    Rodgers signs extension

    Looks like he is getting 110 million over 5 years with 40 Million in the first year of the contract.

    Now, he is a great QB and all but this type of contract is what leads me to what I have been saying this off season in that I think there is going to be a trend away from these highly paid QB's that kill the salary cap and saddle the team with too much payroll going to one guy. Throw in the contract to Matthews and I see the Packers not having the balance that they had in the past and that is going to be their downfall.


    I see Spielman running the team like he is seeing things the same way I am. The QB is not going to be a top 5 guy but if he can just be average and if the rest of the team can improve we can do some damage.

    Kevoncox: We need to draft 2 WR's in the first round and we don't need a CB because it is a passing league.

    I hope the folks in GB like paying out 40 mill this year to a guy who may well be on IR for most of it.
    Not that I wish serious injury on anyone, of course. Just sayin'.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Um ... which RDE is he paying $18 million a year to? Not that difficult to look up contract numbers. Jared Allen ... if that is whom you are referring to ... got $12.21 million a year over six years, which ends this season ... and we could have gotten out at $31 million if we wanted to.

    Packers did a much better job with the Rodgers contract than the Ravens did with Flacco. Flacco's actually making more AAV, and well, he's not as good as Rodgers

    Cap is projected to increase by about $10 million in 2015, which will help. TT does a great job at handling the cap so I'm not worried about it. His track record speaks for itself

    Unless teams do not sign star players when their rookie contracts are up, the demand for big paydays will continue to go up.

    With the new rookie cap limits in place, those top players are no longer getting those big paydays prior to the start of their rookie season & will certainly be looking for them when their contracts are up to make up for what they feel they lost and/or deserve.
