Baltimores Ravens Agree To Trade Joe Flacco

ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the Ravens and Broncos have an agreement in principle, but that the trade can not be processed until the new NFL league year begins on March 13.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos finished the season at 6-10 behind veteran QB Case Keenum, who is due $18 million for 2019 with $7 million of that fully guaranteed. While the details of the deal aren't yet known, because the trade can't officially happen until March 13 when the league year opens, it will severely impact Baltimore's salary cap for 2019 and beyond.

Flacco lost his starting job last season to rookie Lamar Jackson and was widely expected to be traded or released in the offseason. He is to be paid $18.5 million next season, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021. He led Baltimore to the playoffs six times and won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.

The Division 2 open beta was seemingly revealed on a livestream
Similarly, we can only make an educated guess, based on past events, as to what will be included in the forthcoming open beta. In the end though, maybe The Division 2 will be the one out of those three that hooks me in the most.

The Ravens will receive a fourth-round pick in return, a source told Albert Breer of The MMQB. Teams prohibited from commenting on deal or terms surrounding it. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins are among the teams expected to add new quarterbacks.

One running gag on social media is the question about whether Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco is elite. Since then, Denver has drafted Brock Osweiler (2012 second round), Paxton Lynch (2016 first round) and three seventh-round picks, per SB Nation.
