Drew Lock states he and Joe Flacco are on good terms
Despite reports that state that Joe Flacco is not here to mentor Drew Lock, the rookie quarterback has stated that all is well with the pair.
Drew Lock was selected in the second round by the Denver Broncos in this year’s draft to be the eventual successor for the Mile High City. For the time being, Joe Flacco will run the show with the Broncos. However, the Broncos will be turning to Lock in the future at some point.
Flacco has stated that he is not here to mentor the Missouri quarterback and that he is wants to win football games. Does this mean that there could be some controversy that has been portrayed? I honestly do not believe there is a reason to take too much into Flacco’s comments.
Drew Lock does not believe that as well. He believes the opposite in the fact that he is learning quite a bit from Joe Flacco.
“He’s taught me a lot so far. He’s dealing with winning football games, I’m dealing with trying to learn. We are in the same quarterback room. He has been great to me.”
It seems as if both quarterbacks know their roles with the team. And I believe that will be really helpful when it comes to training camp and the preseason. Denver should handle the development of Drew Lock very carefully.
The last thing the Denver Broncos want on their hands is another failed quarterback project. If that were to happen, it would be devastating. And then the cycle would continue all over again.
I believe having Joe Flacco starting for a bit while Drew Lock develops will really help in the distant future. There really is no rush getting Lock to starting role. Let him learn first, then we can talk about him as the starter.
It is great to hear that both Flacco and Lock are doing well, according to the rookie. Hopefully it helps in developing a solid relationship.
