According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, veteran quarterback Joe Flacco has agreed to terms with the New York Jets on a one-year contract. The agreement is supposedly for $1.5 million, but with incentives, it may be worth up to $4.5 million.
This comes as a surprise to many since he decided to skip his retirement tour and try out for another season. However, it appears that he could use some more money now that he's turned 40 years old. He also wanted to play in a big market team so this fits right into the equation.
Flacco came back from an ACL tear to lead the Ravens to the playoffs last year. However, due to his age and the fact that he had one good season left in him, many believed that he wouldn't get much interest in free agency. But apparently, someone saw something they liked in him and gave him a chance to prove himself again.
He'll be the No. 2 quarterback behind Josh McCown this season and will be looking to show the Jets that he still has what it takes to be successful at this level. In addition to being able to throw the ball, he also knows the system well enough where he can help out if/when needed by McCown. He should provide the Jets with a quality backup while they search for their next franchise quarterback.
