    I can't even imagine him wearing anything else, I think I would want to throw up if he ever left Green Bay for another franchise. Cross your fingers it doesn't become a "DREW BREES situation"

    I love it...at one point or another every player of any notoriety is forced to utter that phrase.

    There is no telling, of course, how this thing plays out over the course of the next few years but, I will say that Rodgers seems to be a really good guy - if he's the same person that we see projected through the sports media, his parents should be given MAJOR props for molding him into the man he's become.

    We've heard this a hundred times. Hopefully when crunch time comes, this will hold true. I will say this: he guys we have playing at the big-money positions (Rodgers, Jennings, Matthews, Williams) don't seem to be nearly as money-motivated as most of their league counterparts. I like that.

    Our team is smarter than most when it comes to managing the cap. I'm confident they'll find a way to get a deal done.

    Truthfully, none of those guys have had huge years before they resigned a contract. Ya they seem that way now, but we don't really know until their next deal comes around. I'm hoping we get a 6-8 year contract with Rodgers though, and hopefully we get him for less than 25 mil/year which could be possible when the time comes.

    They'll all get their payday, and I'm actually thinking that Jennings might be let go if he doesn't settle for less than what his stats suggest he's worth.

    Rodgers is signed through 2014 as of now. He'll turn 29 Dec.2nd. IMO the best case scenario contrct wise for Rodgers would be an 8yr $150M. That's an avg. of $18.75M per year. Rodgers signs next yr then the contract will take him through his 37th b-day.

    If we could sign him for an average of 18.75M a year, that may end up being a serious bargain. With the new TV money coming in next season, the cap will likely go up quite a bit. It may not be long before we see the top QBs making $30M a year.

    $18.75M would definatly be a bargin. If I were Rodgers I'd want to be one of the highest pd players but then Rodgers seems like he's down to earth & doesn't complain. I figure Brees will get about $20M & Rodgers deserves to be paid as much as if not more than Brees

    It's going to be awhile before the cap jumps up at a crazy rate due to tv money. It's kind of a misconception.

    I never expected Drew Brees to act like he is, him being a nice guy and all

    I too thought the cap was going to spike in 2014 when the TV money is due to increase but according to the ESPN article linked below, ivo is correct and the reason is because the cap was supposed to be lower this season and the NFLPA traded future benefit dollars to prop up the cap this year and next. This article says that in spite of the increase in TV money in 2014, the cap in 2015 could be only $122. Considering it was $123M in 2009 it looks like the league really kicked the NFLPA's behind in the current CBA.

    Depends. What will he feel when the team isn't 15-1 and misses the playoffs a year or two.
