Ravens to trade Joe Flacco to Broncos
11:12 AM ET
  • ESPN

The Baltimore Ravens have an agreement in principle to trade former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

The trade cannot be officially processed until the new NFL league year begins March 13. The teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or the terms surrounding it. When the deal is completed, it likely will be for a mid-round pick, sources told ESPN.

HAHAHAHA...yeah you must have seen on twitter too

 

Hensley - With Joe Flacco trade to Broncos (per @AdamSchefter), Ravens will free up $10.5 million in cap space and carry $16 million in dead money in 2019.

Kind of like Kharma going back in his face, from year's ago.

 

Over the last three seasons:

 

Joe Flacco (41 starts) 50 TDs, 34 INTs, 63.8 CMP%, 82.6 QB rate, 242 yards a game.

 

Case Keenum (41 starts) 49 TDs, 33 INTs, 63.8 CMP%, 86 QB rate, 235.1 yards a game.

Dang Papa, I thought with your malice towards Flacco you'd be partying like its 1999.  What do you care if it blows up in Elways face ?

This deal can't be finalized until the start of the league year March 13th.

That's 30 days away and a lot of Buyers Remorse could set in.

Initial reactions are that the Bronco's are dumby's and that  DeCosta pulled a fast one.

 

 

Denver Broncos: D+.........He has been Denver will have $28.5 million on its 2019 cap for Keenum and Flacco, with no quarterback of the future on the roster. It's hard to fathom how the Broncos got here, but it's an incredibly unenviable position.a slightly below-average quarterback over the course of his 11-year run. Having turned 34 in January, it's hard to believe he is suddenly going to get better over a multiyear run, especially given the lack of talent the Broncos have on offense.....http://www.espn.com/...denver-get-here

 

 

Baltimore Ravens: B+

The Ravens have to be thrilled to get a midround pick for Flacco, who was out of their plans and likely to be released unless Baltimore found a trade partner. The compensation suggests there were multiple teams in for him or that new general manager Eric DeCosta managed to persuade the Broncos to negotiate against themselves. The Ravens will eat $16 million in dead money on their 2019 cap and then be rid of one of the worst contracts in modern NFL history.....http://www.espn.com/...er-get-here....

I don't know. I think the Potomac Drainage Basin Indigenous Persons made the same deal for Alex Smith last year before the league year started. That stood.

I am happy he was traded.  I am just shocked anyone would do it since I think he gives them nothing.  As for Elway I just think its funny how some of his GM decisions are so incompetent.  Really nothing has changed from my perspective.  I am always stunned by mind numbing moves by most NFL franchises.

 

 

Because he's an asshole.

You are and will alwasy be a incompetent jackass.  You have no idea what you speak of and you really should have been aborted.

 

 

 

DeCosta has to be given a huge amount of credit with the beginning of his tenure.  This is not a move Ozzie would have made.

With the negativity the Broncos/Elway are getting I wouldn't be surprised if he backed out.

Maybe.  Eric may have been to far in front of his skis on this one.  It should have been done closer to the season yr start.

Well remember that Foles was going to be available too so maybe Eric felt he had to strike when the iron was hot.
