The New York Jets filled their need for an experienced backup quarterback, agreeing to terms with former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco on a one-year contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.  This according to sources.

Flacco, who was released by the Denver Broncos in March after one season, will receive $1.5 million in base pay, plus the chance to make another $3 million with incentives.

The question with Flacco, 35, is his health. The former longtime Baltimore Ravens starter underwent neck surgery in early April to repair a herniated disk and won't be cleared for contact until late August or early September, a source said. He likely will participate in training camp on a limited basis, meaning no contact.

Assuming he's healthy, Flacco will be the primary backup to Sam Darnold.
