Browns to release QB Osweiler, still pay him $16M

However, Osweiler threw a wrench into those plans during free agency when he chose to spurn the Broncos and sign a four-year, $72 million deal with the Texans.

Several national sources are reporting the Denver Broncos' interest in signing former quarterback Brock Osweiler sometime Saturday.

After just one season, the Texans traded Osweiler in March to the Browns, who will pay Osweiler his $16 million guaranteed salary this season minus the offset from the Broncos.

The deal comes just one day after the Cleveland Browns released the five-year veteran.

"Without Brock that year, we don't win the Super Bowl", Elway said, "but I'm sure it's been a long 18 months for him". But given his experience in Mike McCoy's offense, it wouldn't be all that surprising if Osweiler holds onto the backup job even when Lynch is healthy enough to return.

Brock Osweiler will get to keep No. 17. He said Monday he has no regrets about his decision to leave a year ago, but he is "ecstatic" to return to the Broncos.

Despite two teams giving up on him, Osweiler, who has a 13-8 record as a starter with 26 touchdowns and 22 interceptions, still believes in his ability. And then I know I've thanked [President of Football Operations/General Manager] John [Elway] up and down.

Both nationally and locally, football followers are questioning Elway's wisdom in bringing back Osweiler. However, he couldn't beat out DeShone Kizer for the Browns' starting spot or Cody Kessler for the team's No. 2 quarterback position.

"When we look at it, he knows our system". Osweiler said Monday that not only was he ecstatic to be back with the Broncos, but that he fully understands his role this time around.

Parkey joined the Browns in Week 3 last season after Patrick Murray injured his knee in practice. "We'll show him that and give him a little love". Elway's original plan in 2016 was to make Osweiler the starter, and now, not only does he get to go back to that original plan, but he'll likely be able to do it at his own price.
