Last season, Flacco played in only eight games for the Denver Broncos until a neck injury cut his season short. In those eight games, the Broncos went a mere 2-6 and Flacco threw for 1,822 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.
The former Super Bowl MVP with the Baltimore Ravens turned 35 back in January.
