Denver Broncos Interested in Josh McCown, Brian Hoyer?
With the Denver Broncos still searching for a quarterback, it appears as if two veterans set to be released are on John Elway’s radar in Cleveland Browns’ Josh McCown and Houston Texans’ Brian Hoyer.
It appears as if the quarterback search is not over yet for the Denver Broncos. Then again, this is something that we already knew.
With Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian on the active roster, the Denver Broncos are in the search for another quarterback. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, two names have popped up on John Elway’s radar.
Those names are Josh McCown and Brian Hoyer. The quarterback’s played for the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans respectfully. Both teams are looking to trade or release the quarterback’s after acquiring new one’s during the free agency period.
The Browns got Robert Griffin III while the Houston Texans acquired former Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler.
According to the latest reports, the Texans and Hoyer are “getting close” to a divorce. So it will not be long now before the two part ways.
I know that the Denver Broncos did well in their Super Bowl season without stellar quarterback play, but Hoyer and McCown? As a fan, I am not sure I would like the idea of either one. Both are journeyman quarterback’s who have not done a lot in their careers to impress anyone.
Hoyer’s performance in the AFC Wild Card game was abysmal. McCown was surrounded by an off team and even had some injuries.
If these are the only two options in the world for the Broncos at quarterback and I had to absolutely pick one, I would have to go with Brian Hoyer. Only reason I would is he is younger than McCown and has better career numbers.
In my opinion, I was going to be alright with the Denver Broncos settling in on Sanchez, Trevor Siemian, and a quarterback in this year’s draft. But this could change things up if Elway acquires one of these “soon to be free agents.”

Don’t forget, this will only be possible if the Broncos do not acquire Colin Kaepernick via trade. However, the chances of this happening are growing to be very unlikely. It will be something to keep an eye on. But I would not count on it right now.
It will be something to keep an eye on. And we at Predominantly Orange will keep you updated as free agency and the draft develop.
