Earlier this week, the Denver Broncos lost quarterback Brock Osweiler, in free agency, to the Houston Texans. Despite trading for Mark Sanchez, he is likely not going to be their starter so they have approached former New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
It was reported early Sunday morning that the Broncos were interested in Fitzpatrick. However, the team doesn’t want meet his price and are only looking to bring him in on their own price.
Fitzpatrick has spent most of his career as a journeyman jumping around the league. He was drafted in 2005 by the former St. Louis Rams and has played with six different teams in his career.
Ryan Fitzpatrick had his best statistical season in 2015, leading them to a 10-6 record and just missing the playoffs. He threw for nearly 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns against 15 interceptions.
It still seems like the Broncos will end up drafting a quarterback at some point in April, but if they are willing to shell out the cash, they could find him earlier than then.
