The Broncos missed the playoffs in 2016, and having the fourth-ranked defense was not the problem. The reason for missing the postseason was mediocrity in every aspect of offense, beginning at the quarterback position.

Trevor Siemian was solid, but not great. The Broncos could use an upgrade at quarterback, and Romo’s inevitable departure from the Dallas Cowboys could mean he lands in the Mile High City.

Appearing on Schlereth and Evans on 104.3 The Fan, Siemian discussed his thoughts on the rumors of Romo coming to the Broncos:

“It doesn’t [bother me]. That’s the deal I’m in. I was a seventh-round pick. I’m not as dumb as I look, I’m going to have to fight and scratch and claw my way my whole career. I’m fine with that. Truthfully, I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Those words shouldn’t surprise anyone. Siemian’s not going to say he’s pumped about Romo possibly coming here. He’s also not going to tell everyone he hopes Romo doesn’t come here, either.

If the Broncos do land Romo, one has to assume they’ll move Siemian, though. There’s no need for three quarterbacks, and Romo could mentor the younger and man with more upside, Paxton Lynch.

This is going to be another interesting offseason for the Broncos that feels like the 2012 offseason, where the team moved on from Tim Tebow and landed Peyton Manning.
