Siemian is set to compete with Paxton Lynch for the starting job, but the Broncos have been strongly linked with Tony Romo.
The severity of his shoulder injury is usually seen in vehicle crashes, not on football fields, and the recovery can take up to half a year.
Siemian played with the bad shoulder in Week 4 - he missed one game because of it and another with a left foot injury.
Romo's base salary alone is one major sticking point in any attempt by the Cowboys to trade him. "I think Jerry's going to be due to meet with him sooner than later". I think when you start talking about another veteran quarterback, you don't just talk about next year.
There are obviously a lot of moving parts there, but the connection is new Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who coached Siemian past year and would like a guy who knew his system.
Although the Broncos have Von Miller and Shane Ray as the starters, they could represent the ideal situation for Ware as he enters his 13th season.
The decisions he must make now are similar to the ones he had to make last off-season, when his team lacked a proven starting quarterback and a reliable offensive line.
For now, the Broncos have two quarterbacks with 16 starts between them and the potential to reach new heights, especially if they are playing behind a revamped offensive line.
Of course, there's also the 2017 Draft which Elway and other Broncos execs are evaluating while in Indianapolis at the NFL's annual scouting combine. As I said, even though we didn't exercise the option on Russell that's not saying he's not going to be back.
OTC has the Cowboys with $3.3 million in cap room heading into free agency, while Spotrac has the Cowboys with $5.5 million. After what amounted to a year off from football as Dak Prescott took his job and ran with it, Romo has opted for adorable videos involving his sons instead of dark, brooding videos where he speaks directly into the phone about aging and how darkness will one day envelop us all.
"We'll look at other guys who will be on the market", Elway said.
"Everyone thinks we just talk about next year, but we don't", Elway said.
Last season, the Broncos were unable to defend their Super Bowl 50 crown after losing Peyton Manning to retirement and moving forward with Trevor Siemian, a former seventh-round pick, at the game's most important position.
"Obviously, he's got great skills".
Gilmore completed his fifth season in Buffalo with a team-leading five interceptions and a team-high 12 passes defensed.
