Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to trade Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos. NFL rules prohibit teams from discussing such trades until the start of the league year on March 13.

The 34-year-old Flacco has had back issues the last few seasons and his play has slipped.

The move opens the door for the Broncos to possibly trade or release Case Keenum, whose performance last season as starting quarterback was viewed generally as a disappointment.

Since Peyton Manning retired, Broncos President of Football Operations John Elway has had a hard time nailing down a franchise quarterback for the team. He's a career 61.7 percent passer with a 1.56 touchdown to interception ratio. When Manning suffered an injury during the 2015 season, Osweiler led the Broncos to the playoffs with a 5-2 record as a starter - but was benched in the regular season finale.

This move will help the Ravens save 10.5 million dollars in cap space and now Joe has found a new team that will give him another chance to be a teams starting QB.

Per OverTheCap.com, Flacco has a $26.5 million cap obligation for the 2019 season, and a $16 million cap hit were he to be released. Fortunately, as ESPN's Adam Schefter detailed, Flacco has no guaranteed money left on his current deal.

Newly hired Broncos head coach Vic Fangio worked for the Ravens from 2006 through 2008, so he has some experience with Flacco and what he can do on the field.

The Delaware product has won 106 career games - including postseason appearances - and thrown for 212 touchdowns and more than 38,000 yards. 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. While Denver general manager John Elway could wade into quarterback waters to find Flacco's eventual replacement, that doesn't jibe with his mindset.

Now, say Elway decides to select a quarterback with the Broncos' 10-overall pick.
