Anthony Jean-Claude: The Baltimore Ravens’ Joey Flacco Becomes the Highest-Paid Player in NFL History

May 28, 2013

Anthony Jean-Claude currently serves as President of Maryland Green BioFuel, a progressive energy concern located in Frederick Douglass Haynes Gardens, Maryland. An avid sports fan, Anthony Jean-Claude enjoys football and follows the play of one of his favorite teams, the 2013 Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens and its quarterback, Joey Flacco.

In recognition of his contribution to this year’s winning season and the NFL championship, and in hopes of future repeat championships, Ravens management recently inked a six-year contract with Flacco for a purported $120.6 million, making him the highest-paid player in NFL history. Flacco’s ascent to being not only the highest-paid player but also one of the league’s most respected quarterbacks is all the more remarkable considering his humble path from a small college to the NFL and his low-key demeanor. His first gesture of celebration after a press conference announcing the contract signing was to return home to Audubon, New Jersey, to partake in a Friday night family tradition: pizza night at his uncle’s house.
