01:58 PM ET 03.05 | Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the best signal-callers in the NFL, but his contract pales in comparison to some of the game's other top QBs. However, Rodgers doesn't plan on holding out for better money. He's set to make $9.25 million in 2013 and $10.5 million in 2014, which isn't close to the roughly $20 million per year Joe Flacco and Drew Brees are making. Rodgers may look for a new deal, but a source close to him claims he isn't too upset, saying "He paid close attention to the money Joe Flacco received, but there's no anger. He's not planning to hold out."

Flacco makes twice as much as Rodgers, how could that upset Aaron?

Rodgers is twice as good as Flacco. However, he's also twice as smart and knows he'll be taken care of by the Packers. Smart organizations know how to compete year after year and they know Rodgers is, by far, the most important player on their team. Without him, they go nowhere.

That Flacco deal will upset the elite QB pay structure.

Really? The Ravens shouldve been in back to back SBs if the receiver didnt drop the ball in finals against New England. And the Pats ended up losing again against yours truly the GGGGGGGGGGGMen!!!

C'mon Creepy...if you're gonna go that way, then this year's Ravens had no business winning that game against Denver.

Awwwwwww ... a multi-millionaire is going to do us a favor and not hold out. Screw him.

Cant help if the dummy safety allowed the Ravens receiver to get ahead of him when their corner had the inside covered

If I were Rodgers I would hold out until they get a better offensive line than can stay on the field

Good thing you're not him.

And GB's offensive line isn't nearly as bad as people who just look at sack numbers would believe (although injuries and poor center play did plague them throughout the season). Rodgers takes a lot of coverage sacks according to Football Outsiders...or anyone who watches GB on a regular basis would tell you. It's the price you pay when you're a QB who can and will try to extend plays.
