Broncos quarterback competition will warm up at passing camp

It’s become customary for quarterbacks to arrange passing camps with their receivers before training camp starts, the kind of thing that’s usually set up by the starter or some trusted veteran.

But in the absence of either in Denver, the camp may help decide the starter, as they’re waiting to see whether Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch ends up with the job.

According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, both quarterbacks will join their receivers, tight ends, and running backs in California for a chance to stay polished.

Mark Sanchez hosted the trip last year, reminiscent of his Jets West days, and Peyton Manning used to take them to Duke to work at former coach David Cutcliffe’s place.

But now, there’s a competition between the young incumbent Siemian and last year’s first-round pick Lynch, and coach Vance Joseph has been in no hurry to declare, saying OTAs and minicamp were simply about learning new coordinator Mike McCoy’s system.

“The football message was the things that were learned, as far as the scheme on both sides of the ball, let’s not lose that,” Joseph said. “Let’s come back and start from this point, not go backward.”

From that standpoint, the passing camp will be a way for the two quarterbacks to stay polished heading into camp, where the true competition will begin.

  1. “QB competition”, LOL!

    Last place for the Donko’s this year and probably many more years.

  2. In before the Patriots fans who can’t get over the fact that there is one team in the NFL that owns them and it’s the Broncos. I love how it seems like every time we beat you, which is often, for some reason you always play your “3rd stringers”. Every team in the NFL deals with injuries and backups playing. It isn’t an excuse. Keep it coming! Love it 🙂

  3. As a Broncos fan, I am hoping that Lynch really stands out as the clear-cut starter. If it’s close, they need to stick with Siemian.

  4. Once Chad Kelly is able to throw, wouldn’t be surprised to see him take the lead of the three. Kid can play…

  5. Not sure what they are going to do with these scrubs this year.

    The 2018 starting QB is not on the roster.

  6. As a Broncos fan, I am hoping that Lynch really stands out as the clear-cut starter. If it’s close, they need to stick with Siemian.

    Hoping that Lynch is the starter. Completely disagree with your conclusion. If it is close you go with the 1st rounder with more potential and a higher ceiling. If Siemian wants to keep the job it can’t be close he has to be the clear cut leader.

    What I Love is the fact that Denver has ONLY been to 2 Super Bowls, winning only one, being HUMILIATED, in the other one, during the time Denver has” owned the Pats”.
    Funny how New England in that time span has been to SEVEN and won FIVE!!!
    I also love when Tom beat Seattle, the same team Denver lost to 43-8. Unlike Denver, New England DOES NOT QUIT!! Remember Super Bowl 51?? Down 28-3 ???
    Not much to brag about “owning the Pats”, I as most fans will take 5 Super Bowl wins to “owning a team”!!

  8. New England sucked for many decades before you started winning Super Bowls. The Broncos have been consistently great. In fact so great, we have the highest winning percentage of all time out of all NFL teams.

  9. Tom Brady has a losing record against one team. The Broncos. They haven’t owned him, but they have been his only resistance.

  10. ^^^^^How is the WB situation a ‘mess’? That is just uneducated BS coming from idiots that have no idea what they are talking about. First of all, T Siem was a 7th round pick and contending to start is a TRIBUTE to Elway. How how many QB’s has your GM found in the 7th rd? Probably none. Drafting Brock in the 2nd rd proved to be a good move, as he went 5-2 as a starter and helped the Broncos secure home field and the No 1 seed in the playoffs in ’15. Also love how the same idiots think Paxton can’t play-truth is they are PRAYING he can’t, because if he can, the Broncos will own the AFC West. The Broncos have the champions pedigree, the Broncos still have an elite defense, the Broncos still have a dominant home field advantage, the rest of the Division can’t even win a playoff game. What happened to the Raiders last season when Carr went down? They tanked. The Broncos won a SB based on their backup QB play…also, the Raiders defense completely sucks, but they are getting a pass because all the pundits can see is offense. But this season, they won’t have a last place schedule to get fat on. CAN’T WAIT!!!

  11. They have to start Lynch. The Broncos know what they have with Siemian and can always put him back in if Lynch flames out.

  12. Marcus Peters needs to be very careful what he wishes for, he may get more than his skinny ass can handle. Yes, the chiefs have beaten the Raiders the last 2 years, but its a NEW year. wow, another Fred Smoot.

  13. Raider fan, you don’t have a single player in your secondary that could start for Denver or KC, and one player in your front seven in Mack. Your defense is bottom tier, end of story

    How old are you 10? Denver’s only been to 2 super bowls??? Try 8. Research your facts before posting KID

  15. How old are you 10? Denver’s only been to 2 super bowls??? Try 8. Research your facts before posting KID”
