Rodgers Expected To Get Deal Extended This Offseason

Don’t think it went unnoticed among the Packers’ hierarchy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers that Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is looking for a Drew Brees-type contract.

It’s yet another reminder that the Packers probably are better off moving sooner rather than later on renegotiating Rodgers’ contract.

Rodgers’ contract doesn’t run out until after the 2014 season, but he’s horribly underpaid at an average of $9.3 million a year, so the Packers appear more likely to address his contract this year, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

With a deal for Flacco possibly coming up, that could be incentive for the Packers to do a new contract with Rodgers first, because if Flacco gets anything like Brees money, Rodgers’ price only skyrockets.
