm sure a lot of teams wish they had a QB that sucked as bad as Rodgers too!
