The former Super Bowl MVP award victor is heading to the Denver Broncos in a trade, according to National Football League insider Adam Schefter. The trade can not become official until March 13, so by league rules, the Broncos can not publicly talk about the move until then.

Flacco was sharp in a victory over the Broncos in Baltimore early last season, so he can still play, but he's been battling some injury issues and was "Wally Pipped" a year ago by Lamar Jackson when his injuries forced him to miss some games.

In March 2016, he signed a three-year, $66.4 million contract extension that runs through the 2021 season.

Flacco is likely to replace Case Keenum as the Broncos' starting quarterback.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (5) walks off the field following the overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. He has completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 38,245 yards and 212 touchdowns.

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. The Ravens will absorb a $16 million cap penalty for trading Flacco.

The Ravens have reportedly struck a deal to send QB Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, according to industry reports. Elway has selected a quarterback in five of the last seven NFL Drafts, and those five players have made a combined 39 starts and delivered 19 wins.

New Broncos coach Vic Fangio was in Baltimore for Flacco's first two seasons, so he knows what he'll be getting.

Warren has said the story of Pocahontas long has "been taken away by powerful people who twisted it to serve their own purposes". Asked whether she believes Trump should be impeached, the Senator said it was important to first see Mueller's findings.


Flacco led the Ravens to the Super Bowl in 2013 and was the Super Bowl XLVII MVP. So quarterback should, and will, get a long look from the team in the buildup to April.

Flacco isn't a flawless fit for Denver but there is a leadership quality about him.

Heck, some might even view Elway, who has missed on Keenum and Paxton Lynch and badly mishandled the position since landing Manning, putting his stamp of disapproval on this class as a positive.
