The move was somewhat anticipated as rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson filled in admirably for Flacco as the veteran dealt with injuries last season and seemingly sealed his status as the starter for Baltimore going forward.
One running gag on social media is the question about whether Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is elite. He has three years and $63 million remaining on his contract.
In the LIVE breaking NFL video above, Chat Sports NFL analysts Tom Downey and Mitchell Renz (me!) break down the trade, give full details, and discuss what this means for the Broncos, the Ravens, and implications for the 2019 NFL Draft and free agency.
The Broncos signed Case Keenum last offseason, who did not pan out, just like each quarterback Elway, as GM and team president, has tried since winning the Super Bowl with Peyton Manning following the 2015 season.
Flacco was the Super Bowl XLVII most valuable player after leading the Ravens to the championship in the 2012 season that included a stunning double-overtime win over the Broncos in the AFC divisional round. Both of those totals are far and away the most in franchise history. Teams are not allowed to comment on a deal or the terms surrounding it, per Schefter.
