ESTShareTweetShareShareRanking trade candidates for QB Joe FlaccoTommy Gilligan-USA TODAY SportsAfter much speculation surrounding the quarterback position in Baltimore during the season, which resurfaced again briefly in the playoffs, the Ravens have made their intentions clear: Joe Flacco’s days in Charm City are over. When Lamar Jackson seized the starting job midseason after Flacco suffered a hip injury, it quickly became more apparent that Flacco had played his last season with the Ravens. In anointing Jackson as the future following the Ravens playoff defeat to the Chargers, John Harbaugh shut the door on any potential return for Flacco. “Lamar Jackson is our quarterback going forward,” Harbaugh said. “Joe is going to have a market. I’m going to be in Joe’s corner unless we play him.”The key term here is “market”, as it hints that the Ravens will look to trade Flacco rather than simply release him. This was reported earlier in the season by Ian Rapoport, and it makes sense for both parties. Flacco can choose his preferred destinations and the Ravens can retain assets in return for him. Exactly what the market for Flacco looks like is unclear, but there’s reason to believe the Ravens could net a solid haul in exchange for him. Take the Alex Smith trade for example, which occurred last season. The Redskins traded a third-round pick and Kendall Fuller, a talented cornerback, to the Chiefs to acquire Smith. While Smith and Flacco are different players, they’re both veteran quarterbacks with a track record of winning. The fact that Flacco has won a super bowl could make his value even higher than Smith’s was this past offseason, too. In his first press conference as the new general manager last week, Eric DeCosta called the situation with Flacco an “ongoing process” and suggested that looking to move Flacco is not amongst the organization’s top priorities right now. Given the number of free agents on the roster and the need for scouting in the upcoming draft, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, the Ravens will clearly begin looking to move Flacco at some point this offseason. Cap space will be a significant deciding factor in any trade discussions involving Flacco. While he’s long been in the conversation amongst the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league, Flacco is only owed $18.5 million next season, which ranks 23rd at the position. With this in mind Alex Lewis Jersey 2019 , where could Flacco end up? Below is a list of teams who could be potential trade partners for the Ravens to deal with, ranked in terms of least likely to most likely. 5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Buccaneers appeared like a far more likely destination during the regular season, when they jostled between Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starting quarterback. Bruce Arians, Tampa Bay’s new head coach, appears committed to Winston going forward. Winston has done little to improve since entering the league, however, and the Buccaneers have offensive weapons that would compliment Flacco well. Still, Tampa Bay would have to do some cap wiggling to take on Flacco’s contract. There’s an outside shot that the Buccaneers would look to acquire Flacco to challenge Winston in the offseason, but it’s likely more of a longshot than anything. 4) Jacksonville Jaguars The Jaguars took a significant step back in 2018 after making it to the AFC championship game two seasons ago. This was in large part due to poor quarterback play, as Blake Bortles struggled and was replaced by Cody Kessler midseason. Kessler isn’t a long-term solution and the Jaguars appear ready to move on from Bortles after an underwhelming tenure. Flacco would be a logical target for them given their dire need at the position. Jacksonville boasts a championship-caliber defense and solid collection of running backs, two elements Flacco has thrived with in the past. The reason they come in lower on this list is simple: cap space. Jacksonville currently has just over $4 million dollars in cap space, well below the $18.5 million threshold that Flacco’s contract demands. In order to trade for him, Jacksonville would be forced to move several pieces around, many of which would be on defense. They may opt to select a quarterback with the 7th overall pick in the draft, too. 3) Miami DolphinsAfter six years with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, the Dolphins appear ready to move on this offseason. Tannehill has been hampered by injuries in recent years and Miami, led by new head coach Brian Flores, is looking to get back into the postseason. Could the Dolphins look to pair a rookie head coach with a veteran, experienced signal caller? It’s definitely possible Blue Alex Lewis Jersey , and Miami would be a solid spot for Flacco to land. Like the Jaguars, the Dolphins could look to draft a quarterback early in April and Flacco would be a veteran presence for him to learn behind. Miami has just over $12 million dollars in cap space, so they would have to shed some salary to cede way for Flacco’s contract. Given their need at the position, however, they’d likely be willing to make the required moves. In order to separate themselves from the Jets and Bills in the AFC East, and even potentially challenge the defending champion Patriots, the Dolphins need a change at quarterback. Flacco could help them become a postseason contender. 2) Denver BroncosThe Broncos are in an interesting spot. Since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season, their quarterback depth chart has been that of a revolving door. Failed experiments like Trevor Simien and Brock Osweiler ceded way for Case Keenum, who Denver signed to a two-year contract this past offseason. In his first season in Denver, Keenum completed 62.3% of his passes while throwing for 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. While these numbers aren’t terrible, Keenum struggled with inconsistency throughout the season. Could Flacco help them end a three-year postseason drought? Flacco’s play style meshes well with the high-altitude, cold weather climate of Denver, and the Broncos have more than enough cap space to take on his contract. Denver has a talented defense and capable offensive weapons like Emmanuel Sanders and Phillip Lindsay. How content they are with Keenum at quarterback is unknown, but if they are looking to move in a different direction, Flacco is a viable option and they represent a capable trade destination. 1) Washington RedskinsAfter trading for Alex Smith last summer and signing him to a 4-year, $94 million dollar contract White James Hurst Jersey , not many expected the Redskins to be looking for a quarterback again this offseason. However, Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury midseason and complications during surgery that have his playing status not only up in the air for next year, but for his career going forward. Colt McCoy, the Redskins primary backup, is also recovering from a leg injury. McCoy or Josh Johnson are set to compete for the starting job next season, and Flacco would represent an upgrade over both. Washington can take on his contract and trading for Flacco makes sense for both parties. The Redskins are in dire need of a quarterback and Flacco would not be forced to relocate more than a short move down I-95. The Redskins are reportedly looking to draft a quarterback this year and Flacco would make for a suitable stopgap option while said rookie develops. Baltimore would avoid having to play against Flacco should be traded to Washington, as well. Honorable Mentions: Oakland Raiders, New York Giants The Week 4 NFL slate brings a primetime showdown in Pittsburgh between traditional AFC North rivals. The improved Ravens are aiming to snap a three game losing streak against the resurgent Steelers. Mike Tomlin holds a slim 12-to-11 edge over John Harbaugh in head-to-head meetings.After both teams earned impressive victories in Week 3, Pittsburgh is currently a 3-point home favorite and oddsmakers expect a high scoring affair with the point total set at 51. Trends favor Pittsburgh, the Steelers have won 13 of their last 19 games at home, 24 of 32 as a favorite and are 11-1 within the division recently. Furthermore, Baltimore is just 3-10 as an underdog and 6-10 on the road since 2016.With a couple marquee players unavailable due to off-the-field issues and several other key contributors questionable due to injury, these five key matchups will determine who emerges from this grudge match victorious:DT Brandon Williams vs C Maurkice PounceySeveral Ravens run defenders will be playing through injury, if they suit up at all. The defense needs their well paid nose tackle to elevate his game in order to contain back James Conner. Fortunately, many of Williams’ best games have come against the arch rival Steelers.Pouncey, a six-time Pro Bowler, is the rock in the middle of their stout offensive line. If Williams can hold his ground against Maurkice and guard Ramon Foster, it will allow rookie linebacker Kenny Young to shoot gaps and make plays in the backfield. Perhaps more importantly, stuffing the Steelers rushing attack will enable the Ravens to devote more players into coverage against a dangerous receiving corps. LT Ronnie Stanley vs OLB Bud DupreeStanley bounced back in a big way against Von Miller and company following a poor outing against the Bengals. Still dinged up with knee and elbow injuries James Hurst Jersey 2019 , the team’s most irreplaceable player revealed his resilience. Matchups such as this are exactly the reason why Baltimore spent a top-6 overall draft pick on their blindside protector.Pittsburgh will blitz with all four of their linebackers and both defensive ends Cam Hayward and Stephon Tuitt can get after the quarterback. Dupree has also been an impact player thus far with five hits on the quarterback, two sacks, two pass deflections, an interception and a forced fumble. The Ravens need Stanley to anchor their pass protection against a Steelers defense that is currently tied for the second most sacks in the NFL.CB Brandon Carr vs WR JuJu Smith-SchusterFollowing a strong start to the season, Brandon Carr turned in perhaps his worst performance as a Raven last week against the Broncos. Demaryius Thomas and Courtland Sutton beat his coverage throughout the second half. Carr allowed completions on seven of eight targets for a total of 88-yards. Meanwhile, Smith-Schuster has emerged as Ben Roethlisberger’s go-to man so far this season. The second-year wideout has already amassed over 350-yards on 27 receptions in 2018. Nonetheless, with Jimmy Smith serving a suspension and Marlon Humphrey expected to mark Antonio Brown on most plays, the Ravens will be forced to trust their veteran corner against JuJu. Minimizing chunk plays will be the main objective.WR John Brown vs CB Joe Haden‘Smokey’ has been the linchpin behind the Ravens passing offense’s improvement. He provides a vertical element that opens up the middle of the field for Joe Flacco and his 12-222-2 stat line includes multiple highlight reel contested catches. Baltimore will probably need to connect on a couple deep shots to their top playmaker in order to keep pace on the road.Starting corner Artie Burns struggled to contain the Bucs receivers last week, but top cover man Joe Haden had a successful return from injury. However, the former top-10 overall draft pick does not have the top speed necessary to chase Brown. Flacco should be able to effectively spray the ball around to his other receivers and tight ends, especially without Ryan Shazier roaming the middle of the field. Still, with the Steelers likely to to stack the box and stonewall Baltimore’s rushing attack, they could certainly use some splash plays from Brown.S Tony Jefferson vs TE Vance McDonaldJefferson has fared much better under new coordinator Don Martindale than he did in 2017. Last week, Tony blanketed Jake Butt on a crucial fourth-down stop. While coverage will never be his specialty, Tony has proven he the skills to limit middle-tier tight ends.McDonald has been considered a major disappointment since the Steelers acquired him from the 49ers. However, he just turned in his best game of his tenure on Monday night, including a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown that displayed his athletic gifts. Baltimore’s safeties must stay behind the Steelers tertiary receiving threat, especially when Roethlisberger improvises.
