Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

New Broncos coach Vic Fangio spent one season in Baltimore while Flacco was with the team.

National Football League fans will soon be asking that about the Broncos quarterback, because Flacco is being dealt to Denver, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday. The trade can not be made official until the National Football League year begins on March 13, he says. Schefter noted that, because of this, teams are now prohibited from commenting on the terms of the deal.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Broncos will send back a mid-round pick for Flacco. When the deal is completed, the Ravens will save $10.5 million in cap space. Adding insult to injury, Darren Rovell reports the Ravens paid Flacco $73 million for those 51 games in which he won just 47 percent of his starts. However, they will carry $16 million in dead money on their 2019 cap.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos finished the season at 6-10 behind veteran QB Case Keenum, who is due $18 million for 2019 with $7 million of that fully guaranteed.

Flacco, 34, is a former Super Bowl MVP, but he's largely underwhelmed since Baltimore's championship season in 2012. The Broncos began to study him during Super Bowl week, sources told ESPN, and agreed to a deal before the combine.

He was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2008.
