Broncos’ veteran QB Joe Flacco said he doesn’t care if the team drafts a quarterback at No. 10 overall, as long is it is “understood” that he is the starter.
“I don’t care whether they take a QB at 10,” said Flacco, via Mike Klis of 9News. “The only thing I care about is I want this team to be as good as they can with me at QB. … I’m all for getting the guy who can add value to the team with me as the understood QB.’’
Flacco said the Broncos drafting a quarterback is “obviously” not the “utmost importance“, but it is “out of my control” if they do so.
“I want this team to be the best with me at QB. Obviously that’s not of utmost importance to draft a QB. But if we do that’s out of my control. I’m going to go out and compete and he’s going to have to come out here and be on the field with me every day, too,” said Flacco, via Klis.
