Broncos QB Depth Chart After Joe Flacco Trade Creates Questions

Joe Flacco talks on the phone on the sidelines in the fourth quarter in their NFL football game against the Denver Broncos in Denver

It is Lamar Jackson's team now in Baltimore and according to Adam Schefter, the Broncos and Ravens have agreed to a trade. This is bad news for New Orleans Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is set to become a free agent when the new league fiscal year begins on March 13.

The decision to trade Flacco shows the team's commitment to quarterback Lamar Jackson who was the team's first round pick past year.

After the Minnesota Vikings chose to move on from Case Keenum in 2018, the veteran quarterback ended up finding a new home with the Denver Broncos. Considering the wealth of offensive weapons Denver has as well as a still solid defense, it makes sense Flacco would have wanted to go to the Broncos to try and resurrect his career. He finished last season with 2,465 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Let's take a look at the aftermath of this trade and what it could possibly mean for the Broncos this season. The rest is forever part of Broncos lore: four consecutive division titles in Manning's four seasons, two Super Bowl trips and a Super Bowl 50 win in Manning's final game. The Ravens will absorb a $16 million cap penalty for trading Flacco.

In exchange for Flacco, the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, the Broncos are giving up a 2019 fourth-round pick, according to a report from Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer. And Flacco has had back and hip troubles in recent seasons, so keeping Keenum is not off the table just yet. He reported when completed, the Ravens will likely get a mid-round pick. 2019 will be his 11th season in the NFL.

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.

There are multiple ways for Denver to get out of Flacco's deal down the line. The Ravens were 4-5 under Flacco before Jackson led them on a 6-1 tear to earn a playoff appearance.
