Flacco to be looking for $20M !!
 
Flacco's contract is up and......
As reported by John Clayton on ESPN yesterday "Bad news for Baltimore fans.....Joe Flacco is looking for a deal in the $20 million dollar a year range minimum - very possibly MORE than that.."
His agent will be taking "the more than that" part to the team after beating a host of other elite QB's in this years playoff games.
There goes a big drain on your cap, Baltimore. Get ready - it's coming. Welcome to the party.

OK, he's been really impressive in these playoffs, and the Ravens wouldn't be there without him, but $20 million a year, if I were the Ravens I'd let him walk. He'll kill that team.

I've probably underestimated Flacco in the past but he's not worth that much. He just isn't.

Agreed. And based on the history, I don't think the Ravens will pay him that much. In the past they have only been willing to pay what a player is worth (Jets maybe should take note).

Most likely if they can't get a deal, they will franchise him next year, and with Ray, Ed, Kruger, Boldin, and others most likely being gone next season, we will be able to sign him for a reasonable price after what I am expecting to be a letdown season next year.

In my opinion, the best NFL QB's go in this order *as of now*

Rodgers
P. Manning
Brady
Roethlisberger
Brees
E. Manning
Flacco
---------
RG3 (He's a badass ok?)



Notice how the players above Flaccid Dick don't make that money?

Well, the one thing is that every year, salaries go up a bit. In the last few (especially for franchise QB's), the cost has gone up DRAMATICALLY.

Be very - very glad that Ben signed his deal a few years back. If his contract was up this year like Flacco's - we'd be in for a serious hurtin' - because Ben's market value is actually much more than his current big contract is.

I don't necessarily disagree with your list entirely, but if we are going off of value as of today and not based on their career, then I would have to put P. Manning and Big Ben below Flacco. They are old and banged up.

Also, in that list, who is in a contract year? Flacco. Also, of that list, who is still playing the 2012 season? Just Flacco.

I am predicting we will see somewhere in the area of 6 yrs $80M.

Flacco hasn't won a Super Bowl, can't consistently beat the Steelers despite having a third string Quarterback in and his signature play is throw-and-pray-there's-a-flag but is demanding 20 million a year? Is this guy kidding?

Rice means more to that offense than Flacco does.
