In need of a quarterback, Broncos reunite with Brock Osweiler

Fantasy Football Breaking News

That would be the Brock Osweiler, the guy who was their second-round draft pick (57th overall) in 2012 and the guy who bolted from Denver when the Houston Texans dangled a big, $72-million, free agent contract in March 2016.

All of this eventually led to him being let go by the Browns last week after the team chose to go with rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer as the starter for the season opener.

One year later, in an unusual National Football League deal, Houston shipped its 2018 second-round pick to the Browns in exchange for Cleveland agreeing to absorb Osweiler and his unwieldy $16 million payday. Per numerous confirmed reports, Osweiler is signing with the Broncos a day after being dumped by the Cleveland Browns.

"I'm glad to have him back, " said Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Depending on how long Lynch takes to recuperate, Osweiler has the time on work on that in the coming months.

Desperation, thy name is Brock Osweiler. Inside the Broncos' locker room, though, Osweiler's return seemed to lift the spirits of those who were part of that Super Bowl 50 team in 2015. It would be one of the biggest upsets of the season if Siemian, who was voted as one of the captains last season, is not selected again.

The signing is pending his physical on Monday in Denver, but that shouldn't be a problem. We have confidence in that, and feel like if something were to happen that Brock has the experience.

The Browns acquired Osweiler in the offseason but earlier this week waived him after he lost the quarterback battle. The Broncos have uninspiring Trevor Siemian as the starter, while backup Paxton Lynch is injured.

Osweiler went on to start the final six games of the regular season while Manning dealt with a foot injury. Elway's original plan in 2016 was to make Osweiler the starter, and now, not only does he get to go back to that original plan, but he'll likely be able to do it at his own price. "We'll welcome him with open arms and give him some love".

"Now we know if our starting quarterback goes down, Brock's going to come in and do the job".
