Broncos Expected To Shop Trevor Siemian

The Broncos are expected to make quarterback Trevor Siemian available via trade at the upcoming combine, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise since the Broncos were already expected to make QB a priority this offseason. Trevor Siemian

In 2016, Siemian performed better under center than most expected as he completed 59.5% of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns, and ten interceptions. Unfortunately, Siemian’s third season was a disappointment for Denver. His adjusted net yards per completion dropped by nearly 25%, his total quarterback rating slipped by 25 points. and he threw for only 12 touchdowns against 13 interceptions. The Broncos yanked Siemian from the starting lineup midway through the season and he only regained his job after Brock Osweiler faltered and Paxton Lynch was injured.

Lynch is expected to return in Denver, though not necessarily as the starter. Whether it’s through trades, free agency, or the draft, the Broncos will look to acquire at least one new signal caller. Meanwhile, the Broncos could move Siemian to fill holes elsewhere on the roster.

    They can shop all they want but nfl is not noted for much trading except draft choices during drafts.

        No one wants him for a draft pick, Bats. They’re gonna cut him unless someone splurges with a 7th rounder.

    What is his trade value? Conditional 5th or 6th rounder? I guess if they get Cousins then there isn’t any reason to keep him around

      Yeah I doubt he has much trade value, so the notion that they could move him “to fill holes elsewhere on the roster” seems like a little bit of a stretch unless someone overpays (which is definitely possible, but he has a lot less upside than some other options).

      But yeah, if they get someone like Cousins or even draft a top QB, there’s no reason to keep him. It makes sense to keep Lynch since they just made him a top pick not too long ago, and Osweiler could stay as the veteran backup. Siemian is basically the “what you see is what you get” kind of guy.

    Who would actually give up anything for him? He was a 7th rounder coming out right? He had a decent season and a terrible season. Maybe give up a 6th or 7th for him, but I imagine most teams will wait until he’s released.

      Yeah, maybe a conditional 7th based on how much he plays in 2018? I guess it would basically just be a salary dump for Denver

        But he only makes close to the league minimum, I think he made 600k last year, that’s nothing.

    Maybe get a head of lettuce and a 100.00$ gift card for him, but not much more.

    Most they’d get for him is a late round pick imo.

    Ha! Good luck getting someone to bite. Although you never count out the Browns…

    Trade him for Cousins if he gets tagged lol. Colts should seriously take a look, Pats too. He could be competent in a good system.

    He’s always been a glorified back up. I can c giving up a 5/6th rounder for him as insurance. Maybe a team like the bills who have multiple firsts and a need at QB takes a late round flyer on him being a backup.
