A few things have to happen before coach Vance Joseph makes the call. Each quarterback has some fine-tuning and studying to do to learn the new offense. And each must be careful in how he spends the rest of the summer vacation.
"As I've said to all the players, not just [the quarterbacks]: Learn the system. That's the most important," offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said before the Broncos adjourned for their summer break. "I consistently say, 'When you leave this office, you have to study.' Everybody has talent; the key is learning [the plays] and knowing what to do. Everybody, including [the quarterbacks], has to put themselves in a position to come back here for camp ready to compete for a job."
Siemian and Lynch, along with the team's running backs, wide receivers and tight ends, will have a Manning-esque passing camp in Los Angeles in the coming days. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said at minicamp last month that "it's a priority for us to get together," the story went on to say.
