Memo to Joe: Spread the wealth

Anquan BoldinJoe Flacco

This business about the Ravens' salary cap is way beyond my comprehension ("Raven's tight salary cap could squeeze out playoff star Anquan Boldin if he doesn't accept less pay," March 10). But I know one thing: The more money one player receives, the less there is for the others.

So I have a suggestion for Joe Flacco and his agent: Now that their record salary deal assures Mr. Flacco of the "respect I deserve," perhaps he can see fit to donate some of his millions to the team salary pool in order to help retain the many players who were absolutely key to the Ravens' victories in the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

To ask players like Anquan Boldin to take a cut in pay after what he and others did for the team defies all logic and fairness.
