The quarterback situation for the Denver Broncos since the Super Bowl has been a crazy one. First, Peyton Manning retires then their quarterback of the future Brock Osweiler decides to sign with the Houston Texans in free agency. The Broncos signed Mark Sanchez, drafted Paxton Lynch and still have Trevor Siemian.
Wide receiver DeMaryius Thomas told Nicki Jhabvali of the Denver Post that he can not tell who is leading the quarterback competition because they are all so new.
All of them can make every throw, but it’s a little different going with somebody new. I’ve been with Peyton for the last four years, and of course I had [Osweiler] as well. But it’s like my first time going with any of them of them.
There will no doubt be a learning curve to whoever earns the starting job. Thomas says the hard part is not knowing who is going to be throwing him the ball.
It’s going to be hard to say who I go with because don’t know who the guy is right now. I did something with Mark Sanchez in Orange County. That kind of helped. But Trevor was there as well. It’s kind of tought right now to kind of go out and see who I’ll have more reps with. It’s easy when you can go out every day and say ‘You want to throw 10 balls here?’ But it’s different when you got someone in front of him.
Thomas made it clear that they are not worried adding, “We still got time. These guys are going to be good.”
