The Denver Broncos are expected to reunite with former quarterback Brock Osweiler, who was recently released by the Cleveland Browns. Mary Kay Cabot of reported that the Broncos may sign Osweiler as early as Saturday. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider, the Browns will still be on the hook for the majority of the guaranteed $16 million that Osweiler will earn in the coming season, minus the minimum salary the Broncos are expected to pay him. Rapoport added that the Broncos want Osweiler to fill their backup role behind starter Trevor Siemian.

Paxton Lynch, the supposed backup, suffered a shoulder sprain that will keep him out of action for a few weeks

The Broncos drafted Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, but he spent the majority of his time in Denver as a backup to the now-retired Peyton Manning. In 2015, he played eight games, throwing for 1,967 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions. The following year, he signed a four-year, $72-million deal with the Houston Texans. However, his stint with the Texans lasted just one season as he was traded to the Browns in the summer. Instead of trading or releasing him immediately after the trade, the Brown gave Osweiler a chance to become their starting quarterback, but he was a disappointment in two preseason starts.

This prompted the Brown to pick DeShone Kizer as a starter and release Osweiler.

Patriots trade QB for wideout

The New England Patriots shipped third-string quarterback and 2016 third-round pick Jacoby Brissett to the Indianapolis Colts for former first-round wideout Phillip Dorsett. Last year, Brissett went 1-1 in two starts during Tom Brady's suspension, throwing for 400 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Patriots wanted an additional wideout after Julian Edelman suffered a season-ending torn ACL two weeks ago. Dorsett, a first-round pick in 2015, will beef up the Patriots’ strong receiving corps, behind Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. In his rookie year, Dorsett played 11 games, catching 18 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown.

The following year, he suited up for 15 games, receiving 33 throws for 528 yards and two scores.

Cowboys acquire veteran cornerback

The Dallas Cowboys traded their conditional 2019 sixth-round pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for veteran cornerback Bene' Benwikere, who will join the team’s secondary alongside Orlando Scandrick, Nolan Carroll and Anthony Brown. The 25-year-old Benwikere is a versatile cornerback who can play on the outside and in the slot. Aside from the Bengals, Benwikere also played with the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers and the Carolina Panthers. The Cowboys will face the New York Giants in Week 1.
