NFL is starting today and the Denver Broncos is entering the scene with former seventh-round pick Trevor Sieman.
He will replace Peyton Manning, who ended his NFL career with a Super Bowl 50 victory. Here are some facts about Trever Siemian you might want to know.
This 23-year-old quarterback is a native from Orlando, Florida. He started in Northwestern as a three-star recruit back in 2011, and was a part-time starter.
Trevor Siemian rose from being a starter to taking the reigns in 11 games. However, he tore his ACL two games before the last. Finishing his career with a passer rate of 59 percent, 7 touchdowns, and 24 interceptions in 14 starts, Trevoer Siemian’s stats was not enough for NFL, as what The Ringer said.
However, Trevor Siemen caught the attention of Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak at the first two weeks of the preseason.
Trevor Siemian fared well as a passer, with 65 percent passes for 163 yards and an interception, while taking care of the ball. This has led him to Kubiak letting him start in the third game against the Rams.
NFL player Trevor Siemian finished it off with 10 of 17 passes for 122 yards with a touchdown and a pick
“Trevor is in command of what we do, how we do it, what we want to get done,” Gary Kubiak told Denver Post.
ESPN mentioned that the head coach also wanted Trevor Siemian to be aggressive despite the inevitable mistakes he can commit.
“All players are going to make mistakes. He’s going to make some. What I really liked is how he came back after it.”
The quarterback’s ability to control defense is what also caught the eye of the coach. In their game against the Rams, the footballer showed how he searched for the deep safeties while having a smooth and easy-throwing motion.
Meanwhile, Trevor Siemian is welcoming himself via Twitter and Instagram just last August.
