Spring is officially in the air.
While the 2020 version of Spring has been a bit different than years past due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is progressing back towards a relative state of normalcy.
Organized Football Activities have been a bit different this year, but that has not stopped Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock for putting in work with his teammates.
Lock returned to the Denver area some time last week after previously quarantining with his parents back in his home state of Missouri.
Upon returning, Lock got to work rather quickly by organizing throwing sessions with different wide receivers, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.

It is not known which receivers Lock has been working with at this time. Lock, and other Broncos players, have been forced to work out away from the team facility and will be unable to return until the league gives the official go-ahead.
Broncos President of Football Operations Joe Ellis announced previously that the organization hopes to reopen the UC Health Training Facility within the next week, specifically by May 25th, according to 9news.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Lock will be the Broncos starting quarterback for the 2020 season. The 2019 second-round pick finished the season with a 4-1 record, which has revved up optimism within the fan base.
Elway went out this offseason and loaded upon the offense with weapons for the young quarterback by signing running back Melvin Gordon and drafting wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler.
Expectations are sky-high for Lock, given the new additions to the offense and his 4-1 record as a starter last season.
Lock was sharp in the five games he started last season, throwing for over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Last season, Lock managed to get his feet wet in the NFL. This offseason is critical to his development as a professional, so it’s encouraging to see he is putting in the work despite the circumstances in the world today.
