According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, even though quarterback Joe Flacco is heading into the final year of his current contract, the Baltimore Ravens and his reps aren’t “anywhere close to negotiating a long-term contract extension.”

With Flacco attending OTA’s and not staging a hold out, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ravens waited until the end of the season to actually get a deal done.  They may want to see how he bounces back from last season and how he deals with the pressure of playing for a new contract.
