When the Broncos open training camp on Thursday, fans will get their first look at one of the AFC's top quarterback battles.
Elway, though, confirmed the choice will "be Vance's," while adding: "I'll give my input," per ESPN. The team's football czar emphasized that team brass would avoid disagreement because "everybody is going to see it ... it's going to show itself."
Siemian played well last season, showing a live arm and making plenty of good decisions over 14 starts. Lynch, though, looms as the hand-picked choice of Elway, who traded up in last year's draft to grab him.
Truly seen as an open competition, Denver's quarterback tussle has a legitimate chance to wind on beyond Joseph's preferred preseason deadline. The reality is that both of these passers are bound to see starts in 2017.
