When you have two quarterbacks, you have none. That’s how the saying goes, doesn’t it?
Even though the Broncos like Drew Lock at quarterback, they still traded for Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to create competition at the quarterback position. They didn’t even draft a quarterback who could potentially beat out the two. It doesn’t hurt to take a flier on a guy in the later rounds of the draft — especially with the free agency the team had.
Many media outlets have come out and said that they are shocked that the team passed on the opportunity to draft Ohio State’s Justin Fields and Alabama’s Mac Jones. They did, however, get the best cornerback in the draft class.
They weren’t going to draft a quarterback just because there were a couple of them on the board. Those quarterbacks just weren’t the right fit, I guess.
They went into the draft with not many holes.
Brett Rypien isn’t the guy. Lock and Bridgewater have shown flashes of being good but that might not be enough for the long-term future.
Will the Green Bay Packers act on Aaron Rodgers’ anger and trade the MVP quarterback? That would be the best outcome of this whole situation revolving around the Broncos’ quarterback position. Even though Rodgers is in his late-30’s, he could still provide the Broncos with an incredible couple of seasons, while effectively giving the team more time to find his replacement.
Some feel that Rodgers is destined to be a Denver Bronco. Some don’t think he’s going to get traded whatsoever.
Hopefully, we will know sooner than later what the future of the quarterback position for Denver will be.
