George Paton said : "I like seeing Drew here every morning when I come in. He’s working hard and trending in the right direction. As you know, he has a lot of talent. I think he’s becoming a better pro, but we’re still going to look at the quarterback position. I’ve said since I’ve gotten here that we want to bring in competition. That’s the goal, and we plan on doing that.”Bridgewater became available when the Panthers traded for former Jets QB Sam Darnold three weeks ago. Bridgewater went 4-11 as the Panthers' starter last year and struggled to win close games down the stretch. He completed 69.1% of his passes, throwing 15 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.Those numbers are better than Lock's. The third-year pro from Missouri tied for the league lead with 15 interceptions in 13 starts and his passer rating ranked 32nd in the NFL last season. He was 4-9 overall with 16 touchdown throws and is 8-10 in two years as Denver’s starter.After missing most of his rookie season with a thumb injury on his throwing hand, Lock missed 2 1-2 games with a rotator cuff injury to his throwing shoulder and another for COVID-19 tracing in 2020.Bridgewater has a 26-23 career record as a starter over his six seasons in Minnesota, New Orleans and Carolina.The Broncos have struggled for years to find a suitable replacement for Peyton Manning, who retired a month after Denver's 24-10 win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50 and is headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.Manning's induction in Canton, Ohio, further highlights the franchise's serpentine search for a competent successor. The Broncos are the first team in NFL history to go five years without a playoff appearance following a championship parade, and they've had four consecutive losing seasons for the first time since ending a decade-long stretch of sub-.500 records in 1973.Among the washouts were first-round bust Paxton Lynch, the worst pick in former GM John Elway's tenure, trade dud Joe Flacco, and free agent flop Case Keenum.It was widely believed Bridgewater wouldn't become available until after the draft and maybe wouldn't join a new team until June. But, according to the NFL Network, the Panthers agreed to pay a portion of Bridgewater's salary in 2021.Bridgewater's three-year, $63 million contract signed last year calls for him to make $10 million guaranteed and up to $7 million more in 2021.The Panthers have the eighth overall pick in the draft and with Darnold in the fold can target other areas of need including offensive tackle, linebacker, tight end or cornerback. “Acquiring Teddy Bridgewater adds competition, experience and a strong veteran presence to our quarterback room," External link

George Paton said : "Until we get — or until Drew proves to be the next great quarterback like the ones that the Denver franchise has been used to in years past or the ones certain teams around the league have ... we’re going to always try and bring in competition. But I have confidence that Drew can continue to improve”. Lock did show growth in the back half of the season, throwing for nine touchdowns and five interceptions, with an average of 239.33 passing yards per game, compared to his first seven starts that saw seven touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 213.86 average. But the idea of bringing in a veteran, like Andy Dalton or Alex Smith or Ryan Fitzpatrick, is probably smart if Lock doesn't progress the way Paton and Fangio hope he does. That's why Paton is spending a good amount of his time studying other quarterbacks, even if he has all the faith in the world that Lock can be the guy. “There is so much that goes into that when evaluating a quarterback," External link

George Paton said : "I like seeing Drew here every morning when I come in. He’s working hard and trending in the right direction. As you know, he has a lot of talent. I think he’s becoming a better pro, but we’re still going to look at the quarterback position. I’ve said since I’ve gotten here that we want to bring in competition. That’s the goal, and we plan on doing that.”Bridgewater became available when the Panthers traded for former Jets QB Sam Darnold three weeks ago. Bridgewater went 4-11 as the Panthers' starter last year and struggled to win close games down the stretch. He completed 69.1% of his passes, throwing 15 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.Those numbers are better than Lock's. The third-year pro from Missouri tied for the league lead with 15 interceptions in 13 starts and his passer rating ranked 32nd in the NFL last season. He was 4-9 overall with 16 touchdown throws and is 8-10 in two years as Denver’s starter.After missing most of his rookie season with a thumb injury on his throwing hand, Lock missed 2 1-2 games with a rotator cuff injury to his throwing shoulder and another for COVID-19 tracing in 2020.Bridgewater has a 26-23 career record as a starter over his six seasons in Minnesota, New Orleans and Carolina.The Broncos have struggled for years to find a suitable replacement for Peyton Manning, who retired a month after Denver's 24-10 win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50 and is headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.Manning's induction in Canton, Ohio, further highlights the franchise's serpentine search for a competent successor. The Broncos are the first team in NFL history to go five years without a playoff appearance following a championship parade, and they've had four consecutive losing seasons for the first time since ending a decade-long stretch of sub-.500 records in 1973.Among the washouts were first-round bust Paxton Lynch, the worst pick in former GM John Elway's tenure, trade dud Joe Flacco, and free agent flop Case Keenum.It was widely believed Bridgewater wouldn't become available until after the draft and maybe wouldn't join a new team until June. But, according to the NFL Network, the Panthers agreed to pay a portion of Bridgewater's salary in 2021.Bridgewater's three-year, $63 million contract signed last year calls for him to make $10 million guaranteed and up to $7 million more in 2021.The Panthers have the eighth overall pick in the draft and with Darnold in the fold can target other areas of need including offensive tackle, linebacker, tight end or cornerback. “Acquiring Teddy Bridgewater adds competition, experience and a strong veteran presence to our quarterback room," External link

George Paton said : "Until we get — or until Drew proves to be the next great quarterback like the ones that the Denver franchise has been used to in years past or the ones certain teams around the league have ... we’re going to always try and bring in competition. But I have confidence that Drew can continue to improve”. Lock did show growth in the back half of the season, throwing for nine touchdowns and five interceptions, with an average of 239.33 passing yards per game, compared to his first seven starts that saw seven touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 213.86 average. But the idea of bringing in a veteran, like Andy Dalton or Alex Smith or Ryan Fitzpatrick, is probably smart if Lock doesn't progress the way Paton and Fangio hope he does. That's why Paton is spending a good amount of his time studying other quarterbacks, even if he has all the faith in the world that Lock can be the guy. “There is so much that goes into that when evaluating a quarterback," External link
