The Denver Broncos made some major news yesterday afternoon after the acquisition of Vikings’ former first pick, Teddy Bridgewater, from the Carolina Panthers. Denver sent out a sixth picks tour in exchange for the driver QB, and they promptly restructured his deal to create roof space. Bridgewater’s last year has now ended, and he is only owed $ 4.5m in 2021.
So, what does this have to do with Minnesota? Well, that’s not the latest QB news within the division due to what’s happening in Green Bay. However, the Bridgewater contract restructuring gives Denver the option to continue to pursue QB in the draft, specifically Trey Lance or Justin Fields.
For this reason, there is really no need to keep Drew Lock. He’s got his shot as a core player over the past two seasons and his performance has been lackluster. And because of that, there’s a new rattle that Denver Lock out could charge if they picked out the quarterback tonight. The two teams associated with such a trade at this time are the Minnesota Vikings and the Carolina Panthers.
Locke is under contract until 2022, but he’s not ordering much in terms of cap. It is worth only $ 1.9 million in 2021 and $ 2.2 million in 2022. It was discussed at length here in Ufa! Sports, but the Vikings could definitely use an improvement in the reserve midfielder. Kirk Cousins (knocking wood) was in good health up to this point in his career, but it would be nice if someone other than his name Sean Manion would support him in case that luck ran out.
Locke showed flashes of talent, but she hasn’t really succeeded up to this point in his career. At the start of his 18 career, he was 8–10 while throwing 3,953 yards, 23 TDs, and 18 INTs while completing 59.1% of his passes. Not the largest number for beginners, but hey, you can do much worse with a backup. The Vikings usually have it, and if their old friend George Patton manages to cut a deal, it might be time to make a move.
