Returning: Adam Weber.
Acquired: Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler and Caleb Hanie.
Manning will presumably be the starter this season, which leaves Weber, Osweiler and Hanie to compete for the remaining two spots. Which one should be the No. 2 QB?
During minicamp, Weber, Osweiler and Hanie all took turns with the second team during practice. Per reports, Osweiler had the cleanest overall performance with Weber close behind. That would leave Hanie as the odd man out.
With Weber still practice squad eligible, the Broncos may go Manning 1, Hanie 2, Osweiler 3 and place Weber on the practice squad unit. Or, Weber may beat out Haine — anything could happen.
