    Ongoing Flacco Contract Negotiations (Merged)



    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...w-brees-money/

    might or might not get it




    “He’s now made a case for $20 million a year,” Clayton said. “And I think he’s gonna try to hold to that. Last season what I was hearing was he was asking for about $17 million. … But he was saying ‘okay fine, let me play this out.’ Now he’s in a position to make big money. And we’ll see if he can get over Drew Brees’ contract. I think he can.”

    I'd love to know where they got this from. From all indications there have been no talks about contract from either side regarding Flacco.

    He may be looking for that, but I haven't heard anything about either side discussing it.

    yeah, clarification, it doesn't say he DID ask for it, it says he COULD ask for it.

    JFC - $20M/yr? You'd think, 'No way'.

    But, (hopefully) he brings the Lombardi home on Sunday, then what? Can the FO say, 'No'?

    If he wins a SB then he will have all the leverage, if he doesn't, then who knows.

    I think he's going to get around 20 mil per year.

    He'll get at least 18mil/year without a doubt. It wouldn't surprise me if he ended up getting 20 mil. 6 year 120 mil or 5 year 100.

    What the FO can say is "Franchise Tag".

    That is assuming they find Joe (and his agent's) demands too high. Would play hell with the salary cap, but still a very real prospect.

    Very true about the Franchise Tag. However, isn't the FT, ~$17M/yr? Not to mention, if a long term contract isn't agreed upon this off-season, i'm assuming Flacco's (and QB's in general) price tag will go up again next year.

    It's Bisciotti's money, so he will pay Flacco whatever he wants to pay him. My concern about paying Flacco $20 million/year was that tying up so much money in the QB position would mean that the Ravens would not have the cap room to be able to surround him with the kind of players that he needs to be successful. However, if the Ravens win the Super Bowl on Sunday night, as a fan I am good for the next five years. That wonderful memory will carry me through some potentially mediocre seasons to come.

    Franchise tag would be $14M for the year.

    That definitely makes a difference. Thanks for clarifying.

    I completely agree, the ravens will be forced to rely on the draft for years to come. I still think that Ozzie will be able to pull his late offseason magic and bring in cheap stud free agents. We will likely find ourselves in the situation we currently have with Kruger I.e not being able to resign him. If flacco does bring home a ring, I honestly feel that we have as good a chance as any other team to bring home another especially since flacco has at least one more season with Caldwell. This combined with the fact that the front office is very likely to restock the defense through the draft this year. But all of that being said we may not be able to replenish the talent lost the last two years and could be mediocre for a couple years.

    I don't know what he's asking for but most of us agree he will get around $18M likely. So why not ask for $20 as your starting point? The Ravens don't want to franchise him over $1M a year when they can work out a long term deal

    It will take a Brees like contract to get him signed, and it will likely be a similar game of chicken and tag until it gets done, but as long as there is a franchise tag, guys like Brees and Flacco are not going to get to free agency, but will get paid.
