SAN DIEGO (AP) - Life is good when you're Joe Flacco's little brother.
Mike Flacco is an undrafted rookie tight end with the San Diego Chargers. Older brother Joe, of course, is the quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens.
Joe helped Mike the last few months with tips about routes and even provided him film of Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta.
And there are perks such as getting to use a car as part of the deal Joe has with a Baltimore dealership.
Now comes something Joe can't help him with - making the team. With Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green on the roster, Flacco - who played four seasons of minor league baseball and just one season at tight end in college - knows his best chance is via special teams.
