When the Broncos traded for quarterback Mark Sanchez — and didn’t acquire any other quarterbacks this offseason — it appeared that he was set to be the team’s starter. But there’s no guarantee of that.
Troy Renck of the Denver Post thinks Sanchez has only a “slight edge” over Siemian heading into training camp, and Renck thinks Sanchez has to win the job over Siemian, as opposed to the job being Sanchez’s to lose.
The story went on to say Siemian has the advantage that he’s the only Broncos quarterback who has spent a year in Kubiak’s offense. Lynch isn’t expected to be ready to start in Week One, but the Broncos didn’t draft him in the first round to sit him on the bench forever. So Sanchez needs to look good in training camp and the preseason to earn the job, and he needs to play well to keep the job. Sanchez's recently history with the Eagles shows he did play well at times but can play poorly other times. Even if he earns the job, he's likely not to keep it.
