Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler has impressed in OTA's


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Broncos quaterback Brock Osweiler doesn't get a lot of reps. It's not his fault, he just happens to back up legendary passer Peyton Manning.

Osweiler has gotten a chance to participate more often this offseason because the Broncos are giving their veterans more off days, and he has been impressive.

"He has a lot more command," said running back C.J. Anderson. "He wants to go out there and play. He's been confident and comfortable, and he knows what he can do. He trusts his ability."

Osweiler, who has been Manning's backup for three seasons now, has continued to mature as an NFL quarterback despite only playing in 13 career games.

"I've always been impressed with Brock and his composure and how he commands the huddle," tight end Virgil Green said. "The more and more you play in the league, the more confident you get and the more composure you have out there."


Broncos' Peyton Manning to get more days off this year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sat out practice on Monday, and he can expect it to happen more often than in the past.

New coach Gary Kubiak wants to manage Manning's practice snaps this year. The reasons are two-fold:  It will help keep the 39-year-old Manning fresh, and it will also give the coaching staff a good look at backup Brock Osweiler.

Kubiak said he was aware that Manning was "not a big fan" of sitting out practice, per the AP. "I just think it's important. I talked to him about it. You want guys that want to practice. They all want to practice. But you try to convince them, 'Hey, I want you there for the long haul and as healthy as you can be and as strong as you can be, and I also want to find out about these guys."


Kubiak: Time for Broncos' backup Brock Osweiler to step up


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler hasn't had much playing time, as Peyton Manning's backup, but coach Gary Kubiak wants to see progress from him.

"I think it's time for Brock to take a big step as a player," Kubiak said, per NFL.com. "A lot of times in this league, the young quarterbacks don't get the opportunity to be behind a player of Peyton's status and learn before they get the opportunity in this league ... I think Brock needs to take advantage of this. But he's going to be very competitive. I'm very impressed with his skills. I'm very impressed with how hard he works in the classroom. I know he's got all of the ability."


Broncos plan to use Brock Osweiler more often in 2015


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said that the team plans to use quarterback Brock Osweiler to spell Peyton Manning more often this season, according to NFL.com.

Kubiak told reporters at the NFL meetings Tuesday that he has spoken with Manning about decreasing his reps, allowing him to rest up and stay fresh heading into the postseason.

"I want to do what's best for him," Kubiak explained, via The Denver Post. "I went through the same process with John (Elway) late in his career, and it was a battle for me and Mike (Shanahan) to do some things with him."

Osweiler, 24, has never started a game for the Broncos after being drafted in 2012. Though he is not a threat to start over Manning, he will see more time on the practice field, in meetings and during games in which the team has a big lead.


WR Emmanuel Sanders says Peyton Manning will return to Broncos


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.


Report: Broncos prepared to go with Osweiler if Manning retires


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) The Broncos reportedly have a plan in place if star quarterback Peyton Manning decides to hang up his cleats. Current backup quarterback Brock Osweiler would take over as the starter, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

"I can tell you from sources inside the Broncos organization, this is a guy they feel very good about," Rapoport said. "The reviews internally on Brock Osweiler are high, so if Peyton Manning does not come back, they do feel confident that they have a quarterback who can step in and have some level of success in there after Peyton Manning, whenever he does decide to retire."

The Broncos drafted Osweiler in the 2012 draft and he has been used sparringly since then, throwing for 159 yards and one touchdown in 13 appearances for Denver.


Broncos pleased with Brock Osweiler's development


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/6/2014) The Broncos fully expect Peyton Manning to be under center in 2014, but they were reassured by what they saw from 23-year-old backup Brock Osweiler. Getting his most extended playing time in the regular-season finale at Oakland, the second-year pro completed 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards.

"I was pleased to see Brock's performances in the preseason get better in each game, and then he played a pretty good second half against Oakland in the last regular season game, and I feel like he's making progress," offensive coordinator Greg Knapp told the team's website.

Coach John Fox said Osweiler is "way further ahead this year than he was a year ago. I think he’s got a comfort level. Of course, the time he spends with Peyton, I think, is a great benefit. But he’s smart, he’s got all the athletic tools and now it’s just a matter of getting opportunities to play the game."


Brock Osweiler steps in for Peyton Manning in second half


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler took over for Peyton Manning in the second half of Sunday's regular season finale against the Raiders in Week 17. With the game well in hand, Osweiler completed 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards in a 34-14 victory.

The Broncos will have a first-round bye before the hosting their first playoff game.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) The Broncos had four players listed on the injury report who were able to take the field in Thursday's season opener against the Ravens in Week 1: defensive end Robert Ayers (Achilles), tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder), quarterback Brock Osweiler (shoulder) and wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) were all able to overcome their injuries, after participating in practice throughout the week.

Guard Chris Kuper is doubtful with an ankle injury. Offensive tackle Ryan Clady is probable with a shoulder injury. Backup quarterback Brock Osweiler (shoulder) and defensive end Robert Ayers (Achilles) are also probable.


Broncos high on Osweiler


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/15/2013) The Denver Post reports that Broncos coach John Fox and team executive John Elway said Monday they were impressed with rookie quarterback Brock Osweiler during the season even though he attempted only four passes as the seldom-used backup to Peyton Manning. Fox and Elway were asked if they had seen enough of Osweiler on the practice field to consider him the Broncos' quarterback of the future. "I believe so," Fox said. "Brock didn't get as many game situations. I think that's a positive thing (that he wasn't needed). What he did, I thought he did well. You get evaluated by what you do (on game days). But I like his temperament. I feel real positive about Brock Osweiler. The Broncos selected Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 draft, the 57th overall pick. This season in mop-up duty, Osweiler completed 2 of 4 passes for 12 yards, usually handing off the ball to run out the clock at the end of victories. "Brock made the progress that we thought he would," Elway said. "I've gotten to know what he is as a guy and how he is on the practice field. He fits in real well in this building."He does really well with his teammates and in working with Peyton. I'm thrilled with his progress so far."
