  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Will start Saturday

    Rypien will start Saturday's preseason finale against the Vikings, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. With Denver's No. 2 quarterback competition heating up heading into the 2022 campaign, Rypien will start and play for the first half of the contest. The 26-year-old signal caller will have the chance to win the backup job if he has another strong performance similar to Week 2 of the preseason, in which he completed 22 of 26 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown against the Bills. Josh Johnson, however, has been impressive in his own right and offers a lot of experience as an eight-year veteran in the league. Rypien and Johnson will each get a half to prove that they deserve to be Russell Wilson's backup when the Broncos open their season against the Seahawks on Sept. 12.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Shines in loss

    Rypien completed 22 of 26 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown while adding nine yards on three carries in Saturday's 42-15 loss to the Bills. Rypien entered the contest in the second half when the Broncos were already trailing the Bills 35-6, but the fourth-year signal caller made the most of his opportunity. The 26-year-old finds himself in a battle for the No. 2 quarterback spot with veteran Josh Johnson, the latter of whom signed with Denver this offseason. Based on the Broncos' first preseason game against the Cowboys, it seemed Johnson was beginning to separate himself in the competition, but Rypien's impressive performance against Buffalo will likely turn the heat up on the battle for the backup spot. If he has another solid performance in Denver's third preseason game against Minnesota on Aug. 27, Rypien could make a push for the No. 2 role as the coaching staff makes its final roster decisions ahead of the 2022 campaign.

  • 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: 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.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Returns from COVID-19 list

    Rypien was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Following an unprecedented situation that led to practice squad wide receiver Kendall Hinton playing quarterback in Sunday's loss to the Saints, things are back to normal in Denver. Rypien, Drew Lock and Blake Bortles have all been restored from the COVID-19 list. Lock will start under center in the Week 13 matchup against the Chiefs.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Could start versus Jets on Thursday

    Coach Vic Fangio relayed Monday that he hasn't decided whether Rypien or Jeff Driskel will start against the Jets on Thursday, Zac Stevens of reports. With Drew Lock (shoulder) out, Driskel started this past Sunday's loss against the Buccaneers, but he was replaced by Rypien after recording just 5.9 yards per attempt, a touchdown and an interception. Rypien was more accurate and just as efficient, completing eight of nine passes for 53 yards (5.9 YPA) and an interception in his first NFL action. The two may compete during the practice week, and Fangio was clear that Blake Bortles isn't in the starting conversation at this time.

  • Brett Rypien: Set for No. 2 QB duties with Denver

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that the Broncos intend to call Rypien up from the practice squad to serve as the team's backup quarterback Sunday against the Buccaneers, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. Though the Broncos will delay placing Drew Lock (shoulder) on injured reserve, the team's starting signal-caller is still expected to miss at least two games. Denver signed Blake Bortles earlier this week to add some experienced depth at the position while Lock is sidelined, but Fangio suggested Bortles likely won't be ready to serve as anything more than an emergency option at quarterback Sunday, if he's even active for the contest. Since Rypien has familiarity with the Broncos' system after spending the past year and a half with the organization as a member of the offseason roster, 53-man roster or practice squad, Fangio views him as an ideal backup in the short term for Jeff Driskel, who will start in place of Lock in Week 3. Rypien could return to the practice squad as soon as Week 4, when Bortles will presumably be up to speed with the new playbook.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Ends 2019 without a pass

    Rypien dressed as the backup for three games in 2019, but did not appear in any of them. As the Broncos shuffled quarterbacks in Weeks 9 through 12 while both Joe Flacco and Drew Lock were injured, Rypien was briefly promoted to the active roster to back up Brandon Allen. He was cut and came back to the practice squad once Lock came off of injured reserve and signed back with the team at the end of the season. In three preseason games, he made an impressive touchdown throw to fellow rookie Juwann Winfree in the opener, but looked mostly out of sorts. Rypien earned a six-figure signing bonus out of the draft, so the Broncos brass clearly liked his potential. He figures to battle Allen and maybe another body or two in training camp for the right to back up Lock in 2020.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Signs future deal

    Rypien signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The 23-year-old spent most of November on the 53-man roster but was waived and rejoined the practice squad once Drew Locke (thumb) came off injured reserve. Joe Flacco's return from a neck injury isn't guaranteed, which could leave Rypien and Brandon Allen to fight for the backup job behind Locke.

  • Brett Rypien: Sticking in Denver

    Rypien is signing with the Broncos' practice squad, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The 23-year-old was waived by the team over the weekend with Drew Lock (thumb) returning from injured reserve, but he'll remain with Denver on the practice squad after clearing waivers. Rypien didn't see the field during his month-long stint on the 53-man roster.

  • Brett Rypien: Lands on Denver's practice squad

    Rypien signed with the Broncos' practice squad on Sunday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Rypien was in contention for the No. 2 job behind Joe Flacco with Drew Lock (thumb) sidelined, but the Broncos ended up claiming Brandon Allen off waivers to fill the role. Rypien completed 27 of 44 passes for 207 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in three preseason games.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Serviceable in exhibition finale

    Rypien completed eight of 11 attempts for 86 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Broncos' 20-7 preseason win over the Cardinals on Thursday. He also lost two yards on his two rushes. Rypien got his interception out of the way early, as he was picked off at the Cardinals' 43 yard-line on his first drive. Then, following a four-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on which Rypien failed to throw a pass, he bounced back to help lead an 11-play, 73-yard march that culminated in a field goal. The Boise State product remains in contention for the No. 2 job behind Joe Flacco to open the season as a result of Drew Lock (thumb) being on the shelf, with Kevin Hogan serving as Rypien's competition for that role.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Enters backup competition

    Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Rypien is competing for the backup quarterback job, Zac Stevens of reports. Rypien's opportunity comes with rookie second-round pick Drew Lock (thumb) expected to miss the start of the regular season. Lock is guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster and appears destined for the backup gig at some point, but Rypien could earn the No. 2 role to begin the regular season if he's able to beat out Kevin Hogan.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Tosses touchdown in HOF Game

    Rypien completed five of 10 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 14-10 win over the Falcons. Rypien exited Thursday's game with better stats than the other two quarterbacks who dressed for the Broncos, but the performance was uneven. The rookie undrafted free agent sailed some passes early before finding a rhythm during Denver's late scoring drive. His fourth-down 15-yard touchdown pass to Juwann Winfree was more a 10-90 ball than a 50-50 pass, but it was a solid outing nonetheless. Fellow rookie Drew Lock still seems destined for the backup job, but a few more games like Thursday's could make it hard for Denver to try to stash Rypien on the practice squad.

  • Broncos' Brett Rypien: Joins Broncos

    Rypien officially signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Rypien's contract apparently features a six-figure guarantee, which is a significant amount for an undrafted player. Joe Flacco and second-round pick Drew Lock should begin the season as the team's top-two quarterbacks, while Rypien, out of Boise State, is likely to be in direct competition with Kevin Hogan and Garrett Grayson.

  • Brett Rypien: To sign with Denver

    Rypien, an undrafted free agent, is expected to sign a contract with the Broncos, Tom Pelissero of reports. Rypien, like many undrafted players, faces an uphill climb to make an NFL roster in 2019. The Broncos drafted Missouri quarterback Drew Lock in the second round of the draft Friday. Rypien, out of Boise State, will likely compete for the backup or third-string quarterback slot and could wind up on Denver's practice squad if he fails to make the 53-man roster.
