Camp Takeaways: Trevor Siemian is making his move

The Denver Broncos have a quarterback problem. Their solution? To be determined.

Mark Sanchez has and continues to be the easy answer. He’s the only option of the three to have actually attempted a pass in the NFL, and when working with an elite supporting cast, not unlike the Broncos roster surrounding him, he’s been solid. And while Paxton Lynch is the exciting solution, it certainly isn’t the prudent one.

But what about Trevor Siemian?

Despite being the only passer in Denver with experience in the Gary Kubiak offense, Siemian’s chances of starting Week 1 for the Broncos against the Carolina Panthers have seemed like a pipe dream, at best; a fun story created to show that Kubiak and Elway are conducting a fair and equal quarterback competition.

But … maybe there is a chance?

Siemian most certainly has not won himself the job, but he’s done enough to keep Sanchez from running away from the rest of the pack, as evidenced by their co-starter designation on the team’s first depth chart of the season. And based on reports out of the UCHealth Training Center, he’s earned it. Some may even argue that he’s earned more — the starting gig, outright.

Safe to say, it was interesting day down at camp, and in case you missed it, here’s what you need to know.
