Ravens, Joe Flacco 'making progress' on new contract, according to Peter King

Evan Habeeb-US PRESSWIRE

The Ravens and Joe Flacco appear to be getting closer to reaching a new contract for the Super Bowl MVP. Here's a look at the most recent talks.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King notes the Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco appear to be making progress in their talks. Flacco's agent, Joe Linta, and club negotiator Pat Moriarty met for four hours on Friday night and were then seen together having dinner. This is a positive sign for Flacco's future in Baltimore. The two sides know a deal needs to be reached soon, as the free agency period begins in just two weeks.

Baltimore Beatdown: What is Flacco worth?

Last offseason, Flacco and Linta pulled back after contract talks ultimately broke down with the Ravens. Now, a year later, the two sides seem to be drawing closer to finally agreeing on a deal that will suit both sides. King doesn't believe the situation will reach a deteriorating point this time around.

There's no denying both sides want this to work. Flacco loves Baltimore, and he doesn't have any intention of leaving the team that drafted him in 2008. We should expect a new contract to be in place before free agency resumes.
