Of course, this comes on the heels of the Broncos’ announcement that Trevor Siemian will be the team’s starter for Week 1 of the regular season. With Siemian established as the quarterback of the present and rookie Paxton Lynch as the QB of the future, Sanchez is without a real place on the Broncos’ depth chart after an uninspiring summer.
The Broncos traded for Sanchez this spring as a Plan B in case they were unable to re-sign Brock Osweiler or bring in an established veteran at QB. Denver did not retain Osweiler or land a vet, but Sanchez was unable to win the starting job or even secure the No. 2 role.
