Will Broncos start Super Bowl title defense with Mark Sanchez under center?
Monday August 8th, 2016

The Denver Broncos released their first depth chart of the season on Monday, and in it, the team lists two starting quarterbacks.

After the retirement of Peyton Manning, and the departure of Brock Osweiler in free agency, Denver has no clear option under center. Veteran Mark Sanchez and 24-year-old Trevor Siemian are both listed as QB1s, with Rookie Paxton Lynch behind them.

Siemian, a second-year signalcaller out of Northwestern, played just one snap last season. Sanchez, meanwhile, posted an 80.7 passer rating in four games with the Eagles in 2015. He owns a career completion percentage of 56.7% with the Jets and Eagles, and has thrown for 86 touchdowns and 84 interceptions in his six years in the league.
