OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Joe Flacco understands the lofty expectations that come with a Super Bowl ring and a new $120.1 million contract.
And he doesn't care.
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.
