Joe Flacco is headed to the Broncos in a trade that can become official March 13.

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to trade former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, per a report by Adam Schefter.

The teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or the terms. Flacco is set to make $18 million in 2019.

That means Baltimore will have an estimated $31.999 million in available cap space for 2019 given current salary cap projection of $190 million.

Police Have Announced an Arrest in Suitcase Murder of Valerie Reyes
Police said they have examined hundreds of hours of surveillance footage in the case and interviewed several potential witnesses. A wake for Reyes is scheduled for this afternoon and evening at the Lloyd Maxie and Sons Funeral Home in New Rochelle.


The Broncos signed Case Keenum last offseason, who did not pan out, just like each quarterback Elway, as GM and team president, has tried since winning the Super Bowl with Peyton Manning following the 2015 season. Flacco is 34 years old and coming off a season in which he lost his starting job to Lamar Jackson.

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

The deal, while perplexing on the surface, will create a ripple effect in Denver. According to Over The Cap's calculator, trading Flacco will free up $28.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021. He was drafted 18th overall by the Ravens in 2008 and held on to the starter's role until he was sidelined by injury in Week 9 of last season.
