Broncos GM John Elway shows support for Drew Lock

Since future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning decided to step away from the game, the Denver Broncos have some tremendous issues finding a solution under center.

It has been a carousel at the position with them going through several quarterbacks in hopes of putting in place a long-term answer. General manager John Elway appears to be confident that rookie quarterback Drew Lock could be that answer for the franchise, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

“I don’t see any options right now. He finished and did a heck of a job. He won four out of five games and played well,” Elway said. “I don’t like to show our hand, but I think it’s unrealistic to say we’re going in a different direction.”

The Broncos had begun the year with veteran quarterback Joe Flacco as the starter, but as he did with the Baltimore Ravens, he worked his way out of the job. Flacco struggled to find his footing that led to Lock stepping over the last few games of the regular season.

He didn’t blow things away with his production, but he was a steady option for the franchise that has shown he could be part of their young nucleus of running back Phillip Lindsay and rising star wide receiver Courtland Sutton. With the team’s backing, Lock can head into the offseason with full confidence that he now has the keys to potentially be the franchise quarterback that Denver has been desperate to have over the last couple of years.
