The agent for Joe Flacco said he "really views" his client's new contract as a three-year pact.
Officially, the deal is for six years and $120.6 million. But in 2016, his cap number is $28.55 million, which will force a restructure. Even Flacco's agent expects to renegotiate at that point. "Depending on the salary cap, that's what will determine when we get to the fourth year, what they're going to have to do," said player rep Joe Linta. "We really viewed this as sort of a three-year deal to make sure the first three years Joe was paid accordingly with the top guys in the league."
