Siemian earned the job over 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch.

Last season, Siemian won the starting job over Mark Sanchez. He went on to start 14 games for Denver, completing 59.5 percent of his passes for 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The Broncos went 8-6 in games Siemian started in 2016. They started the season 4-0 but lost four consecutive games Siemian started from Week 12 through Week 16. Lynch led the Broncos to a win in Week 13 when he started over an injured Siemian.
