Ravens “report” that they have Flacco “agreement in principle”

AP

The Ravens have addressed reports that they have an agreement in place with quarterback Joe Flacco.

In a bizarre tweet from the team’s official account, the Ravens have declared that they “have an agreement in principle with QB Joe Flacco, via NFL source.”  (Apparently, the Ravens spell Jay Glazer’s name s-o-u-r-c-e, too.)

We realize that the NFL has an ever-growing house band known as “NFL Media” that operates, sort of, as an independent entity.  But most if not all teams don’t have their own “reporters.”  And we can’t think of any other time that as a team has used its Twitter account, Facebook page, or official website to “report” information about itself.

The Ravens also “report” that the “[d]eal [is] not yet complete,” and that they “[a]nticipate agreement.”

There’s no agreement until there’s an agreement.  There’s no agreement until the document is signed.

And there’s no reason to think that anything unusual will happen.  Other than the fact that, you know, unusual things already are happening.

  1. Pointless. Ravens sign Flacco. Ravens continue to dominate in the playoffs. Get used to it haters.

  2. Flacco’s brother plays in the Orioles minor league sysem, he’s going to be a beast as well

  3. Why would u pay this man the highest paid qb in history and yet u have to struggle to sign key players I hope he falls on his face

  4. It’s funny that if Flacco was such a stud, why did they wait so long to resign him?

    Obviously they were not convinced he was “the guy” so they waited and dang if he didn’t get a good run and win the big one. Now they have to pay him a Pelosi load more than they would have months ago.

    Soooo…….which Flacco comes back next year? The SB winner or the guy they didn’t think enough of to sign to a new contract?

  5. Joe “the cap obliterator ” Flacco is gonna sink the ravens next year. He also just jacked up the price of the contracts for guys like Rodgers and when the 4 years is up on this years amazing rookie class, along with guys like cam and kaepernick. Eventually this is gonna result in either other positions taking massive pay cuts, or a very significant raise in the salary cap.

  6. Why cite an “NFL source”? There is no way that is official. That is some flunkie in charge of the twitter account that heard the report and had to get the “news” out. It is not any form of official confirmation. That would come via official press release/conference with all the dogs and ponies rather than from something as tacky as twitter.

  7. Well, looks like back to back Super Bowls for Baltimore. Bravo.

    Yup cancel all the games in the AFC the raven fan boys have declared it over…please you fat heads have no class, humility, or brains in any order of your choosing.

  8. one source says his cap number could be as low as 7 million next year..amazing. and nofool if you are seriously this upset about the success of the ravens and the fans being happy…grow up. its not like all steeler fans are respectful and kind…most are… just like most ravens fans are. if you dont like how we celebrate stop coming on here…go ravens!!

    Are you watching your meds? Can you read? Or are you only reading posts by steeler fans. Make a deal you stay off steeler threads and I will stay off yours…bet you can’t because your mouth can’t be still the SB has made you a keyboard tiger… Roar.lol

  10. oh its a deal my friend. but you will crack because you will come on ravens threads just for ravenator. the steelers not having success last year has made you very angry. good luck to ya

  11. The Ravens media staff is not in the know with what is going on, except Kevin Bryne. A lot of the times the guys that run the twitter account and website get their information from guys like Jay Glazer.

  12. This is great, Crackhoe has just put himself in last place in the north… They will be lucky to be a 500 team this year. They now don’t have a felon playing Tony Robins…Remember they only won 1 game with out him.. Oh I forgot that’s normal in Baltimore…… (The armpit of the earth)…… Enjoy..

  13. Over rate and one year wonder!

    No player is worth that kind of money.

    Ravens are oldest team in the NFL and will be re-building. They just wasted all thta money for next six years.

  14. When did the ravens dominate anybody. I love how fans of a team remember things. Remember they lucked out against the broncos and had to hang on for dear life in the Super Bowl. Dominate
