The Minnesota Vikings are set to acquire quarterback Trevor Siemian and a 2018 late-round pick from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 2019 draft pick, according to multiple reports. With the Broncos signing Case Keenum, Siemian was expendable, and he's now set to serve as the backup to Kirk Cousins in Minnesota. Siemian, a former seventh-round pick, had his ups and downs with the Broncos but was mostly bad and suffered injuries in 2017. He won't have any fantasy value holding a clipboard with the Vikes.
The Denver Broncos are expected to move on from quarterback Trevor Siemian after signing Case Keenum, and the team has started fielding calls on Siemian from interested teams, according to a source. A former seventh-round pick, Siemian has shown glimpses of production, but he was mostly bad in 2017. The Broncos could also draft a quarterback in the first round next month, and they haven't officially given up on former first-rounder Paxton Lynch, so Siemian is clearly out of the picture in Denver. We've likely seen his peak in the NFL, and he's unlikely to land a starting job elsewhere.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said that Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian is expected to be available in a trade this offseason as the team aggressively looks to overhaul their quarterback room, according to a source informed of the situation. The Broncos could have Paxton Lynch and two new signal callers on the roster next year, and they are expected to make a big push to sign Washington Redskins impending free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. Denver could also grab a top college QB in the draft with the fifth overall pick. Given how badly Siemian struggled in 2017 and the fact he's coming off surgery to his non-throwing shoulder, he'd likely fetch a late-round pick, at best. Siemian has experience as a starter the last two years, but he's more of a game manager and is unlikely to land a guaranteed starting gig if he's dealt.
