While the Buffalo Bills still have yet to draft their franchise qb, the Baltimore Ravens signed their franchise guy to the richest contract in NFL history.
The Ravens agreed to terms with Flacco on a six-year deal worth $120.6 million Friday night. A week ago Tom Brady agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract extension with the Pats, a deal that will keep him with New England through the 2017 season. Brady will receive 57 million guaranteed over the next the five years.
Flacco, who could of became a free agent on March 12th, get $52 mill guaranteed. Since being selected in the first round of the 2008 draft, Flacco has started every game of his five-year career.
It's clear that Flacco is not Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers, but he has nine playoff wins. Since 2008, no other qb has more victories during that time with 63.
This past postseason Flacco tossed 11 touchdowns and zero picks while guiding the Ravens to a super bowl title. The Deleware product picked a great time to be great, a contract year.
