The Denver Broncos hit the practice field on Wednesday under newly named starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, but also welcomed another quarterback into the mix, seventh-round draft pick, Chad Kelly. Siemian had completed just 5-of-14 passes for 56 yards and two interceptions by halftime - "horrific", his coach called the throws - while compiling an 8.9 quarterback rating.
The Broncos have yet to officially announce the switch. ". If you try to go the same way and it doesn't get better, that's on me".
"When you watch Trevor, even last night, he made three frightful interceptions, " Joseph said.
Osweiler spent his first four National Football League seasons with the Broncos as Peyton Manning's backup and had stints with the Texans and Browns before re-signing with Denver in September ahead of the regular season.
The 26-year-old Osweiler, now in his second stint with Denver, signed with the Broncos in September after Paxton Lynch was injured.

During Howard University's homecoming weekend recently, students feared for their safety after an active shooter report . Sutton called the deadly shooting a "horrible tragedy" and "nothing that anybody would've ever wanted to have happened".
Osweiler, Peyton Manning's longtime backup, was expected to take over the Broncos QB job past year following Manning's retirement a month after Denver's Super Bowl 50 win.
That was when Osweiler signed back with the Broncos.
However, the Broncos have seen enough of Osweiler to know what he is and are likely just hoping he will cut down on turnovers. Lynch started two games as a rookie last season and went 1-1. As for what the Eagles' defense should expect, let's just hope Osweiler comes out a little rusty, and shows similarities of the quarterback that struggled all of past year with the Texans.
"It's my job to do what's best for the football team", Joseph said Tuesday.
The Texans proceeded to trade Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns this past offseason, but Osweiler ended up losing out to the trio of DeShone Kizer, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan and was released by the Browns.
