Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian: ‘I’ve got to improve’


Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian has not had a fairy-tale story as a surprise starting quarterback the last two seasons.

Siemian was selected in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Following the Broncos’ Super Bowl victory that season, and Peyton Manning’s retirement, they selected Paxton Lynch in the first round of the 2016 draft and signed Mark Sanchez that offseason.

Siemian beat out both players that year, and beat Lynch out again in 2017, for the starting job. However, he has not shown much improvement since his first season as a starter. He has dealt with shaky offensive line play, the unit has improved this season but has dealt with injuries, and a special teams’ unit that has done a poor job of helping with field position.

He is not making any excuses, and admitted that he has not played as well as he expected to play this season.

“You look around the league, you see quarterbacks take their licks. I feel like I’ve taken my fair share, no doubt,” Siemian said, via The Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala. “But it’s all on me. I’ve been reckless with the ball at times, made some bad throws. I can own up to that. I’ve got to improve, no doubt.”

In eight starts, Siemian has completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,018 yards, 11 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, including two 3 interception games in his last three starts.
