Former Raven Joe Flacco Expresses Gratitude to Cleveland After Securing NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award



The NFL Honors on Thursday night proved significant for both current and former Ravens quarterbacks. Lamar Jackson secured his second NFL MVP at 27, becoming the youngest player with two MVPs. Meanwhile, Joe Flacco, the quarterback Jackson succeeded in Baltimore, was honored with the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Flacco’s victory in the Comeback Player category came over contenders like the Bills’ Damar Hamlin and the Bucs’ Baker Mayfield. Despite Hamlin earning more first-place votes, Flacco secured the win based on total points. Joining the Browns in Week 12, Flacco played a pivotal role, starting as quarterback due to injuries to Deshaun Watson and Dorion Thompson-Robinson. He delivered four consecutive 300-plus yard performances in five starts, contributing to the Browns’ playoff berth.

In his acceptance speech, Flacco expressed gratitude to the city of Cleveland, acknowledging the warm welcome and support. This gesture marked a notable shift from his time playing in Baltimore. Flacco thanked his teammates for embracing him, recognizing the challenges of integrating a new player mid-season. He also extended appreciation to the organization for providing him the opportunity to continue playing football and expressed gratitude to the city for making him and his family feel at home during his brief tenure.

Looking ahead, Flacco has expressed a desire to return to the NFL in 2024, with specific interest in joining the Browns. However, Cleveland VP Andrew Berry has refrained from making firm commitments, leaving Flacco’s future in the league uncertain.
