So Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade.

Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward..........✌�� #NewDemands
So although he might be the biggest diva in the game, he is a game changer without question.

Would look good opposite Devante Adams in Green Bay!

Still don't think they ultimately trade him, his value now that he's trying to force his way out is basically second round pick at best. Outside Julio there hasn't been a more consistent producer at WR in the league for the last 5-7 years. We all know Tomlin is the real problem there, so do you trade AB and miss the playoffs (and then probably fire Tomlin anyway), or take one more shot with all the divas and drama? Still should have been a playoff team last year even with all that mess. I also don't buy that they'll be fine without him because of JuJu. JuJu got single coverage all year because AB demands double coverage. Hows JuJu gonna do when he gets the double coverage?

And I’m out on the Broncos season. Can’t wait til Elway is fired. What an idiotic move.

paying Flacco and Keenum a combined 40m per year sounds like a solid plan. Why have one average and overpaid QB if you can have two?

Flacco isn’t even average. He’s hot ass. Has been declining for five years, lost his job to a QB who cant pass, and is old AF. How can you pass up the opportunity to get a guy like that?

Good lord can the ownership situation get fixed so they fire Elway please? Riding with Keemun would have been a smarter play and he sucks too. What a tire fire.

Rapoport saying "a mid-round pick" going to Baltimore. Brutal, wow.

Actually you can see the Broncos strategy pretty clearly is to set themselves up for Tank for Trevor in 2021. Well on their way now.

This makes me very happy. Flacco is no better than Keenum. It can't be understated how bad his career 56.6% completion percentage is in a time when QB stats are going through the roof. He hasn't averaged 7 yards per pass since 2014. His metrics are incredibly bad. The Ravens invested in offense last season to help Flacco and they still had to replace him with a rookie that can't throw the ball to win games.

I mean Flacco is definitely better than Keenum, he's just not appreciably better. That said, the ability to have an extra five yards from the Mile High air for jump balls/PI penalties could return Flacco to the "elite".

Best case scenario they cut Flacco before the season and they are out a 4th round pick . Worst case, we see another year of Von Millers career wasted

The only way this isn’t the worst move of Elways tenure (that’s saying a lot with how crap he is) is if there is somehow a Matt Flynn/Russell Wilson situation and a rookie saves elway from himself. Shockingly the local team mouthpieces are going full Oiler that this is a splashy QB fix, a winner coming in, and the team is contending again. If I was an opposing AFC West fan I’d be overjoyed. KC and SD won’t have any competition for the division anytime soon.

Ugh...I hate this move as a Broncos fan.

I would have rather they stuck with Keenum for one more year and drafted a QB in the 1st round. I would also rather that they signed Kapernick. I would rather they do just about anything other than trade for Flacco.

The Kaepernick thing has sailed. He was offered a contract by Elway and declined. Will never happen.

Ha ha silly Broncos. No hot tub time machine for Elway to go back and undo that 2013 playoff game.

Lol it's like Elway is trying to collect the infinity stones of bad QBs. Or, as others have suggested, he's signing nothing but turds so he can make himself unquestionably the greatest Broncos QB of all-time.

His career completion percentage is 61.7%, but you're not wrong on him being terrible.

You are correct I looked back and 56.6% is his career playoff completion percentage.
