Earlier this week, 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis reported that the Broncos identified Trevor Siemian as the quarterback they will most likely try to move this offseason, well now we have more fuel to add to that fire.
Roster Watch is reporting that the Broncos have several suitors for quarterback Trevor Siemian and that the Atlanta Falcons could have interest after hiring former Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp.
The Broncos are moving on from Trevor Siemian because he failed to be a consistent starting option for them the past two seasons and his injury woes kept him off the field a bit. Also, the Broncos are on the lookout for a new starting quarterback which makes Siemian expendable.
Several teams will be looking for a starting quarterback this offseason including the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Washington, Arizona Cardinals, and the Buffalo Bills. Now, Siemian likely will not be handed a starting job, but he could provide competition for a young first or second round pick.
He could also serve as a steady backup behind an established veteran say like the Atlanta Falcons starter Matt Ryan as they speculated. Matt Schaub is currently Ryan’s backup so Siemian could serve as an upgrade there.
Knapp was Gary Kubiak’s quarterback's coach when the Broncos selected him in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Knapp even went to work Siemian out prior to the draft and was a big supporter of his while in Denver. So you can do some dot connecting there.
I wouldn’t expect much in return for Siemian. A conditional pick that goes up depending on how much he plays for if/when he is dealt this offseason seems like a fair return.
Either way, it appears that Siemian’s time with the Broncos is coming to an end.
