Latest On Brock Osweiler

Brock Osweiler looks to be the Broncos’ quarterback of the future following Peyton Manning‘s Sunday retirement, but there’s just one problem — Osweiler is a free agent. Denver was thought to be negotiating with Osweiler, but according to James Palmer of (Twitter link), the Broncos have not spoken to Osweiler’s reps since making an initial three-year offer several days ago.Brock Osweiler

That offer was said to be worth roughly $39MM — obviously, without knowing the structure or the guarantees, it’s hard to judge how realistic that potential contract might be. But it was always going to be hard to judge Osweiler’s value as a whole, given that he’s started only seven games during his four-year career. Each of those starts came in 2015, but the┬áBroncos (and other clubs) can’t be┬ásure of what they’re getting in Osweiler.

One other team that has expressed interest in Osweiler is the Texans, who are expected to make a “competitive” offer to Osweiler. Per reports, $15-16MM might be the figure Osweiler is targeting. Of course, like any free agent, he cannot officially sign with another club until tomorrow afternoon, but he can agree to terms between now and then.

    15-16 mil a season??? If the Broncos learned anything it’s that they can win with a smart QB. Doesn’t need to be a superstar based on Mannings performance last year.

  2. Sam Robinson

    Now that Malik Jackson is out of the picture, I can easily see the Broncos upping their offer for Osweiler. Losing him would create virtually unprecedented territory for a Super Bowl champ in the free agency era. Osweiler absolutely doesn’t deserve $15-$16MM based on his work so far but based on what the market will pay will probably sign in that vicinity.

    Who would the Broncos go after, if Osweiler signed elsewhere?? It could ugly real quick for their QB situation

    • Chase Daniel sure he never really started but with that defense do they need a Brady like QB. They could try RGlll , Fitz from the jets or trade for kap

      • Crazy idea maybe even try to get Geno smith. Non are Manning but it not like there aren’t options out there

  4. a guy

    Whoa. Nobody’s getting Kap this year. 9ers have few options and a young guy with a big arm and a small brain on contact, they’ll keep him, and probably test him as chip’s starter. I just hope he grows into the role finally
