Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is content with playing out his contract and says that he will talk about a contract extension with the team when the time comes.

For now, he is happy that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees received his big contract worth $100 million.

"You got to say he's a fortunate man,"Rodgers told NFL.com about Brees. "I don't think he's complaining right now. That stuff takes care of itself, I still have a few years left on my deal, and we'll talk about that when we get there."

Rodgers, the 2011 NFL Most Valuable Player, signed a six-year, $65 million contract in 2008. He will make $8.5 million this year, $9.75 million in 2013 and $11 million in 2014.
