The Denver Broncos will be reacquainted with their former quarterback when they face Brock Osweiler and the Texans on Monday night, and it sounds like the defending champs still haven’t gotten over Osweiler bolting Denver when he agreed to a $72 million contract in March.
Earlier this week, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall said he’s happy for his former teammate but that doesn’t mean Denver is going to take it easy on him.
“There’s no ill will toward Brock. I am happy he got paid,” Marshall said. “But it’s competition. We want to kill him.”
If that quote was meant to intimidate Osweiler, it doesn’t sound like it worked. When asked about Marshall’s comments, Osweiler opted to laugh off the whole thing.
“It sounds like they miss me,” Osweiler said, via the Houston Chronicle.
The Broncos’ offense has struggled the past two games, averaging just 14.5 points during the two losses. But it’s not like Osweiler has been worth the lucrative contract he signed in the offseason, completing just 59 percent of his passes to go along with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.
