What comes next for Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian?

The Denver Broncos hit the practice field on Wednesday under newly named starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, but also welcomed another quarterback into the mix, seventh-round draft pick, Chad Kelly.

But the Broncos currently have one front-line receiver in the pattern right now (Demaryius Thomas), they have been decidedly inconsistent up front in the offensive line, and despite the fact they run the ball well, they've rarely run it into the end zone over the first seven games. Siemian had completed just 5-of-14 passes for 56 yards and two interceptions by halftime - "horrific", his coach called the throws - while compiling an 8.9 quarterback rating. The Broncos officially announced the move on the team website. "It's not about how he's played, it's the result that we're not getting and it's not good".

About 20 months ago, members of the Denver Broncos were hoisting the Lombardi trophy over their heads to celebrate a Super Bowl title, while the Eagles were preparing to start anew under recently introduced head coach Doug Pederson. The Broncos signed him to be their backup before the season started.

Osweiler flopped in Houston in 2016 and was traded to the Cleveland Browns earlier this year before being cut.

Scott McTominay took his place in the squad and is now the one finding his hard work rewarded with a Champions League start. He said: "We know it's one of the best leagues and there are good teams, and they're getting good results".

After starting the season 3-1, the Broncos have lost three straight and are looking for some momentum in order to catch the division-leading Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. It means Thomas hasn't had a touchdown catch in roughly 50 weeks, no running back has more than one rushing touchdown and even the Broncos' elite defense has forced just six turnovers, or 11 fewer than the league leaders (Buffalo and Baltimore).

Joseph said Lynch hasn't played enough football yet since returning from the injury to be ready to start.

"In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw".

"It's my job to do what's best for the football team", Joseph said.
