Joe Flacco Headed to Denver After Ravens and Broncos Agree to Deal

Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

Schefter reported the Broncos were quick to move on Flacco with so many other quarterbacks expected to switch teams and fellow teams in need. The trade can not become official until March 13, so by league rules, the Broncos can not publicly talk about the move until then.

Flacco, 33, has been in the league the Ravens selected him in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Flacco was cleared later in the year, but the Ravens chose to start rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. Flacco is set to earn $18.5 million this year and Foles will likely earn more than $25 million. Meanwhile, the Broncos never got their 2018 quarterback, Case Keenum, to replicate the kind of efforts he enjoyed with the Minnesota Vikings the year before.

The PDP has accused the government of seeking to rig the vote while the APC has said the opposition party is fomenting unrest. State elections will hold on March 2.


If Flacco winds up as the Broncos starter in the fall, he would be the fifth starting quarterback for Denver since Peyton Manning retired. Denver will send a mid-round pick in the deal, NFL Network reported. The Broncos wield the No. 10 overall pick and were thought to be potential QB seekers of the highest order. The team underperformed a year ago with a record of 6-10, finishing third in the AFC West, and Keenum was partly to blame for the disappointing season.

Hip and back injuries were concerns for Flacco in recent seasons.

In nine appearances during 2018, Flacco threw for 2,465 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Josh Gad (Olaf), and Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) are also set to return. The film was later adapted into a Broadway musical just past year where it was nominated for three Tony awards.


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. He has one year remaining on a two-year, $36m contract, with $6.5m of his $18m due for 2019 guaranteed if he is released.
