Joe Flacco's agent says his client is proving he is a top-five quarterback by his work in the playoffs, reports Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
"I've been the one putting him on a pedestal saying Joe's a top-five, elite quarterback, and he's proving it," agent Joe Linta said. "He's in the rarified air of having already won seven playoff games in his short career. He's really demonstrating that he's one of the top guys out there."
Perhaps, as Flacco sits one step away from the Super Bowl for the second straight season, again with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the way.
Flacco's rookie contract will expire after the season, and the sides have tabled talks until the season is over. If Flacco doesn't reach an agreement with the Ravens, he likely will be given the franchise tag, something that could wreak havoc with the Ravens' cap situation.
