The Denver Broncos added another arm, signing Colorado State quarterback Nick Stevens. But what does he bring to the table for the team?
When we all thought that the Denver Broncos would not be adding another quarterback to the roster, John Elway comes out of left field. This time, the team brought in Nick Stevens to be the team’s fourth quarterback.
Stevens is a product of Colorado State. It will certainly help having a hometown guy in the Broncos system. During his time as a Ram, Nick Stevens threw for over 8,500 yards with 70 touchdowns and 29 interceptions.
After going undrafted, he participated in the minicamps of the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers. Both teams decided to release him. Now Nick Stevens will be entering his third minicamp as he wears number five for the Denver Broncos.
But where does the quarterback fit in these plans? We all heard that John Elway was not going to be bringing in a fourth quarterback. Yet, here we are.
This could just be a camp body. The roster was at 89 after Lowell Lotulelei retired from football just a few weeks after the Denver Broncos signed him.
The best thought is that he could help push Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly. Both are battling for the backup spot behind Case Keenum.
While it has been a custom for the Denver Broncos to have four quarterbacks, it strikes as odd that there would be a fourth after hearing the post draft presser. It is what it is, I suppose.
It would be a surprise for the ages if Nick Stevens was able to make the roster or land on the practice squad after everything is said and done. We will get to see him in action this week in the third phase of OTA’s. Let’s see what he can do.
