It’s hard to tell who the starting quarterback will be in Denver. It’s still early in the offseason and training camp will likely help the Broncos come to that determination. It was reported on April 28th that Teddy Bridgewater had been traded to the Broncos, but it was confirmed today that Bridgewater had signed a new contract with the organization. According to reports, Bridgewater signed a restructured deal at $11.5M that will allow him to become an unrestricted free agent in 2022. It is speculated that Bridgewater will likely be splitting snaps with the Broncos other quarterback, Drew Lock. Check out the video below to learn more about how that will play out.

In other Denver Broncos news, John Elway made it very clear that he was happy not to be the guy “pulling the trigger” in the first round for the Broncos organization.

“I still got a little nervous in that room,” Elway said late Thursday evening, per the Broncos’ team website. “But it was nice to be where I was, and it felt right. After 60 years, for the first time in my life, I was glad I wasn’t the guy pulling the trigger. What I will say is that I was thrilled to be able to leave the Broncos in great hands,” Elway continued. “Because the Broncos have been my life, you know. They’ve been great to me. It was a perfect time for George to step in, and I think we left him in a pretty good situation, cap-wise, as well as young talent. So for me to be able to leave them in a great spot — not necessarily win-wise, but with our personnel and giving us a chance to get back to what we’ve been and what our fans deserve — I feel great about doing that.”
