The Denver Broncos are in a state of panic as it appears that a repeat of their Super Bowl win last season might be a very long shot this time. With an unimpressive Mark Sanchez, a third stringer in Trevor Siemian and the inexperienced Paxton Lynch, the former Peyton Manning squad is scrambling to create a stronger lineup. This necessity is said to have pushed the Von Miller squad to reach out to the New England Patriots for a Jimmy Garoppolo trade.
The Rob Gronkowski squad had been unconvinced with the ability of Jimmy Garoppolo to lead the team when the time comes for Tom Brady to serve his four-game suspension as his punishment for the Deflategate scandal. Hence, the New England Patriots are said to be looking into finding a trade partner for the younger quarterback whose contract ends in 2018. Will the Denver Broncos bite?
The exit of both Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler left the Denver Broncos quarterback-less in the wake of the NFL offseason following their historic Super Bowl win against the Carolina Panthers. Despite signing Philadelphia Eagles star Mark Sanchez, the Von Miller squad remains uncertain on who will lead their team come the regular season. Can Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch lead the Denver Broncos to face leaders like Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Drew Bees and Carolina Panthers?
Rumors are rife that the answer is in the negative. The Von Miller squad has been reportedly looking for ways to convince the New England Patriots to part with Jimmy Garoppolo. While the young quarterback may not be as great as Tom Brady himself, it looks like the Denver Broncos find him more promising than the three stars they currently have in their lineup. Will this happen soon?
It depends. At the moment, no official comment has been given by any of the parties concerned. Right now, both the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are focused on strengthening their rosters and looking for ways to boost their chances in winning the Super Bowl.
For the Von Miller squad, it appears that the team is concentrating on training Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch into becoming better quarterbacks. With regard how this affects the status of Mark Sanchez, the coaching staff seems to simply be giving the younger guys more reps to make up for their lack of experience in the gridiron.
"I obviously thought about it all week long," shared Gary Kubiak of the moves in the Denver Broncos roster and preps. The head coach added, "I sat down with Mark this morning before breakfast and I told him. I said, 'Mark, I'm going to play Paxton second and if things go the way I think, if Trevor plays as long as I think he's going to play, I'm not going to put you in there with four, five minutes left in the game.'"
Kubiak further noted, "Bottom line, I have a lot to go off of on Mark. He's played a lot of football. I needed to see these two other kids play again. That was a decision I made and I talked to Mark about it this morning. I explained it to him. He was great. We went from there."
