Brock Osweiler Signs Back with the Denver Broncos

Assuming you didn't donate them to a local thrift store, you might want to break out those Brock Osweiler jerseys.

For now, Osweiler is the No. 2 QB in Denver. The Osweiler situation has been complicated, and most fans still remember his exit from the Mile High City.

The Broncos originally drafted Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Osweiler was instrumental in Denver's Super Bowl-winning 2016 season, starting seven games and throwing for almost 2000 yards and seven touchdowns in the process. He played well until the Broncos' final game of the regular season, where he was benched in favor of the aging Manning.

Houston had made a decision to move on from Osweiler after just a single year, despite gifting him a four-year, $72 million deal the previous offseason - a deal with $37 million of guaranteed money.

Osweiler took way more money to head to Houston and after being traded one year later to Cleveland and being released by the Browns this week, many didn't see the Broncos as his landing spot.

The former Arizona State quarterback threw for 2,957 yards, 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions with Houston last season after signing a four-year, $72 million contract.

Osweiler is signing a one-year, $775,000 deal to return to Denver to be a backup to Trevor Siemian, according to a report from Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The team is set to sign him once his release from the Cleveland Browns becomes official. Stay tuned; this drama is sure to heat up as the start of the 2017 season draws closer.
