The Baltimore Ravens first day of voluntary workouts kicked off at the team’s facility in Owings Mills on Monday morning.
And Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was present, participating in a throwing session, according to Aaron Wilson of The Carroll County Times.
Flacco, 27, remains in contract negotiations with the Ravens, but according to Wilson, the two sides aren’t close on an extension. Flacco, who is set to enter his fifth season with the team, is playing out the final year of his rookie contract.
Currently, the Ravens sit about $1.878 million under the NFL salary cap limit of $120.6 million for this season.
As for running back Ray Rice, he kept true to his word and did not show up for workouts. Rice, who’s in the same boat as Flacco, isn’t close on a contract extension with the team and has yet to sign his $7.742 million franchise tender.
Rice tweeted Monday morning: “To all college athletes getting ready to enter the NFL just remember the business side of the league is rough #fact”
