Ravens QB Joe Flacco Disagrees With Agent's 'Dumb Team' Comment
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said he disagrees with his agent's comments that the team was "dumb" not to sign him before the 2012 season.
"I like Joe [Linta's] fire, and I like that he's trying to protect me in any way," Flacco told the Ravens' official website Wednesday. "But in no way do I have those feelings towards the organization. I thought the whole time there was respect on both sides and there will continue to be."
According to Linta, the Ravens could have signed Flacco to a five-year extension that would have averaged $16 million per season but there was a hangup in the talks over "$1 million six years from now."
Flacco led the Ravens to a Super Bowl title last season and earned MVP honors in that game, which resulted in a six-year, $120.6 million deal.
The sides will likely have to rework Flacco's deal in 2016 when his cap number balloons to $28.55 million. Will Linta's comments affect talks at that time? Flacco doesn't believe so.
Thanks to 86WARD for the sig!
