The Cowboys will sign the recently-released Sanchez, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a stellar preseason, Dak Prescott proved to head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the Cowboys' decision makers that he's capable of running the offense in Tony Romo's (back) stead. However, with only second-year pro Jameill Showers available for quarterback duty, Sanchez will be brought in to provide a veteran presence in the QB room.

The Broncos released Sanchez on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez's fate was seemingly sealed when he was held out of the final two preseason games, but Denver's brass has made it official. Head coach Gary Kubiak will thus hand the reins of the offense to Trevor Siemian when the Broncos open the post-Peyton Manning era on Thursday against the Panthers. Meanwhile, Sanchez could land on a quarterback-needy team like the Cowboys in the near future.

Sanchez won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game at Arizona, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez's second DNP in a row could be the final nail in the coffin for life as a Bronco. With Trevor Siemian slated to be under center in Week 1, Sanchez is seemingly on pace to enter the free market in the near future, barring a trade to a quarterback-needy organization.

Sanchez has been informed that Trevor Siemian will be the Broncos' starting quarterback, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once considered the favorite to start, Sanchez lost ground to Trevor Siemian during training camp and the preseason. Although Siemian wasn't particularly impressive in the exhibition games, Sanchez sealed his fate by turning the ball over three times in two appearances. He didn't even play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, leaving his roster spot in question as cut-downs approach. The Broncos seemingly believe Paxton Lynch is ready for the No. 2 quarterback job.

Sanchez did not play in Saturday's preseason game as Trevor Siemian appears to have secured the starting quarterback job, Denver ABC 7 reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a poor preseason, it looks all but certain that Sanchez will be cut and not make the final roster. Denver will save $3.5 million in salary cap space and not lose a 7th-round draft pick if they cut Sanchez.

Sanchez will be the third quarterback to enter Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is yet another sign that Sanchez has fallen behind Trevor Siemian in the battle for Denver's starting quarterback job. While not necessarily out of the picture, Sanchez may not even make the final roster if the Broncos decide that Siemian is the starter and Paxton Lynch is ready to serve as the backup.

Sanchez might not make the team if Trevor Siemian earns the starting job and Paxton Lynch proves to be a suitable No. 2, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The rationale makes sense. Siemian and Lynch are almost certain to be on the team - in some order on the depth chart - in 2017 and so if one is capable of starting and one is capable of backing up, it would make sense to move forward with that twosome in 2016, develop the team's young talent at quarterback and save money by cutting Sanchez. The same logic would apply should Lynch come out and earn the starting job with Siemian clearly capable of serving as the back up. Sanchez, who had a hold on the starting job up until a few weeks ago, has moved the ball well in both preseason games, but has also turned the ball over three times - more than Lynch and Siemian combined.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold suggests that Trevor Siemian -- who is slated to start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams -- has a leg up at this time on both Sanchez and Paxton Lynch.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear whether Sanchez or Lynch will enter Saturday's game after Siemian, though coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that they all are "going to play an equal amount." In any case, where Sanchez was once the favorite to hold things down at QB for Denver until Lynch (drafted 26th overall in April) was ready to take over, it now looks as though Siemian will need to falter this weekend in order to not claim the team's top job at the position.

Sanchez will receive equal playing time to both Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, but Siemian will start at quarterback, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez started the Broncos' preseason opener, but made way for Siemian to start Denver's game against the 49ers over the weekend. In that contest, Sanchez completed 10 of his 17 passes for 120 yards, but lost two fumbles. Although Siemian didn't fare much better and the rookie Lynch got to close the game again, Siemian will be handed another start this weekend. That being said, all three quarterbacks will get equal playing time against Los Angeles, giving them a final opportunity to grab hold of Denver's starting job before coach Gary Kubiak names his man next week.

Trevor Siemian will start the Broncos' third preseason game against the Rams, Siemian (shoulder) will get the start in the Broncos' third preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news is a blow to Sanchez, the team's presumed starter entering camp, as the third preseason game is often when starters are featured the most. Head coach Gary Kubiak has said that he plans to announce the team's starter next week - making Saturday the final audition. Sanchez will get his chance to bounce back as all three Denver quarterbacks are expected to split time evenly during the game. Sanchez and Siemian have each led Denver to an early touchdown drive this preseason, but Sanchez has struggled with turnovers, committing three to Siemian's one.
