Joe Flacco isn’t denying that it’s crucial for the Ravens to restructure his contract this offseason. Speaking on WBAL radio Thursday morning, Flacco repeated that he was open to restructuring his $28.55 million cap number for next season.
“I want to win so I want to do everything we can to get something done,” Flacco told WBAL. “I don’t know exactly what that is or exactly what that’s going to be because we haven’t talked about it yet. I know that’s a huge number, so it’s not really realistic. I’m open to doing something. I want to be here for a while. I want to play football here. That’s what it’s all about.”
Flacco was on the radio to promote the Jan. 30 Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park to promote Special Olympics Maryland. However, the subject of his contract naturally came up.
Flacco also said his rehab from knee surgery was going well, but that there was no timetable for his recovery. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL on Nov. 22, and his goal is to be ready by the start of training camp in July.
“I honestly have no timetable is for this type of thing,” Flacco said. “I know I’m doing very well right now and I feel very good. I’m just taking it day by day. I don’t want to overdo anything and try to do anything too early, so I force myself into some kind of setback. But I’m coming along great. I don’t think there’s any way I’m not going to be out there ready to go right away.”
