According to reports, the Denver Broncos tried to trade for Case Keenum. However, the Los Angeles Rams rejected the idea, as Keenum is expected to start for them.

This was talked about before the team’s 53-man roster had to be finalized last Saturday, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. It’s not clear what the Rams were asking in return; however, it would have been significant because Keenum was named the starter before the roster cut-down day.

Trevor Siemian will start for the Denver Broncos tonight in a Super Bowl 50 rematch against the Carolina Panthers. It’s the first-time that a Super Bowl champion will start a quarterback — whose never thrown a pass — in their season opener.


It’s not clear it if was over the phone or in person. The Broncos hosted the Rams on August 27th at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in the third preseason game.

While Siemian will start, he wasn’t expected to be the replace to Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler this season. Mark Sanchez — who was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles in an off-season trade — was expected to be the starter.

The Broncos also failed to get San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colon Kaepernick in a trade. That made Siemian and Sanchez battling it out for the starting role.

After Siemian won the job, Sanchez was released by the team — but already had a deal with the Dallas Cowboys in place, then signed that contract when he was officially released. They also signed Austin Davis as a veteran back-up.

Siemian — who the Broncos love — will likely hold the spot until first-round pick Paxton Lynch is officially ready to go. That may come later this season.
