Talks with Flacco Seem Heading in the Right Direction

It’s been documented already that new Ravens rookie Joe Flacco is going to need every bit of training camp if he wants to wrestle the starting job away from either Kyle Boller or Troy Smith to start the season.  That’s why the news from the Carroll County Times about Flacco’s contract talks is a positive sign for a team that is looking for a good start to camp with a new coach.

The paper is reporting that the Ravens have already spoken to Flacco’s agent four times, and that they want to make sure to get the #1 pick in camp on time when the team reports on July 21st in Westminster.  Flacco has already made it known that he wants to make sure to get in camp on time, and has been confident from the word go that the five-year deal that the Ravens are offering him will be taken care of by the start of camp.

    Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco better get his behind signed, sealed and delivered asap unless his agent wants to keep the Brett Favre to Baltimore rumors alive. The focus of the Ravens offseason has been the offensive line as well as QB position. Under new HC John Harbaugh, the Ravens have installed Jared Gaither at LT as replacement for Jonathan Ogden. Wow! Now that Brett Favre’s name has been speculated as a trade possibility (probably for a 2009 second-day draft choice like Steve McNair), the Ravens might be rethinking their Oline makeup. Instead of giving the starting LT job to an inexperienced second-year player in Gaither to protect the 39-year old QB’s blind side, why not start lineman Adam Terry at LT, Ben Grubbs at LG, Jason Brown at OC, Chris Chester at RG and Marshall Yanda at RT. This configuration is young with each lineman having less than five years experience but talented with all have earned extensive playing time early in their careers. This focus on the Oline would be a top priority regardless of who the QB was but really becomes critical if his name is Favre.
