Ravens | Exclusive tag for Joe Flacco not a guarantee

The Baltimore Ravens may hesitate to place the exclusive franchise tag on impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco. The Ravens were $5 million over the league's $121 million salary cap at the close of business Friday, Feb. 8, and that figure doesn't include a dime for Flacco. Placing the exclusive tag would mean committing a $20 million guaranteed salary to Flacco in 2013, with another $24 million due in 2014 if Baltimore had to exercise a tag again next year. The team has also said it is not looking to restructure many deals and overspend in order to maintain the current nucleus.
