The Denver Broncos are holding an open competition at the quarterback position this offseason, but it sounds like Trevor Siemian is the early favorite to win the job once again.

Although the Broncos traded up in the first round last year to draft former Memphis star Paxton Lynch, Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver recently told Peter King of The MMQB that he believes Siemian will beat out Lynch.

Ideally, you would have to think the Broncos want Lynch to seize the job at some point. They didn’t draft him in the first round for him to be a backup, though they’re also not going to rush the 23-year-old into action — no matter what one of his teammates recently said about him.
