Ravens to trade Flacco to Broncos

13 February 2019

The Ravens agreed to trade quarterback Joe Flacco to the Broncos on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Denver Broncos are reported to be trading for Flacco, though the deal can not officially happen until the league year begins on March 13. Last year, the veteran lost his starting job to rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, whom the Ravens committed to building around after drafting him in the first round. The Broncos are in need of a starting quarterback after a disastrous season with Case Keenum under center. Jackson struggled in that game and many Ravens fans were wondering why head coach John Harbaugh didn't re-insert Flacco as the starter in the second half.

Flacco, 34, is a former Super Bowl MVP, but he's largely underwhelmed since Baltimore's championship season in 2012.

May also told MPs she rejected a proposal put forward by the main opposition Labour party for Britain to join an EU customs union. She said May would bring her deal back to Parliament for a vote "as soon as the issue around the backstop has been sorted out".

In nine starts with the Ravens a year ago, Flacco had 2,465 passing yards and 12 touchdowns to six interceptions. Additionally, Schefter notes that both teams are prohibited from commenting on the trade or terms surrounding it.
