Siemian making history for Northwestern

No Northwestern quarterback has started an NFL season opener since 1955, when future Hall of Famer Otto Graham did so for the defending-champion Browns. Trevor Siemian is set to break the streak in Week 1 against the Panthers.

What does Mark Sanchez's future hold?

Sanchez is easily the Broncos' most experienced quarterback, but he also costs the most and won't be the starting QB. Denver could save $3.5 million against the cap by cutting him.

Tough act to follow (again) for Denver

The 2016 Broncos will become the sixth Super Bowl champion to start a different QB the following Week 1. Three of the previous teams ('71 Colts, '72 Cowboys, '01 Ravens) went on to win at least one playoff game, but the '99 Broncos fell to 6-10.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos are on the practice field right now and have released 11 players -- Brandian Ross, Manasseh Garner, Antonio Glover, Mathu Gibson, Calvin Heurtelou, Cameron Jefferson, David Moala, Durron Neal, DeVier Posey, Darnell Sankey, Frank Shannon. They're down to 79 players and have told at 75 by 2 p.m. Denver time.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

The Broncos are basically saying they want to find out quickly what they have in their young QBs, and that this beats wasting time by playing a veteran in Mark Sanchez who doesn't protect the football.

ESPN Stats and Information  

If Trevor Siemian, Jimmy Garoppolo and Dak Prescott all start Week 1, it will be the first time since 2001 that 3 QBs drafted outside the 1st round will all make their first career start in a season opener, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
