Coach John Harbaugh joked that the Ravens said the team should “pay the man” after Joe Flacco torched the Bengals on Monday night. As it turns out, the Ravens turned off the talks during training camp.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team tabled the talks several weeks ago.
Agent Joe Linta told PFT earlier this week that Flacco isn’t troubled by the non-talks, but that Flacco hasn’t ordered Linta to pull the plug on talks. Instead, Linta is ready to talk whenever the Ravens are ready to talk.
But the Ravens apparently aren’t ready to talk, and they may not be ready to talk for a while.
That favors Flacco, if he keeps playing like he did in Week One.
