Joe Flacco has zero interest in mentoring Drew Lock

Flacco addressed the media on the first day of the Broncos' organized team activities, and one of the questions he fielded surrounded providing mentorship to rookie Drew Lock, whom Denver selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Asked Monday about any possible motivation from the addition of Lock, Flacco acknowledged it was at least somewhat of a factor. If Lock is going to start, it likely won't be until 2020, which means there's definitely no quarterback controversy in Denver and new coach Vic Fangio made that clear on Monday. There are times where you have to be selfish. "Then we have an open competition after that and we'll randomly play those with the twos and the threes when we do our reps". Listen, I hope he does learn from me. "I hope he does learn from me because that means we're out there lighting it up". Because he's going to learn by watching us do it and watching us do it well.

"Because he's going to learn by watching us do it and watching us do it well".

Pressed if Lock's presence served as any sort of motivator, Flacco said, "I think I've talked about that before, too". Flacco gets paid to be a starting quarterback - not the quarterbacks coach. "I think that is, like I sad, kind of Rich's job. It's to be in that quarterback room and watch", Flacco said. That's how you can develop.

"Listen, I have so many things to worry about", Flacco said. "Whether it's 10 or whatnot, the only thing I care about is, like I said, I want this team to be as good as they can with me at quarterback. I'm trying to go out there and play the best football of my life", Flacco said according to ESPN.

Nonetheless, Broncos general manager John Elway said last month he believes Flacco, at age 34, is "a guy coming into his prime". That is what it is. That is what it is, and like I said, I hope he does develop. "My job as I see it is to go out there and play quarterback and win football games and that's what I'm trying to do". "He had a great season past year, and being the person he is, he always was helping me whenever I did something he thought he could help me improve on. We have a great relationship, still, going forward". He writes about baseball and has a quirky blog that augments The Star's coverage of area teams.
