Free-agent QB Joe Flacco (Broncos) wants to keep playing, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Thursday, March 19.
Huddle Up: Flacco doesn't have much fantasy appeal left at this point after totaling 18 touchdowns against 11 interceptions over those 17 combined games in 2018 and 2019. He'd be a low-end QB2 if given a starting opportunity.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) on THursday, March 19 was informed that he is being waived with a failed physical designation, per source.
Huddle Up: Flacco, who turned 35 in January, averaged only 227.8 passing yards per game in 2019 with six total TDs and five interceptions in eight starts in Denver, and it's becoming clear that his days as an NFL starter are past.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) might need offseason surgery to deal with the herniated disc in his neck and has said he'd be open to remaining with the team a backup, but new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said there's much remaining up in the air with Flacco. 'I don't know, and I wouldn't get into that in this setting,' Shurmur said Thursday, Feb. 6. 'I'm just getting to know the players, the ones that were here a year ago, and I'm not sure who's going to be here moving forward. I think (Flacco has) had an outstanding career. I thought he did a lot of good things last year, but unfortunately he was injured and couldn't finish the season.'
Huddle Up: If Flacco, 35, isn't at the end of his run as an NFL starter, it's awfully close, and don't be surprised if the Broncos cut him loose this offseason and opt for a cheaper backup.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco (neck) and LB Corey Nelson (bicep) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: Barring an unlikely return from IR in December, Flacco's season is done. This leaves the untested Brandon Allen as the team's starting QB for the foreseeable future with rookie Brett Rypien serving as the backup until second-round pick Drew Lock is ready to come off IR himself.
