The Baltimore Ravens agreed in principle to trade Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos in exchange for what is reportedly a fourth-round draft pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
The move comes as no surprise as the team makes their transition to 22-year-old Lamar Jackson as its next franchise quarterback. The move will create $10.5 million in salary cap space for the Ravens but will also include the team eating $16 million in dead money.
The NFL season ended a little over a week ago at the conclusion of Super Bowl LIII and that only means one thing: six months filled with useless mock drafts and plenty of childish drama.
The ambiguous tweets and Instagram posts from soon-to-be free agents have already started while teams and media outlets continue to stir the pot with the customary eyeball emoji. Just like many of you, I am fed up with the social media culture that surrounds professional athletes. 99% of the time these social media antics mean absolutely nothing but it does give major networks an excuse to cover the NFL year round.
