Ravens Joe Flacco Traded to Broncos

Report: Broncos have agreement to trade for Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco

Last season started well for Flacco, with three single-game grades of 83.0 or greater during Weeks 1 to 4. Flacco won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2013 and most recently has his job stolen by a rookie QB in Lamar Jackson.

But it seems like general manager John Elway and Fangio must feel that this is a risk worth taking.

The report noted the trade can't be processed until new NFL league year begins on March 13.

And there are plenty of questions still to answer. What happens with Case Keenum? To bring it full circle, Denver's current offensive coordinator, Rich Scangarello, spent the last two years as Shanahan's quarterbacks coach in San Francisco. The Broncos can try to trade Keenum, but with a $21 million total cap number and $7 million in guarantees for the upcoming season, that might make it hard to find trade partners.

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. The Broncos wield the No. 10 overall pick and were thought to be potential QB seekers of the highest order.

Flacco's finest moments came at the end of the 2012 season as he threw 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the postseason to guide the Ravens to a Super Bowl XLVII title.

The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

Joe has dealt with knee, back and most recently hip injuries in the past few seasons.

The Broncos in recent years have tried Keenum, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch at quarterback. He reported when completed, the Ravens will likely get a mid-round pick. With Flacco set to become a Bronco, Keenum's days are numbered.

"We always talk about rebuilding, but if I say we're 'rebuilding, ' that sounds like an excuse", Elway said last month. Our standards are still the same.

Still, moving into win-now mode with Flacco is a risk, especially because the Broncos play in the same division as the Chiefs and the Chargers.
