Flacco record deal, Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens reached a tentative agreement Friday on a new contract that would make the Super Bowl MVP the highest-paid player in NFL history.
If the deal is finalized, the veteran quarterback would receive in excess of $120 million over six years, according to a person close to the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract has not yet been signed.
Flacco would earn more than the $20 million average salary Drew Brees receives with the New Orleans Saints.
Flacco played out his rookie contract last season for $6.76 million and led Baltimore to the NFL championship.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said the sides have settled on the parameters of the deal, but still have some language and details to work out.
Fox Sports first reported the new deal.
Reaching agreement with Flacco before Monday's 4 p.m. franchise deadline means the Ravens are assured of retaining their starting quarterback and don't have to take a salary cap hit of approximately $19.5 million.
