The New York Jets have reached a deal with quarterback Joe Flacco.

According to Adam Schefter, the Jets and the Super Bowl champion have agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

His base salary with the Jets will be $1.5 million. The move comes after Flacco spent last season with the Broncos, which ended with him suffering a neck issue.

This is a smart move by the Jets and Adam Gase. Flacco adds a veteran voice to the locker room, and he’s a great backup option if Sam Darnold goes down.

At the same time, there’s absolutely zero pressure on Darnold with Flacco being on the roster. Yes, he won a Super Bowl back in the day, but this is without question Darnold’s team.

All the former Ravens star does is beef up the quarterback room and provide a measure of security in the event of injury.

All the way around, it’s a great move from everyone involved.

Now, we’ll see what the Jets are capable of doing in 2020. If they don’t have a solid season, you can expect Gase to be looking for a new job. You can take that one to the bank!
