  • Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens have reached an agreement in principle with the Broncos.

CBS Sports Jason La Canfora also confirmed the trade Wednesday.

The decision to trade Flacco shows the team's commitment to quarterback Lamar Jackson who was the team's first round pick past year.

Around the league, fans and pundits wondered what Denver general manager John Elway was thinking.

One running gag on social media is the question about whether Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is elite. With another three years left on his deal, Flacco could be the answer to Denver's quarterback quandry. 2019 will be his 11th season in the NFL.

Flacco was the Super Bowl XLVII most valuable player after leading the Ravens to the championship in the 2012 season that included a stunning double-overtime win over the Broncos in the AFC divisional round.

Meanwhile, the Broncos, who have the 10th overall pick in this year's draft, are addressing their biggest need as the NFL's offseason quarterback carousel is beginning to spin.

Flacco, 34, has spent his entire career in Baltimore and finishes his tenure as the franchise's most successful quarterback after setting multiple records and winning the team's second Super Bowl. Additionally, Schefter notes that both teams are prohibited from commenting on the trade or terms surrounding it.
