The NFL offseason is underway and the sparks are already flying.
The Denver Broncos have agreed to trade for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco once the league year begins.

Trade cannot be processed until new NFL league year begins Wednesday, March 13. Teams prohibited from commenting on deal or terms surrounding it.
Thus begins the domino’s that will determine if the Arizona Cardinals are able to trade out of the top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
As teams begin to fill their quarterback needs, there becomes less and less competition for the top end quarterback prospects, which also means there will be less need to move up for one.
The Cardinals with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will likely only be able to get the kings ransom they are looking for if a team falls in love with a quarterback.
That means multiple first round picks to move out of that slot. The Broncos were on the edge of where most fans feel comfortable trading back to, at 10, and now that is one less team in the top ten who needs a quarterback.
We will see how this unfolds, but this also asks the questions... Is Case Keenum going to be released and would Arizona be interested in bringing in the Kliff Kingsbury disciple as Josh Rosen’s backup?
