Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer says there's "no question" that Siemian is the backup quarterback, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Siemian had been competing with Kyle Sloter and Peter Pujals for the backup job in training camp, but Zimmer has put to bed any doubts about the status of the competition. Siemian played in 26 games for the Broncos the past three years and he'll be an experienced backup behind starting quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Siemian was just 4-of-8 for three yards passing in Friday's preseason win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Siemian has had an up-and-down preseason, but he's locked in as Kirk Cousins' backup.

Siemian showed good command of the Vikings offense during spring workouts.

EDGE Analysis

Siemian's ability to pick up the offense is notable on two fronts, with the first being that the Vikings offense is a completely different system than the one Siemian played within in Denver. Secondly, Siemian doesn't appear to be limited in any way following offseason surgery to repair a rotator cuff in his left, non-throwing shoulder. Unless second-year signal-caller Kyle Sloter takes massive strides in training camp this summer, the Northwestern product appears set to open the 2018 campaign as Minnesota's top backup to Kirk Cousins.

Siemian and a 7th-round draft pick in 2018 were traded to Minnesota from Denver for a 5th-round draft pick in 2019, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Siemian will serve as the backup quarerback to Kirk Cousins, one the Vikings and Cousins have finalized his expected three-year contract. When given significant playing time the past two seasons, Siemian couldn't avoid the injury bug, tending to his non-throwing shoulder on both occasions. In 25 appearances during that stretch, the 2015 seventh-round pick completed 59.3 percent of his passes, averaged 218.7 yards per game and accounted for 30 touchdowns versus 24 interceptions.

The Broncos are expected to trade Siemian to the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The two sides may still be hammering out the specifics of the deal, but Siemian would serve as the backup signal caller to Kirk Cousins, whose contract has yet to be agreed upon.

Siemian (shoulder) is expected to be available via trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Denver appears ready to move on from their 2015 seventh-round pick as they look to find a signal caller with higher upside to lead its offense. In fact, management is expected to "aggressively" address the quarterback position in free agency and the draft. It isn't clear how much demand Siemian could demand via trade or what teams might be interested, but he has a connection with an assistant coach on the quarterback-needy Jets in run-game coordinator and offensive line coach Rick Dennison, who was the Broncos offensive coordinator in 2016 when Siemian threw for his career-best 3,401 yards and 18 touchdowns in 14 games. With Brock Osweiler set to be an unrestricted free agent, the Broncos otherwise have Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly (wrist) under contract for 2018.

Siemian was scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair the posterior capsule in his left, non-throwing shoulder, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nearly one year ago, Siemian had his left shoulder surgically repaired, so he's in line to focus on rehabilitation for a second straight offseason. Perhaps of more interest than his health is the state of the quarterback room in Denver. Change is in the air after a season in which Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler all received a fair amount of first-team work en route to the 20th-ranked pass offense by the end of the year. Siemian, Lynch and Chad Kelly are all under contract in 2018, but there's little doubt general manager John Elway will add another quarterback in free agency or via the draft.

Siemian completed 206 of 349 passes for 2,285 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions during 2017. He added 127 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries and fumbled four times.

EDGE Analysis

The way Siemian started the season against the Chargers and Cowboys, some thought that he might have emerged as a late-round find with seven total touchdowns and two wins. Things unraveled quickly and Siemian saw declines in completion percentage, yards per attempt, and quarterback rating as compared to his first go-around in 2016. He was eventually benched, reinstated, and re-injured his non-throwing shoulder to end the year on injured reserve. Change is coming to the Broncos quarterback room in the draft, free agency , or -- perhaps -- both. If given the option to hang on to a big-armed passer Denver spent a first-round pick on in Paxton Lynch and Siemian, a former seventh-round pick, it seems likely that Siemian would be the one to go. Either way, expect Denver to have a better plan for 2018 than letting Siemian compete for the starting job.

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph confirmed Friday that Siemian (shoulder) would be placed on injured reserve and miss the team's final two games of the season, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

On a lighter note, Siemian, who suffered a partial dislocation of his non-throwing shoulder in Thursday's win over the Colts, won't require surgery to address the injury. With only rest and rehab on the docket, Siemian should have a relatively normal offseason, but his underwhelming play this season likely has Denver turning its attention toward other starting options at quarterback in 2018. Brock Osweiler, who came on in relief for Siemian on Thursday, is currently positioned to start the Broncos' final two contests of 2017, but Paxton Lynch (ankle) could get another look if healthy enough to play in either game.
