Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t likely to hold out until he receives a salary comparable to the game’s best quarterbacks, sources close to Rodgers told CBSSports.com.

Those sources said the Packers’ star “paid close attention” to the contract paid to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, “but there’s no anger. He’s not planning to hold out.”

Rodgers completed 67.2 percent of his throws for 39 touchdowns and eight interceptions, and led the NFL with a quarterback rating of 108. He has two years left on a six-year deal signed in 2008 that pays him $9.25 million in 2013 and $10.5 million in 2014. Flacco and New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees both earn about $20 million per season.
