The Denver Broncos named Teddy Bridgewater their quarterback on Wednesday, and that is good news for the Las Vegas Raiders.
Big news for the Las Vegas Raiders and the rest of the AFC West, as the Denver Broncos have announced that Teddy Bridgewater will be the starting quarterback for the team. This was not shocking, as Bridgewater only had to be somewhat consistent to beat out inconsistent incumbent Drew Lock, and it was made official on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old veteran had a very strong preseason for the Broncos, and this ultimately led to his winning of the job over the 24-year-old Lock. So how will the veteran winning the job over the young upstart fare for the Broncos? Time will certainly tell, but it would seem that currently, this is a loss for the Broncos.
First off, you have to dig deep into what Bridgewater brings to the Broncos. He has never been a superstar to any extent. His play has surely has not lived up to being selected in the first round back in 2014. What the veteran brings to the Broncos is a more steady hand than Lock’s erratic play.
With that said, let us take a dive into Bridgewater’s career, and how him being named the starter affects the Raiders and the AFC West.
