When new Offensive Coordinator Marc Trestman was asked whether he has spoken yet with Ravens franchise quarterback Joe Flacco, he admitted that they have only texted.
"We know Joe's been busy," Trestman joked.
That's because Flacco was preoccupied with the birth of his third son, Francis Michael. Wife Dana gave birth Tuesday night to the healthy 9-pound, 7-ounce baby boy, joining brothers Stephen Vincent (born in 2012) and Daniel (2013).
Flacco has said on multiple occasions that he would like to have a big family, so it wouldn't be surprising if the family added another little Flacco to the mix in the future.
After missing the birth of his second son due to a regular-season game last year, Flacco turned down his first Pro Bowl invitation this week. Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady all pulled out of the game because of injuries or the Super Bowl.
"Joe was fired up about [his new baby]," Harbaugh said. "He had to make a decision. They called him about the Pro Bowl and he had to decide [between] Dana or the Pro Bowl. We can all agree he made the right choice."
