The Broncos Are Reportedly Signing Brock Osweiler

Brace yourself Broncos fans, Brock Osweiler is once again in orange and blue.

The Broncos picked up Osweiler with the No. 57 overall pick in the 2012 Draft, the same year Peyton Manning signed his five-year contract with Denver. Trevor Siemian has been named Denver's starter entering the regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on September 11.

Osweiler will be the back up to Siemian as Paxton Lynch, the 2016 first-round draft pick, recovers from a sprained shoulder.

Broncos general manager John Elway confirmed the signing on Saturday.

Denver won Super Bowl 50 later that year. The minimum for a sixth-year pro is $775,000.

The 26-year-old spent his first four seasons in Denver, starting seven games during the 2015 season. And Osweiler knows the Broncos' offense, having played there under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Manning then took every snap in the playoffs. But it's amusing that "tall" is one of the first descriptions that comes to mind when his head coach is asked to comment on him. He's been through a lot.

In 18 months, Osweiler went from Denver to Houston to Cleveland and back to Denver. "We know, worst scenario, if something happens to Trev, we know we're confident in our backup quarterback now".

Elway said there are no hard feelings from their previous split. "And so it's just kind of amusing how these things worked out with our situation and Brock being available". I'm not going to live in the past. That was one glaring hole we had at that point in time, in my mind, when Paxton hurt his shoulder. "We've got chemistry (as a quarterback-receiver)".

To say that Osweiler's divorce with the Broncos was contentious would be an understatement.

For their part, Broncos players had quietly said throughout the team's quarterback competition between Siemian and Lynch in training camp that Siemian would emerge as the starter. Osweiler had an identical record in Houston and led the Texans to a win over Oakland in the playoffs before losing to New England.
