And while he can not officially be traded until the new league year begins March 13, Flacco will become John Elway's next quarterback solution.

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

Here is a list of every quarterback to join the Broncos since Manning was signed.

But the receiving corps is a big question mark, given the trade of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders's season-ending Achilles tear. The Broncos went 6-10 in the 2018 season and missed the playoffs.

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. He has started all 16 games in nine of his 11 seasons as a professional. Flacco was the Ravens opening day starter, but in Week 9 he suffered a hip injury and Jackson snagged the starting job.

With Murray, Haskins and Lock out there, which teams will settle for a free-agent bet?

The Broncos in recent years have tried Keenum, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch at quarterback.

Confirming Broncos have agreement on trade for Baltimore QB Joe Flacco.

New Broncos coach Vic Fangio was in Baltimore for Flacco's first two seasons, so he knows what he'll be getting. He was the 18th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

The Broncos have Case Keenum under contract for 2019 at $21 million.

Kevin Hogan After Chad Kelly's release, the Broncos added Kelly to serve as Keenum's backup. While Denver general manager John Elway could wade into quarterback waters to find Flacco's eventual replacement, that doesn't jibe with his mindset.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the Ravens and Broncos have an agreement in principle, but that the trade can not be processed until the new NFL league year begins on March 13.

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