‘Gimmie $20 Million Or Imma Quit’: Joe Flacco To Aim For Drew Brees Money
Sports

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.

When I think of hired security guards, my mind tends to veer towards the overweight and slightly ineffective mall cops on segways. But Brazil apparently is a better place, where the subway security personnel look like models and (with those abs?!) could take me in for questioning anytime. Meet Guilherme Leao from Sao Paolo, recently […]

This 8th Grader Might Just Be ‘White Chocolate’ Reincarnated (Video)

If you’re a real NBA fan, then you are bound to be missing Jason Williams, aka “White Chocolate.” During his time with the Sacramento Kings, no one else had a knack for impressing such a strong sense of flair on the game as Williams. His handle was ridiculous, his passes equally so and, since he […]

These Cats Are Not Entertained By Magic Tricks (Video)

We’ve post a couple of videos in the past few weeks featuring dogs being mesmerized by magic. Because the trick involved a disappearing treat, many of the canines were a bit taken aback by the sleight of hand, but willing participants nonetheless. Penguin Magic decided to conduct a similar experiment, only using cats instead of […]
