QB Brock Osweiler, Broncos make things official

Osweiler will practice with the team Monday.

Osweiler’s return, a surprise to many, caps a wild 18 months that took from Denver to Houston as a handsomely paid free agent ($72 million for four years), then Cleveland via trade and now back to Denver.
