The deal he turned down was reportedly $16m per. Apparently the word is he feels he deserves top 5 money around $20m per. He gambled and now can run around yelling "Cha-Ching!!!!"
What if they can't work a deal and Flacco hits the free agent market.... and then signs with the Browns. That would be epic!
