Ravens to trade Flacco to Broncos

Zrebiec An appreciation of Joe Flacco a quarterback who was always going to be himself

According to ESPN, which cited league sources, the Ravens have an agreement in principle to trade their franchise quarterback to the Broncos.

Case Keenum With no one on the roster capable of serving as a starting quarterback in the NFL, Keenum signed a two-year deal with the Broncos in March of 2018 after a breakout year as a starter in Minnesota.

Flacco was cleared later in the year, but the Ravens chose to start rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. His contract carries cap hits of $18.50 million for 2019, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021.

Winter storm watch now a 'Warning'
Most areas in western Washington will pick up at least a few more inches of snow , if not more. Environment Canada has upgraded the winter storm watch for Guelph to a winter storm warning .

After the conclusion of the 2018 season, it was only a matter of when the Broncos were going to acquire another quarterback. Since 2015, Flacco has averaged 503 attempts, 302 completions, 3,179 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions as a season average. If he is cut, the Broncos will carry $10 million in dead money. Taking away a poor outing against Cincinnati in Week 2, Flacco produced a 91.9 overall grade and a 106.8 passer rating in three games during the season's first quarter. He led the team to 5 straight playoff appearances in his first 5 seasons, capped off by his magical run in the 2012 playoffs where he became just the second player in National Football League history to throw 11 touchdowns with no interceptions in the playoffs.

Well, things just got a bit more interesting on the quarterbacking landscape for the 2019 NFL Draft. The Broncos are expected, when everything becomes official, to send a midround pick to the Ravens (expected to be one of their two fourth-round picks) for the Super Bowl XLVII MVP. It doesn't get them any closer to solving their long-term quarterback problem, but outside of lucking out on Manning, Elway hasn't proven able to do that, anyway. That's one possibility. Another is that Denver strengthens its offensive line, which is also a need for the Packers.

Elway is always in what he calls win "from now on" mode, and Flacco's arrival will be just more proof of that.
