The Baltimore Ravens are interested in signing quarterback Joe Flacco to a long-term extension, according to NFL.com.
The 27-year-old’s contract expires following the 2012 season, however the Ravens would like to lock him up this offseason. The quarterback and the team will reportedly talk about a potential deal next week during the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, NFL.com reports.
Flacco helped lead the Ravens to their second consecutive 12-4 season in 2011. This winter they fell just one game shy of reaching the Super Bowl after they lost 23-20 to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Overall Flacco has posted a 44-20 career record as the Ravens starter. The Ravens originally drafted Flacco 18th overall in the 2008 NFL draft out of the University of Delaware.
