*** Official 2021 Denver Broncos--everyone wants to be the Bronco's QB.

If there is another official thread, sorry I missed it because the search function is well.....the search function.

I liked the draft. Checked off all boxes I saw as needs with the exception of more OL help.

Now that seems like it could bite the Broncos----JaWuan James out for the year with torn Achilles

The good thing is the Broncos are not on the hook for the 10 million owed him this year

Interesting point. Is this up to the organization if they decide to pay or not? Or could they negotiate a settlement?

This will be the third year James has missed.  First from injury, second he opted out, and now this.  He has got a lot of money for not doing much on the field.  It will be interesting to see what they do.  Rough injury for the team too; had to happen the day AFTER the draft.

they do not have to give him a dime....if the exact thing happened at the facility under the supervision of Landow (their strength and conditioning coach) and his staff, he would have gotten every penny of his contract....(I actually heard in all it was going to be 20+ million).......all players knew this was the risk if they worked out on their own because of the "boycott".....he was the first casualty......there will be a lot more players showing up to work out at the facilities now.....

think I saw he has made like 27 mill and has played a total of 63 snaps for the Broncos....and now no guarantee that he will be able to come back and play, so DEN has very little reason to give him anything....not sure he has enough street cred for the Broncos to play nice in the sandbox and give him something out of the kindness of their heart....if he was an elite player and had been giving them solid production and they could count on him coming back and producing then they may try to play nice....but he hasn't given them any reason too.....injured now twice and the other year he opted out when most of the team chose to stick together and play....this really sucks for him, and a huge blow to the NFLPA....but ultimately it was his decision to boycott....

This season obviously comes down to Lock.

On paper, Broncos have one of, if not the best defenses in the league - pro-bowl safeties in KJax & Simmons, former all-pro in Fuller @ CB plus Darby, Callahan & Surtain II.  Von and Chubb on the edge, and an above average IDL.  Only weak spot is mlb but Alexander Johnson has been more than adequate.

It's a young and loaded offense at the skill positions, a pro-bowl LT, good guards.  Cushenberry struggled last year, if he doesn't improve, Meinerz will be the guy.

The only thing holding this team back from a deep playoff run is QB play and I suppose depth.

Everything is set up for Lock to be the guy.  If he struggles like he did last year, Teddy comes in and Broncos go 8-9 or something like that.

Rodgers, of course, makes the Broncos an instant contender but I think that's a distraction at this point.

Predicted record based on starting QB:

Lock:  7-10
Bridgewater:  9-8
Rypien: 11-6
Rodgers: 13-4

So this has been a busy off-season so far. The specter of Rodgers possibly coming to town. The James lawsuit. Drew Lock getting his first chest hairs. Now the news Watson wants to be a Bronco. Very exciting off-season here.....
