Trevor Siemian (age 25—Broncos)

New Denver coach Vance Joseph has announced there would be an open quarterback competition between Siemian and 2016 1st round pick Paxton Lynch. Don’t believe it. I fully expect the Broncos to acquire Tony Romo from Dallas, and they drafted Lynch in the first round for a reason. Siemian, a 7th round pick in 2015 from Northwestern, went 8-6 as a starter for the defending super bowl champions. He began 3-0 as a starter, then struggled after injuring his shoulder in a week four victory over Tampa Bay. Siemian was held back by perhaps the worst offensive line in the league, and a coach in Gary Kubiak that evidently stopped believing in the forward pass years ago. Siemian is by no means a

Final Verdict: Siemian is by no means a long-term starter, but he is a capable passer who could succeed in a solid system. His contract does not expire until 2018, but a cap number of around 700,000/year makes it possible that a team like the Saints could take a look into acquiring Siemian for a lower round or conditional pick.
