Will Broncos bring in veteran backup quarterback? ‘That’s always an option,’ says Vic Fangio

I’ve seen some not so good, so I don’t know the answer to that just yet.”Lock, meanwhile, slipped to the second round of the 2019 draft, where the Broncos selected him with the No. 42 overall pick. He badly sprained his thumb in the Broncos’ preseason loss to the 49ers earlier this month.  “That’s always an option,” Fangio told reporters. “But, as you see out there there’s not a lot of them available.”Kevin Hogan is currently listed in the No. 2 spot on Denver’s depth chart while the team also has Brett Rypien on its roster. Hogan, however, has completed just 50% of his passes and thrown an interception in the preseason and Rypien has been inconsistent, as well.  Related News NFL trade rumors: 3 quarterbacks Colts could target after Andrew Luck’s shocking retirement Broncos’ John Elway opens up about 15-year battle with debilitating hand condition The Broncos may be looking to add depth at quarterback. Rookie Drew Lock could start the season on IR after injuring his hand earlier this month, leaving Denver without a reliable backup behind veteran Joe Flacco.
