ESPN's Chris Mortensen talks about the Ravens contract issues with quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice.
Flacco, who is looking for a contract extension, reported to the team's offseason workout program Monday. Rice, who is playing under the franchise tag, likely won't attend the workouts until he gets a new deal.
"We’re waiting to see what’s up [before signing the franchise tender],” Rice said recently. “We just have to figure out what’s best for me and my family right now. I want to be a part of the offseason program, I want to be a part of the team and obviously this works on both ends. I think progress is being made. I know things don’t happen overnight, but a lot of things can change in weeks, months, time. So when it happens, it happens.”
