Ravens and Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco have agreed to deal, as@JayGlazer reported. Expected to make Flacco highest-paid QB in NFL history.

They'll be regretting this big time in a few years

This......bunch of f**king tools. Flacco got hot for about 4-5 games, it'll be interesting to see what happens when he comes back down to earth again shortly.

Saw a report suggesting Flacco deal will be 6 years. Interesting length, considering maximum proration for bonuses is 5 years.

6th year on Flacco deal would suggest a second-year option bonus, prorated over years 2-6.
6yr 120 million nope not worth it
f**k Joe Flacco... he's got our ring!!!

$20.1 mill a year... Burr
Ravens are idiots. They can't sign anybody else probably have to cut some all for average joe.
BWAHAHAHAHA!!

Highest paid player EVER. That is hilarious. Joe Flacco isnt even a top 10 QB. There are at least 12 QB i would rather have.

Hes in the playoffs every year because of the defense. Way to ruin the QB market Baltimore. Now Kaep is going to end up costing us a freaking fortune.
He'll restructure a couple times Im sure. Most QB's do. Big Ben just did, Alex did, and so have others.

There's definitely a case for him to be the highest paid QB right now. He's one playoff games every year in his career and won a super bowl in his 5th year and he's still only 28. Brady hasn't won a super bowl in 8 years and has lost 2 since then. If the Ravens win just one more super bowl while he's there then the contract is worth it.
Plus in a couple years there will be a couple more QB contracts probably bigger than this.

So if Flacco continues to win games in the playoffs, yet will only get you 22-25 regular season TDs, is that enough to make the 20 million per year worth it to the Ravens? Is winning enough to justify the contract?
Congratulations Joe Flacco you just cost your team all the free agents that got you the Super Bowl ring in the first place!

His defense was ranked middle of the pack. He lit it up in the playoffs and had one of the best post-seasons ever for a QB. He's easily a top QB.

Absolutely. It's the only thing that matters.
It's not like this Ravens defense was even close to being as good as the 2000 Ravens defense. While Reed and Lewis are the two of the best of all time, at this stage of their careers they are replaceable.
The defense aren't the ones handing off to Rice or throwing to Smith, Boldin, Jones, and Pitta.
