Brock Osweiler makes sheepish return to Broncos

0:39 | NFL         Browns Release Cornerback Joe Haden

Despite his upbringing as Manning's successor, Osweiler bolted Denver - three days after Manning announced his retirement - and signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Houston Texans. He returned Monday with "no regret" about opting to join the Houston Texans in March 2016, which led to a frustrating season, a trade to the Cleveland Browns and, finally, the completion of the circle - albeit one that now has him back behind his former understudy, Trevor Siemian.

Looking back on the Broncos from his Houston perch past year, Osweiler said he was not surprised Siemian emerged as old team's No. 1 quarterback.

If Osweiler could go back 18 months and do it over again, would he have accepted the Broncos offer (which was $15.5 million a year) to stay?

The Broncos had hoped to find a backup with knowledge of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy's playbook.

Osweiler's comments during his first news conference in Houston - which included his belief that the Texans gave him the best "chance to compete" - ruffled some feathers at the time, as did his decision to skip the Broncos' trip to the White House.

Sky to Remove Fox News from Airing in Britain
The statement continued: "We have concluded that it is not in our commercial interest to continue providing Fox News in the U.K". A coalition of British lawmakers, however, has recently pressured Bradley to take another look at the issue.

A day after being cut by the Cleveland Browns, Osweiler will head back to the Broncos, who drafted the Arizona State product 57th overall in 2012.

Osweiler started seven games in his past year for Denver, earning a 5-2 record in place of injured starter Peyton Manning. Eighteen months later, we now know that Elway was definitely right about that, and Elway is now going to get the quarterback he originally wanted at a bargain. "It won't be the entire offense that we installed from the spring, but it would be Brock's package".

The Browns acquired Osweiler in the offseason but earlier this week waived him after he lost the quarterback battle.

No matter how long Osweiler's return to Denver lasts, his weekly salary of $941,000 dwarfs the $36,136 Siemian will make every week. "We know, worst scenario, if something happens to Trev, we know we're confident in our backup quarterback now". We were able to get it fixed. We'll carry him for now.
