Broncos spotted talking to Quinton Flowers and Jordan Thomas at Shrine Game


Barrett threw for just 69 yards on 5-of-13 passing, but it led the East.

Shimonek finished 12 of 18 for 105 yards and zero interceptions, while splitting snaps with Colorado State's Nick Stevens and Sam Houston State's Jeremiah Briscoe.

Due to a death in the family, Quinton Flowers is leaving the East-West Shrine Game and will not play in the game tomorrow. The Sumrall native caught 31 passes for 311 yards and four touchdowns after transferring in from East Central Community College.

The West squad scored its only other touchdown late in the first quarter off a 68-yard fumble return from Wisconsin's Natrell Jamerson. He was the only 100-yard passer in the game, and had 61 more yards than the rest of the West's quarterbacks combined. It turns out it's hard to run an offense with a bunch of players who've never played together before and mostly never will again. The game will air live on NFL Network.

Here are some observations from Saturday's game.

The East-West Shrine game gives notable National Football League draft prospects an opportunity each year to showcase their talents on a nationally televised stage with many National Football League scouts in attendance.

With Flowers missing the game, Barrett shared playing time with Memphis' Riley Ferguson, who set up a first-half field goal with a 38-yard completion to Fountain.
