It was just over a year ago when some Broncos thought Adam Weber was better than Tim Tebow.
Now, Weber could be in line to be Peyton Manning’s backup.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post wrote that Weber’s currently working as the No. 2 quarterback in camp, ahead of free agent pickup Caleb Hanie or second-round pick Brock Osweiler.
Now, this might be as simple as Weber knows better what offensive coordinator Mike McCoy’s talking about, having been around longer.
But it also points to the perilous state of affairs in Denver, especially if Manning has any kind of setback.
Then again, it is John Fox, who never cared much for playing young quarterbacks. Perhaps Brian St. Pierre should keep his phone on.
