Broncos Fielding Calls On QB Trevor Siemian

The Broncos have received calls from several clubs with interest in quarterback Trevor Siemian, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.

That Denver is hearing from teams with an eye towards acquiring Siemian should come as no surprise, given both that the Broncos signed fellow quarterback Case Keenum to a two-year deal earlier today and the fact that Denver had been openly shopping Siemian. With Keenum now the Broncos’ starter, and former first-round pick Paxton Lynch likely to serve as the club’s backup, Siemian doesn’t have a role in the Mile High City.

Siemian offered league-average production in 14 games as the Broncos’ starter in 2016, as the former seventh-round pick completed 59.5% of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Last season, however, Siemian struggled mightily, and Denver ultimately turned to Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch under center.

Siemian could conceivably attract interest from any number of teams as a backup quarterback, especially given his price tag. He’ll earn just $1.907MM in 2018 (a raise over his scheduled base salary, thanks to the proven performance escalator), an entirely palatable figure for a No. 2 signal-caller.

      Mccown just got 10M so I think they could get a decent draft pick

    I bet Dallas has called to see the price.. You’d be alright with him starting 2-4 games

    If they get anything above a 6th rounder they’ll be lucky, Trevor will be too, going from a #3 to #2

      Well… they didn’t have a lot of money. And then they signed the first major FA.

      So I’m not sure why people are surprised that they haven’t made any news since. They have no money.

    Trying to think of the team that can’t use a young backup who has starting experience…

    There’s Philly with Wentz and Foles.

    Then there’s the Jets with McCown and Bridgewater.

    And then yea – id say every other team could use a cheap, experienced QB to serve as their back up.

    So are we done here? Can people stop listing their favorite team as one that could use Simien?
