Drew Lock & his 57% completion percentage don’t seem bothered by the drumbeat of the Broncos looking to get themselves a big-time quarterback like BYU’s Zach Wilson in the 2021 Draft. Lock’s finally done for the year, after starting 13 games (4-9) and throwing 15 interceptions to go with his 16 touchdown passes. It’s time to treat the body to paradise.
Lock and girlfriend Natalie Newman wasted no time getting away from the rigors of COVID testing, Zoom meetings, empty stadiums and the cold of Denver with a trip to Islamorada in the Florida Keys to recharge the batteries. The only problem? The weather in the Keys sucks right now. The highs through the weekend will barely get above 70, and it’s looking like there will be a mix of rain and clouds.
This is when someone like Lock has to make a business decision. He needs to look at his Bank of Denver account and figure out how much he’s willing to spend to chase 83-degrees and beautiful sunsets. His agent needs to make a couple of calls and get a St. Lucia trip lined up FAST. Or Turks and Caicos. The weather there is looking incredible through the weekend. Low 80s, maybe a cloud for those who are chasing sunsets. The Keys are great and all, but Natalie deserves 82 and the amazing blue waters of the Turks. They were there a year ago. Time to go back.
Do what’s right, Drew, while you’re still a starting NFL quarterback. You’re not getting these days back.
