Flacco last started for Baltimore on Nov. 4.
The Ravens are expected to "move on" from backup quarterback Joe Flacco after the 2018 season, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Flacco was Baltimore's starting quarterback for 10 seasons before being replaced by rookie Lamar Jackson in November.
Flacco will either be released or traded by the Ravens. He is owed $18.5 million in 2019.
The Super Bowl XLVII MVP is likely to land a starting role in 2019 outside of Baltimore, per Rapoport. Flacco went 4–5 as a starter this season, throwing for 2,465 yards and 12 touchdowns. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh complimented Flacco on Sunday, telling the media, "Joe’s going to have a market, a lot of teams are going to want Joe."
