Broncos Working To Trade Mark Sanchez

The Broncos are working to trade Mark Sanchez as the 53-man deadline approaches, a source tells Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter).Mark Sanchez (vertical)

Denver has announced that Trevor Siemian will be under center when the Broncos open the season in Week 1. As such, it’s unlikely that Sanchez is a fit for the Denver roster unless he’s the backup signal-caller. With first-round pick Paxton Lynch pushing him for that role, Sanchez’s cap hit isn’t palatable for a No. 3 QB.

While Siemian is only due to earn a minimum salary during the upcoming season, Sanchez is scheduled to count $4.5MM on Denvers’ salary cap, $1MM of which is guaranteed. Sanchez can also earn another $3MM through incentives, but the Broncos could clear $3.5MM off their books by trading him before the start of the season.
