That would have been interesting for sure. Similar question: Had the Ravens not made the playoffs this year, would they have re-signed Flacco at all?

I think they would have, but obviously he wouldn't have gotten the contract he has now.

Anquan Boldin reportedly rejects pay cut from Ravens

Quote:
The Baltimore Ravens have succeeded in raising Anquan Boldin's competitive ire.

A month ago, Boldin was prepared to retire if his career ever reached the point where he would have to play for another team. Now that the Ravens have given the veteran an ultimatum to take either a pay cut or his walking papers, Boldin is forcing their hand.

Rosenthal: Top 85 free agents
This year's free-agent crop lacks star power, but provides immense depth. Gregg Rosenthal ranks available players. More ...
Boldin has rejected a proposal by the team to reduce his 2013 salary without an extension, USA Today reported, and is preparing to hit the open market as a free agent. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport is told it's a "cash issue" as opposed to a cap issue.

"Once he's decided, you might as well try to move the Rock of Gibraltar," a person with knowledge of the negotiations told USA Today.

Asked about Boldin's retirement comments, the person explained, "I think he was trying to express loyalty to them. I know that he's hoping to stay with them, but he's willing to go someplace else."

Coming off a dominant postseason run with 22 receptions for 380 yards and four touchdowns as Joe Flacco's go-to receiver in clutch situations, Boldin still has plenty to offer a contender. If the Ravens do cut him loose, the 32-year-old would fall in alongside Wes Welker in the second tier of free-agent wide receivers behind Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings.

Ravens let him go and then only Jones/Smith will be left behind to bail Flacco out. That 25 million contract is going to look worse and worse if they don't get him some receiving help. 2

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

So if his biggest misstep is overpaying a QB that's hasn't made a Pro Bowl, that's just irony. If there's anyone that can dig us out of a contract Flacchole, it's Ozzie with the Draft.

Then again, I could just post random Ravens gifs like Pryme Tyme and call for a repeat. So stop red repping me PT, this thread deserves a better class of criminal.
Why did you quote me? Did you want to get into a debate? I'm not slandering Flacco or the contract b/c I love it. All I said is he outsmarted himself which he did.

They'll restructure around 2016 if the article in the Sun is accurate. I should have read it, but I skimmed it seeing how it dealt with stuff I dislike.

I love how in Flacco's press conference he says money wasn't an issue in the beginning of it, then later on he says, "As a QB you are expected to make a certain amount of money." Just stfu Flacco.

I know I said earlier players should learn how to take pay cuts, but I take that back and appreciate Boldin for saying no. My new stance is to say no pay cuts until it affects the team I support again.

Brady is such a class act and a real leader. Takes a paycut so his team can have more cap space.

Flacco kills his team's cap space and they have to cut some of their best players.

re: NFL Offseason: DRAFT TODAY (and all through the weekend)

It obviously doesn't matter b/c you can draft them all back with 17 first rounders and 50 pro bowlers in one draft. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post that.

I'm going to be back in the thread next season as I can't pass up the opportunity to slander William Gay. The only thing I look forward to is a healthy DeCastro which requires him not playing next to Gilbert the walking plague.

And I can't stand Brady, but that was classy as hell what he did for his team. Not too many players would do that, especially the drop he took.

Could the fact that his wife is richer than he is play a part in this? I think so.
