There’s little Lamar Jackson can do to lose his job earlier than the 2019 offseason. Jackson has confirmed sufficient promise as a passer and runner to take over at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens after a 22-10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16. The Ravens are seemingly a playoff group — Jackson is their franchise quarterback.
Which means Joe Flacco might be enjoying someplace else in 2019. However the place?
There isn’t a pure match for Flacco, who may show expensive with big dangers after a couple of shaky seasons. Regardless of his warts, he’s a Tremendous Bowl-winning quarterback, who will discover a residence. These are the almost definitely touchdown spots.
1. Denver Broncos: It will be a daring transfer to place Case Keenum and Flacco on the identical group in a quarterback battle. But when John Elway is determined — and that’s how he’s starting to look — then maybe he’ll give the dangerous transfer a spin. Elway may additionally reduce Keenum, who would carry $10 million in lifeless cap, to signal Flacco. Then — like so many groups on this listing — the Broncos may draft and develop one other quarterback behind Flacco.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars: The fear for the Jaguars can be that Flacco is Blake Bortles 2.zero. They actually aren’t that completely different as quarterbacks. Flacco has been unable to hold the Ravens lately — and he’s had loads of assistance on protection. The 2019 Jaguars may have a look at lot just like the 2018 Ravens from a roster building standpoint. Finally, the Jaguars may assume Flacco’s veteran presence might be sufficient to convey them again to the playoffs, the place Flacco traditionally thrives.
