Joe Flacco is all set to join a new team for the 2024-25 season. The free agent, who was released by the New York Jets after the 2022-23 season, joined the Cleveland Browns as a result of their quarterback crisis. The QB showed immense perseverance last season and led his team to the playoffs. His performance was well-appreciated by the NFL and he won the ‘Comeback Player of the Year Award’ over Damar Hamlin.

After the 2023-24 season ended, speculations started looming about whether Flacco would stay with the Cleveland Browns. Nevertheless, ESPN journalist Tony Grosi revealed that the quarterback was preferring to stay with the Browns.

However, the quarterback seems to have had enough. He was waiting and finally, with the deal with the Indianapolis Colts, his wait is over. Flacco will be an Indianapolis Colts player in the coming season. However, his starting position is not secure. As things stand right now, Anthony Richardson is the starting quarterback for the Colts and Flacco will be the backup.

As per reports, Flacco’s departure was almost sure from the Browns. The team did not offer him any contract as they were sure about Deshaun Watson as their starter. The quarterback’s performance failed to create an impact on the minds of the management.
