Denver Broncos name Trevor Siemian starting QB

The Denver Broncos were left with a sticky situation at quarterback after they won Super Bowl 50 in February. Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler signed with the Houston Texans in free agency, leaving the team to draft Paxton Lynch, trade for Mark Sanchez and hope that Trevor Siemian could step up.

It certainly seems like the latter has done just that as Siemian has won the battle to be the Broncos’ starting quarterback for at least the season-opener.

This will be his first career start in his short two-year career.

Siemian has been impressive for the Broncos in their first three preseason games this year. He has gone 27-of-43 for 285 yards and a touchdown. He still has a long way to go, but he will likely be able to ride the back of receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, along with running back CJ Anderson.

The Broncos open the season on Thursday, Sept. 8 in a Super Bowl rematch against the Carolina Panthers.
