Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco indicated he believes he can play into his 40s.

Flacco just completed his seventh season as the team's starter since being selected in the first round of the 2008 draft.

The 30-year-old has completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 25,531 yards with 148 touchdowns and 90 interceptions while leading Baltimore to a 72-40 record.

The Ravens have won one Super Bowl and reached the playoffs in six of the seven seasons in which Flacco has started at quarterback.

Last season the Ravens went 10-6 before falling to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs.

In March 2013, Flacco signed a contract extension worth $120.6 million over six years with $52 million in guaranteed money.

"I don’t feel any worse because of my age yet," Flacco said recently, according to's Jamison Hensley. "I’m not going to be 50 [years old] and playing. I hope I’m 40, but 50, no."

Current NFL starting quarterbacks approaching 40 years old include Drew Brees (36) of the New Orleans Saints, Tom Brady (37) of the New England Patriots and Peyton Manning (39) of the Denver Broncos.
