Joe Flacco reaches new deal with Ravens

Saturday March 2nd, 2013

FOXSports' Jay Glazer reported that the Ravens and Joe Flacco have reached a deal to keep the Super Bowl MVP from becoming a free agent.

Flacco is expect to re-sign Monday with Baltimore. After leading the team to a 34-31 Super Bowl victory against the 49ers, speculation began that Flacco would receive a contract to make him the highest paid quarterback in NFL history. Terms of the deal are not yet available. The Ravens official Twitter also announced that there is an agreement clause, meaning the deal is not official yet.

With Flacco secure, the Ravens can focus their attention on other potential free agents, including Ed Reed, Paul Kruger and Bryant McKinnie.
