John Elway’s announcement on Monday could be bad news for Drew Lock.

Elway announced that he was giving up his duties as the general manager for the Broncos. He will still be involved in Denver's front office, but the GM will be the decision-maker.

So why is that bad for Lock?

As 9News’ Mike Klis pointed out, nobody with the Broncos had more faith in Lock than Elway.

As long as Elway was there, Lock would have every opportunity to prove himself. Without that Elway protection, Lock’s future is in question. The new GM wouldn’t have the same ties to Lock and could easily part ways with him.

Lock would have to take a major step forward next season to convince a team he might be a franchise QB. The 24-year-old passed for 16 touchdowns and 15 interceptions this season.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
