Video: If it's cash flow you're worried about, the Green Bay Packers won't have any problems writing quarterback Aaron Rodgers a big check whenever his contract extension is finished.

I don't think it's a matter of "Can". Nobody in the league would pay more for Rodgers than we would, and Rodgers isn't stupid enough to ask for a colossal dollar figure because it'll just make the rest of the team weaker. The big question is, how much personal wealth is he willing to put aside to get more talent around him?

I'm mad because I know there is a transcript of Rodgers on Wilde's Tuesday Show where Rodgers openly says that he'd be willing to take less pay so that the team can add more talent. Unfortunately, I don't know when it was said and don't have the time to dig for it (have tried looking before with no luck). Rodgers isn't going to go down the path that Drew Brees or Joe Flacco went. He doesn't want to mega millions, he just wants the bling bling. I don't think Rodgers is the kind of guy that enjoys being the highest paid quarterback, but enjoys being the best quarterback on the field (he has a brain).

Another thing to think about is how much money Rodgers makes on the side with his music label. Just a thought...

Does Rodgers deserve a Brees or Flacco-type contract? He most certainly does.

Packers team president Mark Murphy wants to do a pair of quarterback deals, and sounded optimistic about getting them done sooner rather than later. While addressing a group of Packers reporters at the league meetings, Murphy acknowledged that the Packers are working on a long-term deal for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which would likely be done

So, I am calling my own bluff. I asked Wilde via Twitter if Rodgers had ever said anything about taking less pay and I guess I was just hearing things. My fault for spreading false information.

My question:
Quote:
@jasonjwilde Please help me remember. On "Tuesdays with Aaron" was there a time where he discussed taking *less* $$ in a new contract to help the #Packers surround the team with more talent?


His response:
Quote:
@PackersMeatball No, I don't think he ever said that. Certainly not that matter-of-factly


Doesn't really matter I guess since the topic clarifies that Murphy said their wallet is fat enough to give Aaron what he deserves.

He wants to wipe Favre from the record books. Perhaps a little too badly.

This might help us when it comes to contract negotiation time, but it doesn't help us much when he's stat whoring on the field.
