Joe Flacco Signs With The New York Jets, Fans React

Joe Flacco is headed to NY.

Flacco was rewarded by the Ravens by becoming the highest-paid quarterback in National Football League history at the time with a six-year contract worth $120.6 million.

Flacco, who had neck surgery last month and is expected to be out until September 1 will compete for the backup job behind Sam Darnold.

Flacco will earn $1.5 million with a chance to make an additional $3 million in incentives, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Douglas was a key member of the Ravens' personnel department who fought for Flacco during a draft process that eventually led to Baltimore taking Flacco with the 18th-overall pick, per NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah. He finished the season on injured reserve after suffering a neck injury in Week 8.

Less than a month after undergoing a neck procedure, Joe Flacco has found employment. He was the one who discovered him and convinced the Ravens to draft the Pittsburgh transfer out of the University of DE in the first round of the 2008 draft. Flacco is far from the Super Bowl MVP he was back in 2013, but he might still have enough in the tank to help the Jets in a time of need.

With Flacco in the mix, the Jets suddenly have a crowded quarterbacks room that includes Darnold, David Fales, Mike White and James Morgan, who was drafted in the fourth round as a developmental arm out of FIU.
