Congratulations Ravens, You’re the Subject of Cockamamie Rumors
The Baltimore Ravens’ Super Bowl victory was accompanied by the typical round of festivities: late night television appearances, magazine covers, and a little extra love from the national media. Unfortunately, the media attention’s been short on glowing accolades and high on cockamamie rumors of impending salary cap doom.
Don’t get sucked into the vortex Ravens fans.
Peter King, a normally reputable NFL writer for SI.com, stirred the pot earlier this week with the ridiculous notion that Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco could go to the Cleveland Browns as a free agent. King laid out a flawed, though factually plausible, scenario in which the Browns could exact the ultimate revenge on the Ravens and steal the Super Bowl MVP quarterback. Yes, Flacco is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but the Ravens have publicly stated numerous times over the past few weeks that Flacco isn’t going anywhere.
