But I just had a nice chuckle in a text message thanks to autocorrect about this very subject. I'll see if I can upload.

Default Re: Flacco got paid

Above average QB gettin paid like a top 3 guy. I understand that QB's are a premium in this league and the guy just had a hell of a run in the post-season but I think this will mark the downfall of Baltimore. The defense is getting old and they just shelled out a huge chunk of their cap space for a guy that in my opinion is not elite.

I don't put flacco in Brady Bree's or mannings class but he really delivered during money time. If they get another ring with him it'll be worth it. Well just have to wait and see.

This is great news for every other team in the AFC. Baltimore just wrecked their cap for the next 4-6 years. I'm happy with that.

Anyone have a list of their pending free agents. No way they resign their top guys after that stunt. Boldin bailed out flacco 9 times out of 10.

Yep.

Sad thing is, they let Cam Cameron hold Flacco back for so long. I'm sure Cam brought Joe up to speed early on, but it seems obvious it wasn't working these last 2/3 years. It'll be interesting to see a full season w/o Cam.

**Interesting side note to this: One of those salary cap casualties could be All-Pro fullback Vonta Leach, who is regarded by pundits and his peers as the NFL’s best at his position...

He was always going to get paid after the Superbowl, but that boy just got PAID.

Absolutely nuts money for a guy who had questionmarks going into January.

That's the first thing I thought. The Ravens FO has done a good job until now. This is their first big screw up.

When he was acquired from the Buffalo Bills, Evans had two years and over $7.5 million remaining on his contract; Evans' $3.275 million base salary was reduced to $810,000, with the Ravens giving the 30-year-old receiver a $2.465 million signing bonus that is prorated over the next two seasons. Evans had a $100,000 "likely to be earned incentive" for this season, which has been increased to $150,000 and is tied to his average yards per reception. =he never saw this as he was injured for most of the season- he only had 4 receptions going into the playoffs.

He was cut after the season and only cost us about 4 million.

Congrats to Flacco, he will be the sole reason the Ravens will have to gut the team to pay him....


Enjoy that Championship, last one you are gonna see for a while while you are rebuilding through the draft...

Or at least to the DB coach that got fired.

Flacco was going to get a big contract, anyway. He would have been the most sought after QB on the market, Super Bowl win or not. Flacco really responded to the coaching change, and looked like a much more confident QB. His postseason was superb. Flacco is the best player on the Ravens now. This contract should not come as a surprise.
