Drew Lock, Noah Fant okay after airport shuttle accident
Denver Broncos rookies Drew Lock and Noah Fant are okay after an airport shuttle accident in Los Angeles. Lock even joked about it afterward.
Denver Broncos rookies Noah Fant and Drew Lock are okay after an airport shuttle wreck at LAX in Los Angeles, CA.
Lock said to TMZ that the shuttle “hit something” and that it was “wild”.
He joked in the video linked above about how he and Fant have taken worse hits in their football careers.
Fant and Lock, who was sporting an orange long-sleeve Broncos shirt at the airport, are heading to Los Angeles for the annual NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
Obviously, we’re thankful everyone’s okay in the situation, though according to Lock, it doesn’t sound like the airport shuttle is in the best shape.
Lock was also asked in this video about Joe Flacco’s comments about not being a mentor to him. He said, “Me and Joe…he’s taught me a lot so far. He’s been great to me.”
Just reading body language and making my own observations, it’s clear Lock was giving a bit of a stock answer here.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
I think it’s really fun to think about Lock having a bit of an extra edge and chip on his shoulder as he now attempts to take Flacco’s job away from him.
Lock said he wants to be the best backup he can be for as long as he needs to be, but he’s also a competitor and was a four-year starter in college. You think this kid isn’t chomping at the bit to get out there and play?
Lock is obviously going to be working his butt off to take Flacco’s job at any point in time, whenever his number is called. How quickly will that happen? That remains to be seen, but the other side of Flacco’s comments are Lock making every attempt he can now to prove to the coaching staff he’s ready for action.
