Ravens to trade Flacco to Broncos

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

The deal can't be processed "officially" until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13. Additionally, Schefter notes that both teams are prohibited from commenting on the trade or terms surrounding it. But from the day he arrived in Baltimore as a newly-minted first-round pick to his final moment as a Raven, Flacco was always himself.

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

The decision to trade Flacco shows the team's commitment to quarterback Lamar Jackson who was the team's first round pick previous year. He is to be paid $18.5 million next season, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021.

The move opens the door for the Broncos to possibly trade or release Case Keenum, whose performance last season as starting quarterback was viewed generally as a disappointment.

Flacco led the Ravens to the Super Bowl in 2013 and was the Super Bowl XLVII MVP. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins are among the teams expected to add new quarterbacks.

Regardless, it became clear after the season that Jackson is the team's quarterback moving forward which made Flacco an expendable piece.

Flacco, 34, has no more guaranteed money on his contract.
