The Denver Broncos have a starting quarterback, at least for the start of the 2021 season, and it's the guy most people thought had no chance... Teddy Bridgewater.
According to DenverBroncos.com:
Teddy Bridgewater will be the Broncos' starting quarterback, Head Coach Vic Fangio told his team on Wednesday.
Bridgewater, whom the Broncos acquired for a sixth-round pick ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft, won the battle over incumbent starter and 2019 second-round pick Drew Lock.
As recently as Tuesday afternoon, Fangio said the competition was "pretty damn close" and that he had not made a final decision.
The Broncos open the season on Sept. 12 against the Giants in New York.
