"I'm not worried about it," Flacco said Saturday night at an event for the Special Olympics. "I told Joe (Joe Linta, Flacco's agent) don't even call me. I'm not worried about it. Unless you have some kind of crazy news, then don't concern me with it.

"I'm going to go out there, I'm going to play, I'm going to practice. There really is no timetable. If it happens, it happens."

The Ravens recently inked running back Ray Rice to a five-year, $40 million contract.

"I was happy for him," Flacco said. "I sent him a text right away, 'Congratulations.' He deserves it. He played his a__ off the last couple of years. It's just good to see that he has the security and that he can feel comfortable."

A source close to the situation recently told that there is a "75 percent chance" a deal with Flacco will be done before the start of training camp.
