The Denver Broncos and Brock Osweiler are once again an item.
Just days after being cut by the Cleveland Browns, Osweiler re-signed with the that drafted him in 2012 but failed to retain his services in 2016.
Osweiler spent his latest season with the Houston Texans where he had an absolutely dismal year.
The Browns will still have to pay $16 million of Brock’s salary, meaning the Broncos are paying next to nothing for their former pivot.
Osweiler will serve as backup quarterback to starter Trevor Siemian for Denver this season.
Current Broncos general manager and former star quarterback John Elway discusses the acquisition:
“When Brock made that decision [to sign with Houston], he made the best decision that he thought was best for him,” Elway told reporters Saturday night. “It’s just kind of funny how these things worked out with our situation and Brock being available — funny how everything aligned. We know that Brock can win football games with us, he’s got a lot of experience and that was one glaring hole we had at that time in my mind when Paxton [Lynch] hurt the shoulder. We’re able to get it fixed.”
