Vance Joseph Says QB Position Will Be Open Battle


Based on pure experience alone, many assumed Trevor Siemian would be the clear-cut starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos moving forward, but that’s not the case.

When new head coach Vance Joseph was introduced on Thursday, he made it very clear how he views his team’s stance on the most important position in football.

“It’s gonna be an open competition,” Joseph stated.

While Paxton Lynch is still very inexperienced, he may be more naturally gifted than Siemian with his athleticism and the big arm.

“I’ve watched Trevor — obviously he’s got more experience,” Joseph said.

Siemian should be the favorite heading into training camp, however, if Lynch clearly outplays him, don’t be surprised if he’s the starter next fall.
