All signs point to Osweiler replacing Siemian as Denver Broncos QB

Brock Osweiler has supplanted Trevor Siemian as the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback, two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Unless Osweiler plays really well, the Broncos will likely hand over the reigns to Lynch when he is fully healthy and ready to play.

Things never clicked for Osweiler and the Texans - he completed just 59 percent of his passes for 2,957 yards, 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in one season - and he was traded to the Browns in March.

The last time Brock Osweiler started with the Denver Broncos, they went on to win the Super Bowl. Joseph wants to talk to Siemian and Osweiler first, then his players before making the announcement. And for all the struggles Osweiler had past year as a hired gun for the Houston Texans, he posted an 8-6 record in the regular season, then played well in defeating the Oakland Raiders in a first-round playoff game.

Upon his return, Osweiler held an extraordinary news conference filled with honesty, humility and humor. When considering Osweiler had one of the league's most unsafe threats to work in at wide receiver in DeAndre Hopkins, these kind of numbers are inexcusable for a quarterback that originally earned a $72 million deal with the Texans.

The Broncos have yet to officially announce the switch.

Osweiler was originally drafted by the Broncos and went 5-2 as the starting quarterback but was relegated to the backup role once the team signed future Hall-of-Fame QB Peyton Manning. He was cut by Cleveland during training camp and signed to be Denver's backup ahead of its season opener in September. Lynch, a first-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2016, lost the competition for the starting job to Siemian in August for the second straight year.

"Obviously, Paxton is still healing up", Joseph said.

His first opportunity will come against arguably the best team in the National Football League, the Philadelphia Eagles. Joseph said he would take his time to make the call and planned to meet Tuesday evening with Elway, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave. Vance Joseph informed his team Wednesday morning.

"When you're football team is putting in max effort and the defense is playing good football, it's unfair to your team if you're not discussing that position, " Joseph said. "I think it's fair to examine that position and all positions".
