Joe Flacco burst into the scene just weeks ago, but it has been quite an entry. The Cleveland Browns contacted the veteran following Deshaun Watson‘s season-ending injury, and it happened to be their best decision of the season. The QB schooled Jacksonville JaguarsTrevor Lawrence with a 300-yard, 3-TD game last Sunday, which has caught some eyes in the office.

Following that, Joe Flacco was subsequently rewarded with a well-deserved contract. But the 38-year-old Super Bowl XLVII MVP already had a very different idea at the start of the season, following a distance from the football. But with the contract, he might have to make a change in plans.

Following his impressive debut at Cleveland, Joe Flacco has won many hearts, as well as a huge contract for the season. NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that the QB reached an agreement with the Browns to sign a one-year contract that includes massive incentives and bonuses for his follow-up performances.

Adam Schefter also revealed the contract details which include $4.05 million in incentives just for winning. Additionally, if he’s able to take the side to the playoffs, there’s a bonus awaiting him at every stage. A $250k for a wild card, $500k for a divisional round, $1 million for the conference championship, and a whopping $2 million for the Super Bowl win is guaranteed for the QB, as per Schefter.

However, things were entirely different just a little while ago. The 38-year-old had already considered a surprising career switch but thankfully didn’t accept an offer.

Meanwhile, Joe Flacco had decided to start a broadcasting career

Former NFL safety and InsideTheNFL’s host, Ryan Clark, recently tweeted that Joe Flacco applied for an audition at the show. Starting the season watching the NFL from the couch, just like all of us, he had little to no hope in football at this age. But it looks like life and the NFL had different plans for the QB, and luckily Joe Flacco responded to the Browns’ call, canceling his plans. We can only say that it was the right decision for him.

The Browns initially called Joe Flacco for their practice squad on November 20, within a week of Watson’s injury. But rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson failed to justify his starting role in 2 games, and the Browns asked Flacco for help. In his first game, Flacco threw for 254 yards and 2 TDs but failed to get the win. However, his performance in the Jaguars game changed everyone’s perception and potentially the Browns’ trajectory this season.

Before I even realized it, I religiously started following American football, picking up the most challenging in-depth write-ups.
