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. Sep 7 - 9:42 PM

Bears claimed QB Zac Dysert off waivers from the Broncos.

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 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.

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.

Broncos seventh-round QB Zac Dysert appears headed for the practice squad.

The Broncos will roll with only Peyton Manning and the rapidly improving Brock Osweiler on the active roster. Dysert hasn't even played in either of the last two exhibition games.

Broncos signed seventh-round QB Zac Dysert to a four-year contract.

A favorite of Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris, Dysert was a four-year starter at Miami (OH). Dysert was hurt by a lot of dropped passes and poor line play as a Redhawk, but he's cool under pressure and has a strong-enough arm. He could eventually push Brock Osweiler for No. 2 duties with the Broncos.
Mon, May 13, 2013 06:15:00 PM

Broncos selected Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert with the No. 234 overall pick.

Dysert (6-3, 231) was Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' No. 3 quarterback, behind only Geno Smith and Tyler Wilson. A four-year starter and 63.8-percent career passer, Dysert posted a 48:23 TD:INT ratio over his final two seasons. An aggressive downfield thrower who stands firm in the pocket, Dysert's development was stunted as a senior when the Redhawks installed a shotgun-spread offense to compensate for poor line play. He appeared far more comfortable as a junior, playing under center. Dysert has enough arm strength to make vertical throws, but his short-to-intermediate placement can be puzzlingly scattershot. He could eventually push Brock Osweiler for No. 2 duties in Denver.

Although this year's quarterback class lacks a surefire franchise QB, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell believes it is the deepest at quarterback in recent years.

The class lacks an Andrew Luck or RG3, but many prospects have starter tools with one or two flaws that may or may not prevent them from becoming franchise QBs. "Believe it or not," said Caldwell, "the quarterback group is better top to bottom than it has been in years past." Added Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch, "There are good quarterbacks out there. Take away last year because of the amount of guys that ended up starting and it’s going to be a quarterback class like most."

After studying this year's draft-eligible signal callers, NFL Films' Greg Cosell mentioned Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert as one of the quarterbacks he finds very "intriguing" on game tape.

Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris is also a fan of Dysert. "He's a better arm talent than Matt Barkley," Cosell said of Dysert. "Now he's a little scattershot, and that's a problem -- all these quarterbacks have flaws. Now he ran a spread offense, so you don't see a lot of downfield throws. But if you look hard enough, you watch a lot of games -- which I have -- you do see some downfield throws. He has enough arm to make those throws."

Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert will not work out at the Combine after suffering a "slight tear" to his right hamstring.

Dysert suffered the injury on Monday. It's a tough blow for a late-round prospect whose athleticism is part of his appeal. Dysert reportedly plans to throw at the RedHawks' Pro Day on March 21. He'll need to impress after an underwhelming Senior Bowl week.
