Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens throws a pass against the Denver Broncos on September 23, 2018 in Baltimore.

The Baltimore Ravens have reached a tentative trade agreement with the Denver Broncos to send former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco to Denver, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The two teams have reportedly agreed to the trade in principle, but the deal can not be processed until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13.

The trade means the Broncos are moving on from quarterback Case Keenum, who started for the team last season after signing a two-year, $36 million contract in free agency. The team was 3-5 at the time. When the deal is completed, it likely will be for a midround pick, sources told ESPN.

The 34-year-old was the MVP when he led the Ravens to victory in 2013's Super Bowl XLVII. Since then, Denver has drafted Brock Osweiler (2012 second round), Paxton Lynch (2016 first round) and three seventh-round picks, per SB Nation. The Broncos went 6-10 in the 2018 season and missed the playoffs.

Flacco was the starter for most of his 11 seasons with the team before a hip injury sidelined him after nine games this season. In his career he's thrown for more 38,245 passing yards and 212 touchdowns.
