Joe Flacco's agent does not believe that Tom Brady's salary cap-friendly contract extension will affect the Super Bowl MVP's discussions with the Baltimore Ravens.

Joe Flacco's agent has said that Tom Brady's contract extension will not have any impact on their talks with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Super Bowl champions are currently discussing a contract extension with their quarterback, with the 28-year-old understood to be seeking an annual salary of $20m (£13.2m).

Joe Linta told USA Today: "There's no impact whatsoever on what we're doing. It doesn't matter. It's an extension for cap purposes. And we don't know all the details at this point.

"The bottom line is, whether Brady took a pay cut or took $27m a year, it wouldn't have an impact on what we're doing. We've determined a number that we think is fair with respect for the Ravens' cap situation.

"Joe absolutely wants to work with the Ravens to ensure that they're not impacted cap-wise. Joe doesn't want to see anybody get cut as a result of this deal."

Brady signed a deal earlier this week worth $27m (£17.8m) over three years, giving the New England Patriots more space on their salary cap.
