Baltimore Ravens Choose Not To Extend QB Contract In Surprise Move; Denver Broncos: Who Will Be The Starting Quarterback?

Written by Chris Powers

2021 has been the year of quarterback to controversy throughout the NFL, and that is no different for the Baltimore Ravens.

In a surprise move, the Ravens have decided to to extend/renew the contract of backup quarterback Kenji Bahar. While it is not surprising that Bahar was released, the assumption was that he would not have been cut this soon. The thought process is that Bahar was likely brought in to simply be another “arm” for the minicamps and posed little to no threat to Baltimore’s other backups, Tyler Huntley and Trace McSorley.

In other NFL news, there is even more quarterback controversy in Denver. Who will be the Broncos starting quarterback in 2021? Last year, it was Drew Lock who had moderate success. But some sources are stating that recently signed veteran quarterback Teddy Bridgewater may be getting the nod. Below you can read what Broncos head coach Vic Fangio had to say on the subject:

“Teddy has been in all of the meetings from the day we got him,” Fangio said. “He just got here last week physically but I saw an improvement in him. I thought he did better than last week. We’re trying to give [the quarterbacks] as much as we can so when we get to training camp, it’s not the first time they’ve heard something.” columnist Greg Rosenthal also had the following to say.

“Bridgewater over Drew Lock makes sense,” he said. “Vic Fangio is a defensive coach with a prospective top-five defense who wants his quarterback to limit turnovers. Bridgewater may not be exciting, but he makes fewer mistakes than Lock and has performed at a far higher level as a pro.”
