Joe Flacco Through the Years

Joe Flacco was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2008 after a stunning two-season Delaware career where he set 20 school records. Flacco made an immediate impact on the Ravens taking a Ravens team that went 5-11 in 2007 to the playoffs in 2008 where they finished 11-5 in the conference round. For his achievements in his debut year, Flacco earned the NFL Rookie of the Year award for the 2008 season. In 2012, Flacco led the Ravens to Super Bowl XLVII, defeating the San Francisco 49ers in a 34-31. Flacco was named the Super Bowl MVP. After 11 seasons with the Ravens, Flacco has been traded to the Denver Broncos.
