Top Brett Rypien News

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Signs tender

    Rypien signed his one-year exclusive rights tender Monday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Rypien spent the majority of the 2021 season as the Broncos' No. 3 signal-caller behind Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock, appearing in just one game and logging three snaps in total. Even with Bridgewater (Miami) and Lock (Seattle) in new locations, Rypien's outlook won't change much in 2022. The Broncos acquired Russell Wilson from the Seahawks earlier in the offseason, while Josh Johnson looks like the favorite for the backup role after he was brought aboard in March on a one-year, $1.3 million deal.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Tendered by Broncos

    The Broncos extended a contract tender to Rypien on Sunday.

    Rypien played just three offensive snaps during the 2021 campaign and failed to complete either of his two pass attempts. As an exclusive rights free agent, he'll return to Denver in 2022 to serve as a reserve to Russell Wilson.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Won't suit up Sunday

    Rypien (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    With Drew Lock back off the reserve/COVID-19 list, Rypien slides back down the depth chart. He has not appeared in a game this season.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Ascends to No. 2 role Week 9

    Rypien will serve as the backup quarterback behind starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Aside from exiting early in Week 4 with a concussion, Bridgewater has been healthy and has started every game this season, resulting in Rypien being a fixture on the inactive list as the team's No. 3 quarterback. However, with top backup Drew Lock moving to the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Rypien will get the chance to dress Week 9. The Broncos haven't revealed whether Lock tested positive for the virus or if he was ruled out for contact tracing, making it unclear if Rypien will remain the No. 2 signal-caller beyond this week.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Joins active roster

    The Broncos signed Rypien to their 53-man roster Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of Denver's official site reports.

    Rypien appeared in three games for the Broncos last season and won his only start. When Teddy Bridgewater was acquired in the offseason, it was almost a foregone conclusion that Rypien wouldn't earn a spot on the initial 53-man roster. He signed with Denver's practice squad to start the season, but he has been called up to the active roster to avoid another team signing him.

  • Brett Rypien: Back to practice squad

    The Broncos signed Rypien to the practice squad Wednesday, Howard Balzer of reports.

    Rypien appeared in three games for Denver last season, but with Teddy Bridgewater starting the 2021 season and Drew Lock available behind him, there wasn't room for a third quarterback on the initial 53-man roster. He will continue his development on the practice squad.

  • Brett Rypien: Lands on waivers

    Rypien was waived by the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Teddy Bridgewater will start at quarterback for the Broncos while Drew Lock serves as the backup. Rypien played in three games last season with one start, completing 68 percent of his passes for 295 yards (7.4 YPA), two touchdowns and four interceptions. If he clears waivers, he'll land on the practice squad.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Gets one start in sophomore season

    Rypien completed 27 of 40 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions during the 2020 season. He lost five yards on five carries.

    Rypien started the season as QB3 but impressed enough in relief in Week 3's loss to Tampa Bay to get the start for the injured Drew Lock in Week 4's win versus the Jets. Rypien kept New York in that game with a handful of poor decisions but he also made some big plays downfield, most notably a 48-yard deep shot to Jerry Jeudy for a touchdown. At that point, Rypien became Denver's QB2. Whether he stays there depends on the offseason. The Broncos are almost certainly going to look for competition for Lock either in free agency or the draft. That could push Rypien down a slot heading into 2021.
