Joe Linta, the agent for Joe Flacco, was pleased with the first day of talks with team officials about a potential extension for the quarterback who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Linta maintained that the point of the meeting was not to start negotiating the contractual terms, but to make sure that both sides were on the same page with their interest in getting a deal done.
“We just wanted to make sure that he was really as valued as much as we thought he was,” Linta said. "It was very clear to me that everybody in their organization from the owner on down feels that way and is committed to him as their franchise quarterback. This was just confirmation for us.”
