08:08 AM ET 04.04 | Even his backup is in Joe Flacco's wage class. Flacco expressed disappointment Saturday that the Ravens have decided to wait on a contract extension until next offseason. Flacco, who enters the final year of his contract in 2012, said he he deserves an extension this offseason after quarterbacking the Ravens to playoff wins for three straight seasons. "I think I've established myself," Flacco told The Baltimore Sun before Haruki Nakamura's Japan relief charity event at Ripken Stadium. "If you're not confident with who I am, I'm not sure what [difference] a year is going to make." ... A first-round pick in 2008, Flacco is scheduled to make $4.5 million this season and $4.6 million in 2012. In comparison, the Ravens gave Marc Bulger $3.8 million last season just to be a backup.
