The Ravens agreed to trade quarterback Joe Flacco to the Broncos on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

ESPN said the trade can not take place until March 13 when the new NFL league year begins.

The two teams are unable to comment about the terms of the deal until March 13th, so we'll know more then what the Ravens got in return for Flacco. Flacco is 34 years old and coming off a season in which he lost his starting job to Lamar Jackson.

Jackson went 6-1 as a starter, and led the Ravens to the AFC North Divisional crown with a 10-6 record.

Raptors to sign veteran PG Lin
He's averaged almost 20 minutes per game, scoring 10.7 points, dishing 3.5 assists and hauling down 2.3 rebounds per contest. Jeremy Lin is apparently ready to hit the court with the Toronto Raptors , even if he has yet to sign his new contract.

Flacco was the starter for most of his 11 seasons with the team before a hip injury sidelined him after nine games this season. Flacco is set to make $18 million in 2019.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Broncos will send back a mid-round pick for Flacco.

Flacco was voted the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII in 2012. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins are among the teams expected to add new quarterbacks.
