Draft Scout Joe Flacco News
03/05/13 - The Baltimore Ravens announced Monday that they signed quarterback Joe Flacco to a six-year contract.
NFL.com reported Sunday that the deal is worth $120.6 million, the richest in NFL history.
"It wasn't necessarily about the money," Flacco said at his news conference announcing the signing. "It was, at that point, about earning that respect and feeling like I was respected around here. The fact that they have made me that definitely makes me feel good about how I played and how they feel about me."
01/25/13 - QB Joe Flacco's rookie contract is expiring.
He'll either be signed to a long-term deal or retained through a $14.6 million franchise tender.
"I'm not discussing that," general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "Joe and I have a very good understanding about his contract and where we are. End of story."
Meanwhile, Newsome acknowledged that a tight salary cap won't allow the Ravens to retain all of their key free agents, a class that includes three defensive standouts in outside linebacker Paul Kruger (nine sacks), cornerback Cary Williams (four interceptions) and inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (4.5 sacks).
"We knew we were going to lose Rod Woodson, we drafted Ed Reed," Newsome said. "I already can look down the stream. I know what the contract situation is, and, No. 1, I know what our salary cap is. I can look and say and know that we are not going to be able to retain some players.
"So, I don't have to worry. I worry about winning today, but I've got to also worry about winning tomorrow. And I've got to be able to balance those books every year."
01/21/13 - QB Joe Flacco completed 21 of 36 passes for 240 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, leading his team to a Super Bowl berth. Flacco has completed 51 of 93 passes for 853 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in three playoff games this season – improving his completion percentage each game. He's now the only quarterback in NFL history to go to the playoffs in each of his first five seasons – and win at least one game each time. His six road wins is already an NFL postseason record.
01/18/13 - QB Joe Flacco is 2-3 against the Patriots, passing for 1,271 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions.
01/13/13 - QB Joe Flacco is coming off a commanding performance.
After pushing Tom Brady to the brink last season, Flacco outdueled Denver Broncos star quarterback Peyton Manning to engineer a 38-35 double-overtime victory Saturday.
Flacco completed 18 of 34 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns for a 116.2 quarterback rating, while Manning was intercepted twice and fumbled twice, losing one.
"I don't know if I'm amazed, but it was pretty incredible," Flacco said of toppling the Broncos. "We overcame some things. We fought to the very end."
Flacco launched accurate, crisp spirals to connect on scoring throws of 59, 32 and 70 yards. His towering bomb behind flailing Broncos free safety Rahim Moore to wide receiver Jacoby Jones to send the game into overtime was a heave from the Ravens' 25-yard line.
"Joe has a cannon," Jones said of Flacco, who's in a contract year with negotiations on a potential blockbuster deal tabled until the offseason. "That's why we call him, 'Smokin' Joe.'"
Flacco made a big impression on his teammates in the Ravens' locker room, where he was saluted following a dramatic win that propels the Ravens to the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive year.
"He grew up," Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis said. "I told him, 'You're the General, lead us to victory, you lead us.' I've always been a Joe Flacco fan and always will be."
