Gary Kubiak: I wouldn’t sleep on Trevor Siemian to win QB job
Gary Kubiak believes Trevor Siemian could win the Denver Broncos’ quarterback job, reports The Denver Post’s Troy Renck.
“I think Trevor has a maturity to him. He’s kind of the sleeper, I would say. Trevor knows the offense. He’s very comfortable and can throw the ball too,” Kubiak said. “We’ve also seen him make big plays in the preseason games under the lights. I wouldn’t sleep on Trevor to win the job, either.”
Denver also has signal callers Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch on its roster. Sanchez signed with the team in March, but has since dealt with a thumb injury. Lynch was drafted this off-season.
“Obviously those two guys are pretty good players,” Siemian said. “Paxton is a really talented guy. He hasn’t done a lot yet, but there is a reason he was a first-round pick. He’s a big, strong guy — athletic, big arm. Mark knows what he’s doing. So we’ve got a good room. It’s going to be really competitive, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Siemian, 23, will enter his second NFL season in 2016 after being selected by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 2015 draft. He made one appearance last season, recording one pass attempt.
