He played college football at Delaware after transferring from Pittsburgh and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Flacco also played for the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. Joe Flacco net worth is $75 million.
Flacco was born on January 16, 1985, in Audubon, New Jersey. The son of Karen and Steve Flacco, Joe is the oldest of five boys. The Flacco family is originally from Haddon Township, New Jersey. Flacco played football, baseball, and basketball at Audubon High School and was the starting quarterback for the Green Wave.
Flacco was redshirted as a freshman for the Pittsburgh Panthers football team that went 8–5 in 2003.
In 2004, Flacco was the backup quarterback behind starter Tyler Palko, who led the team to an 8–4 record. He saw action in three games against Ohio University, the University of Nebraska, and the University of South Florida. Flacco threw only four passes and finished the season with one completion for 11 yards and a 25-yard punt.
Flacco transferred to the University of Delaware in 2005, but was not eligible to play that season. He saw his first full-time action during the 2006 season, throwing for 2,783 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Delaware’s Fightin’ Blue Hens ultimately struggled to a 5–6 record and failed to qualify for the FCS playoffs.
Flacco was drafted by the Ravens with the 18th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft after the team traded out of the eight overall selection to the 26th, then up again. The selection made Flacco the highest drafted player ever from the University of Delaware.
He was also the first Division I-FCS (formerly I-AA) quarterback selected in the first round of the draft since Steve McNair went third overall to the Houston Oilers in the 1995 NFL Draft. Draft commentators initially criticized the pick as a “reach”, feeling Flacco would likely have still been available in the middle of the second round.
DeCosta, however, stated waiting was too much of a gamble and that choosing Flacco in the first round was “an easy decision to make.”
On July 16, 2008, he signed a five-year contract with a maximum value of around $30 million, and $8.75 million guaranteed. He played for 11 years at the Ravens.
On February 13, 2019, the Ravens agreed to trade Flacco to the Denver Broncos in exchange for their fourth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The deal became official on March 13, 2019.
On May 27, 2020, Joe Flacco signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the New York Jets as the backup quarterback to 2018 first-round pick Sam Darnold. He was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp on July 30, 2020. He was activated from the list at the start of the regular season on September 5, 2020.
On March 25, 2021, Flacco signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.
