It might not be as exciting as a 'Manning Bowl,' but the NFL could get its first 'Flacco Bowl' in 2014. The Chargers announced over the weekend that they've signed rookie free agent Mike Flacco. If Flacco makes the team, he'll be reunited with his brother Joe on Nov. 30 when the Ravens host San Diego.

The 27-year-old Mike Flacco took the long route to the NFL. Flacco spent four seasons playing minor league baseball in the Baltimore and Boston organizations before deciding to switch over to football last year.

Flacco spent the 2013 college season at Division II New Haven where he earned third-team All-American honors after catching 30 passes for 591 yards and nine touchdowns as a tight end.

The Chargers also signed cornerback Chris Davis. If that name doesn't sound familiar to you, you might remember him as the guy who did this at the end of the Alabama-Auburn game back in November.
