The Denver Broncos may have an All-Pro starter in QB Peyton Manning, but the team also hopes to have an eventual starting quarterback in rookie QB Brock Osweiler. The Arizona St. Sun Devils product is reportedly nearing a deal with the Broncos:
Source w/ knowledge of talks anticipates deal for Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (2nd rnd, 57th pick) "will happen within the next couple days."— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) July 23, 2012
With the Broncos Training Camp poised to begin on Thursday, the team will look to get Osweiler on the roster so he can begin digesting the playbook as soon as possible.
The 21-year-old Osweiler played three seasons with ASU and passed for over 5,000 yards. In the 2011-12 NCAA football season, he helped lead the Sun Devils to a 4-5 record in the Pac-12 and a third place finish in the South division.
