Ravens Optimistic Flacco Deal Will Get Done

Jul 18, 2012 3:33 PM EST

The Ravens are optimistic they can reach a contract extension with Joe Flacco by the time training camp opens next week, according to sources.

A first-round pick in 2008, Flacco has one year left on his rookie deal, but has said throughout the offseason that he is not concerned about his contract.

"Joe is very, very excited for the season," Joe Linta told the Carroll County Times. "He's really adamant about getting the Ravens to the next step. The contract at this point is secondary to that goal. Joe has the attitude that he'll earn it."
