Broncos to acquire Joe Flacco from Ravens

Share

On the heels of rookie signal caller Lamar Jackson getting the starting job with the Ravens and leading the team to the postseason this past year, Baltimore has reportedly made a decision to send its Super Bowl winning quarterback and person whose career is essentially one big meme to the Denver Broncos.

Earlier: Joe Flacco's career in Baltimore is over, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal can't be processed "officially" until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13.

According to Schefter, the Ravens will get a mid-round pick for Flacco, something confirmed by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He has three years and $63 million remaining on his contract.

Brown was charged in November for driving his black sports vehicle over 100 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone. However, ESPN reports that cap hit can be spread over multiple years if Brown is traded after June 1.

Flacco is 96-67 as a regular-season starter and before his injury after nine games in 2018, had started all 16 games in nine of his first 10 years. The Broncos have an extra fourth-round pick from the Demaryius Thomas trade.

Former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco could be donning a Broncos jersey next season.

Baltimore went 4-5 with Flacco as the starter last season. And Flacco has had back and hip troubles in recent seasons, so keeping Keenum is not off the table just yet.

Of course, there was also " Stormi's Shop" with limited edition merch including hoodies and tees that read "Wish You Were Here". On Jenner's birthday, Kylie shared adorable photos and video of her little girl on Instagram, along with a special message.

Flacco, 34, has spent his entire career in Baltimore and finishes his tenure as the franchise's most successful quarterback after setting multiple records and winning the team's second Super Bowl. Also, the salary-cap savings if Keenum is released ($11 million) and the "dead money" hit - salary-cap charge for a player no longer on the roster - of $10 million are roughly the same.

Elway betted the under financially in 2018 signing journeyman Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million contract with $25 million guaranteed, and the entire contract guaranteed for injury.
