    Adam Schefter says it is so. Traded. I have no details

    If it is so;

    Case Keenum sits
    Joe handed the job
    Ravens down the rabbit hole

    The first QB taken off of the carousel.

    That is something, couldn't be much closer in terms of production.

    wow glad cards didn't overpay for overhyped Keenum.... bad when you have to sign Flacco

    but atleast Elway struck gold once with manning to get the Broncos a ring

    Flacco doesn't seem like an upgrade but he is a veteran who doesn't panic. Change of scenario might be the spark. This is probably a one to two season hail mary.

    Haven't the Ravens been awful at WR for years? Broncos have some weapons, at least.

    great trade. Flacco is a great fit at denver and competition should help Keenum as well. as long as elway didnt spend too much this was a great move

    Looks like Ravens are all-in with L Jackson and might be in the hunt to draft Murray as Jackson's backup in their offensive system. Does Balt need to trade up to secure Murray?

    Not say it will definitely happen, but it might open the door for a Cardinal trade-down with the Ravens or another suitor.

    Keenum is getting $21 million cap hit ($10 million cap hit if cut)
    Flacco has a cap hit of $18 million.
