Joe Flacco's expiring contract doesn't seem to concern anyone with the Baltimore Ravens, including the quarterback himself.
Flacco practically shrugged Thursday when asked about potentially being a free agent after the Ravens play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
The fifth-year pro and only quarterback to win a playoff game in each of his first five seasons could not reach a deal with the team before 2012 kicked off. He could be on the market in March, although the Ravens could franchise-tag him at about $14.6 million for next year.
Coach John Harbaugh says the uncertain contract status for the only quarterback to win six road playoff games ''has been amazingly unchallenging.'' And Flacco calls it ''a good problem to have.''

However, don’t expect him to hit the free agent market in March, especially with his recent play under center during the playoffs.
