Since the new National Football League season doesn't officially begin until March 13, the teams aren't able to release the full details of the deal.

Keenum is still under contract through 2019, and Flacco possibly solves any immediate need the Broncos have at the position.

Manning's swan song in 2015 wasn't pretty, though Denver's defense did enough to bring the Broncos their third Super Bowl championship. Will the Broncos still look at drafting a quarterback?

Baltimore went 4-5 with Flacco as the starter last season.

The Ravens drafted Flacco with the 18th-overall pick in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Hip and back injuries were concerns for Flacco in recent seasons.

With Murray, Haskins and Lock out there, which teams will settle for a free-agent bet? The following year, Siemian battled with the returning Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, but was the only Broncos quarterback to win a game.

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

The Broncos had three options for the quarterback position this off-season: draft a young stud, stick with Case Keenum, or trade for a veteran. He completed 365 of 586 passes for 3,890 yards with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Keenum regressed significantly in 2018, however, and it became clear that the Broncos needed to prioritize landing a quarterback of the future in the offseason. 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.

Kevin Hogan After Chad Kelly's release, the Broncos added Kelly to serve as Keenum's backup.

The quarterback play in Denver last season wasn't exactly stellar.

According to multiple reports, the Ravens have agreed to a deal with the Broncos that will send the 34-year-old quarterback to Denver in exchange for a fourth-round pick in this year's draft.

The rise of Lamar Jackson in Baltimore made Flacco's fate seem certain: He would either be waived or dealt.
