Unless there is some huge fall out with the Ravens, teams should not even pursue Flacco.Even though Flacco would be a great land for a team if they could lure him away from the Ravens, here are some big named players that teams should pass on -- even if they are the ones reaching out to your team for a job.

Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette writes that the Packers are unlikely to use their franchise tag on WR Greg Jennings.
This really isn’t all that shocking given that there hasn’t been any indication from the Packers that he’s a part of their long-term plans.
Vandermause adds that Green Bay has made no recent attempts to offer Jennings a new contract and expects...
This past Monday marked the first calendar day NFL teams could franchise tag their free agents ahead of a long offseason. At the moment only five or six names look to be a guaranteed certainty in terms of their future, while the rest of the pool swims freely in doubt.
Names like Joe Flacco and Jairus Byrd will be linked to beefy contracts in no-time – neither the Ravens or the...
According to the National Football Post, even though Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will likely get the $20 million per season that he’s looking for, many personnel men around the league don’t believe he’s an “elite” quarterback. Joe Flacco very well may become the highest paid quarterback in the NFL in the very near future, but many personnel men still do not consider him...
Charles Woodson doesn’t have a football job.
Donald Driver just retired from his.
Greg Jennings is likely headed for a short stay on the unemployment line.
It’s that time of year when you realize there are major differences in the way fans feel about “their” teams and the way it is viewed by those that play for and manage those teams.
Pro football, as they say, is a business...
Free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings hasn’t been able to stay healthy recently
Teams are allowed to begin using the franchise tag today, but don’t look for the Packers to employ that mechanism to ensure keeping Greg Jennings around for another season.

We continue our look at this year’s crop of free agents by taking a gander at some of the wide receivers and tight ends that are set to hit the open market. There are many good names still in the prime of their careers at both positions, unlike the QBs and RBs we looked at in our last installment. Teams will be opening the checkbook for some of these past Pro Bowlers, making some...

The Baltimore Ravens have an opportunity to place the franchise tag on Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco, but will they use it? It seems when the Ravens use the franchise tag on a player, that player usually signs a major contract by the end of the offseason. Terrell Suggs in 2009, Haloti Ngata in 2011, and Ray Rice in 2012 are just a few examples of what could happen to Joe Flacco... Read more
Of course, the Ravens’ biggest priority this offseason is to figure out how to keep defending Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco in a Ravens uniform. He’s been asking for big money (Howard doesn’t believe Flacco deserves it) but the Ravens have other options. They can negotiate him down to earth considering he has had one great postseason and does not deserve Tom Brady/Drew Brees/Aaron...
