I agree, his stock has never, and may never, be higher, he'd be acting against his long term interests to not try to get a big pay day now... But the ravens have historically been smart w their money, I'm interested to see what kind of a contract hell get

Flacco had a great year and he capped it off with a SB Championship. Considering he won the SB, he was in a contract year, and the fact he had several records in the playoffs, I think he expects to get the big $. If you're the Ravens I think you don't really have a choice, and you have to pay him. I don't think the contract will come down to $, but rather years.

I remember Ben received a big contract after he won the SB and it was for 7-years. Not saying Ben isn't as good as he was, but his production is down a little bit, and I would think the Steelers may have liked for that deal to be for 4 or 5 years instead of 7. I believe the Ravens will be more frugal with the contract length here than the amount of $ they pay Joe Flacco.

I think Roethlisbeeger got his big contract after the 07 season, his best statistically at the time, but one year before we won the Super Bowl.

Report: Flacco’s deal is worth more than $120 million over six years

Posted by Mike Florio

Agent Joe Linta wanted quarterback Joe Flacco to be the highest-paid quarterback in football.

On the surface, Flacco will be.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the deal covers six year, with a payout in excess of $120 million.

It’s unclear how much the deal will exceed $120 million. To surpass Drew Brees‘ $20 million annual average, it won’t need to exceed $120 million by much.

We proposed something along these lines last week — six years, and just over $120 million.

Still, the structure is unclear. How big is the signing bonus? How much is fully guaranteed? How much is guaranteed for injury only? What is the three-year payout?

Those answers may not come until the contract is signed and filed with the league.

While this isn't unexpected, it's amazing how the Ravens didn't take notice from years of the Steelers facing cap woes post-Big Ben signing.

One thing is for sure now, 'elite' or not, Flacco is going to have to earn that money and that means one thing and one thing only: do or do not, there is no try.
