After being without a significant interest from any team this year, Joe Flacco has found a new home in the AFC North. The Browns are set to sign the former Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl XLVII MVP on Monday, following an impressive workout session with the team on Friday.
Flacco, who is 38 years old, has been eager to play again this season and had not received any major offers until last week. The Bengals showed no interest after learning that their own quarterback Joe Burrow would miss the rest of the season.
The Browns are currently relying on Dorian Thomson-Robinson as their starter and P.J. Walker as their backup. With Deshaun Watson out for the rest of the year due to knee and shoulder injuries, the team is looking for additional options at quarterback.
As a first-round pick in 2008, Flacco has previously played for several teams including the Ravens, Broncos, Jets, and Eagles. His return to the AFC North could potentially have a significant impact on the division.
