According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens have reached an agreement in principle with the Broncos. After missing the last few weeks of the 2018 National Football League regular season due to injury, Flacco's time with the Ravens is over. Jackson struggled in that game and many Ravens fans were wondering why head coach John Harbaugh didn't re-insert Flacco as the starter in the second half.

There will be plenty of debate over Flacco's legacy in Baltimore, but he did lead the team to a Super Bowl title in 2012 with one of the best four-game stretches of quarterbacking that we've seen in the playoffs.

Flacco has $79 million remaining on his contract over the next three seasons.

The Ravens are to receive a mid-round pick in the National Football League draft for Flacco, according to the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade can not become official for another month and the teams had no immediate comment.

Case Keenum was the starting quarterback of the Broncos last season. Both of those totals are far and away the most in franchise history.

The teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or the terms.
