Trevor Siemian Likely Auditioning For Roster Spot in 2018

OAKLAND, CA - NOVEMBER 26: Quarterback Trevor Siemian /

With Trevor Siemian’s flaws during the 2017 season, his games with Paxton Lynch sidelined will likely determine his future with the Broncos.

November 26th, 2017 was supposed to be the start of what a possible future Broncos Country had with Paxton Lynch at quarterback. An ineffective performance followed up by an injury ended that. Now Trevor Siemian, who started the season at quarterback, is back under center again.

For the first two games of the 2017 season, Trevor Siemian appeared to have the future locked up at the quarterback position. Once teams caught on, he started making careless mistakes. The team finally saw enough and replaced him with Brock Osweiler after a 3-4 start.

Three games was not enough for Osweiler to hold on to the job. With Lynch finally healthy, he started last week. However, he did not finish. Now Trevor Siemian will make his eighth start of the season.

I honestly believe that Trevor Siemian is playing for a roster spot in 2018. If he can perform well during these next few starts, he could be back in Denver as a potential backup. Siemian came into the Raiders game with his team down 21-0. He almost led the team to a win.

What I am most interested to see is how he will look after sitting on the bench for three and a half games. Miami’s defense is not all that strong. They do have some solid players on the defensive line. But this could be a solid game for Siemian. Going forward, I am not too certain.

If Trevor Siemian has any hopes of wanting to stay in Denver for 2018, he will need the performance of a lifetime for at least two games. I believe Paxton Lynch will get another go if he is healthy before the season ends.

This is your chance Trevor Siemian. If you want to play for Denver, take this chance and run with it.
