Browns Face Potential Loss of Joe Flacco Following Latest Move


Joe Flacco’s Future with the Cleveland Browns

After being named the starter for the rest of the season for the Cleveland Browns, veteran quarterback Joe Flacco has yet to be signed to the active roster. Flacco reverted back to the practice squad on Monday, making him eligible to sign with any team. While it’s an unlikely situation, considering all the goodwill and knowledge Flacco has gained during his three weeks in Cleveland, NFL insider Jason La Canfora laid out the possibility in a recent tweet.

Potential Opportunities for Joe Flacco

There are several quarterback openings around the league due to injuries, particularly in the AFC North. With Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow out for the season and Pittsburgh Steelers starter Kenny Pickett also set to miss time, there are opportunities for Flacco elsewhere. However, both Flacco and the Browns likely have an understanding that he will remain in Cleveland, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Flacco intends to do just that.

Coach Stefanski’s Reassurance

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski addressed the situation, reassuring that they have a plan in place regarding Flacco’s future with the team. Despite the uncertainty, Stefanski made it clear that they are not concerned about the situation and that “it’ll all work out.”

Flacco’s Stellar Performance

Flacco’s performance during his second start in Cleveland has sparked interest from other teams, with 311 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Stefanski confirmed after the game that Flacco would be the starter for the rest of the season. Flacco’s impressive performance and solid understanding of the team’s system and players have solidified his role as the starter for the foreseeable future.

Flacco’s Perspective

For Flacco, his recent success in Cleveland has been a welcome change. After signing with the team, there was no guarantee he would see significant playing time. However, he stepped up when called upon and delivered a stellar performance, earning the respect and confidence of his teammates and coaching staff.

Looking Ahead

Flacco has demonstrated his capability as a top-tier quarterback, contributing 565 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions in just two games. With a quarterback rating of 83.8, it’s clear that he has found his rhythm in Cleveland. As the Browns continue their playoff push, Flacco’s experience and leadership will undoubtedly be invaluable as they strive for success in the remainder of the season.

Overall, the future looks bright for Joe Flacco in Cleveland. His impressive performance and the team’s confidence in him solidify his position as the starting quarterback. As he continues to lead the team, fans can expect to see a competitive and determined player guiding the Browns to victory.
