The Browns officially signed quarterback Joe Flacco to their practice squad on Monday. While he’s not on the 53-man roster at the moment, Flacco could be elevated to the game-day roster three times from the practice squad.
If DTR struggles going forward, however, Flacco will give Cleveland a veteran fallback option. It would not be surprising to see Flacco on the game-day roster when the Browns face the Broncos in Week 12.
Flacco, 38, played for the Baltimore Ravens from 2008-2018, winning Super Bowl XLVII following the 2012 season. After drafting Lamar Jackson in 2018, the Ravens traded Flacco to the Broncos for a fourth-round pick in 2019. Flacco went 2-6 as a starter in Denver and he’s bounced around the league as a backup since then. The Browns will be Flacco’s fifth team.
