Rodgers wants $2 million more per season from Packers

According to NFL.com, Packers star QB Aaron Rodgers wants $2 million more per season than what the team is currently offering. The Pack's current offer is for just over $21 million, which apparently isn't enough to put food on the table. It's a shame to watch Rodgers become so selfish when it comes to money, but that's expected when he's one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco, who just won the Super Bowl, is due to make $19.6 million a year. That, while still being a ton of money, is a couple million less than what Rodgers'll probably make. So Rodgers better sign this deal, especially since all he's done the past two seasons is choke in the playoffs.

Rodgers selfish? Your kidding right? The man has been GROSSLY underpaid for the past 2 or 3 years and hasn't said a thing about his contract. He deserves every penny he can get and if that means 23M so be it. All this crap about taking a discount is a bunch of garbage! Rodgers been a godsend for the organization and he deserves to be paid quite a bit more than Flacco, Brees and anyone else. It the nature of NFL contracts and theres nothing greedy or selfish about it. Soon as Brees signed for 20M I knew Rodgers would be getting about 22M if he wasn't signed to the same amt at that time. It was only a matter of time.

In that paragraph, I was speaking from an ordinary person's point of view, not an NFL player's. if somebody was to offer me a deal worth $8 million a year like Rodgers has now, I'd gladly except it. Basically what I'm saying is, $21 million a year is more that enough to put food on the table. He doesn't NEED 10 mansions.
