Baltimores Ravens Agree To Trade Joe Flacco

13 February 2019

The Broncos signed Case Keenum as a free agent last offseason but apparently are prepared to move on from him as the starter and hand the job to Flacco.

He was stoic, tough and resilient. When the deal is completed, it likely will be for a midround pick, sources told ESPN. For the Ravens, who had previously stumbled in their quest to find a franchise quarterback to pair with their star-studded defense, that was plenty good enough.

The trade can not officially be processed until the new league year begins March 13. After missing the last few weeks of the 2018 National Football League regular season due to injury, Flacco's time with the Ravens is over. In 2012, he led the Ravens to a victory in Super Bowl XLVII and took the game's MVP honors.

By trading Flacco, Baltimore will have $16 million on their dead cap for 2019.

The teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or the terms. The Broncos will carry $10 million in dead money if they cut him.

New Broncos coach Vic Fangio spent one season in Baltimore while Flacco was with the team.

If Flacco winds up as the Broncos starter in the fall, he would be the fifth starting quarterback for Denver since Peyton Manning retired.

Flacco, 34, has no more guaranteed money on his contract.

He was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2008.
