Broncos quarterbacks voice support for interim offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave – The Denver Post

It is unclear whether any combination of Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian will have an opportunity to compete for the Broncos’ starting quarterback job in 2018.

But as they left Dove Valley on Monday, the day after Denver completed a 5-11 season, the three players voiced support for the man who could be guiding the Broncos’ offense next season: interim coordinator Bill Musgrave. A decision had not been reached by Monday morning as to whether Musgrave will be retained, but he has the backing, whatever it’s worth, of the three quarterbacks who made starts after he took over for Mike McCoy, who was fired Nov. 20.

“I love working with Bill,” said Osweiler, who started one game, at Washington, under Musgrave and played in three quarters of a victory at Indianapolis. “I just told him in our exit meeting, ‘Thank you for you being you. You’re an incredible coach and incredible person to be around. You make playing football fun.’ Not only does he make football fun, he’s also a great coordinator.”

Siemian, whose shoulder injury in the first quarter of the Dec. 14 game at Indianapolis ended his season, said Musgrave “dialed down the volume” of the playbook after taking over for McCoy. The Broncos averaged 18.3 points during 10 games with McCoy, only 14.6 points following a 2-0 start. Denver averaged 17.7 points in Musgrave’s six games, with three different starting quarterbacks running his offense.

“He helped me a lot,” Lynch said of Musgrave. “I know it was kind of tough with the transition after McCoy left, but I think Coach Musgrave did a good job taking over and implementing his plan for us. Not completely changing the playbook, but kind of honing it down and and making it simple so guys could go out there and play fast.”

Davis talks future. After playing the 2017 season on a one-year, $2.75 million deal he signed last April as a restricted free agent, linebacker Todd Davis will enter this offseason with a chance to land a multiyear deal.

The question for the now unrestricted free agent is whether he’ll sign that deal with Denver.

“I love this team,” Davis said Monday. “I love this organization. We’ll see what happens. I’m very excited for the future with this organization, but we’ll see.”

The 25-year-old Davis, starting at inside linebacker for the second straight season, finished with 82 tackles and one sack in 14 games this season. He played through numerous injuries and was the winner of the team’s Ed Block Courage Award, which is given to players who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.
