Joe Flacco, the former Super Bowl XLVII MVP and Ravens quarterback, is set to make a comeback in the AFC North. On Monday, it was announced that he would be signing with the Browns’ practice squad after working out for the team on Friday. According to league sources, Flacco’s session impressed the Browns so much that they offered him a job.
Flacco, who is 38 years old, had been eager to play this season but had not received any significant interest until last week. The Bengals were not interested in him after learning that their quarterback Joe Burrow would miss the rest of the year.
The Browns currently have Dorian Thompson-Robinson as their starter and PJ Walker as their backup. With Deshaun Watson out for the rest of the year due to knee and shoulder injuries, the team was looking for additional options.
Flacco was a first-round pick in 2008 and has previously played for the Ravens, Broncos, Jets, and Eagles. His return to the AFC North could potentially impact the division.
