It's Siemian and 7th round pick in 2018 to Vikings for 5th round pick in 2019. It adds up to value of 6th round pick for Siemian, who was initially a 7th-round compensatory draft choice. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 14, 2018
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.
