We reported that the offer was for around $10 million per season. Not only has our report been recapitulated via other major media outlets, like NFL Network, some are now even reporting that the Broncos offered Osweiler $39 million over three years.
In our original report, sources told us that Osweiler wanted $16 million per year, and is confident he can get it on the open market when free agency opens this coming Tuesday.
If what we're hearing elsewhere is true, the Broncos have upped the ante to $13 million per year, with the majority of the first two years guaranteed.
For a guy who has only started seven games in his four-year career, that would a fair, perhaps even generous contract. Even still, it sounds like Osweiler is bent on testing the market.
With the Peyton Manning deadline rapidly approaching, the Broncos quarterback situation moving forward is far from settled.
