Does Flacco Deserve More Money Than Rodgers

Dont think it went unnoticed among the Green Bay Packers hierarchy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is looking for a Drew Brees-type contract.

Its yet another reminder that the Packers probably are better off moving sooner rather than later on renegotiating Rodgers contract.

Flacco has plenty of leverage with the Ravens because the team didnt extend his contract last offseason and hell be an unrestricted free agent this March, though if it gets that far the Ravens presumably will designate him their franchise player. On Monday, ESPNs John Clayton reported Flacco will be looking for a deal similar to Brees five-year, $100 million contract that includes $40 million in guaranteed money signed last July.

But for all Flacco, 28, has done in helping the Ravens get to the Super Bowl, hes not among the premier quarterbacks in the league.
