Two days after the Carroll County Times reported the two sides were not close on a new deal, the Baltimore Sun is now reporting that the Ravens are unlikely to extend Joe Flacco before the season. Flacco is heading into the final year of his 5 year rookie deal and the Ravens would obviously love to lock up the quarterback who has won a playoff game in each of his first 4 seasons in the league. However, Flacco is reportedly seeking top-5 quarterback money after proclaiming himself the best quarterback in the league.
He wins a lot, but he’s had a ton of help and has never had a 4000 yard season so he’s simply not worth that much. The Ravens are giving Ray Rice, who has yet to sign his franchise tender, precedence over Flacco, who making unreasonable demands and is no threat to hold out. The Ravens will have the franchise tag available next offseason to use on Flacco and it seems like they’ll deal with him then. He’ll need to do what Eli Manning did this year to earn a top-5 contract.

The Baltimore Ravens aren’t anywhere close to working out a long-term contract extension with quarterback Joe Flacco, according to Aaron Wilson of The Carroll County Times. Flacco, 27, is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the two sides have been discussing an extension since February. There’s still plenty of time for Flacco [...]
According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, even though quarterback Joe Flacco is heading into the final year of his current contract, the Baltimore Ravens and his reps aren’t “anywhere close to negotiating a long-term contract extension.”
With Flacco attending OTA’s and not staging a hold out, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ravens waited until the...

2011 defensive player of the year Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles last month, an injury that normally ends a season. However, Suggs said today that he’ll be back in November at “the latest” and that he’s going to “shock a lot of people” when he comes out of the tunnel. Suggs has been incredibly optimistic to this point, but so far in his recovery, there is nothing to...

Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods. That group of players who are not only historic in terms of talent, but even more than that, these are the players who you have to talk about when you tell the story of your team. This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only....
Back at the end of April, Baltimore Ravens’ star linebacker Terrell Suggs tore his achilles tendon. At the time, there were reports that he had torn it while playing in a charity basketball game in Arizona, but Suggs and his people insisted that he tore it while working on his conditioning and preparing for a [...]

One such player I was always a fan of when he was still in Houston was fullback Vonta Leach. But when I saw that the NFL Network placed...

When the Patriots advanced to the Super Bowl, people forget it was courtesy of a missed "chip shot" field goal by the Ravens. That miss hasn't been forgotten by Baltimore's kicker Billy Cundiff. What is Cundiff doing to move on?
