Broncos just informed former Super-Bowl MVP Joe Flacco that he is being waived with a failed physical designation, per source.
Flacco now joins a group of free-agent QBs looking for work.
Joe Flacco missed the final eight games of the 2019 season due to a neck injury, commencing the Drew Lock era in Denver. A starting job may not be in the cards for Flacco, but could find work as a veteran backup for a team with a young signal-caller.
DEN QB Joe Flacco - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 at Indianapolis Colts
In the embarrassing home loss to the Chiefs last Thursday, Joe Flacco was sacked a career-high eight times. The Kansas City defense stuffed the line, forcing the Denver QB to beat them, and it worked. Flacco threw for just 213 yards, with no TDs – the third time this season he’s failed to toss for a score. In the past three weeks, he’s averaging only 191 yards through the air and is now without Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos will be at Indy on Sunday against the No. 20 pass defense, so Flacco remains a low QB2 option.
