PLAYERS: Joe Flacco
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
We already know Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco isn’t going anywhere and will be back in 2013 no matter what.  It will come down to whether they can get an extension done before free agency begins in March. ESPN’s John Clayton says if Flacco gets hit with the franchise tag, the Ravens will owe him $14 million in 2013.  He’s looking at making $20 million per season with his next contract, so it might make sense for them to extend Flacco and not place the tag on him. If Flacco does end up earning $20 million per season, he would be right there with what Saints quarterback Drew Brees is getting.  He just signed a new 5-year $100 million deal before the season.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function...
