All signs point to Osweiler replacing Siemian as Denver Broncos QB

And for all the struggles Osweiler had previous year as a hired gun for the Houston Texans, he posted an 8-6 record in the regular season, then played well in defeating the Oakland Raiders in a first-round playoff game.

A few bleary-eyed hours studying game film early Tuesday morning wasn't enough time for Joseph to make that decision. Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway said Osweiler needed "football rehab" when Osweiler was signed just before the start of the regular season.

Kelly, aka "Mr. Irrelevant" in the 2017 NFL Draft, practiced for the first time this year for the Broncos.

After a poor offensive performance on in Kansas City on Monday night, Broncos coach Vance Joseph has decided to make a change at the quarterback position. Instead, Osweiler bolted to Houston in free agency for $37 million in guarantees and Siemian won the Broncos job instead. The Broncos may look to trade him next offseason and move on with Osweiler, Lynch or someone else.

Osweiler showed flashes of success when he replaced Peyton Manning at the end of the 2015 season and finished with a 5-2 record. Lynch started two games as a rookie last season and went 1-1.

About 20 months ago, members of the Denver Broncos were hoisting the Lombardi trophy over their heads to celebrate a Super Bowl title, while the Eagles were preparing to start anew under recently introduced head coach Doug Pederson.

But to put him in against Philadelphia and New England in back-to-back weeks with virtually no practice following a two-month injury to his right, throwing shoulder? As for what the Eagles' defense should expect, let's just hope Osweiler comes out a little rusty, and shows similarities of the quarterback that struggled all of a year ago with the Texans.

"If a switch is made, it will be considered what's best for the football team, " Joseph said. "When you've lost three games in a row and you've had the turnovers like we've had them. that's not good".
