The Broncos missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season and, as a result, for the third straight offseason, general manager John Elway will be seeking solutions to his team's problem at quarterback. Since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season, the Broncos have a win-loss record of 14-18 and have yet to find a permanent answer at the quarterback position as Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, and Paxton Lynch have all failed to live up to expectations.
This past season, the Broncos gave all three players a chance to take the reins, marking the first time since 2003 that the team started more than two quarterbacks in an individual season. As a result, Denver recorded more interceptions than touchdown passes and had the league's second-worst quarterback rating.
Both Siemian and Lynch are under contract for another season and will likely compete for the starting job with 2017 seventh-round draft pick Chad Kelly. However, it's likely the team either selects a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft or signs one in free agency. One potential free agent option is Kirk Cousins, who recorded at least 25 touchdowns and fewer than 13 interceptions in each of the past three seasons with the Washington Redskins.
