Browns’ Joe Flacco Gets Brutally Honest On His NFL Future

Cleveland Browns quarterback Joe Flacco won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award on Thursday night, and afterward, he spoke about his future in the league.

“I want there to be more, so we’ll see,” Flacco said, via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.

It’s pretty clear that Flacco still has something left in the tank.

The 36-year-old signed on to the Browns’ practice squad in late November this past season and ended up becoming the starter in December.

He went 4-1 in his regular-season starts, throwing 1,616 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 60.3 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 90.2.

Most importantly, he vaulted Cleveland into the playoffs.

Unfortunately, Flacco’s warts showed in the postseason, as he threw a pair of pick-sixes in the Browns’ 45-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card Round.

That brutal performance torpedoed any chance of there being any sort of quarterback controversy between Flacco and Deshaun Watson in Cleveland next year, but there is no doubt that Flacco is still a fine backup and should certainly find work on the free-agent market next month.

But will Flacco return to the Browns in 2024?

It remains to be seen, but Flacco surely appreciated his time in Cleveland this past season.

“It’s definitely been surreal,” Flacco said. “Listen, I’ve been grateful for the opportunity to get back on the field, and what an awesome place to go in the city of Cleveland.”

We’ll see if Joe Flacco re-signs with the Browns in the coming weeks.
