Report: Broncos finally sign second-round pick Drew Lock

Reports indicated that Lock, the No. 42 pick in April’s draft, had been seeking a quarterback premium and threatened to not report to camp on time in order to get it.
It’s a rather inauspicious start to Lock’s NFL career. The Broncos like him and view him as a project for the future, but it sounds like the former Missouri quarterback wasn’t interested in being paid like a project. Ultimately, he’ll be in camp as scheduled, likely backing up newly-acquired veteran Joe Flacco.
