Once the news broke last Friday that Joe Flacco and Baltimore Ravens had agreed on a new contract that will pay him $120 million over six years, I immediately was interested in finding out how much of his contract is guaranteed.

According to NFL.com, Flacco will earn $52 million in guaranteed money, which is less than the $60 million guaranteed that Drew Brees got from the Saints last season.

Either way, at the end of the day, Flacco is the highest paid player in NFL history.
