Denver Broncos officially sign QB Brock Osweiler to 1-year deal

Kalispell native and former Kalispell Flathead Braves quarterback Brock Osweiler is headed back to the place where his professional career began, as he and the Denver Broncos agreed to terms on a one-year contract on Saturday.

Osweiler spent four seasons in Denver before signing with the Houston Texans, where he played one season before being shipped to Cleveland. I have nothing but love and appreciation for this organization, for John Elway, for Joe Ellis, for the Bowlen family, just for this community itself.

Then came Osweiler's signing, an improbable return, given his somewhat bumpy departure in free agency 18 months ago.

Osweiler's comments during his first news conference in Houston - which included his belief that the Texans gave him the best "chance to compete" - ruffled some feathers at the time, as did his decision to skip the Broncos' trip to the White House.

Two months after signing the deal with Houston, Osweiler had some choice words of his own for the Broncos. His return to Denver will be a bit unusual because, as USA Today's Lindsay Jones writes, he "distanced himself from Broncos teammates in the aftermath of Super Bowl 50" and he skipped the Broncos trip to the White House as well as the team's Super Bowl ring ceremony, a move that "irked some of Osweiler's former teammates".

"It goes back to the very first preseason game of 2015 when we played in Seattle, " Osweiler said. "It won't be the entire offense that we installed from the spring, but it would be Brock's package". Now, the Browns are paying Osweiler more than $15 million this season, while the Broncos are paying him less than a million. With Manning's skills in decline and nursing a foot injury, Osweiler started seven games, going 5-2. "However, in saying that, this is Trevor Siemian's team, and right now, my job is to be backup of this football team and do it to the best of my ability". "So, we were able to get it fixed". I think that those guys are busts.

The embattled 26-year-old quarterback passed his physical on Monday morning and will be on the practice field with the rest of the team on Monday afternoon.
