After being shuttered in September 2018, its developer CloudMagic was acquired by Essential the following December, hinting at a possible resurrection which did indeed come to pass in February 2019. Fast forward a year, though, and Essential itself announced it was shutting down, taking Newton Mail with it. And now it’s back again.

Flacco's deal is similar to the last QB of first-round note to sign. Jameis Winston, the 2015 No. 1 overall pick, went from Buccaneers five-season starter to settling for a $1.1 million base salary plus incentives to back up Drew Brees with the Saints late last month.

For Newton, as the 2015 NFL MVP, reports are it's been difficult for him to accept both a lesser deal and one that doesn't come with a real chance to compete for a starting job. So far, the Patriots and Jaguars have held firm on rolling with second-year third-day picks Jarrett Stidham and Gardner Minshew, respectively, instead of wanting to bring Newton or another viable veteran alternative into the mix.

The Redskins (Ron Rivera and Scott Turner) and Broncos (Mike Shula) are Newton's best remaining coaching staff fits. But Washington has Dwayne Haskins and already traded for former Panther Kyle Allen to compete with him, while Denver is gung-ho on Drew Lock, far removed from Flacco, to the point that it doesn't want him looking over his shoulder.

Adam Gase and Dowell Loggains, who oversee the Jets' offense as coach and coordinator, needed more of a regular pocket passing type behind Darnold. Before Flacco, the Jets' best No. 2 option was David Fales. When Darnold had mononucleosis early last season, their backup situation was badly exposed.

Douglas started as a longtime scout with the Ravens from 2000 to 2014, and Flacco was drafted by Ozzie Newsome in the middle of that tenure.
