Ravens, Flacco Agree to New Deal: QB Becomes Highest-Paid Player in NFL History

That beeping sound you hear is the money truck backing into Joe Flacco‘s driveway.

The Ravens star quarterback has reportedly agreed to terms with the team – and his new deal is one for the record books.

Flacco and the Ravens have agreed to a six-year, $120.6 million contract that makes Joe Cool the highest-paid player in NFL history.

The two sides will iron out the language of the contract over the weekend and Flacco will put pen to paper in Baltimore on Monday.

Flacco completed 22-of-33 passes for 287 yards and three first-half TDs, earning himself Super Bowl XLVII MVP honors for leading Baltimore to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Drew Brees is currently the highest paid player in the league, making about $20 million per year.

Flacco knew this day would come.

“(Ravens owner) Steve Bisciotti told me that if this happens, I can go pound on his desk and really stick it to him. And I said, ‘that’s exactly what I’m going to do,’” Flacco said earlier this month.

Flacco, 28, threw 22 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions in the regular season this year. He has thrown for 17,633 yards, 102 touchdowns and 52 interceptions in 80 career games.

Flacco is the only QB to win a playoff game in each of his first five professional seasons.
