We’ve reported — and we stand by those reports despite denials from the man at the center of the action — that Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn has received roughly half the reps with the first-team offense in practice this week. It previously wasn’t known why Quinn received the extra reps.
Now, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Broncos have installed specific packages for Quinn premised on second-and-long and third-and-long situations.
Whether and to what extent Quinn actually plays remains unknown. But despite anything said by Quinn or reported elsewhere, the Broncos are getting Quinn ready for something.
In two seasons with the Broncos, Quinn has not yet appeared in a regular-season game. He last played in 2009, when he started nine times for the Browns.
Quinn will be a free agent in March. Thus, he could help himself tremendously if he plays — and if he plays well.
