no where does that say he wants or his agents wants him to be the highest paid in the league.

"....Flacco isn't just an elite quarterback, he's going to be among the richest:
Talk about contract leverage. Flacco is 9-4 in the playoffs since coming into the league five years ago. He has been to three conference championship games, and now he has a Super Bowl ring. What a year to be a free agent. His agent, Joe Linta, can continue to make the case his client should get upward of $20 million a year. Flacco now has as many Super Bowl rings as Peyton Manning
and Drew Brees
, who make $19.2 million and $20 million a year, respectively.
Ravens ownership has vowed not to let Flacco leave via free agency. It can either place the franchise tag on him or give him one of the most lucrative contracts in NFL history.
Flacco completed one of the greatest Super Bowl runs for a quarterback. He tied a postseason record with 11 touchdown passes (over four games), matching Arizona's Kurt Warner
(2008) and San Francisco's Joe Montana
(1989). Flacco completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns in the Super Bowl. For the playoffs, he completed 73 of 126 attempts for 1,140 yards -- and, perhaps most important, no interceptions.
"It's unbelievable," Flacco said. "We don't make it easy. & That's the way we are."
