All of this eventually led to him being let go by the Browns last week after the team chose to go with rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer as the starter for the season opener.
On Saturday, reports surfaced that the Denver Broncos would be signing their former golden child back to the team and this time around, it will be for a lot less than he wanted well over a year ago.
In light of recent events and roster cuts, which included the Cleveland Browns cutting Osweiler ahead of the 53-man roster limit deadline, as well as the Denver Broncos waiving quarterback Kyle Sloter, rumors began surfacing that an Osweiler-Broncos reunion might be in the works. However, because of his large contract, the Browns were unable to unload Osweiler and he competed for their starting job this summer.
"When Brock made the decision he made the best decision for him".
"I don't think many people could have seen this situation taking place, but I will say I'm beyond excited that it did take place", Osweiler said.
Most remember Osweiler as the second-round draft pick in 2012 out of Arizona State University who sat behind legend Peyton Manning for the first three seasons of his career.
The Broncos milked a handful of semi-solid starts out of Osweiler in 2015 - their Super Bowl-winning campaign - but his game has looked beyond fix ever since.
The signing is pending his physical on Monday in Denver, but that shouldn't be a problem. "It won't be the entire offense that we installed from the spring, but it would be Brock's package". "We know, worst scenario, if something happens to Trev, we know we're confident in our backup quarterback now".
Parkey joined the Browns in Week 3 last season after Patrick Murray injured his knee in practice. We've seen him in this system before.
"My role is to be the backup quarterback of this team and that's where it should be", he said. Trevor's earned the right to be the starter and this is Trevor's football team. We were able to get it fixed.
