Flacco says he won't be feeling any extra pressure to perform well this season after he guided the Baltimore Ravens to a world championship and received what was, at the time, the richest contract in NFL history.

After practicing with injured veterans and rookies on Tuesday, Flacco said, ``I can't really complain at this point. We won last year, I have a lot of money - or I'm going to get a lot of money - and we're going to win football games. That's the way it is around here.''
Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP after guiding the Ravens to a 34-31 win over San Francisco.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Ravens are currently 22/1 long shots to win the 2014 Super Bowl, while the Broncos and 49ers are 6/1 co-favorites, respectively. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are 17/2 to win next year's NFL title, while the Patriots are 9/1.
