Baltimore Ravens to trade Joe Flacco to Denver Broncos

Case Keenum signed a two-year, $36 million deal last offseason, but Denver missed the playoffs again.

He was stoic, tough and resilient.

The Ravens will receive a fourth-round pick in return, a source told Albert Breer of The MMQB. For the Ravens, who had previously stumbled in their quest to find a franchise quarterback to pair with their star-studded defense, that was plenty good enough.

The trade won't be processed for another month as the NFL league year begins March 13. With Flacco now off the team, one of the lesser deals for $495,000 will get elevated and count. He spent 11 seasons with the Ravens and was the MVP of their Super Bowl triumph over the San Francisco 49ers to conclude the 2012 season.

Mbappe tells PSG not to feel fear after Man Utd win
Given the Parisians' two away goals, it would take something monumental to turn this tie around for the English giants. United has only scored one goal at home in four Champions League games this season, a 1-0 victory over Young Boys.

The decision to trade Flacco shows the team's commitment to quarterback Lamar Jackson who was the team's first round pick past year. He is due $18 million in 2019, with just $7 million guaranteed. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins are among the teams expected to add new quarterbacks.

Flacco, 34, was injured during the 2018 season with Baltimore after nine games (which included a 27-14 win over the Broncos in Week 3). His contract carries cap hits of $18.50 million for 2019, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021.

He was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2008.
