Joe Flacco weighs in on dynamic with Drew Lock

Joe Flacco weighs in on dynamic with Drew Lock

The University of Denver (DU) will honor Denver Broncos Ring of Fame member and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Floyd Little with an honorary Juris Doctor degree and the Distinguished Alumni Award, the university announced Monday.

Flacco met with the media on the first day of organized team activities in Denver on Monday and was asked about providing mentoring services to newly drafted QB Drew Lock. He will not be taking extra effort to put Broncos second-round pick Drew Lock under his wing. Listen, I got so many things to worry about. "Brian was really good at helping them develop as players, and part of it is to insulate those guys so they don't feel the pressure of having to play, building their confidence up and letting them feel confident as a player in your system, in you organization, in their relationships with older vets". "I'm trying to go out there and play the best football of my life", Flacco said according to ESPN. That is what it is, and like I said, I hope he does develop. But I don't look at that as my job. "My job is to win football games".

Lock certainly will learn from Flacco, but he's not going to get one-on-one instruction from the veteran - and that's OK. Sure. But folks are always complaining that the National Football League doesn't have enough personality - and that the NBA develops its player into influencers.

Flacco's underlying message mirrored what he said in April before the draft. Now he's getting flack for it.

Pressed if Lock's presence served as any sort of motivator, Flacco said, "I think I've talked about that before, too". But it's also fair. Offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello is in charge of installing the offense and developing the quarterback talent. Since it's Scangarello's play book, it conceivably makes more sense for Lock to listen to him.

Elway did grant Flacco his wish by selecting Iowa tight end Noah Fant in the first round and Kansas State offensive lineman Dalton Risner in the second round before moving up to draft Lock. Flacco is going through the learning process, just like Lock. However, Jackson was so good in his stead that Flacco remained as the backup even after he was cleared to return. Flacco's earnings in 2019 are not guaranteed at all. "I'm not a selfish person, I don't think".
