Joe Flacco has turned his Super Bowl-winning performance into a six-year, $120.6 million contract, making him the highest paid player in the NFL by annual salary. But his contract could be surpassed soon by the Falcons and Matt Ryan, and will surely be smaller than whatever contract Aaron Rodgers ends up signing with the Packers. What does the future hold for Ryan and would the Cowboys re-upping long-term with Tony Romo be a mistake?
Only one in 10 SportsNation voters thinks Tony Romo will ever get the Cowboys to a Super Bowl. Would a long-term deal be a mistake?
Matt Ryan has better regular-season numbers than Flacco, but he doesn't have the postseason success or Super Bowl ring to go with it.
How high will it go?
Will Rodgers, a free agent in 2015, re-sign early? How much guaranteed money? What kind of contracts will Matt Ryan and Tony Romo sign?
