You guys are pronouncing vet Cornerback wrong. We don’t need a vet qb. We need a vet CB.

"Nurrrrr....."



"...Wow that's hot...I could have him and Lynch back...again! Maybe we could sneak Kelly onto the practice squad. He's not giraffey enough for me..."

Here comes the we must have an experienced QB at #2 no matter how bad he sucks move to make us all feel better. Just keep Lynch if that's the move John, he sucks just as bad as Osweiler to fill your yearly crap move.

Calm down, Brock backed up Manning as a rookie. The only other QB was on the practice squad.

Elway just wants a vet on the roster in general, that's Case. He was adding vets in 2016 because all we had was a collection of guys without a single start. We still just rolled with Siemian and Lynch all season. In 2017 Lynch was supposed to make a leap forward, when he didn't they turned to Brock, who had some success as a starter. They were not going to start an undrafted rookie, as much as the legend of Sloter was growing.

If they can Roll with Siemian and Lynch, with neither having ever started a game. They'll roll with Case and Kelly....assuming Kelly keeps progressing.

last year broncos had the vikings 2018 back up qb to be and the dolphins 2018 back up qb to be but could not win games with them. Is a backup really going to make a difference if Case goes down?

No, if he goes down it's a lost season. Let Kelly play, evaluate him and use a high pick on a QB if he sucks, or move on with him as QB and let Keenum be backup next year.

It’s weird.


It’s like Vet = better even though most August FA vets suck worse than players who have zero exp.

That’s not true. Caleb Hanie was on the roster in 2012.

2nd Bolded Austin Davis was on the roster starting that season, but you’re right he never played.

I don't think Hanie was ever even activated. He doesn't even show up as on the roster on pro-football-reference.

He was on the roster cause I remember having a problem with it


https://www.footballdb.com/teams/nfl.../2012?sort=pos

He can be inactive each week but he was still counted in the 53 for that year.

Paxton is getting cut. Kelly isn't going to be the game day backup. Its going to be a veteran. Hold your nose and pick one.

What is Lynch cap number to be cut? Locked on Broncos claims his number is too high to cut but didn't specify it.

$2.5m cap hit to keep him on the roster, just over $4.4m to cut him.
