Takeaway No. 1: Joseph and McCoy are committed to young quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

When fielding questions, Joseph was asked if he was committed to quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, to which he responded;

“Absolutely, I am. They’re both smart guys. Obviously different skill sets, but I’m committed to both those kids. They’re good football players and we’ve got to build around those guys. That’s going to help those guys play better.”

Joseph went on to say that he envisioned the two young quarterbacks battling it out for the starting job come training camp, a view that was shared by incoming offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

“They’re two talented players and we’re going to play the best guy,” McCoy explained during his time in front of the media.

While Siemian may have beaten out both Lynch and veteran quarterback Mark Sanchez during training camp last season, that doesn’t mean that will be the case this time around.

It appears that both McCoy and Joseph aren’t married to idea of Siemian starting, meaning the Broncos may have their third different starting quarterback in three years come Week 1 of the 2017 season.

When asked about current Cowboys QB Tony Romo, Joseph quickly shut down the conversation, saying he was under contract with another team.

For now, the plan moving forward is to give both Lynch and Siemian every opportunity possible to prove to the new coaching staff that they are most deserving to start at quarterback.
