OWINGS MILLS, Md. – 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.
