Is this already a sign that Mark Sanchez will go into the Denver Broncos season not as the starter? On Friday, during practice, Sanchez threw a “bad” interception before getting benched.

Sanchez was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles for a conditional draft pick. He was considered to be favorite to win the job; however, head coach Gary Kubiak has stated that the job is an open competition.

He scrambled to the left, threw off target and was picked off by Chris Harris. He was supposedly throwing the pass toEmmanuel Sanders.

The veteran signal-caller was then yanked by Kubiak, then was replaced by Trevor Siemian, who closed out practice with the first-team.

While Kubiak says that nothing should be read into it, everybody will definitely read into it. The Broncos do not have a clear-cut favorite — and first-round pick Paxton Lynch is not ready yet.

Lynch could be ready by the end of the season if they want to take that gamble. With the Eagles last season, Sanchez was 0-2 and the team was blown out in each contest.

“We’re trying to go up there every night looking at an equal amount with each kid,” Kubiak said. “That’ll probably stay consistent here for a couple of weeks.”
