Don’t do it, Joe!
According to multiple reports, former Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII Champion and Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco will be working out for the Cleveland Browns.
The #Browns are hosting a QB workout this morning, and sources say former Super Bowl MVP and #Ravens QB Joe Flacco is among them. Flacco last played for the #Jets and has kept his mind open about a return.

Am told Joe Flacco is the only QB the #Browns are bringing in for a workout

Flacco, 38, looks to join his fourth team after playing for the Denver Broncos in 2019 and the New York Jets from 2020-2022. Since being traded from the Ravens, Flacco has posted respectable numbers for a backup quarterback, but the win/loss record in his 17 starts isn’t great (3-14).
He’s thrown for 4,075 yards and 20 touchdowns on 60.7% completion, with 11 interceptions. However, he’s been sacked 45 times in those 17 games and had 15 fumbles.
Above all else, it will be a painful sight for Ravens fans if Flacco ends up joining the Browns. Their former starter of more than a decade—the one who led them to the promised land and produced 25 game-winning drives as a Raven may be wearing a Browns jersey soon. It won’t sit right.
PS: This opens the door to one of my least favorite jokes in sports. Calling a player a “[TEAM] legend” when they play maybe a handful of games in a different uniform than they are known for.
Examples: Jerry Rice, “Seahawks Legend” | Emmitt Smith, “Cardinals Legend” | Tom Brady, “Buccaneers Legend”
