Just Like That, Brock Osweiler Is Back With The Broncos

It looks like the Denver Broncos and Brock Osweiler are going to let bygones be bygones. "Today has been incredible".

The only reason why the Broncos brought him back was because Lynch is hurt and the Broncos need a temporary backup for starter Trevor Siemian, who was the No. 3 quarterback in Denver behind Manning and Osweiler in its Super Bowl-winning season in 2015. In the subsequent offseason, Osweiler declined talks with the Broncos, turning down a contract extension to remain with the team, and instead signed a 4-year, $72 million contract with the Houston Texans. The Broncos offered the structure Osweiler was familiar with, along with a pretty hefty contract, but the Texans offered more money.

Osweiler also spoke about his decision to leave for the Houston Texans, calling it a business move and pointing out that he had never had anything bad to say publicly about the Broncos organization.

"I think with the opportunity we had to get Brock back, we're excited about that opportunity to have that experience there with Brock", said John Elway, the Broncos' president of football operations/general manager.

But time appears to have healed those wounds. That was the first thing I said to him when we talked yesterday. Osweiler was equally eager to return.


"I wasn't even anxious about that", Osweiler said.

The deal is pending an Osweiler physical on Monday. "I know we thought a lot of Brock".

Osweiler was cut by the Cleveland Browns on Friday but his former team in Denver swooped up the Kalispell product.

The Broncos agreed a one-year deal with Osweiler, contingent on him passing a medical on Monday. With Browns coach Hue Jackson opting to stay silent, most felt Osweiler had a real shot to start for Cleveland. When the Broncos' offense sputtered in their final game, Manning replaced Osweiler and led Denver to a 27-20 comeback win against San Diego that secured the AFC's top seed. Osweiler played for McCoy in 2012, when McCoy was in the a year ago of his previous stint with the team.

Was Joseph anxious that Osweiler wouldn't look tall?
