New, comments

The Denver Broncos will get some good value from Trevor Siemian, but won’t capitalize on it until the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Denver Broncos have finalized their trade with the Minnesota Vikings for Trevor Siemian. Denver will receive a 2019 fifth-round pick and send a 2018 seventh-round pick to Minnesota.

That is good value for a player not expected to be a starting quarterback again any time soon. Siemian will join Kirk Cousins and former-Broncos quarterback Kyle Sloter on a team loaded with talent and Super Bowl aspirations.

Siemian spent three seasons with the Broncos, winning the Week 1 starting job in both 2016 and 2017. He finished his career in Denver completing 59% of his passes for 5,686 yards, 30 touchdowns and 24 interceptions for a quarterback rating of 79.9. The Broncos were 13-11 with him as the starting quarterback.
