Ravens owner Joe Bisciotti told reporters on Thursday that they offered QB Joe Flacco a ”top-5 contract” last summer, per Albert Breer. If true, it would make Flacco’s decision to play out the final season of his contract all the more remarkable. Flacco, 28, will definitely secure a $100 million contract at some point, but it will be interesting to see just how much guaranteed cash is included in his next contract. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome told reporters that they will not use their franchise tag on anyone other than Flacco, but wouldn’t say whether or not he would be willing to use the exclusive franchise tag. Applying the tag is simply a band-aid solution for Baltimore as it would buy them extra time to negotiate a long-term deal. Aaron Rodgers has said that he intends to monitor the situation, as will other quarterbacks like Matt Ryan.
