Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch To Compete For Starting Job In Denver

The Denver Broncos roster could undergo some changes this off-season, but Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch are staying put at the quarterback position. It is expected that they will compete for the starting job as the team's general manager and coaches spoke highly of the young players. 

Last year, after winning Super Bowl 50, the Broncos roster experienced a shakeup especially following the retirement of the former franchise quarterback, Peyton Manning. The team made some moves, like the signing of Mark Sanchez who was released in September. However, it is different this time around since they are more comfortable with Siemian and Lynch around. 

ESPN reported that in an introduction ceremony for the Broncos' new coaching staff, Coach Vance Joseph expressed confidence in Siemian and Lynch. He called the two "smart" and said he is "committed" to them. Joseph added that they must build around these quarterbacks as this will help them improve their game. 

Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy also stated that he is pleased with Siemian and Lynch, and the priority at the moment is to get them "ready to play." Broncos GM John Elway is also content with the quarterbacks they currently have on the team.

This means the Broncos have little to no plans of looking for a third quarterback. Siemian and Lynch will be the ones competing for the starting job when the preseason preparations commence, although nothing is certain for now and in the months ahead of the 2017 season. 

Denver is still considered a potential destination for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Many believe that Romo is leaving his longtime team with rookie Dak Prescott taking over the position in Big D. The veteran has been linked to the Broncos several times since the departure of Manning. 

Adding Romo would be interesting, but the Cowboys, at least at this point, are focused on Siemian and Lynch. Last season, both of them showed that they can play and handle the starting job. Siemian had 14 starts in as many games, while Lynch started twice in three games.
