Broncos To Shop Case Keenum

The Denver Broncos will shop quarterback Case Keenum on the trade market after agreeing to acquire Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, according to a source. Keenum is guaranteed $7 million this year. If they can't find a taker for him, they could release him, which would mean clearing up $11 million in salary cap space but absorbing $10 million in dead money. No matter which way this goes, Keenum will likely be playing elsewhere in 2019, but we'll have to wait and see if a team is desperate enough to use him as a starter. The soon-to-be 31-year-old threw for 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in his first and likely only season in Denver. He wasn't of much help to fantasy owners.

Steelers Won't Trade Antonio Brown Within Division

The Pittsburgh Steelers will not trade wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Ravens, Browns, Bengals or Patriots. Most teams are hesitant to trade a star player within their division, so this isn't a surprise. The Patriots continue to dominate the league, so it also makes sense why the Steelers wouldn't want to help them as they seek to boost a position of need this offseason. It seems inevitable that Brown will be playing for another team in 2019, and he's believed to want to play for the 49ers. Brown's fantasy value would probably remain the highest if he stayed in Pittsburgh, but the elite wideout will likely remain a high-end WR1 wherever he winds up.

Broncos Trading For Joe Flacco

The Denver Broncos agreed in principle on a trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday to acquire quarterback Joe Flacco, according to league sources. The trade can't officially be processed until the new NFL league year begins on March 13. When the deal is officially completed it will likely be for a mid-round pick. Baltimore will save $10.5 million in salary cap space with the move, but they will also carry $16 million in dead money in 2019. New Broncos head coach Vic Fangio was with Flacco for one season in Baltimore, so they have a short history together. The 34-year-old was benched in favor of rookie Lamar Jackson in Baltimore this year and has looked extremely mediocre in recent seasons. He's won a Super Bowl MVP, though, and is arguably a slight upgrade on Case Keenum, who is now likely to be released. Denver will try to win with the running game and defense, so Flacco will remain a mediocre QB2 target as he returns to a starting role with a new team.
