PLAYERS: Joe Flacco
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
In what will be the most-watched storyline of the Baltimore offseason, the Joe Flacco contract, there is a tidbit of news. According to multiple reports, the Ravens and Flacco will begin contract talks this week. If the two sides can’t come to an agreement, the Ravens must place the franchise tag on their quarterback by March 4. I really don’t know if the two sides will come to an agreement, although it’s very possible. The numbers of the contract just have to be cap friendly for the Ravens in the first two seasons. We’ll see where this one goes.
