Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is heading into the Super Bowl with an expiring contract looming in the offseason. With a 15:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio over last seven games it looks like he can be making some bank very soon.

John Clayton stated on ESPN’s SportsCenter Special Monday that Flacco will likely target Drew Brees money in contract talks with the Ravens. Brees, of course, signed a five-year, $100 million contract with $40 million guaranteed last July.

“He’s now made a case for $20 million a year,” Clayton said. “And I think he’s gonna try to hold to that. Last season what I was hearing was he was asking for about $17 million. … But he was saying ‘okay fine, let me play this out.’ Now he’s in a position to make big money. And we’ll see if he can get over Drew Brees’ contract. I think he can.”

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen also agreed that the “$20 million figure is not unreachable” for Mr. Flacco.

His performance in the Super Bowl will likely be the deciding factor for a few million dollars. Let’s see how he performs on sport’s biggest stage.
