Report: Broncos will try to move Trevor Siemian

Well that answers the question of who the Denver Broncos aim to keep in 2018. It reportedly won’t be Trevor Siemian.

According to Mike Klis of 9News on Orange and Blue 760, the Denver Broncos have identified Trevor Siemian as the quarterback they will most likely try to move this offseason. Klis also confirmed that Brock Osweiler will not be pursued at all during free agency.

Siemian won the starting job over Paxton Lynch in both 2016 and 2017. For his career, he is 13-11 as a starter, completing 59.3% of his passes for 5,686 yards with 30 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. However, it was likely his play in 2017 that cost him a chance at sticking around in Denver long-term as he became turnover prone.

This report also suggests that Elway wants to keep Lynch around a little longer in the hopes of the former first-round pick doing something to justify a roster spot. The reasoning behind this line of thinking is because I find it unlikely the team will get rid of all of their quarterbacks in one offseason.

I asked early today what the Broncos should do with both Siemian and Lynch. It looks like we may have an early indication of an answer here.
