The two teams cannot officially process the trade until the new league year starts on Wednesday, Mar. 13. There is no report of what the Broncos will be giving the Ravens in return for Flacco since it is against NFL rules to discuss those terms publically until the new league year begins.
Flacco has spent his entire 11-year career in Baltimore, where he has gathered a 96-67 record as the starting QB, along with one Super Bowl title and a Super Bowl MVP award in 2012. Flacco played nine games this past season before missing time because of a hip injury and eventually losing his starting job to rookie Lamar Jackson, who the Ravens drafted in the first round in 2018.
