Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti admits that quarterback Joe Flacco struggled during the 2013 season just months after being handed a lucrative contract by the club.

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti has admitted that quarterback Joe Flacco had a poor 2013 season but he expects him to bounce back in the next campaign.

Flacco saw his form dip with mostly a new cast of receivers, just months after guiding his team to their second Super Bowl win and being handed a six-year $120m (£72m) contract.

Bisciotti told the club's official website: "I think Joe deserves the benefit of the doubt. We saw the progression for five years. He has a down year, he throws a lot of picks. But Joe historically didn't throw a lot of picks.

"He's dealing with Marlon Brown and Pitta is gone and Anquan [Boldin] is gone. He's got Dallas Clark and Brandon Stokley. With all brand new targets, that's going to happen. I certainly look at last year as an aberration. I expect to see great things from Joe."

Flacco threw for 3,912 yards along with 19 touchdowns to 22 interceptions last season.
