Even after the release of Andy Dalton by the Cincinnati Bengals, there’s not a lot of top-end talent on the free-agent market at quarterback.
This seems to suggest that former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco will ultimately latch on with a team despite recent regression and injury issues. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, multiple teams have shown interest in the 35-year-old signal caller.
Flacco started only eight games with the Denver Broncos a season ago, his first with the team, before suffering a neck injury. He threw just six touchdowns compared to five interceptions in the process.
The former first-round pick will likely be brought on to be a backup. There’s no real starting quarterback jobs available at this point in free agency.
A 12-year NFL veteran, Flacco has thrown for north of 40,000 yards with 218 touchdowns and 141 interceptions throughout his career. He earned the Super Bowl XLVII MVP in Baltimore’s dramatic win over the San Francisco 49ers following the 2012 season.
