Joe Flacco has had a very interesting career in the NFL although it hasn’t always been extremely glamorous. Flacco was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens back in 2008 and eventually became a star quarterback where he won a Super Bowl in 2013. After receiving a massive contract, Flacco hit a wall and was unable to give the Ravens the results they were truly hoping for. Last year, Flacco was traded to the Denver Broncos where he had a very weak season and found himself without a job.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Flacco is about to redeem himself as he was just given a contract with the New York Jets. This is a one-year deal and the Jets fully expect Flacco to become the back-up to Sam Darnold this season.
The Jets didn’t have a lot of depth at the QB position last season so having Flacco on the team will certainly give them some breathing room. Regardless of how solid the move is, fans had a lot to say about it and took to social media with some pretty funny memes and hot takes.
