Joe Flacco optimistic he’ll get an extension from the Ravens

With  quarterback Joe Flacco’s running out at the end of the season, he remains optimistic that he’ll get a long-term extension from the Ravens.

“Yeah, I always am [optimistic],” Flacco said, per the Baltimore Sun. “This is a great organization and you’re always upbeat about that.”

Flacco says he doesn’t even think about his contract situation.

“I’m sure it’s back there somewhere, but it’s not something I’ve really thought about or really considered,” Flacco said. “I knew it wasn’t going to be a topic of conversation during the season. I kind of made that clear in my own mind at the beginning of the season.”

Flacco will get an extension, but he won’t be paid like an elite quarterback since he hasn’t played great this year.
