Joe Flacco will have a huge contract to go along with his Super Bowl ring.
The Baltimore Ravens reached a tentative agreement Friday on a new deal that would make the Super Bowl MVP the highest-paid player in NFL history.
If the deal is finalized, the veteran quarterback would receive in excess of $120 million over six years, according to a person close to the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract has not yet been signed. Flacco would earn more than the $20 million average salary Drew Brees receives with the New Orleans Saints.
Reaching agreement with Flacco before Monday’s 4 p.m. franchise deadline meant the Ravens are assured of retaining their starting quarterback and don’t have to take a salary cap hit of approximately $19.5 million.
