Denver Broncos 2021 offseason: Aaron Rodgers /

If Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater fail to solidify the Broncos’ quarterback position, the team should look to in-league options for the 2022 season.

The Denver Broncos’ long-term outlook on their quarterback position sucks, frankly, and until the team can figure something out, we content creators will always chip away at the now half-decade-long quarterback debacle.

One of or both of Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater will play meaningful football for the team this year unless an Aaron Rodgers trade can be executed.

However, neither Lock nor Bridgewater has proven they can be a franchise quarterback.

Being that the current Broncos roster is filled with elite talent and young players, it may make the most sense to look at in-league quarterback options in 2022 if Lock and Bridgewater prove to be insufficient.

Denver Broncos QBs to potentially go after in 2022

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

The Packers can simply refuse to trade Aaron Rodgers this year, and if that is the case, the disgruntled MVP can simply sit out if he chooses.  He could also retire, but that’s a different story.

If the Packers refuse to trade Aaron Rodgers before the 2021 season, they’d surely be more willing to trade him next offseason.  Sure, he’d be another year older, but he just put together one of the best seasons for a quarterback in NFL history, so I’d personally bank on Rodgers being efficient in 2022.

Being that Tom Brady is well into his 40s and still playing at a high level, I’d have no problem thinking Aaron Rodgers could do the same.  Even next offseason, the Broncos should show interest in the QB.
