11:14 AM ET 02.09 | While the Ravens front office contemplates Joe Flacco's agent's insistence that his client should be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, Flacco's teammates have a pretty good idea of where Flacco stands with the rest of his peers. "He deserves to get paid," outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said as a guest on The NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" program Friday night. "Where he scales at, that's between our front office and his agent. But he definitely deserves it. The man has a championship ring and you reward your champion by paying him." Wide receiver and return specialist Jacoby Jones appeared on the same program and voiced a similar opinion. "Why not?" Jones said when asked if Flacco should be the highest-paid quarterback in the league. "I call him Smoking Joe. The man has been in the playoffs every time. Just look at what he did, look at what he's done, look at what he's going to do. Man is going to be a legend." Joe Linta, Flacco's agent, has openly spoke of his intent to get his client his just compensation, which would entail hammering out a deal that would exceed the $20 million average earned by the New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees.

The most important man on their team has been Boldin and he is talking about leaving the team. Without Boldin Baltimore never makes it to the Super Bowl. I think Baltimore should dump all their money in those 3 players, I predict next year they won't even win the AFC North, especially if Boldin retires or goes to another team that will give him a truckload of money.

I think he deserves a raise, BUT I would not rank him in the top five QB's in the league. Rodgers, Brees, Brady, and both Mannings are ahead of him.

Wait until management calls suggs in and wants him to re do his contract and or lets some guys go to make the cap room to give to Flacco. Interview him then about it.

I'm sure Suggs would be happy to re-do his contract to keep Flacco.
