The deal appears to be several million more per year than what the Denver Broncos were willing to pay for his services, so that's that.

Since the news broke, several have reported of an apparent split between John Elway and Brock Osweiler coming mostly from Osweiler's end.
I'm told Osweiler was "very distant" during negotiations. showed Broncos he didn't want to come back. Elway refused to play top 10 QB money.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 9, 2016

Next up? Robert Griffin III or Colin Kaepernick. Action coming in for Ryan Fitzpatrick as well. At this point, it's anyone's guess.
