Ravens | No hometown discount for Joe Flacco
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco will not be willing to give his team a hometown discount. Instead, any breaks given to the Ravens will be accomplished via the structure of the deal, according to Flacco's agent, Joe Linta. "I would say to you, of the other 52 players on the roster, how many of the other 52 (took less money)?" Linta said. "Do you work with (the Ravens) in terms of structure to help them out? Absolutely. But like I said, we all took risks. And I don't think anybody was gonna feel sorry for Joe if he turned down a contract in July and didn't have a great year and now was faced with less than what we're talking about." The goal in negotiations, according to Linta, is to "be creative with the contract to get what you want and structure so that it helps the Ravens and doesn't put them in a bad place cap-wise."
