Like Drew Brees before him, Joe Flacco’s first order of business after signing a mammoth contract was to chow down.
The Ravens’ Super Bowl-winning quarterback, who officially became the richest player in NFL history Monday, celebrated his newfound wealth with good ol’ Mickey D’s.
Flacco pulled up to a McDonald’s drive-thru in Aberdeen, Md., about 40 miles from the team’s facility, and ordered a a 10-piece McNugget meal, with fries and an unsweetened iced tea.
The order came to $6.99, but it was quite the unusual one for Sherry Norman, a diehard Ravens fan who, following the initial stun, snapped a photo of the $120.6 million man.
“I kept saying to the people I work with, ‘Doesn’t that look like Joe Flacco?,’ ” Norman said, via ESPN.com. “And then he turned towards the window and it was him.”
This clearly proves Flacco is just like us everyday folk. Minus the, you know, $52 million in guarantees and all.
