06:52 PM ET 02.06 | Joe Flacco is currently the highest profile free agent on the market right now, but you're crazy to think that the Ravens will be letting him walk. Owner Steve Bisciotti has already said he's willing to go over the $20 million threshold to keep Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP, in Baltimore for the forseeable future. But while it's Flacco who's about to get paid in Baltimore, another quarterback is paying very close attention to the outcome of the negotiations. Aaron Rodgers isn't thinking about when he's going to be getting a new contract from the Packers, but whatever happens with Flacco will no doubt impact his next deal. While Flacco is currently the darling of the NFL, he's not the best quarterback in the league. Aaron Rodgers is largely regarded at the No. 1 signal caller in the pros, which means whatever Flacco gets paid, Rodgers will likely seek a similar deal in a few years.

If Flacco gets $25 mil a year will Rodgers get $30 in a few years when his contract is up?

Flacco might do a long term less money deal like 18 and 8 with 60 Guarenteed, he's only 28, in any event he holds all the cards, Rodgers is only 29 he might also do Long Term if Green Bay is looking to keep him!
