Joe Flacco‘s opinion may not be popular with the Ravens’ front office, but it’s one that will resonate with his teammates and the NFL players’ association. The Ravens’ quarterback supports Anquan Boldin‘s decision to reject a pay cut from Baltimore. Boldin’s cap number is $7.531 million for 2013, and the Ravens’ are in a bit of a bind salary cap-wise after signing Flacco to a six-year, $120 million contract. “Without him, we don’t win the Super Bowl. He’s a huge part of this team and someone I want to see back,” Flacco told USA Today. “Obviously, when you’re a player of his caliber, you believe you’re worth a number and that’s what you should get. He’s going to stick to his guns, and that’s the way it should be.” Boldin was a big part of the Ravens’ Super Bowl-winning team. He had 65 receptions for 921 yards four four touchdowns during the regular season. He added another 22 receptions for 380 yards and four touchdowns during Baltimore’s postseason run. If Boldin continues to refuse to restructure his deal, the Ravens may need to cut Boldin loose. It was been rumored recently that Boldin could get even more money on the open market than he would make next season in Baltimore. Photo via Facebook/Baltimore Ravens from B/R
