Joe Flacco is the now highest paid player in NFL history with a six-year, $120.6 million contract, but Aaron Rodgers‘ brother still isn’t impressed.
Luke Rodgers compared the Ravens’ Super Bowl winning quarterback to Bills signal caller Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Joe Flacco is getting 20 million a season. Wow. Can't wait to see Ryan Fitzpatrick's new deal....—

Flacco may not have the honor of being the highest paid player in the game for long. Aaron Rodgers has two years left on the six-year extension he signed in 2008. He’ll be making just $9.25 million in 2013 and $10.5 million in 2014. Rodgers could get another extension this offseason. If he does, his contract would almost definitely top Flacco’s $20 million per year deal.
Rodgers completed 67.2 percent of his passes in 2012 for 4,295 yards, 39 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He led the league with a 108.0 quarterback rating and threw for 7.78 yards per attempt. Flacco threw for 3,817 yards with 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while completing 59.7 percent of his passes. He had an 87.7 quarterback rating and threw for 7.19 yards per attempt.
