Draft Scout Joe Flacco News
08/23/16 - QB Joe Flacco is expected to receive his first taste of preseason action on Saturday night against the visiting Detroit Lions. Flacco has been sidelined from game action since tearing his ACL in November, but has been an active participant in practice throughout training camp. The 31-year-old has watched as Ryan Mallett, Josh Johnson and Jerrod Johnson have all taken snaps in the Baltimore Ravens' first two preseason contests. Flacco said last week that while the knee "feels great," he is still not 100 percent.
08/22/16 - -- QB Joe Flacco, who underwent season-ending knee last season, was held out for the second straight preseason game. Flacco could make his debut Saturday against the visiting Detroit Lions (7 p.m.) but the team has been noncommittal about him playing. Flacco said last week that while the knee "feels great," he is still not 100 percent. Backup Ryan Mallett made his second straight start against the Colts and completed six of eight passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. He had a 128.6 passer rating.
07/23/16 - QB Joe Flacco (knee) wasn't placed on the physically unable to perform list and will be available for the team's first full-squad practice on Thursday.
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.
