The Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco's agent plan to meet this weekend in their first attempt to reach a new contract for the Super Bowl MVP.
Joe Linta will be in Indianapolis at the NFL's scouting combine for the first negotiations since August. After the team and Flacco couldn't agree on an extension or a new deal last summer, Flacco played out the final year of his rookie contract - and struck it big.
He led the Ravens to the AFC North title, then to playoff victories over Indianapolis, Denver and New England before beating San Francisco in the Super Bowl. Flacco had 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in the postseason.
Flacco made less than $7 million in 2012, and even if the Ravens franchise him, he would at least double that salary for next season.
