Joe Flacco Becomes Highest-Paid Player In NFL History

One of the more interesting debates before the 2012 NFL season was whether or not the Baltimore Ravens should have locked up quarterback Joe Flacco into a new contract. Flacco decided against it and played out the season, which worked out tremendous to his benefit.

Now, after a Super Bowl victory and being awarded the game’s MVP award, Flacco has become the highest-paid player in the history of the National Football League. A story that was originally broken by Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Ravens have reached an agreement to sign Joe Flacco to a six-year, $120.6 million contract. Both sides will work on the official language of the contract throughout the week, but the deal is expected to be completed and officially announced by Monday.

Now that the Ravens have wrapped up Flacco’s deal, general manager Ozzie Newsome can focus on re-signing free agents Ed Reed, Paul Kruger and Bryant McKinnie. The funny story from all of this – apparently, Joe Flacco heard about his contract agreement just like most sports fans probably did – via the television.
