Quarterback Joe Flacco has lived it before.
While with the Baltimore Ravens last year, Flacco watched as the team used a first-round pick on Lamar Jackson. Now with the Denver Broncos, Flacco could have a sense of déjà vu if the Broncosdecide to use the 10th overall pick on a signal-caller in next week's draft.
Should the Broncos go that route, though, Flacco isn't fazed because of his experience in Baltimore.
"I think I had a pretty good outlook on it last year and it is what it is," Flacco told reporters Tuesday, via the Broncos' official website. "I want to get this team to be the best it is with me at the quarterback position. Obviously, that's not of most importance to draft a quarterback, but if we do, that's completely out of my control. I'm going to go out here and I'm going to compete, and he's going to have to come out here and be on the field with me every day, too. So, I'm all ready for that."
On the surface, it more than makes sense for the Broncos to look closely at the quarterback position with an eye to the future when considering Flacco turned 34 in January.
