It’s widely believed that the next wave of quarterbacks to get new deals in the wake of the Joe Flacco contract will include Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
But the most glaring contract presently belongs to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who’ll earn less than half the average of the $20 million mark that more and more quarterbacks are approaching or exceeding.
Rodgers hasn’t asked for a new deal, and he hasn’t complained about his current contract. A league source with knowledge of the situation believes, however, that the Packers soon will take care of Rodgers.
“It is his time,” the source said.
The source also believes that, once Rodgers has a new deal, it will set a new benchmark that will stand for several years.
