Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco does not think that being the highest paid player in the NFL is a big deal.

Joe Flacco has said that his six-year $120.6m (£80.3m) contract with the Baltimore Ravens is "not a big deal".

The Super Bowl MVP signed the new contract yesterday, making him the highest paid player in the NFL.

The 28-year-old quarterback told reporters: "It was pretty uneventful, to tell you the truth. It's not really a big deal.

"Our goal is to win the Super Bowl. That's always been one of my goals. It's never necessarily been a goal of mine to get paid like this. It's just what comes with the job.

"It means a lot. It was never necessarily about the money. But it's definitely about earning that respect."

Flacco was drafted by the Ravens in 2008, leading them to a Super Bowl win in 2012.
