Joe Flacco is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the off-season, and set yesterday to prove to the pundits that he can win big playoff games.
Flacco showed some guts yesterday and made huge throws while out playing future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning on his home field.
Flacco and the Ravens will talk contract after the season, but as Flacco’s agent Joe Linta told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, he is worth every elite dime he is going to seek.
“He’s a top-five guy, if not better. … If you don’t think that’s an elite guy, then you’re crazy.”
“The guy has won 54 (regular-season) games; (the) guy is eventually going to get respect,” Linta said. “The great thing about Joe is he doesn’t care.”
Flacco is about to get paid.
