Report: Ravens, Joe Flacco very close to an extension

According to Rotoworld.com, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported that the Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco are very close to getting an extension completed.

“Joe Flacco and the Ravens made ‘great progress’ toward an extension in camp, and ‘one phone call might be enough to get it done.’ La Canfora reports the monetary gap between the sides is ‘not great,’ so it’s still possible a deal could get done during the regular season. However, most signs still point toward Flacco playing out the final year of his rookie. If that’s the case, he’ll be a strong candidate for the franchise tag in the offseason. wrote Rotoworld.

There’s no doubt that Flacco will be in Baltimore for years to come, it’s just a matter of time before he gets the extension he’s been waiting for.
