What is up next for the Denver Broncos after they traded for Joe Flacco? Are they out on drafting a quarterback? What about Case Keenum?
The Denver Broncos are getting their ducks in a row early this offseason, and they’re making another major change at the quarterback position. Multiple major media reports indicate the Broncos are set to acquire Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.
There are a lot of questions to be answered now that this news is out there.
How did the Broncos reach the conclusion that Flacco was the right guy for this particular job? How much money is he going to make? What happens with Case Keenum? Will the Broncos still look at drafting a quarterback?
We’re going to explore all of these questions and we now certainly have a lot to talk about. While Flacco has not been a ‘win now’ quarterback for a few years, this move would seem to indicate the Broncos are confident they can put together a competitive roster and that Flacco can help elevate them in a way Case Keenum couldn’t.
Flacco was sharp in a victory over the Broncos in Baltimore early last season, so he can still play, but he’s been battling some injury issues and was “Wally Pipped” last year by Lamar Jackson when his injuries forced him to miss some games.
Let’s take a look at the aftermath of this trade and what it could possibly mean for the Broncos this season.
