QB - NYJ - PUP
QB Joe Flacco (neck) will begin camp on the PUP list.
Flacco signed one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Jets this offseason. He underwent a disc repair procedure in April, and it was reported that he won’t be healthy in time for season opener. Flacco was officially placed on the PUP Thursday. The 35-year-old will backup Sam Darnold once he is able to come off the PUP list and return to the field. Flacco is currently 51st among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.
QB Joe Flacco has officially signed with the New York Jets.
In a subsequent move, the Jets have released P Ian Berryman to make room for Flacco. In an update on his health on Tuesday, Flacco told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he likely won’t be ready to go on Day One as he works his way back from April neck surgery. He went on to say that he is optimistic that he’ll be ready to go by the middle of September. The Jets signed Flacco to a one-year deal this off-season to secure a veteran with a ton of experience as a backup to Sam Darnold after a rough experience at the quarterback position last season when Darnold missed a few games.
New Jets QB Joe Flacco confirms on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday that he won’t be ready for the regular season opener due to neck surgery he had in April.
“I can’t speak to exactly when I’m going to be ready, but it will not be Day One,” said Flacco. It was originally thought that the veteran would be ready for the start of the season, but he confirmed today that won’t be the case. Flacco recently signed a one-year deal with New York to be the QB2 behind starter Sam Darnold after spending 11 years with the Ravens and one year with the Broncos. He went on to say that he’s been working out and he remains optimistic for a mid-September return.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports Joe Flacco (neck) is not expected to be ready for Week 1.
Flacco has been throwing but won't be ready for contact until "mid-September". The Jets' new backup quarterback could even be a candidate for reserve/PUP, which would cost him the first six games of the season. David Fales or fourth-round rookie James Morgan will back up Sam Darnold until Flacco is ready.
Joe Flacco has agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Jets. The contract is worth up to $4.5 million in incentives.
"Flacco (neck) is expected to be ready to participate in training camp without contact, but he is expected to be cleared from his neck surgery in September," Schefter added. He will backup starter Sam Darnold. The 35-year-old reportedly received interest from other teams, but ultimately landed with the Jets. He missed eight games last season due to a neck injury. Flacco threw for 1,822 passing yards and a 6:5 TD:INT ratio across eight games for the Broncos in 2019. He is only worth drafting in Two-QB/Superflex league formats.
