Take the money, and the draft picks, and strengthen the team in other areas. There's more than one way to build a winner.Today's NFL is built around the QB and the passing game. You want a cheaper alternative to Joe? I bet Kyle Boller would come back. I just don't understand how some folks are willing to go back to the days of trying to find a franchise QB when you have one available to you. This is what happens when you get a franchise QB. He makes bank in his second contract. It will be much easier to reload at other positions than at QB. It's not like Joe's salary will take up the whole cap and the rest of the team is people off the street. The Ravens execs will still be able to put quality talent around Joe.
He's looking to be the highest paid player in NFL history.You say that like it's some standard that is being broken.
Every big QB contract every few years is the biggest contract in history. And since the cap will be increased, that will continue to happen.Aaron Rodgers might top him this summer.
Aaron Rodgers might top him this summer.Might? If I'm Rodgers or his agent I'm praying that Flacco gets 20M a year.
