The Broncos’ Replacement For Peyton Manning Is… Mark Sanchez (No Joke)

It has been a crazy week for the Denver Broncos and their quarterback situation, first seeing future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning retire on Monday, then seeing his backup, Brock Osweiler, avoid a fight during a late-night pizza run and bolt the Rockies for more money to join the Houston Texans, but, I have to say, NO ONE could have seen it ending like this.

That’s because sources have confirmed that the Super Bowl champs just traded for Mark Sanchez, sending a conditional draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles for the former first-rounder.

Here’s what Denver Broncos’ president John Elway tweeted out about the trade:

Sanchez, who helped guide the New York Jets to back-to-back AFC title games in 2009 and 2010, is, apparently, the signal-caller the Broncos believe can help them defend their title—although, no one will blame you for laughing out loud with that statement.

I’m no Fortune teller, but, based off of history, I have a feeling this won’t end well for Sanchez and the Broncos. Just a hunch, though.
