Brock Osweiler passes physical, returns to Denver Broncos

Brock Osweiler is no longer on the unemployment line as he signed with his old team in the Denver Broncos.

Eventually, he expects to grow more comfortable in the offense, but he knows the situation: He's with the team because Paxton Lynch is recovering from a sprained right shoulder. "It's just amusing how these things worked out and with our situation and Brock being available, it's just amusing how everything aligned", said Broncos General Manager, John Elway. After playing a key role for the Broncos in their run to winning Super Bowl 50 (he went 5-2 as a starter while filling in for Peyton Manning), Osweiler shocked the world and signed a free-agent deal with the Houston Texans.

Osweiler has a grasp on some tenets of the scheme from the first three years of his previous stint with the Broncos - including the 2012 season under Mike McCoy, who was concluding his first term as Denver's offensive coordinator. The minimum for a sixth-year pro is $775,000. Manning then took every snap in the playoffs. We feel that way. I have nothing but love and appreciation for this organization, for John Elway, for Joe Ellis, for the Bowlen family, just for this community itself. He's been through a lot. I've had some great experiences in the past 18 months and some not-so-great experiences that I've learned from. He's going to need a little football rehab, we know that.

Elway said there are no hard feelings from their previous split.

"And so it's just kind of amusing how these things worked out with our situation and Brock being available. My wife and I, we miss Colorado every single day". "So, we were able to get it fixed". For instance, he said he would put together "a team with players who want to be" here and cornerback Aqib Talib told USA Today after a victory over Houston last fall, that losing Osweiler was a "win-win", because the Broncos saved money and found a "better quarterback" in Trevor Siemian. He had to win the job again this summer after Vance Joseph replaced Gary Kubiak as head coach.
