New Broncos coach Vic Fangio spent one season in Baltimore while Flacco was with the team.
After just one season with the Broncos, it appears that Case Keenum is already the odd man out in Denver following the team's surprising trade for Joe Flacco on Wednesday. He's due $16 million this season, but the Broncos can trade or release him for an $8 million salary cap penalty.
Denver have not made the playoffs for three straight years since winning the Super Bowl in February 2016. The Broncos have an extra fourth-round pick from the Demaryius Thomas trade. He completed 61.2 percent of his passes and threw for 12 touchdowns with six interceptions through nine games in 2018, with the team registering a 4-5 record in his starts, before Jackson went 6-1. So maybe it's a series of short-term fixes and a lot of hope.
After the Minnesota Vikings chose to move on from Case Keenum in 2018, the veteran quarterback ended up finding a new home with the Denver Broncos.

With the tenth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have the opportunity to pick up several defensive candidates. That adds more financial obligation to the position, and a short-term bottleneck that would likely prevent the rookie from gaining meaningful reps in game situations.
As the season approaches, we'll have more on National Football League futures changes, and it should become clear whether or not Flacco ignites a fire within the Denver faithful.
The attendant issue is that since then, Flacco hasn't reached those heights almost enough to allow the assumption that he'll ever do so again.
