Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian named co-starters in Denver

Mike Florio explains why the competition for the Broncos' starting QB job might not end after the preseason.

Just as The Office was beginning to show its age and lose its edge, a storyline emerged with Michael Scott and Jim Halpert serving as co-managers of the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin. The same thing could be happening for the Denver Broncos, in more ways than one.

At quarterback, Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian have been named co-starters on the team’s first depth chart of the year, via multiple reports.

The Dwight Schrute in the equation apparently is Paxton Lynch, who is at best the assistant to the co-starting quarterbacks, at least for now.

It remains to be seen how the preseason reps will be divided between Sanchez and Siemian. Presumably, they’ll get roughly equal reps with the No. 1 offense until the third preseason game. By then, coach Gary Kubiak should be closer to naming the first guy who inevitably will be benched at some point during the regular season.
