Vic Fangio wants Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock in good shape before training camp
Denver- During mini camp this week, Broncos' head coach Vic Fangio said that he wanted both of his top Quarterbacks to be in good shape and throwing prior to training camp.
As most people know, mini-camp is where chemistry is built within teams and rookies, as well as veterans can get the extended reps. Coach Fangio said that he liked the intensity and competitive spirit with all his players brought through mini-camp. When asked about the quarterback competition between Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock in a media conference this is what he said about the two.
'Obviously they need to be throwing. They don’t want to take a month off from throwing. They have to build their arm strength to where when they come into camp. It’s not like the first day of throwing in a month, It’s two-fold. Study the playbook, get into tremendous shape, and then make sure their arm is ready to go.”
Both quarterbacks come into a situation where expectations are pretty high. Denver wanted another quarterback and got Bridgewater in a trade with the Carolina Panthers and Lock has to prove that he can be the quarterback that the Broncos need. After Peyton Manning retired after the Broncos won the Superbowl in the 2015-2016 season, they have not found a quarterback that could get them to the next level.
With training camp only a few weeks ago it will be interesting to see what quarterback will get the starting role this season.
