After working out for the Browns on Friday, Joe Flacco has signed with their practice squad. The 38-year-old quarterback had been eager to play this season but had not received any significant interest until last week. The Bengals showed no interest after learning that their quarterback Joe Burrow would miss the rest of the season.
The Browns, who are currently relying on Dorian Thomson-Robinson as the starter and P.J. Walker as the backup, have been looking for additional options since Deshaun Watson was ruled out for the rest of the year due to knee and shoulder injuries. Flacco, a first-round pick in 2008, has previously played for the Ravens, Broncos, Jets, and Eagles.
Flacco’s return to the AFC North could potentially have an impact on the division as he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. He won a Super Bowl XLVII MVP award during his time with the Ravens and could provide valuable guidance to young quarterbacks on the Browns’ roster.
