Joe Flacco avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

Just as expected. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year, but his recovery progressed ahead of schedule and he resumed throwing without restrictions after OTAs. "He looks 100 percent to me," Kamar Aiken observed earlier this month. "Looks the exact same." Flacco isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he has a favorable early-season schedule and last year's Ravens led the NFL in pass attempts. Flacco is a sneaky bet to finish this year as a low-end QB1.

Joe Flacco (ACL) is throwing without restrictions.

Flacco was held out of OTAs, but has been working with WR Kamar Aiken the last couple weeks. "He looks 100 percent to me," Aiken said. "Looks the exact same." Aiken’s comments fall in line with previous reports. Flacco should be full-go for the start of training camp.
Jul 20 - 7:04 PM

Joe Flacco (ACL) reiterated he plans to participate in the first practice of training camp.

Flacco said the same thing in June, and nothing has happened in the interim to change his mind. The Ravens might try to take it slow with their franchise quarterback right out of the gate, but it now looks like he will see plenty of snaps in the preseason. He should easily be 100 percent before Week 1.

Joe Flacco (ACL) expects to be ready for the "first day" of training camp.

Flacco continues to project confidence in his recovery, and it now appears he could avoid the active/PUP list to begin camp. Barring a setback, Flacco should see plenty of preseason action as he tries to knock off the rust of a major injury.

Joe Flacco (knee) remains on track for training camp.

Flacco is expected to miss all of OTAs/minicamp. His Week 1 status isn’t in doubt, but Flacco's inability to participate in pre-camp workouts will limit his practice reps with offseason additions Mike Wallace and Ben Watson.
Jun 10 - 8:16 PM

Joe Flacco (knee) said he has resumed running.

He has yet to begin throwing in earnest, but he said that should come in the near future. Flacco expects to be ready by the time training camp opens, but he will likely be babied through the preseason. He should be a full-go by Week 1.

Joe Flacco said there's no timetable for his return from knee surgery but acknowledged he's "getting better and better each week."

Flacco wasn't able to play in Torrey Smith's charity basketball game this weekend but he felt good enough to take a few warmup shots. He's making good progress in his recovery from knee surgery and expects to be ready by the time training camp opens. Flacco hasn't stopped talking about Mike Wallace this offseason and it will be interesting to see how he meshes with his new deep threat.
Apr 3 - 10:01 AM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Joe Flacco (knee) should be ready for training camp.

Flacco tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee on November 22. Even if he is "ready" for camp, the Ravens will almost certainly take it slow with their franchise quarterback. Flacco should be all systems go by Week 1.

Ravens signed QB Joe Flacco to a three-year, $66.4 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes a whopping $40 million signing bonus, bypassing Drew Brees' $37 million signing bonus for the largest in NFL history. The Ravens had to do something about Flacco's gargantuan costs over the next two years, so it was necessary to extend his deal three more seasons in order to alleviate Flacco's $28.55 million and $31.15 million cap hits in 2016 and 2017. Flacco is now under contract through his age-36 season. The move gives GM Ozzie Newsome breathing room for free agency and could pave the way for Baltimore to re-sign G/T Kelechi Osemele to a big deal.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Ravens and Joe Flacco could agree to a new deal by the end of the week.

The Baltimore Sun reported the two sides were "close" on Friday, and that remained the case through meetings over the weekend. They will meet again at the Combine Monday. Baltimore is interested in extending Flacco's deal in order to lower his $28.55 million cap hit this season and $31.15 million hit in 2017. The two sides should work something out before free agency begins March 9.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports Joe Flacco and the Ravens are "close" to agreeing on a new deal.

The two sides made some progress Friday and are expected to meet again over the weekend. The Ravens want to restructure Flacco's deal to lower his gargantuan $28.55 million cap number this season as well as his even crazier $31.15 million hit in 2017. The best way to accomplish those goals is a long-term extension. Flacco is currently under contract through 2018.
Feb 27 - 11:48 AM

The Ravens have made progress in contract negotiations with Joe Flacco but no deal is imminent, according to ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley.

The Ravens are working on a contract restructure that will lower Flacco's absurd $28.55 million cap hit for next season. At the moment, only the Patriots and Bills have less cap room than Baltimore. We're guessing the two sides will reach an agreement before free agency starts on March 9.
Feb 26 - 1:29 PM

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome again said the team can work around Joe Flacco's (knee) contract.

"Just as I stated at the end-of-season press conference, we are in a position that we can be very active in free agency without having to get something done with Joe," Newsome said. The Ravens are short on cap space, and Flacco is set to count $28.55 million against the cap. Restructuring his deal would be the easiest way to create some flexibility, but it would likely have consequences down the road. The Ravens are expected to meet with Flacco's agent at the Combine. Despite Newsome's assertions, it is likely something gets done.

Joe Flacco's agent expects to meet with the Ravens at the Combine to discuss restructuring Flacco's contract.

Flacco has three seasons left on his six-year, $120.6 million deal, but his cap numbers are skyrocketing. His current 2016 number is $28.55 million, and it soars past $30 million in 2017. The only real way for the Ravens to get relief would be to hammer out an extension, as converting a big chunk of Flacco's $18 million 2016 salary into a bonus would simply inflate his 2017 number even more.
