Drew Lock must feel entirely unwanted that his name continues to come up in trade proposals and rumors regarding Aaron Rodgers wanting out of Green Bay and Denver being at the top of his list.
The Broncos have long been one of the most discussed teams for a potential Rodgers deal and it has Drew Lock as one of the pieces being sent to Green Bay.
On Monday, Lock responded to the rumors.
“Believe it or not, no,” Lock said, via Michael Spencer of KCNC. “It was not because I decided I was going to develop a plan in this offseason. There were going to be really long days, but it was going to be worth every single second of it because regardless of what happened — if I stayed here or if I left or they brought someone in — my mindset was not going to change. Wherever I went, if I went somewhere or if I stayed here, I was going to be the guy. I put every single ounce I had into that this offseason and being able to do that gave me zero time to listen to all this stuff.”
Lock threw for 2,933 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions across 13 games, missing time due to a right (throwing) shoulder injury.
The No. 42 overall pick of the 2019 draft, Lock, 24, collected $813,674 in base salary over his sophomore campaign, counting roughly $1.59 million against the cap.
