  • Joe Flacco

Joe Flacco is headed to Denver.

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

The two teams have reportedly agreed to the trade in principle, but the deal can not be processed until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13. Schefter noted that, because of this, teams are now prohibited from commenting on the terms of the deal. Flacco is set to make $18 million in 2019. However, they will carry $16 million in dead money on their 2019 cap.


Flacco led the Ravens to the Super Bowl in 2013 and was the Super Bowl XLVII MVP. Flacco is 34 years old and coming off a season in which he lost his starting job to Lamar Jackson.

Regardless, it became clear after the season that Jackson is the team's quarterback moving forward which made Flacco an expendable piece.

Case Keenum was the starting quarterback of the Broncos last season. A trade is similar to cutting a player in that it pushes all the prorated bonus money normally spread out over the life of a contract to right now. Since then, Denver has drafted Brock Osweiler (2012 second round), Paxton Lynch (2016 first round) and three seventh-round picks, per SB Nation.
