The Denver Broncos are struggling at the quarterback position as far as having a day one starter as compared to most teams. The position battle between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch ended with Siemian taking the starting job. Not only did Lynch lose out on the starting job, he is also dealing with a shoulder injury.

Lynch saw limited playing time last season and showed promise, but not enough in the offseason to become the Broncos quarterback. So, is it time for the Broncos to consider to move on from Lynch?

Lynch, who was a first round draft pick in 2016 has shown signs of promise and potential but has failed to impress the team enough to lead them onto the field as the starter.

It is his second year, but typically teams first round draft picks are starters. Since Lynch can’t win the starting job, did the Broncos make the wrong choice to use a first round pick on him in 2016? Even though it’s only his second year in the league, he should be able to win the job at some point.

If Siemian has the same season he did last year, Lynch will most likely be watching the games from the sidelines. Even during the season, he will need to show the Broncos coaching staff that they need him on the roster, whether it’s as a starter or backup. If the Broncos do decide to look to move on with out Lynch, it will be interesting to see where he could go.
