Broncos Agree To Acquire Joe Flacco From Ravens

021319_FlaccoTrade

New Broncos head coach Vic Fangio was with Flacco during his first two years in Baltimore. That adds more financial obligation to the position, and a short-term bottleneck that would likely prevent the rookie from gaining meaningful reps in game situations.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Baltimore Ravens have an agreement to trade Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos when the new league year begins next month. He downed new Broncos coach Vic Fangio's 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and, lest we forget, slayed Peyton Manning's Broncos and Tom Brady's Patriots in that same 2012 postseason, undoubtedly the best month of his National Football League career.

In nine appearances during 2018, Flacco threw for 2,465 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Everyone made the same "elite" joke after Flacco was sent to the Broncos.

Brock Osweiler The Broncos used the 57th overall pick on Osweiler in 2012 and groomed him to be the heir to Manning.

Lamar Jackson took the starting quarterback job of the Ravens from Flacco last season. And Flacco has had back and hip troubles in recent seasons, so keeping Keenum is not off the table just yet. Last season started well for Flacco, with three single-game grades of 83.0 or greater during Weeks 1 to 4.

United Kingdom horse racing suspended due to equine flu
Bettingexpert.com has estimated the current cancellations will end up costing the horse racing industry up to £100 million. The alarm was raised on Wednesday night when three vaccinated horses at McCain's base were found to have equine influenza.

The Broncos must pay Keenum $7 million of his $18 million base salary whether he's on the roster or not.

The reported trade thrusts the future of incumbent Broncos starter Case Keenum into jeopardy. That Elway clearly doesn't envision any potential plug-and-play candidates in the lot at No. 10 isn't stunning, but given his track record of acquiring QBs, it can be interpreted a few different ways.

Now, say Elway decides to select a quarterback with the Broncos' 10-overall pick. In his last four seasons as starter he went 24-27 after a 72-40 mark in his first seven.

How much of an upgrade will Flacco be over Keenum for the Broncos?

According to Schefter, the Ravens will get a mid-round pick for Flacco, something confirmed by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
