Joe Flacco plays Mega Millions lottery just like everyone else

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Joe Flacco has a lot of money, having signed a blockbuster $120 million deal this past offseason after leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory. But that isn't going to stop him from trying to get more.

And Flacco wants this payday the easy way, buying some lottery tickets before the Mega Millions jackpot was announced last week. (Spoiler: He didn't win.)

“It's a lot of money, man,” Flacco said. “Since I've been 18 years old, I've always played the lottery when it gets up to a couple $100 million. It's just for fun.”

But the best was Flacco's response to the team's official website when asked what he would do if he won the $600-plus million.

“Not tell anybody."
