Denver Broncos Bring Back Brock

The Denver Broncos brought back one of their former quarterbacks, with free agent Brock Osweiler rejoining on a one-year deal reportedly worth the veterans' minimum of $775,000.

Osweiler was beaten out by rookie DeShone Kizer, who will be the 27th starting quarterback for Cleveland since 1999 when the team opens against Pittsburgh on September 10.

Osweiler, who played for the Broncos two seasons ago, was resigned by Denver nearly immediately following getting cut by the Cleveland Browns. Osweiler signed a one-year deal on Saturday to backup Trevor Siemian.

"I'm a better quarterback and I know that for a fact, because I've never been coached so hard on my fundamentals until I got (to Cleveland)", he said. When the Broncos' offense sputtered in their final game, Manning replaced Osweiler and led Denver to a 27-20 comeback win against San Diego that secured the AFC's top seed.

Nor has Cody Kessler, the second-year quarterback that many believed would be the opening-day starter before the team opted to go with Kizer, behind whom they seem to be throwing their full support for the long haul. "I know we thought a lot of Brock". With Manning's skills in decline and nursing a foot injury, Osweiler started seven games, going 5-2.

Osweiler started seven games in his past year for Denver, earning a 5-2 record in place of injured starter Peyton Manning.

The Browns acquired Osweiler in the offseason but earlier this week waived him after he lost the quarterback battle. Osweiler said Monday that not only was he ecstatic to be back with the Broncos, but that he fully understands his role this time around. "So, we were able to get it fixed". "We'll welcome him with open arms and give him some love".
