Jun 2 - 3:07 PM

Cardinals re-signed QB Zac Dysert to a one-year contract.

Dolphins signed QB Zac Dysert to a reserve/future contract.

Texans signed QB Zac Dysert to the practice squad.

Dysert was a draftnik favorite in the weak 2013 quarterback class, but has never taken a regular-season snap after being a sixth-round pick. He spent time in both Denver and Chicago this offseason, but was beaten out by both Trevor Siemian and David Fales, respectively. Dysert is Houston's de facto No. 3 QB.

Bears waived QB Zac Dysert.

Dysert was claimed off waivers from the Broncos four days ago. David Fales appears to have a job if the Bears keep three quarterbacks.

Bears claimed QB Zac Dysert off waivers from the Broncos.

Dysert played for coach John Fox and OC Adam Gase in Denver, but spent 2014 on the practice squad. He's insurance against backup Jimmy Clausen's concussion.

Broncos waived QB Zac Dysert.

Dysert was beaten out by rookie Trevor Siemian. Denver also waived/released ILB Reggie Walker, CB Tevrin Brandon, G Andre Davis, TE Joe Don Duncan, P Spencer Lanning, S Ross Madison, TE Jake Murphy, RB Jeremy Stewart and OLB Chase Vaughn. After placing rookie TE Jeff Heuerman on injured reserve, Denver needs to make four more roster moves ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

Broncos signed QB Zac Dysert to a reserve/future contract.

Dysert, 24, spent the entire season on Denver's practice squad. He'll enter the offseason as the No. 3 quarterback behind Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler.
Wed, Jan 21, 2015 07:13:00 PM

Broncos signed QB Zac Dysert to the practice squad.

Somewhat surprisingly, Dysert cleared waivers following his Saturday release. He spent 2013 on the active roster. Dysert completed 12-of-18 passes for 106 yards (5.8 YPA) and a touchdown this preseason. He'll develop on the practice squad as Brock Osweiler backs up Peyton Manning.

Broncos waived QB Zac Dysert.

The Broncos are only going to roll with Brock Osweiler behind Peyton Manning for now. Dysert went 12-of-19 for 106 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in two preseason appearances. He's a strong candidate for Denver's practice squad, but could draw multiple claims.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 01:07:00 PM

Broncos No. 3 QB Zac Dysert finished Saturday night's intrasquad scrimmage 7-of-8 passing for 112 yards.

His lone misfire was a throwaway. A seventh-round pick in the 2013 draft and draftnik favorite coming out of Miami (OH), Dysert has "made tremendous strides since last year," according to Peyton Manning. If Manning retires following this season, Dysert could push Brock Osweiler to be Denver's 2015 starter.

Zac Dysert has made the Broncos as their No. 3 quarterback.

Ideally, the Broncos would have tried to slide Dysert onto their practice squad. But that would have exposed the seventh-round rookie to waivers. "We thought it was in our best interests to protect him," said John Elway. Denver will be one of the few teams to carry three quarterbacks on the active roster Week 1.
