Denver Shocks The NFL World By Not Drafting A QB

Videos by OutKick

The Denver Broncos are going to have an interesting look when their offense takes the field in 2021, now that they shockingly did NOT draft a quarterback.

At all.

Broncos GM George Paton said Saturday evening that Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater will formally compete for the starting job when training camp begins this summer and that was “what we wanted all along.”

That statement is hard to believe, considering that Denver spent most of the offseason talking about going and getting a new franchise quarterback.

Now it will be up to Locke or Bridgewater to lead this squad when they take the field.

“I like our room right now. I think I said that [Friday] night. Teddy and Drew, they’re going to have a great competition, that’s what we wanted all along. We’ll let them compete,” Paton said.

“Does that mean we won’t continue to look? No, [but] I say that with every position. But I do look forward to getting Teddy here with Drew and having a great competition.”

The Broncos have been associated with just about every free agent QB on the trade market.

Late last week, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he wanted out of Green Bay, and by the time the 2021 NFL Draft started, many had the Broncos listed as the favorite to trade for A-Rod.

  1. Might be a stretch, but Elway can’t pick QB’s because he has never gotten over losing to a washed up doug williams and the Redskins.

    in his view, he could not have lost to inferior players with a broken QB. He did. If you ask him today, he’ll still tell you that super bowl was a blur. a mystery. a stone in his shoe.

    he should have drafted Mac Jones. Roll Tide.
