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. Jun 16 - 2:03 PM

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.

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.

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.
Feb 22 - 2:27 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley would be "surprised" if Joe Flacco's contract is not restructured before the start of free agency.

Flacco is set to count $28.55 million against the cap this season and $31.15 million next year. GM Ozzie Newsome has said his goal is to build the team without touching the deal, and Flacco's agent said he has yet to talk with the team about restructuring. Still, the Ravens have holes to fill and not much room under the cap to operate. Something will likely happen.

Feb 20 - 10:05 AM

In a radio interview, Joe Flacco (ACL, MCL) called his current cap number "not really realistic" and said he's open to restructuring his deal.

"I want to win so I want to do everything we can to get something done. I don’t know exactly what that is or exactly what’s that going to be because we haven’t talked about it yet," Flacco said. "I’m open to doing something. I want to be here for a while. I want to play football here. That’s what it’s all about." GM Ozzie Newsome has said the goal is to build a team without touching Flacco's $28.55 million cap hit, but that may be wishful thinking. Flacco added his rehab is going well and predicted he will be ready for Week 1.
Jan 21 - 9:08 AM

Joe Flacco (knee) said the offense is "closer than we've ever been" to being "really explosive."

"Obviously, there are going to be some things that we need to change and some things that we need to do better," Flacco said, "but I think there are a lot of good things, also." With OC Marc Trestman likely to return, Flacco will play under the same offensive coordinator for two years in a row for the first time in four seasons. That coupled with the hopefully healthy returns of Steve Smith, Breshad Perriman, Justin Forsett and Flacco himself should give the offense more firepower.

Joe Flacco will undergo ACL surgery on Tuesday, December 8.

Flacco tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee on November 22. The Ravens had to wait a couple of weeks for the procedure to be performed because Flacco needed to overcome swelling in his MCL. Although Flacco will be in a race to be ready for the start of training camp in 2016, we would be surprised if he's not all systems go for Week 1 of next season.
