Brock Osweiler completed 23-of-42 passes for 254 yards with one touchdown and one interception while adding 24 yards on four carries Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Osweiler was sacked three times for a loss of 25 yards. He was abysmal in the first half, completing just nine-of-19 passes for 97 yards and an interception. That interception nearly went for a pick-six but Dre Kirkpatrick ended up fumbling at the one-yard line following a 100-yard return. Osweiler seemed to be favoring his shoulder late in the first half but looked more comfortable as the game went along and even led a fourth-quarter comeback, though the bid would ultimately fall short. His lone touchdown came on a 17-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas with just over five minutes remaining in the game. It was another discouraging effort for the Broncos, who are now 0-3 with Osweiler as their starter. Denver will take a six-game losing streak into next week’s game at Oakland.

Brock Osweiler (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 11.

Osweiler's shoulder isn't a concern, but his play is. He will be a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Bengals.
Nov 16 - 6:57 PM

Brock Osweiler has a minor shoulder injury but is expected to start Week 11 against the Bengals.

Osweiler didn't do much throwing on Wednesday, and it was Paxton Lynch next in line getting the majority of the reps ahead of Trevor Siemian.

The Broncos will start Brock Osweiler at quarterback again this week.

The Broncos appear to be playing out the string at this point in the year.
Nov 13 - 3:39 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 18-of-31 passes for 221 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing once for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

Osweiler got off to a solid start, opening the game by leading the Broncos on back-to-back scoring drives. Even as the Patriots started pulling away, Brock maintained a solid connection with Emmanuel Sanders, hooking up five times for 114 yards in the first half. Osweiler found Demaryius Thomas in the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown to begin the third quarter, but was mostly unsuccessful after that. Jeff Heuerman was the intended receiver on Brock’s lone interception, which came about halfway through the third quarter. The Broncos have been outscored by an astounding 92-39 margin in Osweiler’s two starts. Assuming Osweiler keeps his job for another week, he’ll get the Bengals at home next Sunday.
Nov 13 - 1:28 AM

NBC Denver reports the Broncos will stick with Brock Osweiler as their Week 10 quarterback.

Osweiler was dismal in Sunday's blowout loss to the Eagles, but second-year pro Paxton Lynch (shoulder) must not be ready yet. The more Osweiler has seen an NFL field, the worse he's gotten. There's no way he will finish the year under center in Denver. The Patriots are an attackable matchup for Week 10, but Osweiler is a better matchup for the Pats than they are for him. He'll be a last-gasp QB2.
Nov 6 - 2:49 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 19-of-38 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

He took three sacks. As much as ever, Osweiler played tentatively in the pocket and pre-determined throws in the huddle as opposed to scanning through his reads. He's a low-level backup quarterback in the NFL, at best. There have been whispers the Broncos will turn to Paxton Lynch in Week 10 against the Patriots. After Osweiler's performance on Sunday, it certainly wouldn't surprise.
Nov 5 - 4:48 PM

Coach Vance Joseph announced Brock Osweiler will be the Broncos' starting quarterback Week 9 against the Eagles.

It's a move that had to be made after Trevor Siemian once again stunk up the joint on national television Monday night in Kansas City. Siemian has thrown eight picks to just three touchdowns the past five weeks, and the Broncos have lost 4-of-5 heading into Philly. Osweiler isn't any better, but Joseph ran the risk of losing the team if he didn't shake it up. The Eagles' defense is arguably the top team defense play of the week, especially if CB Ronald Darby (ankle) is back.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Demaryius Thomas could benefit from the change. With Siemian, Thomas averaged 8.5 targets per game and he’s hit double-digits once. Across Osweiler’s eight appearances in 2015, Thomas attracted 10.5 looks per game and saw between 10-14 five times. If Ronald Darby is out, Thomas could battle Rasul Douglas (14th-most yards/cover snap), and Jalen Mills (4th-most total yards).

Broncos signed QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Browns.

He's expected to sign for the veteran's minimum, which would provide some relief to the Browns, who had been on the hook for his entire $16 million salary. Osweiler, of course, began his career in Denver and at one point looked like the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. He's a low-risk flyer for the Broncos, who needed a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) on the shelf. Osweiler is no threat to starter Trevor Siemian.
Sep 2 - 4:56 PM

9News' Mike Klis reports the Broncos are expected to have interest in free agent Brock Osweiler.

The Broncos are the first team linked to Osweiler since his Cleveland release. Osweiler had the best season of his career filling in for Peyton Manning in 2015, but has struggled outside of Denver. The Broncos need a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) expected to miss 2-4 games. Osweiler's contract contains offset language, so he figures to sign for the veteran minimum.
Sep 2 - 3:05 PM

Browns released Brock Osweiler.

Cleveland made a good show of pretending to consider Osweiler for the starting job, likely in an effort to drum up trade interest. The offers never came, however, and now they are paying him $16 million to stay at home, although the second-round pick they got back from the Texans will soften the blow. DeShone Kizer will open the season as the starter.
Sep 1 - 4:55 PM

ESPN's Pat McManamon reports the Browns have renewed efforts to trade Brock Osweiler.

DeShone Kizer is on track to start Week 1 barring an implosion in the third week of the preseason, while Osweiler is not going to play this week. Osweiler's inactivity suggests the Browns are trying to keep him healthy in order to deal him. Osweiler essentially took a shot at Browns team hierarchy, replying "I think that's a great question for our general manager" when asked what would need to happen for him to win the starting job, suggesting it would be the GM's call and not coach Hue Jackson's. "I don't know where that came from," Jackson answered when asked about Osweiler's comment.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brock Osweiler is not expected to play in the Browns' third preseason game.

ESPN's Field Yates wonders if the Browns are sitting Osweiler in hopes to trade him. It makes sense. Coach Hue Jackson named rookie DeShone Kizer the starter, and Cleveland has Cody Kessler as a capable No. 2. Osweiler has been brutal this preseason, completing 12-of-22 passes (54.5 percent) for 67 yards (3.05 YPA) and a 0:1 TD:INT ratio with massive accuracy issues. It'll be tough to find someone to take on his $16 million salary. The Browns may be comfortable outright cutting Osweiler.
Aug 23 - 10:49 AM

Browns coach Hue Jackson hopes to name a starting quarterback by Wednesday.

Jackson said he has an "idea" of who will be the starter, but he wants to "watch the tape" of Monday night's game before making a final decision. Brock Osweiler got the start again on Monday night, but he once again struggled with ball placement and had a ball tipped and intercepted at the line. DeShone Kizer led two scoring drives, but he held the ball too long and had a couple very questionable throws. With solid talent on offense, the Browns could surprise if the quarterback situation cooperates.
