NFL Rumors: Mark Sanchez Gets Good Grades From Coach Gary Kubiak
The Denver Broncos will have to buckle down to work soon and address their quarterback rotation.Advertisement
Everyone knows the story behind the Broncos. Peyton Manning opted to retire while Brock Osweiler took his act to the Houston Texans. The latter was being groomed as the ultimate replacement for Manning but the 25-year-old had other plans in mind.
Right now, the Broncos have to make do with Mark Sanchez. The 29-year-old player was acquired by Denver back in March via trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Broncos gave up a conditional seventh-round pick in 2017.

His entry was unstable at first with the Broncos being linked to other names like Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III. But now it looks like coach Gary Kubiak will have to make ends meet with Sanchez.
Sanchez Impressive So Far
The latest on Sanchez is that he has so far been impressive. Those came no less from Kubiak, who seems content at what the fifth overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft has been showing in training camp.
“I thought Mark was very sharp in practice,” Kubiak said via USA Today. “I’ve got to go back and watch film but he just looked … confident.’’
Right now, the Broncos have Sanchez, Trevor Siemian, and rookie Paxton Lynch to work with. Of the three, Sanchez is looming to be the starter for the Broncos next season. But critics now ask, “Is Mark Sanchez the right guy to quarterback Denver for the coming NFL season?”
There are some who remain skeptical and believe that Siemian or Lynch have a small window of opportunity to snag the starting quarterback position. It may be possible though the recent showing at training camp seems to point to Sanchez as the most likely person to lead the Broncos next season.
Will it be enough to push the team to Super Bowl LV1? All that remains to be seen.
