Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez said Tuesday that he’d like to stay with the Broncos even though he did not win the team’s starting job and intends to keep working as if he will be with the team, at least until he is told he is not.
Coach Gary Kubiak formally named Trevor Siemian the Broncos’ starting quarterback Monday and now has to decide who the team’s No. 2 quarterback will be -- rookie Paxton Lynch or Sanchez. That leaves Sanchez, who did not play in this past Saturday’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams and will not play Thursday night in Arizona unless Lynch needs to come out of the preseason finale for some reason, with an uncertain future after he had arrived in Denver calling his place with the Broncos "an opportunity of a lifetime."
Needless to say, Sanchez's fate is in limbo, the story said. There have been reports the team is offering him up in trade talks, specifically to the Cowboys. He's an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
