Joe Flacco, Ravens kick back for a -- wait for it -- Bachelorette night

When quarterback Joe Flacco and his Baltimore Ravens teammates get together, what television show would you expect them to watch?

"The Walking Dead"? "Game of Thrones"? Or maybe binge-watch some reruns of "Breaking Bad"?

Not even close. They all kicked back on the couch to watch "The Bachelorette." And, luckily for all of us, it was captured on social media.

Wide receiver Daniel Brown commemorated the moment by tweeting out a picture Monday night of Flacco, pillow-hugging kicker Justin Tucker and tight ends Dennis Pitta and Nick Boyle watching the ABC reality show. It was a nice touch for Brown to tag Joelle Fletcher (the actual Bachelorette) and include a rose emoji in the tweet.

Aaron Rodgers has every right to be in front of the television for "The Bachelorette." His brother Jordan is one of the contestants.

In Flacco's defense, he is known for his love of reality shows. Remember, Flacco sported a "Jersey Shore" inspired haircut for a Halloween charity event.

The Ravens have a couple of connections with "The Bachelorette." In the show's first season (2003), the winner was Ryan Sutter, a fifth-round pick of the Ravens who failed to make the final cut with the team. This year, the cousin of Ravens running back Justin Forsett is vying for Fletcher's love.

My guess is Brown's group pic on Twitter will be a topic of conversation at Tuesday's Ravens practice or the subsequent team meeting.
