Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is heading West.

The Ravens agreed to trade quarterback Joe Flacco to the Broncos on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The trade can not be consummated until the NFL league year begins on March 13th. Schefter noted that, because of this, teams are now prohibited from commenting on the terms of the deal. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Denver will send a mid-round draft pick to the Ravens in return for Flacco. He is due $18 million in 2019, with just $7 million guaranteed. When the deal is completed, the Ravens will save $10.5 million in cap space.

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

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. Denver had Case Keenum under center in 2018. Former Broncos executive Gary Kubiak also was a noted Flacco fan, and his opinions were a strong starting point to selling Denver on the deal. His contract carries cap hits of $18.50 million for 2019, $20.25 million in 2020 and $24.25 million in 2021.

He was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2008.
