The Baltimore Ravens have an agreement in principle to trade quarterback Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a fourth-round pick, according to a person with knowledge of the agreement.
The trade would swap the Super Bowl MVP for a mid-round pick. Flacco was supplanted by Lamar Jackson during the Ravens’ bye week, as the team sat at 4-5 through the first half of the 2018 season. His acceptance of his role as a back-up was largely commended. It was even reported that during the Ravens’ offensive struggles in their first round playoff loss to the Chargers, Flacco felt the team should stick with Jackson at quarterback. The rookie managed a late rally, but it was not enough to overcome an early deficit.
The trade cannot be processed until the new league year begins which is March 13th. It cannot become official until then, the Broncos and Ravens also cannot comment on the deal or terms according to Schefter.
