The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly agreed to trade former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. And while he can not officially be traded until the new league year begins March 13, Flacco will become John Elway's next quarterback solution.
Flacco, 34, went 4-5 in nine starts for the Ravens last season before he was forced out of the lineup with a hip injury.
The reported trade thrusts the future of incumbent Broncos starter Case Keenum into jeopardy.
New Broncos coach Vic Fangio spent one season in Baltimore while Flacco was with the team. With another three years left on his deal, Flacco could be the answer to Denver's quarterback quandry. He led Baltimore to the playoffs six times and won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.
In nine starts with the Ravens previous year, Flacco had 2,465 passing yards and 12 touchdowns to six interceptions.
The two teams are unable to comment about the terms of the deal until March 13th, so we'll know more then what the Ravens got in return for Flacco.
