Trevor Siemian's job now seems far from secure, but he's unfazed by the pressure.
The Denver Broncos have stated that they will allow last year's first round pick Paxton Lynch to compete for the starting job. There have also been numerous rumors that the team may attempt to acquire Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo.
Despite Denver's apparent willingness to move on from him, Siemian seemed unworried during an appearance on 104.3 The Fan. Siemian said it's the type of adversity he's battled throughout his career and knows he will continue to face in the future.
"It doesn't (bother me). That's the deal I'm in," Siemian said, according to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. "I was a seventh-round pick. I'm not as dumb as I look, I'm going to have to fight and scratch and claw my way my whole career. I'm fine with that. Truthfully, I wouldn't have it any other way."
The Broncos didn’t make the playoffs despite finishing fourth in the league in both points and yards allowed, losing four of their last six games. Siemian's play was largely mediocre and the Broncos defense carried the team for the majority of the season.
He finished the season with 18 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, 3,401 passing yards, and a completion percentage of 59.6 percent, which leaves the Broncos hoping for improved play or a new quarterback all together.
