John Elway OK with Joe Flacco's lack of interest in mentoring Drew Lock

Broncos' Joe Flacco on mentoring Drew Lock: 'I don't look at that as my job'

Last season with the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Flacco went through the process that almost every starting quarterback at this stage of his career does: seeing his team draft his potential replacement in the first round. When the Denver Broncos traded for Flacco, it was viewed as a short-term upgrade at quarterback, but it in no way meant they weren't going to look for a younger QB to groom while Flacco starts. Although Missouri QB Drew Lock surprisingly slipped to the early second round, the Br...

Joe Flacco won't have to worry about losing his job to another rookie quite yet

After the Denver Broncos selected Drew Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft, Joe Flacco likely had flashbacks to one year earlier when his Baltimore Ravens drafted his eventual replacement, Lamar Jackson. The good news for Flacco is that this time around, he should have a bit more breathing room. First-year Broncos head coach Vic Fangio spoke to the media on Sunday and quashed any rumors of a quarterback battle during OTAs.

Elway believes Broncos' quarterback problems are resolved

With a little luck – and help from Drew Lock – Denver's quarterback woes could be over, according to Broncos general manager John Elway. It is no secret the Broncos have struggled at the position in recent seasons, but Elway is confident that could all change in 2019. The team entered the offseason with a lot of uncertainty under center, but Denver traded for Baltimore Ravens veteran Joe Flacco and further secured their future by selecting the former Missouri quarterback Lock with the numbe...
