Wednesday was a good day for Joe Flacco and it was not great for Nick Foley.
The Baltimore Ravens agreement to trade with Flakko on Denver Broncos for a medium-term project was timely for the 11-year-old veteran. Sources say they hoped the Raven will trade or break it before the start of the league. Baltimore finished with Flacco after moving to the first round of 2018 Lamar Jackson in a quarterback. While Ravan coach John Harbouu insisted "Joe has a market" at his press conference after the loss of the Chargers playoff, the fact is that the market is a little narrower this year than it would be usual.
will have a minimum of $ 28.5 million of his salary in 2019 for Flacco and Case Keenum, without a future defender on the list.
Leon Veon Bell landing, blockbuster, drafts – we have fearless predictions
A signing or trade can dictate a few more moves. Let's expose destinations for seven potential free agents, and then predict what will follow. An informal survey of agents and team leaders around the league opened a list of teams looking for a starter to be surprisingly short with warnings. It includes the dolphins of Miami if we assume they are moving from Ryan Tanehill. Includes Jacksonville Jaguars, assuming they move from Blake Bortall. He includes Washington if we assume that Alex Smith's trauma will keep him for most or all of the 2019 season. It may include the New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals if these teams decide they want to move forward from their current appearances, though no one is quite sure it will be at either of these points. It included Denver until Wednesday.
If you were Flacco or Philadelphia Eagles, book Foxes or New Orleans Senses, supporting Teddy Bridgewater or Tanehil or Bortles or any advocate looking for a place to offer you a chance to start this year's market musical chairs and a serious risk of staying without it.
We are so used to accepting the person's cost that there are not enough NFL boot squads to circumvent that it's hard to adjust our minds to a landscape where this may not be as true as it once was. Consider the factors that have created a market for rare buyers of the most important league position:
Over the past two years, eight teams have chosen a defender in the first round of the project. This is a quarter of the league, placed in quarterbacks that are too early to give up.
On the other side of the spectrum, long-time beginners such as Patriots, Tom Brady, the Saints, Drew Brias, Steelers Ben Relissberger, and Philippe Rivers from the chargers remained healthy, productive, winning beginners in past or past epochs when using beakers. are jobs that you may have taken five years ago but have not been opened yet
Monster's contract has been handing out over the past few seasons of Derek Carr, Minnesota's daughter, Arroyo Rogers of Detroit, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan from Atlanta and Jimmy Garropo San Francisco has locked quarters in jobs for better or worse
Six more teams have high-performing 30 or younger and do not worry about the present or the future of the position, including Seattle, Indianapolis , Dallas, Philadelphia, Aries and even Carolina if we assume that Camer Newton's shoulder does not stretch back in September
We are up to three-quarters of the League with situations that are basically defined. Add Denver to the Flacco marketing news, and the other teams are Miami, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Jacksonville, Washington, Giants and Tampa Bay, and even this list is not the most attractive for potential job seekers. Andy Dalton has left his contract with Bengal for two years on reasonable money, and the word is that the new coach likes it. Titans and Bucs are not ready to give up Markus and Jamie Winston, despite the health problems of the latter's first and outside issues. Washington may be financially crippled by its commitment to Smith, even if it can not play. The Giants still can not finish with Eli Manning, even if they look at this year's project for its possible replacement.
It's a strange year to be a defender who is looking for starting NFL work.
Teams looking for 2019 novices
Again, this group is considered by the squad for the league, which includes Jacksonville, Miami, Washington and perhaps the Bengal and the Giants. Since Denver is no longer a suitor, these teams are theoretically sitting a lot. For example: Jacksonville is a young defense killer, is 10-6 two seasons ago and can be a defender away from returning to contention. But if, say, Miami decides not to spend this interim time and Washington can not, the Jaguars may be the only candidates for Foley and therefore in a situation where they can dictate the conditions of eagle trade. 25-27 April

Quarterbacks Seeks Job Start
Flacco is in Denver, but Foles stays in Philadelphia where the Eagles' chance gives him a franchise and trades just to make sure he did not. he will eventually have a rival in Washington or New York. These were the first two veterans to be available. Add Manning in the unlikely event that giants have cut him off. Then you fall into a group that includes Bridgwater, Tyrith Taylor, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tanehil, Borth, Casey Case (which will surely be cut or traded by Broncos) and probably Dalton. It's more dudes than jobs. In the past, players from the middle to the bottom of this list could have chances of going to camps and competing to start work, someone like Bridgewater may find that his best option is another season as a Brees Reserve in New Orlean.
While it may be possible to reach four dozen in the first round of this year's project, the consensus in our reports seemed to be that drafts are not much of a threat to veterans looking for work. It is possible that if Miami is in tear-down mode, dolphins can make a man and start it right away without signing a veteran. But boys like Duane Hakkins, Caylor Murray, Drew Locke, and Daniel Jones are not seen as a 2019 answer for most of the teams that are looking for that – at least not yet.
Current archives whose jobs may be in danger  Here is an interesting part of the potential danger. If you have Starter Quality Defenders whose best options are backup tasks, the current class archives can be replaced. Is it possible for the patriots to find a better insurance policy for Brady than Brian Hoyer? Can Garvans do better than Robert Griffin III as Jackson's back? If Foles is missing, is Eagles considering Nate Sudfeld a plug-and-play option in the event of another injury to Carson Wentz, or adding a veteran for insurance? Although he is disappointed by the beginner in Denver, can Keenum become a hot item as a backup, given his performance as a plug-in starter in Minnesota two seasons ago?
This is a strange market for quaterbits in 2019, and it's hard to see how everything will get. There may be unforeseen transactions or decisions in places like Oakland, Tennessee, Cincinnati and Arizona, which move all this in new ways. There may be injuries in the spring to force teams to change their plans. But at this point, many more teams in NFL seem to like their situations with a quarterback than not. It may not last forever-especially when boys like Brady and Brace begin to leave. But the NZL quarterback is unusually calm.
