The Peyton Manning era is over in Denver and we now know who will be the new starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos. Earlier today, the Denver Broncos made the announcement that former Northwestern quarter Trevor Siemian would be the new starting quarterback of the Broncos.
According to denverbroncos.com,
Head Coach Gary Kubiak announced to the team Monday morning that Siemian will be the team’s starting quarterback, bringing down the curtain on a competition that had been the team’s dominant story of the offseason and training camp.
Kubiak informed Siemian, Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch of his decision prior to sharing it with the entire team.
Siemian and Sanchez were considered “neck and neck” by Kubiak at the end of OTAs and through the first few weeks of training camp, but Siemian nudged ahead thanks to his work in camp and in the three preseason games to date.
He started the last two games, directing a touchdown drive in each contest during three and a half quarters of work.
Siemian finished the preseason with 27 completions in 43 attempts for 285 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, and guided the offense to 1.86 adjusted points per possession and 1.64 actual points per possession, the best among the three quarterbacks
Siemian starting week 1 will make him the first quarterback in NFL to take over a defending Super Bowl champion with zero pass attempts.
