Broncos’ Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater improving amid Aaron Rodgers trade rumors

Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater, Aaron Rodgers, Broncos, Jerry Jeudy

The situation regarding Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been stagnant for some time. With the Denver Broncos as one of the most likely destinations for the Packers star, the quarterback room in Denver of Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock are holding their own, both hoping to land the starting job when the season rolls around.

Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy said the competition between Bridgewater and Lock is causing both to make improvements. Perhaps the Rodgers’ rumors have them both performing at a high level.

The former Alabama star and Broncos lead receiver touched on the pair of quarterbacks in an interview with Jim Rome, per Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. 

“Drew is more of a bullet-type thrower. He relies a lot more on his arm. Teddy, I feel he more anticipates and throws it and knows how to anticipate on your routes. That’s the only difference I see between them. But I feel like they’re two great quarterbacks who are out here competing. Having them compete against each other, you can see both of them are improving in their game.”

Both quarterbacks are competing for the starting job– for now. If a Rodgers trade goes down with Denver, both could be gone or on the market, and Bridgewater has only been with Denver for a few months after being dealt from the Carolina Panthers.

The next couple of weeks will be interesting regarding the Rodgers situation, and a trade to Denver would negate both Lock and Bridgewater. Still, it would also send the Broncos to the list of competitors for the 2021 NFL season.

The starting quarterback for week one in Denver is far from clarified, and nobody has any idea what will happen regarding Aaron Rodgers. Either way, Jerry Jeudy seems happy with his passers.
