ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Whether it be salary, importance to the game, talent or potentially even looks, all eyes are nearly always on the quarterback in the National Football League. Especially the great ones.
In Denver, however, all eyes haven’t been on the quarterback since a certain No. 18 left town after winning Super Bowl 50, and if you didn’t know anything else about the Denver Broncos' quarterback situation since, that’s all you would need to know.
After failing to find a franchise quarterback since Peyton Manning retired, it is heavily believed that will be John Elway’s No. 1 priority—among a laundry list of other improvements—he’ll address in the off-season.
With Elway stating, “I will do my part to hopefully get this thing turned around next year” at the beginning of December, there is significant reason to believe that the team will turn to free agency, and not the draft, to address the quarterback position.
