Former Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco repeatedly expressed his excitement over his fresh start with the Denver Broncos during his introductory press conference on Friday, but he admitted that the final few months on the bench in Baltimore wasn't exactly a memorable experience. Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway told the media in his introduction that he believes Flacco is "the ideal fit for us" and is a quarterback who is "really just coming into his prime".

Flacco agreed with Elway's assessment and pointed to Tom Brady, who at 41 is proving that quarterbacks have longer shelf lives than many believe. And Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway said Flacco was "a ideal fit for us" and "has a lot of good football left in him".

"It feels good because I definitely feel that way, so it feels good to hear somebody say that", Flacco said (via Pro Football Talk).

Elway also said he believed Flacco still has prime seasons to play. Listen, I'm as healthy as I've ever been. barring anything insane happening, I am as healthy as I can be, as physical and ready to go as ever.

Flacco of course spent the final seven games of the season as the backup for the Ravens behind rookie Lamar Jackson, who took the job when Flacco was forced out of the lineup due to injury.

Flacco has been the starter in Baltimore since arriving during the 2008 season. I'm excited about what lies ahead for me and the future, and I'm not putting a number on how much longer I can play.

Because really, those months late past year were agonizing.

Keenum had never been a team's unquestioned starter to open a season until past year for the Broncos.

"Hopefully [Flacco] is the guy to help get this turned around", Elway said.

The Broncos will run what they feel is an updated version of Gary Kubiak's scheme on offense - Broncos offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello has been Kyle Shanahan's quarterbacks coach with the San Francisco 49ers - and Flacco had his career-best 27 touchdown passes in 2014 when Kubiak was the Ravens' offensive coordinator.
