The Facts: HC Gary Kubiak continues to insist all three QB have a shot at the starting gig, but Sanchez will get the first snaps. Kubiak said Wednesday that Sanchez will start with the first-team unit when training camp opens on Thursday, but noted that the rotation isn't written in stone. Kubiak added that reps will remain equal between Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch. "The bottom line is we're gonna give them equal reps," Kubiak said. "It's an open competition."
Diehards Line: Kubiak continued: "We've laid out our plan of how we're gonna rep them and those types of things, so that we're getting an equal look at all of them. Tomorrow we line up. Mark's gonna go first, Trevor is gonna go second, Paxton is gonna go third. That will change on a day-to-day basis and how we do things. We just want to give them all an equal opportunity. The Broncos' coach noted that he had no timetable in selecting a starting quarterback. Kubiak said Sanchez and Siemian will likely split more first-team reps to start camp, but the Broncos want to ensure Lynch remains on a quick developmental path. As NFL.com suggested, there appears to be a definitive ceiling on Sanchez, but he remains the only QB on the roster with NFL experience. The team has insisted that Siemian, a seventh-round pick, will get a shot at the gig. Lynch brings the biggest upside and could play sooner rather than later if he grasps the offense quickly in training camp and preseason games. And we'll continue to watch for more.
