NFL Injury Report:
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco set himself up
nicely entering the offseason, leading his team to a Super Bowl victory before
he’s set to hit the free agent market. But should this result in Flacco
becoming the NFL’s highest-paid player? One person pivotal to negotiations
thinks so, Flacco’s agent Joe Linta, according to Brian A. Shactman of CSNBC.
When asked whether Flacco should be the highest paid
quarterback in the NFL, Linta simply said: "YES."
Linta told CSNBC that following the Ravens Super Bowl win
over the San Francisco 49ers Flacco “immediately becomes a national figure.” As
such, Linta believes his client should become the highest-paid quarterback in
This would mean that Flacco would earn more than the $18
million the Denver Broncos paid Peyton Manning this season. It would also see
him making more than the $20 million per year that New Orleans Saints
quarterback Drew Brees is averaging.
Linta argues that Flacco is younger than both players and
has won just as much as either of them. What type of deal the Super Bowl MVP
ends up with is to be determined, but Flacco and the Ravens appear to have a
mutual interest in reaching an agreement this offseason.

By leading the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl championship, Joe Flacco not only did the best possible thing he could do for the organization, but also for his own contract situation.
