Elway: Broncos quarterback position is ‘under evaluation’

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos did not make a change at the quarterback position on Tuesday with general manager John Elway saying the position is “under evaluation.”

Although no decision was announced, Broncos coach Vance Joseph did nothing to quiet the suspicion that the team is thinking about a change.

Many are speculating the team will name a new starting quarterback after Trevor Siemian threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.

“I think it’s fair to say that right now, everything is being discussed,” Joseph said. “When you watch Trevor, he made three horrific decisions, but he had 20 other plays that were good.

“In the end, it’s about results. It’s not about how he’s played. It’s the end result that we’re not getting.”

Elway told the Broncos’ radio station that the position is “under evaluation right now” and that a “decision will be made in the upcoming days.”

The Broncos appear to be considering only Siemian and Brock Osweiler, with Joseph saying Paxton Lynch will “not be in the mix” for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Joseph also added there is no possibility of bringing in a quarterback from the outside or before the 2 p.m. MDT trade deadline.

“When you make a move like that, it takes time, it takes thought because you want to be right,” Joseph said.

Joseph added he plans to meet with the team before it’s announced. Broncos players return to team headquarters on Wednesday.
