Broncos to acquire Joe Flacco from Ravens

Broncos to acquire Joe Flacco from Ravens

A month before the start of free agency and almost two months before the National Football League draft, the Denver Broncos believe they found their answer at quarterback.

This is where Keenum makes a ton of sense for the Dolphins. He recorded an 82.2 overall grade, 117.2 passer rating, and an 11-to-0 touchdown to interception ratio during that postseason run, which culminated with a 34-to-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

So while Flacco is unlikely to bring a Super Bowl victory to Denver, the Broncos' move to bag him works as a domino effect.

The Washington Redskins likely won't have quarterback Alex Smith for the 2019 season due suffering a broken leg against the Houston Texans late in the 2018 season.

OnePlus to show off its 5G smartphone at MWC
OnePlus has confirmed its plans to showcase a 5G smartphone prototype at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show next week. OnePlus has now invited the media to experience the company's prototype 5G smartphone at Qualcomm's booth at the event.

What the Broncos will give up for Flacco is unclear although NFL Network reported that it will be a mid-round pick.

But now comes four weeks' worth of public dissection and no real public comment from Elway, coach Vic Fangio or anyone else in the organization.

I believe it's an easy argument to say Baltimore should have waited a little longer - especially considering the deal can't even go through until March 13 when the league year officially starts.

And there are plenty of questions still to answer. A year ago, Elway signed Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal and said Keenum had a better year in 2017 than Kirk Cousins, whom the Broncos had also looked at in free agency.

Google upgrades Gmail right-click menu
Many features that land for G Suite customers are implemented for free users as well eventually, and usually in a short period. Gmail's right-click menu is not particularly useful at this point in time as it provides only a handful of options.

Brock Osweiler The Broncos used the 57th overall pick on Osweiler in 2012 and groomed him to be the heir to Manning. Last season started well for Flacco, with three single-game grades of 83.0 or greater during Weeks 1 to 4.

The Broncos can not comment on or confirm the reported trade.

Lamar Jackson took the starting quarterback job of the Ravens from Flacco last season.

The Broncos will get Flacco's base salary of $18.5 million in 2019, $20.25 million in 2020, and $24.25 million in 2021.
