Bridgewater to Denver

April 28, 2021

One day before the NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos addressed their needs at quarterback trading for Carolina’s Teddy Bridgewater.

The Broncos gave up a sixth-round pick for the king of skinny knees. Last season Bridgewater started 15 games completed 69.1 percent of his passes (nice) for 3,733 yards, with 15 TDs against 11 interceptions. Meanwhile in Mile High, Drew Lock started 13 games completed 57.3 percent of his passes for 2,933 yards with 16 TDs and 15 picks.

Now, DJ will tell you that Lock is still the man while I (Doug) will tell you that it’s Teddy’s job all the way. In truth, no matter who is at the controls, the Denver offense isn’t going to put up points in bunches. Either way, neither man is someone you are selecting early. Even in 2QB and Superflex leagues both are late second choices.

There is minimal value in making a trade, but with the return of Courtland Sutton alongside Jerry Jeudy and Noah Fant, there is upside there.

The moving of Bridgewater solidifies Sam Bradford as the No. 1 option in Carolina. Again, another not a ton of value, but for those looking for loose change in the couch, he’s more dime than nickel.
