The Baltimore Ravens have struck a deal to send QB Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, according to industry reports. The Ravens and Broncos have an agreement in principle, but that the trade cannot be processed until the new NFL league year begins on March 13.
Flacco was the starter for most of his 11 seasons with the team before a hip injury sidelined him after nine games this season. While he was out, the Ravens turned to rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, who led the team to a 6-1 stretch run that earned them the AFC North Division title and a home playoff game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Flacco lead the team to a Super Bowl title in 2012, and in his 11 years as a starter with the Ravens, the team compiled a 96-67 record while Flacco threw for over 38,000 yards and 212 touchdowns. Both of those totals are the most in franchise history.
