Joe Flacco done gone and got paid -- the Ravens quarterback cashed in on his free-agent status by signing the largest contract in NFL history.

But if you ask him, the new contract wasn't about the money. It was about respect.

"It was never about earning the money and all that. It was about earning the respect," Flacco said Monday at his press conference announcing the new deal. "Definitely about earning that respect and feeling that respect around here. The fact that we got it done and that they made me [the highest-paid player in the NFL] definitely makes me feel good about how we played and how they feel about me."
