Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to make $22 million in 2017 – but that will make him only the sixth-highest paid QB in the league, behind the likes of Carson Palmer, Kirk Cousins and Joe Flacco.
Rodgers addressed his contract status publicly on Tuesday and noted that an extension to his current deal — which runs through 2019 — should take care of itself.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Undisputed,” Skip Bayless and Shanno Sharpe reacted to Rodgers’ comments.
Aaron Rodgers: “I know my value”
This is typical Aaron Rodgers
“Typical Aaron Rodgers, the biggest diva in all of sports.
“He can’t do it the way Tom Brady does it and negotiate quietly and privately. Nope, he’s got to cause a big distraction, create a big uproar in his locker room by stating the obvious. He’s ‘indispensable to this team.’ You have to say that? Really? After … this is going to be his 13th year in the league?”
Shannon Sharpe: “Sometimes you have to remind people.”
Skip Bayless: “Oh, you have to remind people you’re indispensable? You know, that is interesting, because he’s only won one ring in 13 years. Wow, that’s not that great, right?”
