Somewhere, privately, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is chuckling about this.
We told you about the record-setting deal the Baltimore Ravens gave Joe Flacco earlier today. While Flacco and his frat brothers are surely high-fiving and doing keg stands in a dank basement, the rest of us are sitting around wondering how a mediocre player got a deal worth $20 million a year.
Among those is Rodgers’ brother Luke, who compared Flacco to another perfectly average quarterback — Buffalo’s Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Joe Flacco is getting 20 million a season. Wow. Can't wait to see Ryan Fitzpatrick's new deal….

We’re all patiently awaiting Rodgers’ new contract extension, which will probably be larger than Flacco’s deal. However, there’s no real hurry for the Packers to extend Rodgers. He still has two years left on the last extension he signed.
Rodgers will make around $10 million in both of those seasons.
dude, i wish i was aaron rodgers’ brother…that would be so coo’
Who the F is Rodgers brother and who cares what he thinks. Ruding his brothers coat tails.
actually FYI he is a pretty decent quarterback from a SEC school.
Sorry, made it wrong, he is the OTHER Rodgers brother, so yeah, fuck him, even though I still think he had a point, Flacco is totally average.
pretty funny, but knowing how Aaron is pretty calculated with his comments, I have a feeling that he didn’t appreciate the comments from his little bro.
Lauren, get back to your homework. You clearly need to brush up on your spelling. As for Luke Rodgers, fucking hilarious. Joe Flacco is the definition of an average QB playing for an excellent team.
Let me get this straight: Some bartender who has never played college must less pro ball, says that Joe Flacco is over-rated. I would love it if Flacco bought that bar’s building and shut the place down just because — over-rated or not — now he can.
To all older lame-ass brothers of the world — and we’re looking mainly at you right now, Luke — eat a cup of STFU, will ya?
