Ravens | Several ways to go with Joe Flacco
If the Baltimore Ravens do not sign impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco to a contract extension prior to the March 4 deadline to utilize the franchise tag, they're expected to prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent through either an exclusive franchise tender of $20.46 million or a non-exclusive franchise tender of $14.6 million. NFL rules governing non-exclusive franchise players state that the Ravens would be compensated with a pair of first-round draft picks if Flacco agreed to a contract with another team and they didn't exercise their right of first refusal and match the offer. Under the exclusive tag, Flacco wouldn't be allowed to negotiate with any other team.
