The Ravens paced a first round tender on Lardarius Webb and a second round tender on Dannell Ellerbe on Monday which put them at an estimated $8 million under the salary cap. Not a whole lot flexibility as the Ravens would like to also retain Jameel McClain.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times says that the Ravens are preparing for a long negotiation with Joe Flacco. “The Ravens are saving room for a potential blockbuster contract extension for quarterback Joe Flacco that may take several months to negotiate,” Wilson tweeted.
A blockbuster extension huh? One like Mark Sanchez’s five-year, $58.25 million extension?
Is that really a good idea for the Ravens right now? He’s a free agent after this season. Would it be better for the Ravens to hold off on that “blockbuster” deal?
