Mark Sanchez still believes that he will be the Denver Broncos starting quarterback

It is all change for the Denver Broncos in 2016, despite being the Super Bowl champions, they are being largely overlooked to repeat next year.

They lost their starting and back-up quarterbacks and other talent from various different positions on the team, but their fans still have hope.

Trade for the future or the Present?

The first round of the 2016 NFL draft threw up lots of different talking points, for Denver, it was their trade with the Seattle Seahawks giving Denver the 26th pick overall.


Who should be the Broncos starting quarterback? Join the debate by becoming a GMS writer HERE:

The Broncos would use the 26th pick to draft Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch - the third highest ranked quarterback in the draft.

Following the departures of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, the Broncos signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez following a trade.

Sanchez and Lynch could be set to battle it out for the starting position, but if Sanchez is to be believed, the battle could be over before it began.

Sanchez claims not to see the drafting of Lynch to be a threat to his possible 'starter' status, but rather an affirmation of his place within the Denver Broncos.

The former Eagles and New York Jets star was one of the first to reach out to Lynch after he was drafted, but does he already consider himself to be the rookie's superior?

Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak spoke about Sanchez during his short time with the Broncos and it does put him in a very positive light.

"We have a lot of confidence in Mark. He's doing a great job, working extremely hard."

There are still many weeks of training and pre-season before a ball is kicked in Denver's season opener against the Carolina Panthers in a rematch of Super Bowl 50, but it will be interesting to see who is starting under centre for the Broncos that night.

A new start?

Denver must surely feel like they are having to build from the bottom once again following the retirement of Peyton Manning.

During the 2015 season, it appeared to everyone that the team were trying to implement back-up Osweiler into the new starter during Manning's absence.

But being benched upon Manning's return was clearly enough to drive the quarterback out of Mile High and into Houston.
