The Facts: NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Flacco's situation regarding his future (and his financial impact) should be resolved Wednesday, likely leading to a release, per a source informed of the situation.
Diehards Line: Flacco is still on the contract he signed with the Ravens back in 201. That contract calls for Flacco to make $20.25 million in 2020, accounting for $23.65 million of Denver's cap. If the Broncos wanted to move on from him, they'd have to carry a dead cap of $13.6 million, no small figure but also not quite an albatross. If that's the case, Flacco will hit the open market as a backup option at the position, no longer carrying the financial burden that might have scared teams off in past offseasons. We should expect him to attract some interest, even if he hasn't been in the spotlight for a while now thanks to a neck injury that cut his 2019 season short.
