Joe Flacco has agreed to a new contract with the Baltimore Ravens which will make him the highest paid player in the NFL.

The Baltimore Ravens have finalised the terms of Joe Flacco's new contract with the organisation.

The Super Bowl champions have agreed to make the quarterback the highest-paid player in the NFL, offering him a deal worth $120.6m (£80.3m) over six years.

Head coach John Harbaugh told NFL.com: "Just very happy for Joe, his family, and also for Ravens fans. He always been our QB. So to me, this is very fitting."

The 28-year-old is still to agree the marketing aspect of the contract, but it is expected that Flacco will sign the contract later today.

The agreement eclipses the five-year, $100m (£66.6m) contract signed by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees last year.
