Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco reported for the start of the team's voluntary workouts, despite not having a new deal.

"I wanted to come, just see the guys and throw the ball around a little bit," Flacco told the team's official website. "The contract is not really an issue. It's going to be taken care of by the guys upstairs and my agent.

"I really don't have anything to worry about on that front. Either it's going to get done or it's not. I won't be happy if it doesn't get done, but I'm not going to make a big deal of it."

While there have been differing reports on the negotiations with Flacco -- some say there has been progress while others indicate talks are at a standstill -- it's a positive sign for the Ravens that Flacco decided to show up when he had no obligation to do so.
