"It's hard to really describe it in words, but being back here today, practicing as a Bronco and being here at [UTHealth Training Center], it's probably a top five, if not top three day of my life". "Today has been incredible".
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.
A big reason why Osweiler ended up in Houston is because the Broncos didn't want to match the Texans' offer because they thought Houston was overpaying. After Osweiler didn't light it up in two preseason games, the Browns released him. "It's just amusing how these things worked out and with our situation and Brock being available, it's just amusing how everything aligned", said Broncos General Manager, John Elway.
But time appears to have healed those wounds.
"We'll cross that bridge when we get there", Elway said. Osweiler was equally eager to return. Regardless of the unusual trip it has been, Osweiler said he has no regrets about leaving Denver. ". I would say I'm ecstatic to be back here. Our old neighbors have reached out", Osweiler said Monday, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post. And you learn real quick how nice that stove is when it's not hot.
"When we look at it, he knows our system".
Osweiler will be the primary backup in Denver while Paxton Lynch recovers from a shoulder injury.
Osweiler is not only a Bronco again, he has returned to his more familiar role as backup.
Was Joseph anxious that Osweiler wouldn't look tall? ". But he's been with Mike before, so the terminology wasn't that different for him". The team did not have any long-term plans for Osweiler, who went 8-6 as a starter for the Texans last season.
