Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens agree to new contract

It's official, Joe Flacco isn't going anywhere.

Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported the Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with the quarterback. He's expected to sign the deal Monday.

The Ravens were prepared to franchise Flacco if a deal wasn't completed by the start of free agency. There was no way they would let him hit the open market.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reported that Joe Flacco's deal is for six years and would make him the highest paid player in the NFL -- making it worth more than $120 million. The deal is expected to be finalized Sunday night or Monday morning. Flacco will be in Baltimore on Monday to sign the deal, according to Breer.

I think this is good news for Steelers fans. Everyone forgets Flacco's struggles in the regular season this past year. They are only remembering his hot streak in the playoffs and Super Bowl. While it was a great run, I still think Flacco is a very inconsistent QB and not worthy of the biggest contract in NFL history (at least until the next one).

This locks the Ravens up long term to a QB who is not only up and down, but hurts their chances of re-signing other key veterans. They will have a hard time keeping Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Danell Ellerbe, Vontae Leach, Anquan Boldin and others now. Some of their guys will be leaving via free agency because of this and that can only help the Steelers' chances of regaining the division.

its actually bad news for Baltimore fans...

Way, Way, WAY too much money to give someone - especially a 'very good" QB, but not a great one. They will feel the pain elsewhere - and in a BIG way.
Actually this is good news for the rest of the division.

Good lord, no! I couldn't stomach hearing that flat, emotionless, monotone voice attempting to "sing".

Just check out his electrifying performances in these commercials...

A. Rogers must be grinning and ecstatic, when he's up for a new deal, he has tons of leverage with the ravens making an admittedly good, but inconsistent QB the top paid player in the league.

They're going to regret that. I contend that Flacco is an above average QB but he's a QB that needs a solid supporting cast around him. We shall see what happens though since Baltimore's scouting is good. One's thing is for sure though. Flacco got hot at the right time and it just made him a very wealthy man. I hope this ruins the Ravens.

They had to pay him. He's not worth anywhere near that, though.
