Denver Broncos: Joe Flacco’s Age
The last time the Broncos brought in a veteran quarterback who was castaway from another team, it worked out well. But Joe Flacco isn’t Peyton Manning. He’s also 34, suffered a hip injury last season, and may not have quite the same arm strength he had earlier in his career.
That’s not to say the Broncos weren’t smart to take a chance on him. But there was some risk to the move because the Broncos can’t be completely sure how much Flacco has left in the tank at his age. If it doesn’t work out, it could be another long season in Denver, even if the Broncos have a defense that still has top-10 potential.
