re: Sanchez will make $12 million, Rodgers will make $9.7 million in 2013(Posted by EyeOfTheTiger311 on 2/13/13 at 1:28 pm to longhorn22)
It's just like cowherd said the other day when talking about flacco's upcoming contract... You're not worth what you do on the field, you're worth what you can negotiate. Everyone knows that Rodgers/Brady/Brees/Manning are the best qbs, but Flacco will be paid more than most if not all of them. He just got hot at the right time and has all of the leverage.
Same thing happens to free agent QBs and high draft picks... Look at Kolb, Matt Flynn, Vick, etc.... You're worth what you're agent can get you and what the market dictates at the time of your deal.
