Green Bay Packers Should Give Aaron Rodgers $150 Million Contract
There have been a lot of quarterbacks around the NFL getting big contracts this offseason. The Green Bay Packers probably have the biggest quarterback that hasn’t gotten the big money in Aaron Rodgers, and I would think that Green Bay needs to pay him what he’s worth sooner than later.
Rodgers is 29-years-old and threw for 4,295 yards last season as the Packers got back to the divisional round. Green Bay needs to give the world to Rodgers and probably needs to give him $25 million a season at some point of the contract.
Joe Flacco got $120 million in the offseason. The contract for Rodgers should be an eight-year deal worth $150 million. That is a huge number, but Rodgers deserves every penny of that contract, and while I may not agree with it, that is the nature of the game these days.
Green Bay may need to sell more shares in the team to pay for Rodgers, but it is a necessary evil to keep the best quarterback in the NFL. The Packers probably need to make a move to get another wide receiver and running back in the draft to help Rodgers.
The job that he has done without a running game though has been unreal to me. I can only imagine what he could do with the right running back behind him. The time has come to get this done, and now we wait to see if it actually happens before the 2013 season begins.

The brief moment Pittsburgh Steelers fans preferred Duce Staley over “The Bus”
There's no question the relationship between Steelers fans and Jerome Bettis, the legendary running back who will be inducted into Pro Football's Hall of Fame next month, was one that was made in Heaven. But, for a brief moment in 2004, after signing former Eagle Duce Staley was the focal point. Long story short, Bettis would bully his way into the end zone after Staley would carry them down the field. Hard to imagine, but Bettis at one point was receiving boos in Pittsburgh. Read More
