Broncos have agreement to trade for Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco

The former Super Bowl MVP award victor is heading to the Denver Broncos in a trade, according to National Football League insider Adam Schefter.

Last year, the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs agreed on a trade for quarterback Alex Smith (going to the Redskins) well before the start of the league year in mid-March.

Jackson got his first start in Week 11 and led the Ravens to a 6-1 record down the stretch, finishing 10-6 in the regular season with an AFC North title. Flacco is set to earn $18.5 million this year and Foles will likely earn more than $25 million.

After the Minnesota Vikings made a decision to move on from Case Keenum in 2018, the veteran quarterback ended up finding a new home with the Denver Broncos. NFL Network reported that the cost was a mid-round pick.

In early 2013, Flacco earned Super Bowl XLVII MVP honors, for a 22-of-33 performance that resulted in almost 300 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

If we thought the Demaryius Thomas trade was evidence that Elway was finally stripping down his Super Bowl-winning team from 2015, well, think again. In his last four seasons as starter he went 24-27 after a 72-40 mark in his first seven. Flacco was the Ravens opening day starter, but in Week 9 he suffered a hip injury and Jackson snagged the starting job.

The former Heisman Trophy victor threw for 1,201 yards on 99 attempts for six touchdowns and three interceptions. Keenum, who turns 31 on Sunday, completed 62.3% of his passes for 3,890 yards, with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. The Broncos will carry $10 million in dead money if they cut him.

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

Keenum is guaranteed $7 million in 2019, the second year of a two-year, $36 million contract. "Just how many different life changes I went through and how much we won here".
