What’s expected of Osweiler in Denver? In the year and a half since Osweiler left Denver, the team turned starting duties over to Trevor Siemian and took Paxton Lynch in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Both players struggled last season and the Broncos missed the playoffs.
Siemian won the starting job this offseason. Osweiler is likely the third option for the Broncos, as soon as Lynch is healthy again:
“We know that Brock can win football games with us. He’s got a lot of experience, so that was one glaring hole we had at that point in time, when Paxton hurt the shoulder,” Elway said.
McCoy said that for an elite player, like Tom Brady, teams would be willing to look past it. But not for Kaepernick.
Michael Vick was McCoy’s teammate in Philadelphia from 2009 through 2013, and McCoy said that Vick’s baggage stemming from his dogfighting conviction was worth it because of his talent.
“He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick,” McCoy said. “You’ll deal with that situation, that attention, that media aspect of it. The good, the bad attention you’ll get. Compared to Kaepernick, it’s like, he’s not really that good of a player to deal with.”
