Flacco's agent: He should be the highest paid QB

Recommended Posts

The player rep for free agent Joe Flacco told CNBC on Tuesday that his client deserves to be the NFL's highest paid quarterback.

Ergo, the highest paid player. "When you do a contract of this magnitude, you look at what is the player's body of work presently," said agent Joe Linta. "And what are the expectations going forward over the next four, five or six years. Joe wins on both accounts." It's no longer news that Flacco is looking to cash in with a monster deal, but Linta's comments suggest negotiations will be no less contentious than they were between the Saints and Drew Brees last year. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti has already said he expects Flacco's new deal to "probably cost (Baltimore) a couple players."

Matt Ryan could demand more, or the same amount as Flacco. This is going to be fun!

Whoa there cowboy. He shouldn't be the best paid guy. Flacco is barely hitting elite status and he hasn't proved he can do this every single year. Be consistent I mean, not win a super bowl. Although that is the point of the league. I agree that he should be paid handsomely but the top dog? Yeah, no.

JT better sell his baseball cards to Pawn Stars when Cam's time comes. Boogie will want the big dolla.

BB should go fug off and eat a dick.

Yeah, this will get ugly fast, not sure how much leveraging power Ravens have, after all, he just won a SB.

Problem, JTG? Was this supposed to be a trash Flacco and Matty thread? My bad. I was actually giving Cam props.

No, it was actually a victory party thread for Ryan & Flacco.

I see.

How's this? Flacco and Ryan are pretty decent QBs! Whoo! Their agents are trying to get them money as any agent would do! Whoo! Yay, football!

Just means Cam deserves even more when time comes

Not until a winning season, or the playoffs, he won't.

he's good... but he's not THAT good.

I would play some serious hardball if I were the Ravens on this one. Franchise his ass this year, make him prove that he deserves the money, then pay him what he earns next year.

franchising him would blow up their cap.

making him the highest paid player and spreading it out over the years is actually the best option.

The Ravens are screwed either way. They are going to have to pay his average ass top dollar and watch him slump for the next few years.

Yeah. This is all going to be fun until Cam's contract is up. These guys along with the Brees contract are driving up the market.

We will pay Cam whatever it takes I'm sure, but I am anxious to see how much that is going to be.
