His agent is asking now for Brady/Rodgers money..
Can the Ravens pay Flacco and then be able to keep Reed, Ngata and others for 2013?

I think Reed will retire this year with Ray Lewis honestly.

Like this isn't being discussed in a bunch of other topics...

Also, Haloti is under contract till 2016.

Where did you hear he is asking for Brady or Rodgers money? I want a link. Not that I don't believe it, but I remember Aaron Wilson saying that Flacco would take around $15M/yr.

I hope Joe is looking for Rodgers money...dude makes under 11M a year.

From what I have heard from people close to the matter, Joe is looking for something in the 15M a year range which is very team friendly considering the market.

100m over 7 years, 40 guaranteed.

Pay the man before Joe Linta starts blowing that sunshine out his rear again.

No, the Ravens should not pay him Brady/Rodgers/Peyton money until he wins the league MVP - throwing for close to or more than 5000 yards, 60%+ completion, 30+ TDs, and less than 10 INTs should do the trick. And no, a mid to high 80s passer rating is not good enough for that type of cap investment.

If that's what Linta wants, slap Flacco with the franchise tag and see what he's up to next year with the permanent changes in a much better o-line (Juan Castillo) and of course Jim Caldwell.

Previous reports have come out that Flacco and his agent were willing to leave some money on the table for other positions. Not sure if that is accurate. IF we win the SB, the odds are good Reed might retire. Either way, I hate to say it, but I don't see Reed being a Raven next season unless they knock out a deal with Flacco and use the franchise tag on him. He'll want too much money long term. We need to try to keep either Ellerbe or Kruger but I don't think we'll be able to keep both. It is the nature of the salary cap.

The first testicular guard, the "Cup" was used in hockey in 1874. The first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took men 100 years to realize their brain was also important.

I want to put this out there: I think Flacco's deal is done early. I think it gets done early, regardless of the outcome but especially if they win it all. Flacco is the franchise QB, and the Ravens know what he is worth. I don't think it will be long after the Super Bowl that we see a deal done.

I don't see him getting the tag.

BAL can't afford NOT to franchise him! Besides, he's the only legitimate staring QB in FA this year.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK THE MODS!!!
 

Honestly, I am surprised that you (Poe) got second. After the draft I thought your team was doomed for failure.

You get used to it. Even posts that don't violate the rules aren't safe.

Believe me, any team in the NFL is going to pay a good QB alot no matter, if they can afford him or not. However, I don't see him getting Brady/Manning money until he is winning MVPs and getting to the Pro-Bowl consistently. He will be a notch below though, which is still plenty.
Eli has a 97$ Mill 6 years contract. Wouldn't surprise me if Joe gets paid a little bit more, just based on the inflated average QB's get thanks to that gargantuan Brees contract. Good luck to the Saints on winning a SB with that, btw.

Unless I see anything different from an inconsistent regular-season Flacco, he is always in that Matt Schaub/Rivers/Romo category. Albeit, his playoff success in the past two years allows him to negotiate a higher contract than those with similar regular season statistics.

There is no way we can pay everyone. Flacco has been good and I am a big supporter of him but to me he has not earned Brady money. He has been great in the post season for the last few yrs now but he has not been consistent enough to get a giant contract he deserves a good contract but not a giant one.

I disagree. The playoffs is where it is most important. I'd rather have a playoff QB than a regular season one. Playoffs is where it counts. There is no next time.

I'd question the source of this rumor (although I would not be surprised if this were true).

But to answer the question, of course we can afford him, especially if he takes $15M - $16M per year as expected for some time now.

Exactly. Even if we didn't have cap room (we will), we would free some up (see ya Cary, McKinnie, Birk)

Joe ain't going anywhere. It'll be a mad dash to figure out his contract before the tag to help free up some space.

Honestly, I'm not worried until after the SB. If we win the SB. I'll be so happy, we can take a pseudo-rebuilding year if need be.
