Joe Flacco, Ravens agree to 6-year deal worth $120.6M

Earlier tonight, it was reported by Jay Glazer that the Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco had agreed to a contract extension.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $120.6 million over six years, which makes Flacco the NFL's highest-paid player.

While he's clearly not the "best" quarterback in the NFL, he has more total wins (playoffs and regular season) than any other quarterback since he entered the league. Coincidentally, Atlanta's Matt Ryan (54) is the only player with more regular-season wins than Flacco (52) since 2008. Both Ryan and Flacco were drafted in the first round in 2008.

Not only has Flacco won 52 regular-season games, the Ravens have advanced to the postseason in all five of his NFL seasons and he has compiled a 9-4 record in the playoffs.

Of course, Flacco, the Super Bowl XLVII MVP, played his best at the most crucial time as he posted a 11:0 touchdown-to-interception this postseason. Since 2010, Flacco has thrown 18 touchdowns and only two interceptions in the playoffs.

In my early 2013 fantasy football rankings, Flacco is my 15th-ranked quarterback.
