Packers, Rodgers $2 million a year apart as contract talks continue

Aaron Rodgers AP

The Packers and Aaron Rodgers are a couple million dollars a year apart as they continue discussing a new contract that would keep him in Green Bay into his mid-30s.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the two sides are roughly $2 million a year apart. That might sound like a lot, but when we’re talking about adding another four years and somewhere around $100 million in new money to Rodgers’ deal, a $2 million a year difference is something that the sides can work through.

The Packers would need to go a little beyond $100 million in new money over four additional years if they’re going to pay Rodgers more over the next six seasons than the $120 million deal Joe Flacco signed. Rapoport reports that the Packers are currently offering more than $21 million a year, and that Rodgers will end up with a better deal than Flacco got. The Packers would need to pay Rodgers an additional $106 million over four more years to get to an average of $21 million over the next six years. If they’re $2 million apart and Rodgers wants to average $23 million a year for the next six years, the Packers would need to pay him an additional $118 million on a four-year extension.

Flacco, of course, got his great deal in large part because he bet on himself, turned the Ravens down last year and proved himself worthy of more money by winning the Super Bowl MVP award. If the Packers don’t add another $2 million a year to their offer, Rodgers may try to do the same.

    Here we go- now we have another qb that wants flacco money without earning it.

  2. dcapettini says: Apr 1, 2013 10:00 AM

    Can we just have one article without “Benroethalsberger7″ high jacking the thread? I think that Florio lets him go on just to tick us off.

  3. leggett17 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:00 AM

    If only he was smart enough to run the Read Option. THey should cut him.

  4. polarbear71 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:01 AM

    As a Bears fan I have to say, Rodgers is worth twice as much as Romo And Flacco.

  5. 2difshoe says: Apr 1, 2013 10:01 AM

    Heck, you need something to wipe your arse with.

  6. packerswin96 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:01 AM

    Was sure hoping that Rodgers would take less $ so that the team could stay competitive.

  7. qbofthenever says: Apr 1, 2013 10:08 AM

    If this guy doesn’t become the highest paid player in the history of the league then the Packers are idiots…

  8. wludford says: Apr 1, 2013 10:08 AM

    Rodgers doesn’t need to bargain with the Packers. Take it or leave it. Packers will have to cough it up- #12 is their team and he’s got all the numbers on his side.

  9. baltimoresnativeson says: Apr 1, 2013 10:09 AM

    I don’t think rogers has the balls that flacco has. Turn down more money, gamble on yourself, go win the superbowl and get even more money. I don’t think many qbs in the league have the stones for that.

  10. mrtrappedinmymindsr says: Apr 1, 2013 10:10 AM

    Meanwhile, I need 20 bucks for gas to get to work and school this week. fml

  11. tmhofficial says: Apr 1, 2013 10:11 AM

    Rodgers isn’t like Flacco though. He’s not going to have the same me first attitude, as nothing during his time in the NFL has even hinted that he’s like that. He’s competitive, and wants to win. He also likes security (as shown by him signing that extension in 2008, taking security over betting on himself, so to speak)

    The deal gets done within a week or two, and both sides will be happy. Unlike Flacco’s deal, overpaying for a barely top 10 QB, Rodgers and the Pack will have one of the rare mutually beneficial deals.

  12. seals1 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:12 AM

    Rogers is washed up and already on the decline. Ted, Don’t overpay this washed up clown.

  13. tungo0516 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:15 AM

    This will never happen, but I can speak for Chiefs nation when I say that we will offer the Packers our entire draft this year and some more for a shot at Rodgers and gladly pay you what you’re looking to get.

  14. kotcha23 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:18 AM

    There’s no way he follows in Flacco’s footsteps and waits another year to get this done. This will be done this year for sure.

  15. packfaninchitown says: Apr 1, 2013 10:20 AM

    Glad to see this getting done early. The Ravens & Cowboys were idiots to pay Flacco & Romo such high contracts, it will increase the contract price for the top five QBs significantly.

    The good news about that, however, is the Bears can still re-sign Cutler at a bargain price.

  16. sitbackandwatch says: Apr 1, 2013 10:26 AM

    Looks like the deal the Saints and Brees cut was a bargain.

  17. overratedsteelerhater says: Apr 1, 2013 10:28 AM

    take a chance,turn it down and fire everyone
    up to win it all.. whats a couple million when
    your talking those numbers…..

  18. lovefootball4life says: Apr 1, 2013 10:28 AM

    tmhofficial, why do you say Flacco had a me first attitude? Were you a part of the negotiations? You got your information from here, like the rest of us. Don’t talk about what you don’t know about. Mr. Discount Doublecheck will get paid and his agent will be the one playing hard ball. Most likely (not I don’t know for sure) he’s not telling his agent to back off or we’d see that happen.

  19. daknight93 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:28 AM

    Football is a team game…no player is worth 20+ million dollars to play a kids game, this is ridiculous and needs to stop…I’m hearing reports Rodgers will get 25M per year..not worth it, a QB can’t win games by himself..Good Grief!

  20. crownofthehelmet says: Apr 1, 2013 10:30 AM

    Greedy bastage.

  21. jbaxt says: Apr 1, 2013 10:36 AM

    If I could have any QB in the league, right now, it would be Aaron Rodgers. I don’t think anyone is near as good as him. My 2nd choice would be Luck, but he could surpass Rodgers this year.

  22. shiftyshellshocked says: Apr 1, 2013 10:45 AM

    Yup… Aaron’s all about the team. I new you packers fans were very smart. It’s all about the green backs. Not Green Bay! SKOL!!!!

  23. immafubared says: Apr 1, 2013 10:47 AM

    If I were Rogers I would just play out my contract. Why? Yes right now you get the big payoff you’ve deserve and wanted. In the next two years your fortunes could turn to crap as well.
    On the flip side, the team pays you da mooney and oopps; ‘ Sorry Aaron, those top O linemen who are supposed to protect your back, well you see we can’t afford them now’. ‘Ditto a real running back, defensive end, defensive backs and interior DT’. Nope, your money kind of sucked the air out of the team, but hey, have a nice career.
    Two years he can go to a contender who is one quality QB from a coupple of super bowls, get the huge payday and have it all versus six years of getting your ass kicked but pockets full of money.

  24. footballchic777 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:49 AM

    So when does football stop being about beating the last contract? Romo and Flacco are not in the same league with Rodgers……or Manning, Brees, and Brady. These contracts are going to price football out of sight.

  25. immafubared says: Apr 1, 2013 10:51 AM

    I heard today, maybe April fools joke too, that the Pack traded away there two top O linemen to come up with the money for Rogers. Ouch.
    If so your going to have the top QB on his ass all game long or in the hospital by week two. Either way, the Pack fans lose.

  26. sbaltimore says: Apr 1, 2013 10:54 AM

    Rodgers is good. Flacco is good. Romo…not so good.

  27. len462 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:58 AM

    I just hope the Packers don’t hurt Rodgers feelings. He’s very sensitive.

  28. scoops1 says: Apr 1, 2013 10:58 AM

    Finely needs to man up and take a pay cut now

  29. ravenmuscle says: Apr 1, 2013 10:59 AM

    Funny how the Raven haters keep bringing up Flacco as not even a top ten quarterback but all he does is beat Brady TWICE this year…beat both Manning brothers this year…beat Andrew Luck this year…was one dropped pass by Lee Evans from taking the Ravens to the Superbowl LAST year….has started EVERY game since he came into the league as a rookie 5 years ago….has NEVER missed a game due to injury…and has taken the Ravens to the playoffs every one of the past five years.

    And he has done this with a mediocre offensive line…many dropped balls in games we should have won easily AND that famous AGING defense that was ranked 20th last year.

    What he HAS done is get red hot in the playoffs this year….win the Superbowl…and receive the Superbowl MVP award in a game the Ravens should have won by 45 to 13 if the stupid lights hadn’t gone out in New Orleans and given the 49ers a momentum boost.

    And if anybody thinks Colin Kaepernick…Russell Wilson and RGIII should be ranked way ahead of Flacco..think again…defenses will figure out how to stop the “read option” just like they figured out the wildcat and these running dudes will all end up with busted ACLs just like RGIII already has.

  30. phreakin says: Apr 1, 2013 11:00 AM

    TO the guy needing $20 for gas, get your priorities right. Turn off your internet if you’re struggling for gas money. I would think work/school comes first.

  31. 2difshoe says: Apr 1, 2013 11:04 AM

    His contract is up next year.

    Newflash there Ace…Rodgers has already won a Superbowl. I think he has all the leverage he needs

  33. The Prophet says: Apr 1, 2013 11:15 AM

    I like how Packer fans attack players that leave as greedy and putting money before winning, yet when Rodgers demands to be the highest paid player in NFL history its perfectly fine. Packer fans=hypocrits!

  34. inallsincerity says: Apr 1, 2013 11:18 AM

    I don’t know why the Packers are dragging their feet on this, Rodgers is WAY better than Low Joe Flacco whom I think frankly, is stealing with the contract he just signed.

  35. thebrownswillalwaysloose says: Apr 1, 2013 11:31 AM

    Being the best QB in the league Rodgers definitely deserves to be the highest paid! That being said, if you’re not a Packers Or Ravens fan, you probably shouldn’t be commenting on this topic as you’re an obvious hater or straight jealous.

  36. scoobies05 says: Apr 1, 2013 11:36 AM

    since winning is what sports are all about flacco is in the same category as manning manning brees brady ben and rodgers. and if anyone thinks rodgers gives a discount you are crazy. he will be the highest paid when he signs

  37. trollaikman8 says: Apr 1, 2013 11:38 AM

    They’re only $24M under the cap. They may have to raise the price of bratwurst at Lambeau.

  38. ccjcsr says: Apr 1, 2013 11:40 AM

    Your only as good as what sombody is willing to pay you! Obviously the going rate for Super Bowl Qb’s is 20 mill, Romo’s deal averages around 17 after the extension.

  39. riverace19 says: Apr 1, 2013 11:41 AM

    His contract will cripple the Packers ability to compete in the NFC. Selfish and dumb but he’s not married to Gisele who makes $50 million and he doesn’t live in a house with a moat around it.

  40. filthymcnasty1 says: Apr 1, 2013 11:46 AM

    I think they should provide him a really easy to reach incentive for the extra $2M/year, like beating the Vikings and Bears twice per season.

  41. golforepar says: Apr 1, 2013 11:50 AM

    Pay Rodgers now, rip up the contract in 2 years to clear some cap space. Anti Packers fans can read this when they go for recess!

  42. Andrew Bailey says: Apr 1, 2013 11:51 AM

    I always like when stories like this come out and fans pull the “it’s only $2 million! Sign the deal, you arrogant crybaby!” shtick.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but $2 million is something I’d argue over.

  43. onlyopinionthatmatters says: Apr 1, 2013 11:53 AM

    another whiney diva qb..i dont understand it, qb’s stomp their feet and cross their arms and pout because little johnny got paid more. get over it rodgers, take the deal and lead your team to victory. let your play and team first attitude be your legacy, not the fact that you were the highest paid. I cant stand Brady and the pats, but hes the only one that has my respect with these contracts..he deserves the most and is taking the least. hes getting paid less then luck and rgdouche, yet is worth well more then that.

  44. GenXJay says: Apr 1, 2013 11:56 AM

    Let me guess Packer fans; The fight is over kindness.
    Aaron is such “the humble” locker room player that he’s the one in disagreement over NOT taking the 2 million extra that the Teddy T is offering.
    Such a noble Qb & above the selfish NFL business environment.

  45. jprcox says: Apr 1, 2013 11:58 AM

    Odd this year I think people saw contracts moving the other way for once, and yet we say $23m like it was nothing.

    If Flacco got $21m the scale is WAY off. Paying 20-25% of the entire CAP on a single player is not wise. The amount of money paid to Flacco was nearly equal to the amount of high quality players they lost. That will be repeated over and over for teams who pay their QB 20m+.

  46. majormeatcurtains says: Apr 1, 2013 12:02 PM

    Manning needs a better deal than Brees. Flacco has to have a bigger deal than Manning. Rodgers has to receive more than Flacco. Next up has to do better than Rodgers. And on. And on. How about just paying the QB what is fair for him and the team? Those RBs, linemen, receivers, DBs and the rest go out and sweat and bang and work as hard if not harder than golden boy under center but every time a QB contract comes up it HAS to be bigger than the last to satisfy these huge egos. I say build a team with nothing but huge linemen and a bunch of Dwayne Carswell types playing TE. Hand it off or pitch it to the huge TE everytime and just bulldoze it for six yards per play while golden boys look on from the sideline. Knock the little Nancys and their huge egos down a notch. How long since you been in the SB Rodgers? Or Manning, or Brees, or soon to be Flacco. OK, go ahead and delete now NBC.

  47. baltimoresnativeson says: Apr 1, 2013 12:03 PM

    Rogers has a ring and great regular season stats. But you guys do realize he can’t hold Flaccos Jock strap when it comes to playoff statistics (what really matters) right? Nobody currently playing can, except Brady.

  48. twonis says: Apr 1, 2013 12:03 PM

    I love seeing all the comments about “Why doesn’t he play out his contract and go earn it like Flacco?”

    Superbowl Ring
    Superbowl MVP
    Regular Season MVP
    Historic Passer Rating Stats
    Unreal TD/INT stats

    He has absolutely earned his payday.

    Any right thinking individual would recognize that a player only gets this chance once or twice a career, in most cases. He is not asking for anything that he isn’t worth, in the sense that many other teams would gladly pay it. He would be a fool not to take it if that’s what he wants.

    Would I have been happier if he would have taken shorter money in order to keep the rest of the team stacked? Yes.
    Do I believe for one second that this signals the inevitable decline of the GB Packers? No.

    Believe in Ted Thompson and believe in #12.

  49. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Apr 1, 2013 12:10 PM

    In my opinion, Rodgers should get $50 million a year. The more they pay him, the better.

  56. purplepunisher says: Apr 1, 2013 12:39 PM

    packers should pay Rodgers 120 million per season, since he is the only legitimate NFL player on their roster.

  57. sportsindcfan says: Apr 1, 2013 12:43 PM

    Obviously Rodgers deserves a big contact but his playoff record is 4 -3. It’s another reason why he needs a strong team around him. Flacco’s record in the postseason is way better than Rodgers.

    This whole im better then he is I should get more money then him is so ridiculously childish. This QB show me the money scale has to stop! You cant throw all the cap money at just the QB. There will be no cap space for descent players for the rest of the team. Flacco says ” I deserve what im worth” 120 mil,??? Really? Who cares that the rest of your superbowl team was dismantled because of it! Stupid!

    “Stupid is as stupid does”. Flacco’s contract didn’t dismantle the team. That’s just simply not accurate. Read around a little, just on this site alone, and you’ll get it.

    Flacco’s first 3 playoff wins, total stats:

    Reason for Rodgers’ playoff exit:
    2009: Defense couldn’t stop Warner at all.

    2011: Offense couldn’t stop coughing up the ball + bonehead defense at end of first half giving up a hail mary

    2012: Abysmal defensive effort. Ill timed turnover early on. Mcarthy not realizing that they were getting boat raced in the 4th quarter, punting on a manageable 4th down.

    Ravens would have won 5 superbowls in a row if they Had Rodgers as QB since 08.

    Rodgers is GREAT. The best QB in the league by a country mile. Flacco is good, and hasn’t even hit his prime yet. Romo is “meh” and on the decline. The Cowboys look like fools, because while Ozzie and Ted Thompson are competing year in and year out, Jerry Jones will be rebuilding in 2-3 years.

    The Ravens defenses carried every team that Flacco has been on so far. Rodgers carries the Packers. Do me a favor now that you won the Super Bowl, come talk to me when Flacco follows up his SB MVP with a 15-1 regular season, throws 45 TDs to only 6 picks, all while having the WORST DEFENSE in NFL history. Playoff record this playoff record that, hey wait doesn’t Mark Sanchez have a pretty good playoff record? If his record is better than Rodgers that means he’s better? Like I said the first time, its not even close. Ill say it a third time. Its. not. even. close.

  73. jwcarlson says: Apr 1, 2013 2:19 PM

  78. sixdollarwater says: Apr 1, 2013 3:44 PM

    Umm $40 to park and $7 for a sausage has kinda priced football out of sight.

    I am in the Brown County tax lotto for tickets. I got picked. $300 for 4 seats to a game I can’t pick ( one year I purchased and got the pre season game).

    Or for $300 I can buy 3 tickets to a Brewer game,gas,parking and stay a night in a hotel. And I can pick the game. The Brewers charge my kid $0 to get in and they give her a Bobblehead. The Packers charge $79 for 4 inches of cold bench.

    I’m spending $7 a month on NFLN/Redzone from ATT. END OF LIST. No tickets,jerseys..nothing. Not one dime more. It’s not about what I can afford its about cost vs value. It’s that I’d rather buy my kid some nice stuff vs buying some fat dlineman who doesn’t sign autographs another car or house.

    Im also sick of giving Ted Thompson money he doesn’t spend. All I asked for was Steven Jackson. Instead we get DuJuan Harris and his 600 yards and 4 Tds.

    Phuck the National Greedy League.

    I still love THE GAME but Rodger Goodell and Mark Murphy need to give me a better return on my investment.

    Til then Ill give them 3 hours in front of my tv and spend my food money on takeout from a local business.

    So when does football stop being about beating the last contract? Romo and Flacco are not in the same league with Rodgers……or Manning, Brees, and Brady. These contracts are going to price football out of sight.

    Maybe Rodgers just remembers how the “owners” treated him early in his career when Da Favra was still a presence hovering above Wisconsin.

    As a Vikings fan, I say pay the guy. He is the best QB in the game today and deserves to be paid accordingly. If teams would have known how good this guy would turn out to be, he would have been the #1 overall pick to San Fran that year, and would be winning SB’s in San Fran with how much more talented that roster is compared to Green Bay’s. I just wish Rodgers wasn’t in the same division as my Vikes.

    2 million bucks to slide? thats a lot

    This just in: you have no o-line, no run game, no defense. Rodgers is your whole team, and you’re nothing without him. That’s an OBJECTIVE observation. Pay the man whatever he wants.

    Packers fans are classic.

    Did you guys know Flacco and Montana are the only QB’s in the history of the NFL to throw 11 td’s and 0 picks in the playoffs on the way to the superbowl? Not your pretty boy Rogers.

    “Your right, Flacco plays way better in the playoffs than Rogers.”

    ———————————————————-

    The Ravens defenses carried every team that Flacco has been on so far. Rodgers carries the Packers. Do me a favor now that you won the Super Bowl, come talk to me when Flacco follows up his SB MVP with a 15-1 regular season, throws 45 TDs to only 6 picks, all while having the WORST DEFENSE in NFL history. Playoff record this playoff record that, hey wait doesn’t Mark Sanchez have a pretty good playoff record? If his record is better than Rodgers that means he’s better? Like I said the first time, its not even close. Ill say it a third time. Its. not. even. close.

    _________________________________

    The Ravens 17th ranked 2012 defense who gave up the yards in a SB by the winning team in history carried Flacco? If you watched our defense in 2012, you’d know they couldn’t stop anyone. Ironically, the worst defense Flacco has ever had “carrying” him, he finally won a SB.

    You want to bring up Flaccos horrible stats in the playoffs his 1st few years? What was Rogers doing his 1st 3 years in the league? Nothing cause he was on the bench. What happened when he got seasoned and experienced? Superbowl MVP.

  87. baltimoresnativeson says: Apr 1, 2013 4:20 PM

    Defense carrying Flacco? thats laughable, if you watched at least half the Ravens games this year you would realize that 17TH RANKED DEFENSE was getting carried.

  88. baltimoresnativeson says: Apr 1, 2013 4:28 PM

    That 15-1 season means about as much as I left in the toilet this afternoon.

    By the way I’m a Rogers fan. But Flacco is a beast.

  89. baltimoresnativeson says: Apr 1, 2013 4:30 PM

    After his second season Joe’s palyoff stats are 18 touchdowns 3 interceptions. That is utterly ridiculous. He is a monster.

    Hey seals1 you must have a loser of a QB for your team for you to be busting Rodgers. Maybe your a bears fan. You need to take a shower & wash that big L off your forehead

  91. filthymcnasty1 says: Apr 1, 2013 4:47 PM

    If Rodgers success were measured in Bear and Viking fan whining and crying, he’ll be a first ballot hall of famer.

  92. liddogg33 says: Apr 1, 2013 4:49 PM

    Ravens muscle you are a DILLUSIONAL MORON!! 1st Flacco couldn’t tie Rogers SHOESTRINGS!!! Rodgers is twice the quarterback he is!! 2nd Russell Wilson is no read option quarterback!!! Man watch football and its easy to see!!!!

    GO HAWKS!!!!

  93. scoobies05 says: Apr 1, 2013 5:26 PM

    rodgers is outstanding…anyone who watches football can understand that. but why make excuses when the pack loses. i mean the ravens were a dropped lee evans pass from super bowl 46. they could have two super bowls…but they dont. flacco and rodgers both have 1 ring. and they are both outstanding

    For a team that prides itself on building through the draft and not paying veterans much money, it’s interesting to see them have to pay 33% of their cap for 2 players. That works if you hit on the draft every year, but that hasn’t happened lately. Could be the start of the Packers finishing at the bottom of the division again, where they used to reside for decades.

  95. tokyosandblaster says: Apr 1, 2013 10:05 PM

    It’s so cute how fans of every other team think they have a player that is in the same stratosphere as Aaron Rodgers.

    When it’s all said and done, he will be considered the greatest QB of all time.

    And it won’t be close.

    The Wisconsin median family gross income for a family of 4 is $79,648. Since the majority live below median, its a major expenditure to attend a Packer game, or even to buy the swag. Somethings got to give.
