Just saw this posted and I thought you all might like to take a look. I haven't fully read through it, so I'll add my comments in after.

From a Salary Cap perspective, a long-term deal is always the most Cap friendly option. On a long-term deal, the 1st year Cap number is generally the lowest Cap number of the contract, and with a relatively tight Cap, a new deal would allow the Ravens to allocate whatever other Cap Space they have to address other areas of need. Under a long-term deal, depending on the structure of the contract, Flacco’s 2013 Cap number would likely be in the $5-7M range.


I like the sounds of keeping his cap low but haven't finished reading this yet

I don't understand how they can keep it as low as that if they are going to be giving him a signing bonus probably at least in the $40m range. $40m/5 = $8m cap hit for the bonus alone.

Maybe they lower the signing bonus but throw in guaranteed money elseswhere - say an option bonus next year, some guaranteed base salary etc

While I'm a fan of the option bonus and guaranteed salary... I'm not a fan of their idea of having Flacco only make $7/8m in 2013... that would be an incredibly short sited deal. That would cripple us further into the future.

My guess is that the author meant the 1st year salary,
