How Joe Flacco's trade affects Ravens 2019 salary cap

Joe Flacco is headed to the Broncos in a trade that can become official March 13

Joe Flacco is headed to the Broncos in a trade that can become official March 13

NFL trades can become official when the new league year begins March 13.

The teams are prohibited from commenting on the deal or the terms. But from the day he arrived in Baltimore as a newly-minted first-round pick to his final moment as a Raven, Flacco was always himself.

The agreement means that Baltimore is officially committing to Lamar Jackson as their quarterback. However, they will carry $16 million in dead money on their 2019 cap.

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

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos finished the season at 6-10 behind veteran QB Case Keenum, who is due $18 million for 2019 with $7 million of that fully guaranteed.

There will be plenty of debate over Flacco's legacy in Baltimore, but he did lead the team to a Super Bowl title in 2012 with one of the best four-game stretches of quarterbacking that we've seen in the playoffs. He is to be paid $18.5 million next season, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021.

Flacco, 34, was injured during the 2018 season with Baltimore after nine games (which included a 27-14 win over the Broncos in Week 3).

Elway hasn't had success bringing quarterbacks to Denver since Peyton Manning chose the Broncos.
