The Cleveland Browns are signing veteran quarterback Joe Flacco to their practice squad, ESPN reported Sunday night.
Flacco will likely be promoted to the active roster, per the report.
Cleveland placed starting quarterback Deshaun Watson on injured reserve earlier this week due to a season-ending shoulder injury.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson filled in under center on Sunday, helping the Browns to a 13-10 victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers. He completed 24 of 43 passes for 165 yards with an interception.
But now Cleveland has added depth with Flacco, who last appeared in five games (four starts) with the New York Jets last season. He threw for 1,051 yards with five touchdowns and three picks.
Flacco, 38, has 183 career games (180 starts) under his belt with the Baltimore Ravens (2008-18), Denver Broncos (2019) and Jets (2020-22). He has amassed 42,320 yards through the air with 232 touchdowns and 147 interceptions.
Flacco led Baltimore to a Super Bowl in 2013 and was named MVP as the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
