After releasing veteran Mark Sanchez on Saturday, the team quickly announced the signing of veteran journeyman Austin Davis to a one-year deal.
Davis spent last season with the Browns, who released the fifth-year passer in August. An undrafted and unremarkable arm talent out of Southern Miss, Davis has made just 10 NFL starts with 13 touchdowns and 12 picks for the Rams and Cleveland since 2012.
Nothing more than a depth addition for the Broncos, Davis will grasp a clipboard behind starter Trevor Siemian. With first-round rookie Paxton Lynch also on the roster, Broncos general manager John Elway confirmed that Davis is simply “coming in to learn the offense,” per NFL Network’s James Palmer.
If Davis sees meaningful snaps this season, you can be assured that apocalyptic rumblings have shaken Denver’s season to the core.
