Trevor Siemian performed well in his 14 starts this season. Behind a permeable hostile line, the second-year quarterback beat the Peyton Manning-Brock Osweiler twosome of 2015. Siemian ordered an 18-10 TD-INT proportion and an 84.6 passer rating, both far surpassing the 2015 mix. The offense’s battles are not to be faulted for the quarterback.

Elway exchanged up in the first round of the 2016 draft to choose Paxton Lynch. The new kid on the block was flimsy in three appearances, however showed a major arm and great physicality. A full offseason of flavoring ought to permit him to contend with Siemian for the beginning gig.

Elway didn’t preclude acquiring a veteran, however it’s not high on his need list. Elway expressed, “Never say never. At this moment we’re going ahead, yet we are continually taking a gander at everything.” Elway said the quarterbacks will be talked about when he is meeting drilling competitors, however having a hostile foundation or a history working with youthful flag guests won’t be a prerequisite for the following mentor.

The Broncos plan to take a gander at “three or four” applicants, per Elway. The EVP said he might want to hold a few individuals from Kubiak’s staff, however none will be considered for the head training gig. The eventual fate of cautious facilitator Wade Philips, whose agreement lapses soon, will be left to the new mentor, Elway said.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Dolphins protective facilitator Vance Joseph and Falcons organizer Kyle Shanahan, child of ex-Denver mentor Mike Shanahan, are early contender to supplant Kubiak.

Elway said his concentration this offseason is consistently enhancing the guard, yet focused on that the offense expected to convey its half of the heap. “We must improve upsettingly, and we need to contend better repulsively,” he said. Enhancing the hostile line and running diversion are evident beginning stages to reinforce his young quarterbacks.
