The player rep for free agent Joe Flacco tells Profootballtalk.com that there's "a long way to go" before Flacco's camp reaches a long-term deal with the Ravens.
Agent Joe Linta visited with Ravens brass Friday night in their first serious meeting since last August. Linta called it "a good start," but a deal is not imminent. The franchise-tag window closes two Mondays from now, so the sides still have time. The Ravens would prefer to avoid tagging Flacco. Linta is attempting to put pressure on the franchise by sending messages through the media.
