Could the Broncos use Trevor Siemian as trade bait? Adam Schefter of ESPN.com wonders aloud if Denver could shop the quarterback at some point given that Paxton Lynch is their signal caller of the future.

By the same token, the Broncos are 3-0 and they’re obviously not looking to jettison their starter right now.
