A long-standing agreement between the NFL and the NCAA will keep Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Joe Flacco out of a four-day passing camp at the end of the month, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The agreement limits a player to one minicamp with a pro team while his school is still in session. That means Flacco, who attended the Ravens' mandatory minicamp last weekend, can't rejoin the Ravens until after final exams end at Delaware on May 30 -- despite the fact Flacco has withdrawn from school.

Flacco will practice at two passing camps in June before reporting to training camp in July, The Sun reported.

"It doesn't help, but I don't know how much it will hurt," said Flacco's agent, Joe Linta, according to The Sun. "He's a very cerebral kid."

Linta and the Ravens met Monday to discuss the framework of a five-year contract, and are expected to talk again by the end of next week, the newspaper reported.

"They want the kid in, I want the kid in, and the kid wants the kid in," Linta said, according to the report. "I have this blue-collar belief: If you start now, you have a much better chance to finish this thing than if you start three days before training camp."

The kid is going to be good and that's going to make Ravens dangerous if their defense doesnt get old-age pension too much into the year! :lol:

Flacco's agent describes him as "cerebral".

Flacco's proves this by dropping out of college.

Yep, sounds like a Raven to me.

Then why did they bench him in favor of Palko?.... That is why he left.

...Players have this issue from time to time. I think Holmes had to do some stuff at OSU and miss a few days when he was a rookie....

....Man, Les is just freakin' me out now..... :lol:
