Ravens star quarterback Joe Flacco believed in his talents, bet on himself, and cashed in after winning the Super Bowl last month.
Flacco stuck to his guns, and now according to USA Today, the quarterback thinks wide receiver Anquan Boldin should do the same when it comes to the Ravens demanding he take a pay cut.
“Without him, we don’t win the Super Bowl. He’s a huge part of this team and someone I want to see back,” Flacco told USA TODAY Sports. “Obviously, when you’re a player of his caliber, you believe you’re worth a number and that’s what you should get. He’s going to stick to his guns, and that’s the way it should be.”
“He was really important down the stretch,” Flacco said. “He’s a guy who knows what he’s doing. He’s done it over and over again in this league. We just really started to hit it and really attack.”
Flacco stuck to his guns, so there was know way he could come out and suggest Boldin take less. Flacco reitereated that he supports whatever decision Boldin makes.

“This league is about going out and performing and playing well and having fun doing so,” Flacco said. “But it’s also our livelihood and it’s about getting paid. So teams are going to let go of you as soon as they can. So when you’re playing, you have to make sure you can get as much money as you can because that’s what’s going to take care of your family down the road.
