I am glad the Ravens finally reached a new deal with quarterback Joe Flacco. There are some who will criticize the agreement, saying that Flacco doesn’t deserve to be paid elite money, and I partially agree.
He isn’t elite, but he is a good quarterback in a league filled with bad ones. To me, the Ravens had to sign him to this new extension which will make him a Ravens until 2021 because of the six-year contract he signed with the team in 2013.
I didn’t agree with that deal either, but at the time the Ravens had to pay Flacco the money because he had just won a Super Bowl. The latest agreement is just the after-effect of the previous one.
