Jets, QB Joe Flacco agree to terms on 1-year deal

Local Sports

The New York Jets and quarterback Joe Flacco have agreed to terms on a one-year deal. The 2013 Super Bowl MVP’s agency announced the move on Twitter.

The signing gives third-year starter Sam Darnold a veteran backup but Flacco is coming off a herniated disk that cut short his only season in Denver and required surgery to repair.

Financial terms were not immediately disclosed, but ESPN reported the deal is worth $1.5 million and could reach $4.5 million with incentives.

The 35-year-old Flacco spent his first 11 NFL seasons in Baltimore, where current Jets general manager Joe Douglas was a scout in 2008.
