Dannell Ellerbe is a free agent fresh off a Super Bowl win with the Baltimore Ravens. And while Joe Flacco is getting all the attention Ellerbe is patiently waiting to see if his team gets a deal done.

“This is the part of the business where you can’t let it get too personal because it is a business. I don’t want to hear everything. I don’t want to hear every knock on me,” Ellerbe said on WNST in Baltimore, via Sports Radio Interviews. “Of course you want to hear the good things, but I don’t want to get too carried away in that too. I know he’s going to do his job, let me know where we’re at and just looking forward and praying for the best.”

He was undrafted and Baltimore took a chance with him. He learned under the best and became a great linebacker. So clearly that coupled with a Super Bowl win brings some emotional attachment.

“I’m looking forward to making the best out of everything,” Ellerbe said. “The team that I play for, the money that I get, the situation I’m going into and all of that plays into it. I already have a Super Bowl. I want to be in Baltimore. My heart is in Baltimore, I love Baltimore, I love the fans, I love talking to y’all guys and I know I’m not going to talk to y’all somewhere else.”
