According to Broncos general manager John Elway, the team will "stay the course" at quarterback, where Lynch and Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will compete for snaps this spring, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

Lynch's rookie season was spent vying for reps behind Siemian, so his continued competition there is nothing new, but Elway's comments seem to suggest the Broncos may no longer be interested in acquiring Tony Romo. In that scenario, Lynch would have a much better chance of earning Denver's starting job this season, since dethroning Siemian is far more realistic than Lynch potentially playing over Romo. Whether Elway sticks with Siemian and Lynch as his top options this offseason remains to be seen, but his most recent statements appear favorable for the Broncos' current signal-callers.
