NEW YORK (AP) -- Joe Flacco's victory tour Monday included a stop in New York to appear on CBS' "Late Show" with David Letterman.

The quarterback led the Ravens to a 34-31 victory against the San Francisco 49ers">49ers on Sunday in the Super Bowl at New Orleans. Flacco completed a remarkable postseason run with 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in four games. He is about to become a free agent.

Letterman asked the Super Bowl MVP if he had spoken to team owner Steve Bisciotti about a new contract.

"Well, you know, actually, I only talked to him a little bit before this game, but before the New England game, you know, he just came up to me and said, `Listen, this is our time, and go get `em. We have all the faith in you, and this is going to be your team for a long time,"' Flacco said.

The "Late Show" will air Monday night.

Flacco said he turned down an extension offer from the Ravens last year.

"Well ... when I wasn't signing what they wanted me to sign, (Bisciotti) said, `Listen, when the time comes, I mean, you come and beat on my desk,' and I said, `All right, I'll take you up on that,' and I think the time has come."
