The Browns have confirmed that they will sign former Super Bowl XLVII MVP Joe Flacco to their practice squad on Monday, following a successful workout with the team on Friday. At 38 years old, Flacco has been eager to play this year and had not received any significant interest until last week when the Bengals expressed no interest after learning that their quarterback Joe Burrow would miss the rest of the season.
The Browns are currently relying on Dorian Thomson-Robinson as their starter and P.J. Walker as their backup. However, with starter Deshaun Watson out for the rest of the year due to knee and shoulder injuries, the team is looking for additional options. Flacco, a first-round pick in 2008 who has previously played for the Ravens, Broncos, Jets, and Eagles, could potentially have an impact on the AFC North division.
