Jets reportedly sign Joe Flacco to one-year deal

It appears the New York Jets have an elite backup quarterback.

On Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported former Baltimore Ravens starting QB and Super Bowl XLVII Most Valuable Player Joe Flacco was putting pen to paper on a one-year deal with the New York Jets:

Flacco started for the Ravens from 2008 through 2018, but he lost his job to injury and then to standout rookie and 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson. Baltimore traded Flacco to the Broncos in February 2019, and he made eight total appearances for Denver before a neck injury that required offseason surgery prematurely ended his campaign. 

Schefter added that the Jets expect Flacco will be ready to play come September: 

The 35-year-old will likely enter training camp second on the Gang Green depth chart behind third-year pro Sam Darnold. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
