Linta confirms Flacco agreement in principle

The Ravens have “reported” that they have struck an agreement in principle with quarterback Joe Flacco.  Now, Flacco’s agent has confirmed it.

“While I was in flight earlier today, the Ravens verbally agreed to all of our terms,” Linta said in a statement issued to Adam Caplan.  “However, Joe and I have not received the contract back to review.  Once we get the contract and review it (assuming there are no issues), Joe will sign it.”

The phrase “assuming there are no issues” could be regarded as ominous.  If there are issues, there possibly will be no deal.

Still, that would be a shock.  Once the money is right, the rest of the terms come together, unless one side is asking for something unreasonable or extraordinary.

And if the money puts him at the top of the quarterback mountain, it would take a lot to get the deal to crumble at this point.

    I’m interested in the NFC this year. Mainly because we all know who is going to win the AFC. Jealous of our prestige?

    He’s like a classier version of Big Ben

    okay this is the 4th story today about this… who cares? it’s just Joe Flacco not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.. geez

    Hopefully a contract so large that it renders the Ravens noncompetitive for the next 5-7 years.

    There are already 5 stories about the Flacco deal. This is partly why I don’t even want to visit this site anymore. Do we really need to know every microscopic detail of his deal? When can football fans just go back to watching the game and not care about how much each player makes and every detail about it?

    There is dancing in the streets in all AFC cities. The rat turds have sealed their fate for at least the next six years. Throw it up and run under it Flacco. When Rice is gone what have you got….fill in the blanks.

    Ravens had to sign the guy. Only the future will tell whether it was worth it.

    Drew Brees wants an explanation

    How much is guaranteed and how much of the contract is back-loaded? Either way it’s a good time to be an average NFL QB.

    Here we go Ravens Here we go!!

    Best franchise in the league!

    He’s better than Ben.

    Unless your QB is Brady or Big Ben, then Flacco has as many or more rings. Average indeed.

  13. yinzer7 says: Mar 1, 2013 8:32 PM

    One of only 7 QBs in the league that have won a Super Bowl and the only one with a 9-4 playoff record in the past five years

  14. ravenaintor says: Mar 1, 2013 8:57 PM

    I’ll be willing to bet that Joe Flacco isn’t even a starting NFL QB in 6 years.

  15. onebucplace says: Mar 1, 2013 9:11 PM

    Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer won Super Bowls, does mean they should have been the highest paid player a year later? BTW, Johnson was obviously better than Dilfer but he was better than Flacco as well — and I didn’t even think that much of Johnson other than he was a solid starting QB.

    Ha Ha Haaa…the Browns were ready to give Joe $150 million…We got a BARGAIN

    And Tony Grossi just lost his BIG STORY of the entire free agent period.

    He wanted the Browns to sign EVERY Raven Free agent…now the Browns get to sign NOBODY.

    Forgot Eli but well put.

    this team is in store for a very disappointing season…

    It’s funny to hear Browns fans knocking Joe Flacco. They’d have given one of their kidneys to get him.

  20. guitarkevin says: Mar 1, 2013 11:59 PM

    If Flacco doesn’t get paid then the next guy doesn’t get paid. All you people hating are jealous. And the Ravens front office know how to keep this team competitive year in and year out. It is painfully obvious that you all wish your team was as successful as the Ravens are every year.

    A typical steelers (device used to clean a woman’s vag) using the all original rat bird rat turd phrase to describe the team he is envious of

  22. jlv3gem says: Mar 2, 2013 2:30 AM

    Watch every Ravens playoff game from this year, note: none against the Steelers, and tell me Ben Raperburger can make half of the throws Joe Flacco made. Nah.
