Chris Miller visits with Jameel McClain at the Wizards game
When news broke that Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens agreed in principle to a new six-year, $120 million contract many of Flacco's teammates took to Twitter to congratulate the Super Bowl MVP quarterback.
Ray Rice, Flacco's partner in the backfield and a frequent supporter of the quarterback, might have had the best line for Flacco. Rice made it clear the QB would be on the hook for some meals in the future.
Dinner and a few nights on Joe Flacco when we get back well deserved #Ravens— Ray Rice (@RayRice27) March 2, 2013
Wide reciever Torrey Smith was not to be outdone in the world of social media. Smith offered congratulations to Flacco, but also shared a doctored up photo of the soon-to-be very rich pocket passer.
Nice Joseph!!! Well deserved...Now lets see how everything else plays out instagr.am/p/WVgHEZk-fd/— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) March 2, 2013
It wasn't only the skill players that wished Flacco well. Vetern offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie kept it simple.
Big S/O & Congrats 2 @teamflacco.— Bryant Mckinnie (@BryantMckinnie) March 2, 2013
Flacco's contract made waves beyond just his Ravens teammates. ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell, as he is wont to do, broke down what Flacco's new contract means on a daily basis.
