The Baltimore Ravens drafted quarterback Joe Flacco in the first-round of the 2008 NFL Draft, and he's been the team's starter ever since. Flacco has posted pretty good numbers so far in his career, but overall the Ravens offense has been hit or miss in the passing game. The passing game wasn't a problem, though, in the AFC Championship game when the Ravens lost to the New England Patriots, and Flacco is looking to bank off of that to get a new long term deal.
Flacco is attending the Ravens voluntary practices while looking for a new deal. The two sides are not close on a new contract however, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.
Flacco is heading into the final year of his rookie contract, but the Ravens aren't anywhere close to negotiating a long-term contract extension with the franchise's all-time leading passer.
