What's happening with Flacco deal?

With actual football or at least the preseason version of it being played, were not hearing nearly so much about progress on Joe Flaccos new contract. From one corner, the opinion is we wont be hearing about one anytime soon.

At Pro Football Talk, Mike Florio writes that Flacco wont have a new deal before the Ravens begin the regular season. Asked if there had been any recent movement, the quarterbacks agent, Joe Linta, told PFT: Not really. Joe is happy playing it out.

Linta added, however, that hed still talk to the Ravens at any time.

It could be this wait-and-see will end up costing the Ravens more money. Not that theyd be unhappy to see their quarterback enjoy more success, but if the offense uses the no-huddle mode weve seen in preseason, its entirely possible Flacco will put up better numbers this season than he has before. And if Flacco ranks near the top among quarterbacks statistically on top of helping take the team to the playoffs in each of his four NFL seasons hell rate a contract with plenty of zeroes.

Flaccos deal pays him 6.76 million this season. For him to reach top five status, which Linta has said he deserves, that would more than double.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.


Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

That’s my goal.”
