On Wednesday morning, the Baltimore Ravens agreed in principle to a deal with the Denver Broncos that would send quarterback Joe Flacco to Denver in return for a mid-round pick.

Any reported trade - and the corresponding compensation - can not be made official until the new year begins on March 13.

The move opens the door for the Broncos to possibly trade or release Case Keenum, whose performance last season as starting quarterback was viewed generally as a disappointment. With their acquisition of Joe Flacco, it appears unlikely the Broncos will be chasing a quarterback in the draft.

In nine games previous year, Flacco threw for 2,464 yards, completing 232 of 379 attempts for 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. The Broncos can try to trade Keenum, but with a $21 million total cap number and $7 million in guarantees for the upcoming season, that might make it hard to find trade partners. According to Over The Cap, Flacco has a cap number of $26.5 million this year, $28.25 next year and $24.25 in 2021. ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the information.

However, his productivity has dropped in recent seasons.

Former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco could be donning a Broncos jersey next season. He also threw for 3,890 yards and 18 touchdowns. It doesn't get them any closer to solving their long-term quarterback problem, but outside of lucking out on Manning, Elway hasn't proven able to do that, anyway.

The demand at the position is one reason Denver pounced on Flacco.

This past season, it became painfully obvious that the team could have won more games if it had better play at the most important position. The Ravens were 4-5 under Flacco before Jackson led them on a 6-1 tear to earn a playoff appearance.

A good nugget here from Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly, providing some breadcrumbs to follow: Elway apparently told Missouri quarterback Drew Lock that he'd be a top-10 pick at the Senior Bowl.
