According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, talks between the Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco’s agent Joe Linta are ongoing.  He says a deal can get done very soon or could take some time. The Ravens will have until Monday (March 4th) to get a deal done with Flacco before they’ll be forced to place the franchise tag on him.  If they use the exclusive tag, it will cost them $19.6 million against the salary cap.  If they use the non-exclusive tag, the Ravens will owe Flacco $14.5 million for 2013. If the Ravens to end up tagging Flacco, they’re going to want to give him a new contract as soon as possible so they can lower his cap number to give themselves room to sign some of their own free agents.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
