Ravens to trade Flacco to Broncos

The Baltimore Ravens have an agreement in principle to trade former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, league sources told ESPN on Wednesday. According to oddsmakers, Flacco's addition to the Broncos doesn't change their outlook even a bit.

ESPN said the trade can not take place until March 13 when the new NFL league year begins.

Flacco has $79 million remaining on his contract over the next three seasons. While Flacco has not been a "win now" quarterback for a few years, this move would seem to indicate the Broncos are confident they can put together a competitive roster and that Flacco can help elevate them in a way Case Keenum couldn't.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Whenever John Elway talks about a deal, a contract, a player or most anything that crosses his desk for the Denver Broncos, two words nearly always sum up his feelings about doing, or not doing, any of it.

The 11-year veteran played in nine games in 2018 - including a Week 3 matchup against the Broncos in Baltimore - before he suffered an injury that forced him out of the lineup.

Hip and back injuries were concerns for Flacco in recent seasons. He's a career 61.7 percent passer with a 1.56 touchdown to interception ratio. But the compensation headed from Denver to Baltimore will be a mid-round pick, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

This marks the first trade for new Ravens general manager Eric Decosta, who replaced Ozzie Newsome at the conclusion of last season.

The Delaware product has won 106 career games - including postseason appearances - and thrown for 212 touchdowns and more than 38,000 yards.

Keenum and the Broncos agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $36 million, with $25 million fully guaranteed.
