Broncos likely to name Siemian starter

Broncos likely to name Siemian starter

Siemian, a 2015 seventh-round draft pick out of Northwestern who won the starting job previous year when he beat out veteran Mark Sanchez, quickly surged ahead of Lynch, a first-rounder in 2016 from Memphis, when training camp opened.

"He's our guy", Head Coach Vance Joseph said, adding that Siemian was the "clear-cut victor".

Joseph had split work between the starters in the offseason program, organized team activities, minicamp and training camp.

Through two preseason games, the 25-year-old has completed 14 of 18 attempts for 144 yards and a touchdown. He also led the Broncos with three short scoring drives against the 49ers. "That's why he won the job". "I'm not the coach but I think so".

"Well, I saw Paxton make some plays with his legs, which he should". "He's an athlete. And Trevor, he was solid". He was Trevor. He made good decisions.

"If you name a starter, he's the guy going forward", Joseph said on August 15.

Siemian passed for 3,401 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 14 starts last season, while Lynch passed for 497 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in three appearances, including two starts. Lynch is 15-of-22 for 81 yards with zero touchdowns and a passer rating of 74.2.

"The time frame's not important", Joseph said Saturday night.

Joseph did not commit to a starter after the second preseason game.

Among projected Week 1 starters, Siemian's quarterback rating of 118.5 over the last two weeks ranks 11th. He hasn't thrown an interception.
