Report: Flacco passes physical, trade to Denver on track

Quarterback Joe Flacco has passed his physical with the Denver Broncos, Sports Illustrated reported Monday. That means Denver's trade for Flacco, who has spent his entire 11-year career with Baltimore, can be completed when the new league year starts on March 13.

Denver is set to send a fourth-round draft pick to Baltimore. Flacco, 34, was the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 and was the Ravens' starter from 2008 until a hip injury he suffered last season. Rookie first-round pick Lamar Jackson took over for Flacco in Week 9 and didn't relinquish the starting role.

In his career, Flacco has completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 38,245 yards and 212 touchdowns. A Delaware product, he was the 18th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. In March 2016, he signed a three-year, $66.4 million contract extension that runs through the 2021 season. That will need to be re-worked, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Ravens must carry Flacco's $26.5 million cap hit until June 1, per the NFL Network.
