People are a bit salty about Joe Flacco being able to bet on himself and win. Flacco became the highest paid player in NFL history this afternoon, and not everyone is pleased. Aaron Rodgers is due a contract extension at some point, and his brother Luke who like so many others, are wondering how someone with a Total Quarterback Rating as low as Flacco’s, can get such a huge deal. Joe Flacco is getting 20 million a season. Wow. Can’t wait to see Ryan Fitzpatrick’s new deal…. — Luke Rodgers (@thelukerodgers) March 2, 2013 The older of the Rodgers brothers basically trolled Flacco and the football world by insinuating that Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Bills should get a similar deal to Flacco, seeing as though they had similar quarterback ratings. Of course we all know that means nothing, because Flacco constantly keeps his team in the playoffs, has more playoff wins than Peyton Manning, and must I say, just won a Super Bowl. I don’t believe Luke Rodgers was hating on Joe Flacco, he was more or less, pointing out to the powers that be, that Aaron should be next.

According to FOXSports.com’s Alex Marvez, the Green Bay Packers chose not to franchise receiver Greg Jennings after all.
After weeks of speculation, general manager Ted Thompson elected to let Jennings hit the market and most likely ending his run in Green Bay. Marvez tweeted the following:

The path is now clear for Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings to leave via free agency.
A source told FOXSports.com that the Packers decided against using their franchise tag on Jennings, whose contract expired at the end of last season.
Green Bay had weighed doing so but such a move would have consumed 10.54 million of the team's 123 million salary cap. The Packers...

end of last season.
Fox Sports' Alex Marvez confirmed Monday afternoon that Jennings will not receive the franchise tag, sending him to the open market.
Whilst Greg Jennings has not yet put his home in Green Bay on the market, perhaps it is now time to call the real estate agent as Mr. Jennings is now on the free agent market merry-go-round.

Alex Marvez reports that a source has informed Fox Sports that the Green Bay Packers will not use their franchise tag on WR Greg Jennings.
This isn’t exactly a surprising move, despite a report from last week that the Packers were considering the idea of franchising Jennings. It would have cost them close to $11 million next season to retain Jennings via the designation.
The ink has barely dried on the record breaking contract that Joe Flacco signed on Monday with the Baltimore Ravens and there is already talk about how this deal will affect the contract Aaron Rodgers eventually signs with the Green Bay Packers.
After a sluggish regular season, Flacco showed he is well worth the 6-year $120 million contract he was rewarded with earlier this week...
Quarterbacks around the NFL had to be looking in at the deal that Baltimore Ravens signal caller Joe Flacco received, none more that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, a reigning Super Bowl MVP himself, and arguably the best quarterback in the NFL currently, is winding down his current contract. He is currently inked through 2014, but the Packers should seriously...
