With Brock Osweiler officially a Houston Texan, the Broncos QB situation is extremely murky. Many media reports had Robert Griffin III pegged to land in Denver, but alas, Mark Sanchez was traded to the Broncos.
Sanchez is not really regarded as an NFL starter anymore, but that’s exactly what he’s eyeing in Denver. In fact, John Elways is encouraging him to believe that he’s the starter. Not sure who he’s competing against at this point.
“Let’s go, let’s compete,” Sanchez said Monday at his introductory press conference at Broncos headquarters.
But for Sanchez to win that job – no matter who his competition winds up being – he’ll need to prove he can be an effective game manager like he was early in his career with the New York Jets, when led the team to a pair of AFC title games, and not the turnover-prone player he was in his final seasons in New York and during his time as a backup in Philadelphia.
