Trade cannot be processed until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13. Teams prohibited from commenting on deal or terms surrounding it.
Flacco, who the Ravens drafted in the first-round of the 2008 NFL Draft, started nine games in 2018 going 232 for 379 and 12 touchdowns before suffering a hip injury that sidelined him for four weeks. Rookie Lamar Jackson eventually earned the starting job, and after a playoff appearance for the first time in three season, the Ravens made it clear Jackson was their future.
The Broncos are sending a mid-round pick in exchange for Flacco, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
The 34-year-old has some history with Denver. Mile High Stadium was site of the legendary Mile High Miracle on the team's path to Super Bowl XLVII.
Teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or its terms surrounding it until the new league year.
