Yep, Joe Flacco. The big-armed oaf. The doofy bridegroom. The guy whose dad said he was "dull" four times in two sentences five days before the Super Bowl. That guy. No, not the plumber who stripped the washers off your sink and left his wrench on your kitchen table—I mean the guy who backed up Tyler Palko at Pitt before transfering to Division I-AA Delaware and immediately leading them to a 5-6 record in the season he turned 21. That Joe Flacco is now likely to become the highest paid player in NFL history. He will, if a report from ESPN, which notes the contract isn't final, holds true, make "an average of $168,908 each day of the regular season for the next six years."
