While the Ravens and Joe Flacco continue to finalize contract negotiations, inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe remains humble behind the curtains for his process to start.
According to The Baltimore Sun, agent Hadley Engelhard acknowledged that the team had to re-sign Flacco.
“They’re obviously focusing on the short-term on the Flacco issue first,” Engelhard said. “The next focal point is Dannell. Hopefully, it will work out. We plan on meeting many, many times between now and free agency.”
Ellerbe said in his interview with WNST-AM, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, “I’m looking forward to making the best out of everything. The team that I play for, the money that I get, the situation I’m going into and all of that plays into it. I already have a Super Bowl. I want to be in Baltimore. My heart is in Baltimore, I love Baltimore, I love the fans, I love talking to y’all guys and I know I’m not going to talk to y’all somewhere else.”
With Ray Lewis at ESPN, expect Ellerbe’s tenure with the Ravens to stretch a few more seasons.
