The agreement means that Baltimore is officially committed to Lamar Jackson as a quarterback. When the deal is finished, the Ravens will save $ 10.5 million in cap space. But they will make $ 16 million in cash on their 2019 cap.

Meanwhile, the Broncos, who have the full 10th pick in this year's year, are addressing their need as the NFL's quarterback carousel starts offseason.

The demand for the post is one reason why Denver has entered Flacco. The Broncos began studying in Super Bowl week, ESPN sources, and agreed to deal with the spouse.

Flacco, 34, is not guaranteed more money on his contract. Its basic salary contract is $ 18.5 million for 2019, $ 20.25 million in 2020 and $ 24.25 million in 2021.

New Broncos Vic Fangio coach was in Washington for the first two Flacco season, so he knows what he will get. Former Flacco fan, Broncos, Gary Kubiak, was his forefront and his views were a strong starting point to sell for sale in Denver.

The trade means that the Broncos are moving on from quarterback Case Keenum, who started last season's team after a two-year contract, signed $ 36 million in a free agency. It is due to $ 18 million in 2019, with a direct guarantee of $ 7 million. The Broncos will accept $ 10 million in dead money if they cut it.

Keenum joined the second interventions in the series last season with 15, with his 6.6 yards per effort 29th.

This is the first trademark for Eric DeCosta, the new general manager of Ravens, who replaced Ozzie Newsome at the end of the last season.

Denver has two fourth-round options – his own and the one received from Texans Houston as opposed to the wide receiver of Demaryius Thomas.

No matter what the compensation will be, Flacco will be playing in Denver, where he played a major role in the "Mile High Miracle" in January 2013 – a 70 yard passport that Jacoby Jones who played AFC's divisional playoff playoff into overtime. The Ravens went on to win the game in double overtime, followed by peaks in the AFC and Super Bowl Championships.

John Elway, the Broncos executive, said consistently from the end of the season that he would consider any option and every option to use the team's quarterback challenges. The Broncos were used to cut four different starters for the past two seasons and to cut Paxton Lynch, their first round pick in 2016, last summer.
