According to Rotoworld.com, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported that the Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco are very close to getting an extension completed.
“Joe Flacco and the Ravens made ‘great progress’ toward an extension in camp, and ‘one phone call might be enough to get it done.’ La Canfora reports the monetary gap between the sides is ‘not great,’ so it’s still possible a deal could get done during the regular season. However, most signs still point toward Flacco playing out the final year of his rookie. If that’s the case, he’ll be a strong candidate for the franchise tag in the offseason. wrote Rotoworld.
There’s no doubt that Flacco will be in Baltimore for years to come, it’s just a matter of time before he gets the extension he’s been waiting for.

Flacco seemed...
When you think of the top quarterbacks in fantasy football, the Ravens’ Joe Flacco does not automatically come to mind. That’s because a typical Baltimore team wins on defense, not offense, and the Ravens’ Ray Rice is really the offensive star of the team, at least from fantasy football standards. The Ravens, however, made a [...]
BALTIMORE -- One game into the 2012 season, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco stated his case for a long-term, multi-million dollar contract. Flacco was 21-for-29 and threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns in Baltimore's 44-13 win over Cincinnati on Monday.

If the Ravens front office was looking for leverage in contract negotiations with Joe Flacco, they found none this week. Baltimore is expected to give Flacco more freedom this season and let him run the no-huddle offense, and he turned that freedom into 21-for-29 passing, 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 44-13 win over Cincinnati Monday night. He also got the ultimate...
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Joe Flacco deftly directed Baltimore new, no-huddle offense, and the Ravens' defense administered an old-fashioned whipping on the Cincinnati Bengals.
Flacco threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, Ed Reed took an interception 34 yards for a score, and the Ravens rolled to a 44-13 victory Monday night to extend their home winning streak to 11 games.
The Bengals viewed their first game as a chance to show they've made big strides in the offseason. Instead, they matched the worst season-opening loss in franchise history.
The defense was shredded during a 44-13 loss in Baltimore on Monday night that demonstrated there's still a big gap between them and the elite in the AFC North. Joe Flacco threw for 299 yards in little...

WAS IT WORTH IT?
Maurice Jones-Drew was reportedly fined only about half of what the Jaguars could have fined him for holding out, but it was still a significant sum of money.
Last week: 15 (+1)
This is the first in 4 straight controversial rankings. Two of my early season bold predictions, Titans over Ravens and Rams over 49ers, took a hit on an otherwise solid week 1, but I hate to change predictions after 1 week. I’d rather be wrong than flip flop because I think I’m wrong and then be proven right. Everyone is wrong about stuff. If I’m...
