Ravens agree to trade Flacco to Broncos

Ravens agree to trade Flacco to Broncos

Multiple major media reports indicate the Broncos are set to acquire Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

Like the Alex Smith trade during Super Bowl week a year ago, there are some maneuvers that are so critical to a team's planning that they often get done before the start of the new league year.

Flacco was cleared later in the year, but the Ravens chose to start rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson.

And now, after three years of wandering the quarterback wilderness, three playoff misses and back-to-back seasons of double-digit losses, Elway has a trade in place for Joe Flacco.

Flacco is likely to replace Case Keenum as the Broncos' starting quarterback. And Gary Kubiak, former Broncos executive and head coach, coached Flacco in Baltimore and was one of his bigger fans.

The former Heisman Trophy victor threw for 1,201 yards on 99 attempts for six touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Broncos can not comment on or confirm the reported trade.

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.

Last season, Keenum tied for the second-most interceptions in the National Football League with 15 as he recorded 6.6 yards per pass attempt in 2018. Or, the team could move on from him after the 2019 season with zero cap penalties as all the guarantees in his contract will have already been paid out.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens have reached an agreement in principle with the Broncos. 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. But Salguero also reported that the Dolphins do not have interest in Bridgewater as they prepare to tank the 2019 season, angling for a high draft selection in 2020.

On the field, this trade means the Packers will play against Flacco when the Broncos visit Lambeau Field next season. In the lone win of Lynch's career, he threw for 170 passing yards and one touchdown to beat the Buccaneers.
