‘Flaccid’ Joe Flacco Gets Second Chance at Football Glory with the Denver Broncos

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Baltimore Ravens have agreed in principle to trade 34-year-old quarterback Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round draft pick.

Flacco lost the starting quarterback job during the 2018 season to rookie Lamar Jackson, who went on to have one of the worst NFL playoff performances since…Joe Flacco. 

Flacco became Fluke-o during his magical 2012 Super Bowl run, only to transform into ‘Flaccid’ Flacco after that. Although Flacco hasn’t been able to regain the magic from six years ago, the Broncos are betting on him having enough left in the tank to compliment an already good defense and running game.

Meanwhile, the Ravens are putting their chips in on the 22-year-old Jackson, who looked more like a running back than a quarterback at times.
