Flacco to the Colts

Joe Flacco enjoyed a highly impressive late-season re-emergence with the Browns in 2023, but Cleveland elected to add Jameis Winston as a backup quarterback for 2024. Flacco has found a new opportunity for next season, though.

The reigning Comeback Player of the Year has agreed to a one-year deal with the Colts, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He adds the contract is worth up to $8.7MM and includes $4.5MM guaranteed. Flacco will thus be able to meet his stated goal of continuing his career for at least one more season, while taking the place of Gardner Minshew as the Colts’ backup to Anthony Richardson. Adam Caplan of Pro Football Network reports the Flacco pact includes incentives for playing time, wins, a playoff berth and postseason victories totaling $3.7MM.

I really hope Richardson can stay healthy. Really want to watch that guy.


Dont have high hopes for richardson but excited to watch him (especially in the AFC)

Good backup insurance.

Now if TEN can get a QB this off season. That AFC South will go from the worst division in the NFL to arguably the best

He had some impressive moments pre-injury


The corpse of Flacco out here getting MILLIONS. Good for him.


Dude has made a shit ton of money for mostly mediocre play. The one super bowl run was pretty epic though.

Career passer rating is 84 and racked up just under 200 million bucks


Flacco never had much at WR.

As good of a GM as Ozzie Newsome was for a long time, he never really could put together a solid WR group.
