The NFL released its 2016 schedule on Thursday, and Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is already looking forward to his team’s face-off with a former teammate.
The Broncos will play the Houston Texans and Brock Osweiler, who left Denver to sign with the Texans as a free agent, in Week 7 on Oct. 24.
“I hope he’s ready,” Marshall said, according to Tony Renck of the Denver Post. “Because we’re coming for him.”
After spending four years backing up Peyton Manning in Denver, Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans in March to become a full–time starter for the first time in his career.
Osweiler made the first seven starts of his career last season while Manning was injured, and posted a 5–2 quarterback record with 1,967 passing yards and 10 touchdowns for the season.
