What matters to Super Bowl MVP and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not how long his status as the highest paid NFL player lasts, but the fact that the Ravens were willing and able to pay him that much in the first place. Flacco has just signed his new contract on Monday, which states that he is worth $120.6 million dollars over six years. As a first round pick in 2008 out of the University of Delaware, Flacco is the first starting quarter back in NFL history to make the playoffs in each of his first five seasons. He has led the Ravens to nine wins over that time span, tying Tom Brady for most wins in the first five years of his career.
This past postseason, Flacco threw 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions. He also led his team to a 34-31 Super Bowl victory over San Francisco. These stats and many more made the Ravens decide to pay him more than any other of the great quarterbacks of this era, including Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and Drew Breese. So, is he worth it?
Flacco stated that he knows that he will not be the highest paid for long. Someone else will come up soon and take over that title. But that is not what is important to him. It is being respected by his organization that matters, and he now knows he is. Flacco is exactly what the Ravens have needed in the past. Now that they have him and he has turned into the player he is, they are not going to just let him go without a fight.
