Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is as hot a commodity in the NFL as any player. He’s just 28 years old and has just begun to reach the prime of his career.  After an incredible postseason in which he went 4-0 with 11 touchdowns and no interceptions to lead the Ravens to a miraculous Super Bowl run, he’ll be looking for “elite” quarterback money.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated broke down all of the “elite” quarterbacks who have signed new contracts over the past four seasons:

QB Avg. Pay Year signed Age at signing
Drew Brees $20m 2012 33
Peyton Manning $19.2m 2012 35
Tom Brady $19m 2010 33
Eli Manning $16m 2009 28
Philip Rivers $15.2m 2009 27
