Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is comfortable with having Drew Lock and Terry Bridgewater as his quarterbacks but he noted that it’s up to the Broncos front office to get a deal done with Aaron Rodgers, should the Green Bay Packers quarterback become available.
It’s not a secret that Rodgers is unhappy with the Packers but the team’s front office so far has rejected any offers teams made for their star quarterback.
Lock, who was the starting quarterback for the Broncos last season, struggled with consistency as he threw 16 touchdowns and had 15 interceptions.
However, Miller isn’t ready to give up on Lock as he is confident the 24-year-old quarterback will bounce back this coming season.
“What have I heard?” the star pass rusher told Mike Klis of 9News on Sunday. “First and foremost, I’m comfortable with Drew. I’m comfortable with Teddy. G.P. (General Manager George Paton) and (president of football operations) John Elway. If A-Rod is out there for us to get him, those are the two guys to have on the job.
“John Elway, he’s done a great job of working the big-time guys before — Peyton (Manning) and DeMarcus (Ware) and Aqib (Talib) — all these other guys. So if there’s a guy to be had, G.P. and John Elway are the two to put on it, if it can be done. If it can’t, I’m comfortable with Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater. They’ve impressed the hell out of me and impressed the hell out of everybody during OTAs.
“So I’m super excited for those guys. Another year for Drew Lock, I think this will be the time for him to turn it on. So either way we go, it’s looking bright for us.”
Meanwhile, Rodgers said he would “figure things out in a couple of weeks” when asked about his future.
