Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco snubbed in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver.

Why Webb is not “in-between a rock and a hard place” following pay cut questions

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Baltimore Ravens have asked veteran cornerback Lardarius Webb to take a pay cut, although it’s not exactly clear as to what that reduction would be.
