Ravens meet with Joe Flacco’s agent about contract

The Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco’s agent are schedule to meet during the NFL combine in Indianapolis according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan.

Flacco’s salary-cap number is $28.55 million, which is the third-highest in the NFL this season. It ranks behind only New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees ($30 million) and Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh ($28.6 million).

Baltimore is definitely looking to create some cap space before free agency begins March 9. The Ravens currently have the second-least amount of cap space in the entire league and missed the playoffs last season.

General Manager Ozzie Newsome is expected to put the franchise tag on kickerJustin Tucker ($4.5 million) and a second-round tender on restricted free agent Kamar Aiken ($2.5 million). If Flacco doesn’t redo his contract and the Ravens follow through with those moves, they are left with zero cap space.

Flacco, 31, is scheduled make $58.6 million over the final three years of the six-year, $120.6 million contract he signed in March 2013.
