Ok...So everyone knows Joe Flacco will be a free agent at the end of the season and Flacco will be franchised if they cannot come to an agreement on a long term contract before free agency begins. This is where it could get interesting for us, Joe Flacco hasn't missed a game in his NFL career, he's 28 yr's old and a proven winner. Here is the million dollar question...If indeed Flacco is franchised, should the Bills sign Joe Flacco to a massive contract in hopes that Baltimore simply cannot match our offer?
This would give us a franchise QB entering his prime, sure, we would have to send our #8 overall and next years 1st round draft choice but in my opinion that is a small price to pay for a young franchise QB who is just heading into his prime and is only going to get better. We are already going to lose our #8 pick drafting a QB that is a roll of the dice, and a huge risk. With Flacco, we would be getting a known commodity and well worth the money and draft choice to solidify the QB position for the next 6-7 years.
If this has been talked about here, I very sorry, I haven't seen any posts about this idea...What are your thought, could this work??
It would seem that at the very least, this would force Baltimore's hand and would likely cost them valuable flexibility to sign other free agents on their own team.
