Jay Gruden says Montez Sweat will play a lot in his rookie season
It could be a handful of weeks before QB Dwayne Haskins usurps the starting role from Case Keenum, but one rookie who is basically a lock to see some early playing time is edge rusher Montez Sweat.

Broncos' GM John Elway describes Case Keenum as "probably a short-term fix," per report
Elway discussed a variety of topics with Peter King for NBC Sports' Football Morning in America on Monday, including Denver's direction at quarterback.

"When we do find that guy, we've got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don't find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.
