Joe Flacco’s agent on $120.6 million record-setting deal: ‘I do my job’
< Previous Page
"He said, ‘sure,’ " Linta recalled. "He thought I was one big, Mr. Sleazy Agent. But when I told him that, it was based on film study. I’m not a good liar."
Linta thought the Ravens would re-sign Flacco in August, but the quarterback rejected the team’s final offer while seeking a larger payday.
"I’m not as much of a gambler as he is," Linta said. "He wanted to bet on himself."
In the end, Flacco has definitely hit the jackpot.
