It won't be too long before Aaron Rodgers becomes the highest-paid player in NFL history. It could be a week or two. Perhaps a month or two.
But given the ongoing negotiations between the star quarterback and the Packers, the progress to this point and the accepted reality between the sides that Rodgers is going to eclipse in most every way the recent record contract signed by Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, it's only a matter of time before he becomes the league's first $25-million a year man, or damn close to it.
It will happen this offseason and after the rumblings I've heard the last few weeks, including the league meetings in Arizona last week, I would not be surprised if a deal was struck before the draft.
