Draft Scout Joe Flacco News
04/19/16 - QB Joe Flacco is pleased with his progress after undergoing major knee surgery in December and is aiming to be ready for training camp in late July. Flacco underwent the operation in early December to repair both the ACL and MCL in his left knee. He said he has made "big improvements" over the past three weeks. Flacco is participating in the Ravens' offseason workout program and is able to engage in minor running and throw short passes. "I can do everything, pretty much," Flacco told reporters. "It's just a matter of how well I can do it and do I have a little limp here and there." Training camp opens in a little more than three months and stands as an artificial timetable for Flacco's return.
03/02/16 - QB Joe Flacco signed a three-year contract extension worth $66.4 million with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday (March 2).
Of the so-called new money, $44 million is guaranteed, including a $40 million signing bonus.
"This gives us the best chance over the next five, six years to win another Super Bowl," Flacco said Wednesday at a press conference announcing the deal.
Flacco was scheduled to enter the 2016 season with the NFL's second-highest cap figure at $28.6 million -- and a base salary of $18 million -- as part of the contract he signed in March 2013 on the heels of the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory.
"On his shoulders stand the success of this organization over the last eight years. His best football is ahead of him," general manager Ozzie Newsome said of the extension.
The move reportedly will save the Ravens nearly $9 million against the 2016 salary cap. The Ravens were 31st in cap space as of Tuesday morning when they officially used the franchise designation kicker Justin Tucker at a cost of $4.5 million.
Flacco is recovering from a torn ACL in November 2015 but Newsome said last week at the NFL Scouting Combine the Ravens expect him to be ready to go for the start of training camp. The Ravens enter the offseason with two quarterbacks, Flacco and Ryan Mallett, under contract.
Baltimore has two key free agents set to explore the market on March 9, including guard Kelechi Osemele, who started at left tackle with Eugene Monroe injured. Outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw is also an unrestricted free agent.
Including Tuesday's extension, the Ravens are tied to Flacco through 2021.
Flacco's original deal was a six-year, $120.6 million pact with $29 million as a signing bonus and $29 million guaranteed. That deal would have expired after the 2018 season, sending Flacco into free agency at age 34. He's now signed through age 36.
01/04/16 - QB Joe Flacco expects that he will have to renegotiate his contract with the team in the offseason.
Otherwise, Baltimore will have to absorb a $28.5 million cap hit. The Ravens need to spread some of that money around to upgrade several areas of the team.
"You know this day is going to come no matter what you do," said Flacco, who is entering the fourth year of his six-year deal. "There's no way of getting around a big cap number at some point, or a consistently big cap number. You know the first few years of my deal, the cap number wasn't very big, so you don't really have any other way around it but then to have a monster one at the end of it."
It is vital for the Ravens to renegotiate his contract because his salary balloons even higher to $31.1 in 2017. Flacco plans to let his agent and the Ravens' front office find a solution.
"You know it's coming unless the salary cap makes some kind of an enormous jump, but it's really kind of out of my control," he said.
Flacco was lost for the season when he tore his ACL and MCL on Nov. 22 against the St. Louis Rams. Over 10 games, Flacco threw for 2,791 with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. There is uncertainty whether he will be ready for the start of the 2016 season.
12/30/15 - QB Joe Flacco (knee) should be ready for 2016 training camp, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday.
Flacco tore his ACL and MCL on Nov. 22 against the St. Louis Rams. Flacco finished 10 games this season with 2,791 with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
"I guess you never say never, but everything I've been told is that he's going to be ready for training camp, 100 percent ready to go," Harbaugh said.
12/07/15 - QB Joe Flacco (knee) will have surgery Tuesday in Alabama. Flacco tore both his ACL and MCL against the Rams on Nov. 22. The Ravens are hopeful he will be ready for the start of the 2016 season, but that still remains an uncertainty.
