Denver Broncos Road To 53: Quarterbacks

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

With training camp set to start at the end of next month, teams are starting to put a generalized depth chart together to work on putting together a 53-man roster. All throughout training camp and the preseason, the depth chart is always changing. Some players will rise, while others will fall.

For the Denver Broncos, there are many players who are already guaranteed a spot for one reason or another. It is no different for the quarterback position. Everyone knows who the top two quarterbacks are for the Denver Broncos. The question is, will they carry three or only two? Personally, I believe they will carry only two, but more on that later.

Peyton Manning-

What is there to be said? Peyton Manning is obviously,not only guaranteed a roster spot, but is the guaranteed starter as well. He is a first ballot Hall of Famer who came off, not only his best statistical year, but the best statistical year for any QB, setting multiple records in the process.

Brock Osweiler-

The Broncos coaching staff firmly believes in Brock Osweiler as the future of the franchise. Meanwhile, the fans are split on just what Osweiler will do in a Broncos uniform. With the coaches certainty in Osweiler, he is a lock to make to roster as Peyton’s backup.

The Denver Broncos also have Zac Dysert and Bryn Renner on the o-fseason roster. If the Broncos do carry three QBs, the last one will come down between these two. However, like I stated earlier, I believe they will carry only two. Last year it was reported that Zac Dysert only made the roster out of fear of losing him on waivers before they could claim him and put him on the practice squad. This year, that shouldn’t be an issue, especially with Renner being an option as well. The spot a third QB would take, could be better utilized for another position.

So there you have it, the Broncos two quaterbacks for the 2014 season, Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.

    As you know, I am of the opinion that the Broncos should trade Osweiler while they can. His rookie deal will expire before Peyton Manning retires, in all likelihood. Recent reports and Manning’s own words, support this. Oz will want to take a market value contract while he’s still in his prime, rather than “hope” that Manning hangs it up soon. Might as well trade him and get value, otherwise he’s a wasted pick. Compensatory won’t return the equivalent of a 2nd rounder.

    Great write up.

      I’d rather keep him as a backup.
      Manning hasn’t missed a meaningful snap in two seasons for us, but that doesn’t mean he never will. I’d rather have our best backup possible rather than whatever we can get from Brock in a trade.

      I think they will think about it after this season. Teams will be more interested in a young QB with one year left that way they can see what he does and gauge his worth, instead of two years or picking him up as a free agent. If the Broncos don’t consider it or don’t trade him then it makes me think they are in full intentions of re-signing him. No one knows just what Brock will be offered when he hits the open market. All eyes should be on Ryan Mallet after this season.
