The Denver Broncos cut Mark Sanchez Saturday. Hours later, they replaced him.
The Broncos signed former Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Rams quarterback Austin Davis to serve as their third-stringer, according to Troy Renck.
Davis has bounced around throughout his four-year career. He began with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi. After riding the bench during his rookie season, Davis was cut by the Rams in 2013 before rejoining the team later that year. He ultimately started eight games in 2014, going 3-5 with 2,0001 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.
Davis moved on to Cleveland, where he started two games. He went 0-2 with 547 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions during his lone season with the Browns.
Davis will slot in behind starter Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch on the depth chart. Siemian beat out Sanchez for the starting job despite not having a regular-season pass on his resume. Lynch is deemed as the starter of the future after Denver traded up to take him 26th overall in the draft.
