With only Tim Tebow and Adam Weber under contract in 2012, John Fox confirmed Monday what many had already concluded — the Denver Broncos will be signing a couple of quarterbacks this offseason. They’ll want four QB’s under contract when they head into training camp in July.
“Who, what, where, when, what market — it’s still way too early how we get those quarterbacks,” Fox told The Denver Post, seemingly leaving the door open for the Broncos to retain unrestricted free agent Brady Quinn, though the report does not mention him.
As for Tebow, he’s still the presumed starter.
“He’s going to come into our camp as the starting quarterback,” Fox said. “He’s young. He can get better.”
Fox also endorsed Tebow working out with UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone. “I think it’s great,” Fox said. “It beats sitting on the couch somewhere.”
The free agent QB market is pretty slim. If I had to guess, I’d look for the Broncos to spend one of their earlier draft picks (Rounds 2-4) on a quarterback and keep Brady Quinn.
