Flacco was asking for $17 Million per year last season, and Baltimore balked at that amount, because he hadn’t earned it with his inconsistent play. He’s played well enough in the 2nd half to merit discussion at that $17 Million number…especially if he sees it through and wins the Super Bowl.
Even if this talk from the media about $20 Million per is coming from the Flacco camp, and not just speculation, that is their starting point for negotiation, not the name inked on a contract. I would imaging when all is said and done, that the finished deal will be somewhere between $15 and $18 million per.

In my mind there's a few types of people that would want to get paid the absolute most, the best player, greedy people and narcissists. Meaning, if I'm Joe and my choices are: go for $20 mil. and run for my life because of bad O-linemen, have average receivers, and/or a mediocre defense. OR take $15 mil. and have a better team to get me back to the dance... I'm taking the $15. After all, the goal is to win Super Bowls and cement your legacy among the best. Not take all the money and play for 5th place every year.

Flacco shut the critics up this year... he proved 100% beyond a reasonable doubt that he's the QB for this team going forward.
The Ravens have a tendency of holding on to players until the end of their contract to make sure they're the right guy. Often times it will cost them extra dough (see McAlister, Suggs, and soon to be Flacco), but I think they take the safer approach rather than sink a ton of money in a bust. The good thing is that we haven't really seen the Ravens sink a ton of money in a loser, so that's a positive of this theory, as long as the cap management continues well.I tend to agree with what was said about Flacco being in the $15-18 million range. If he wins the Superbowl, he could be more in the $18-19 million range. I'm not worried, they'll figure something out long-term, very little chance he'd ever hit the open market.
