Joe Flacco Back To Jets? It's What They Want

The New York Jets are in talks to re-sign quarterback Joe Flacco, who is set to hit free agency.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports there is mutual interest between the Jets and Flacco as head coach Robert Saleh wants to run it back with quarterbacks Zach Wilson, Flacco, and Mike White.

While White would require an RFA tender, a deal could come together quickly if Saleh wanted it to.

The Jets previously re-signed Flacco when Wilson was injured and ruled out for a few weeks in the middle of last season. The trade cost the Jets a 2022 sixth-round conditional pick, which could improve to a fifth-round pick based on his playing time.

The veteran QB spent the 2020 season as former Jets QB Sam Darnold's back up under the previous coaching staff.

ProFootball Rumors reports that in Flacco's two appearances — one of which was a Week 11 start against the Miami Dolphins — he completed 64% of his passes for 338 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.
