Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco signed a $120 million contract in March but still wanted to take a shot at the $648 million Mega Millions jackpot. 

According to The Caw of, Flacco was spotted at a 7-Eleven picking up a ticket. A fan was standing in line at the wrong cash register and was passed by Flacco when changing lines. Flacco politely let the fan go ahead of him after cutting him.

Flacco was apparently just covering his tracks, saying, "I couldn’t have him blaming me when I won and he lost and I didn’t let him back where he was supposed to be." 

Flacco said he plays for fun whenever the jackpot gets above $100 million. And what would the Ravens signal-caller do with the money if he won?

He laughed, "Not tell anybody."


Hat tip to Deadspin for the find.
