Broncos name Brock Osweiler starting QB vs. Eagles

Brock Osweiler will replace Trevor Siemian as the Broncos' starting quarterback when the team plays at Philadelphia on Sunday.

Kelly, aka "Mr. Irrelevant" in the 2017 NFL Draft, practiced for the first time this year for the Broncos.

Broncos rookie tight-end Jake Butt returned to the practice field; Emmanuel Sanders and Todd Davis also practiced for the Broncos. His return was prompted by Paxton Lynch's shoulder injury suffered in the preseason. The Broncos officially announced the move on the team website.

A few bleary-eyed hours studying game film early Tuesday morning wasn't enough time for Joseph to make that decision. "It's not about how he's played, it's the result that we're not getting and it's not good".

"When you watch Trevor, even last night, he made three terrible interceptions, I mean horrific decisions, with those three he threw last night", Joseph said.

He started seven games in the 2015 season when Manning was injured, going 5-2 before being benched at halftime of the regular-season finale.

Osweiler, Peyton Manning's longtime backup, was expected to take over the Broncos QB job previous year following Manning's retirement a month after Denver's Super Bowl 50 win. He was cut by Cleveland during training camp and signed to be Denver's backup ahead of its season opener in September.

Brock Osweiler is back in the saddle under center for the Broncos.

The Texans proceeded to trade Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns this past offseason, but Osweiler ended up losing out to the trio of DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan and was released by the Browns.

Siemian started 14 games during an 8-8 2016 season and opened this year with three good outings as the Broncos went 3-1 before a Week Five bye.

"In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw".

"It's my job to do what's best for the football team", said Joseph on Tuesday.
