Wednesday February 15th, 2012

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.
