Baltimores Ravens Agree To Trade Joe Flacco

Adjust Comment Print

The Ravens have agreed to trade Joe Flacco to the Broncos, ESPN first reported Wednesday, after 11 seasons, one Super Bowl title and diminishing returns that ended with losing his starting job.

NFL Media reports Denver will send a mid-round pick to Baltimore in exchange. While the details of the deal aren't yet known, because the trade can't officially happen until March 13 when the league year opens, it will severely impact Baltimore's salary cap for 2019 and beyond. Flacco has three years remaining on his contract with cap hits of $26.5 million, $28.3 million and $24.3 million. The Broncos went 6-10 in the 2018 season and missed the playoffs.

A month before the start of free agency and almost two months before the National Football League draft, the Denver Broncos believe they found their answer at quarterback.

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 was the Super Bowl XLVII most valuable player after leading the Ravens to the championship in the 2012 season that included a stunning double-overtime win over the Broncos in the AFC divisional round. He has completed 61.7% of his passes for 38,245 yards and 212 touchdowns but his production has dropped off in recent years.
