Trevor Siemian: Pens future contract

Siemian signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Siemian served as the emergency backup quarterback for the Titans and Saints in 2020. The Northwestern product last played meaningful snaps in 2017 when he completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,285 yards (6.5YPA), 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions over 11 games with the Broncos. With Drew Brees set to retire, Siemian could secure a backup role behind Taysom Hill (knee) or Jameis Winston in 2021.

Trevor Siemian: Heads to Big Easy

The Saints signed Siemian to the active roster Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Siemian hasn't played since suffering a severe ankle injury in Week 2 of the 2019 season, but he's back to full health. With Drew Brees (ribs) on injured reserve, Siemian will head to New Orleans to serve as the No. 3 quarterback behind Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston.

Trevor Siemian: Makes practice squad

The Titans signed Siemian to the practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Siemian joined the Titans mid-August, but he wasn't able to make it through final roster cuts. Instead, the 2015 seventh-round pick will remain on the practice squad as an emergency option at quarterback.

Trevor Siemian: Released by Titans

Siemian was released by the Titans on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Siemian had only been with the Titans for a little over two weeks so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to see him hit the waiver wire. Logan Woodside is now penciled in as the backup to Ryan Tannehill while Siemian figures to at least have some sort of market down the road, even if he's not necessarily with a team to begin the 2020 campaign.

Trevor Siemian: Lands deal with Tennessee

The Titans have signed Siemian, Turron Davenport of reports.

Analysis: In a corresponding move, the team elected to waive seventh-round pick Cole McDonald, who had been penciled in as the team's No. 3 QB behind Ryan Tannehill and Logan Woodside. Siemian, a seventh-round pick himself (in 2015), gives the Titans a backup signal-caller with NFL starting experience behind Tannehill, who the team signed to a long-term extension in March.

Trevor Siemian: Recovers from ankle injury

Siemian (ankle) has been deemed healthy and is set to become a free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Siemian stepped in as the Jets' starting quarterback when Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis in September, but the veteran lasted just 18 snaps before suffering a season-ending ankle injury that involved ligament damage and required surgery. Now given a clean bill of health, Siemian will look for a No. 2 QB job, perhaps even returning to New York for another year.

Trevor Siemian: Heads to IR

Siemian (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Siemian has already been ruled out for the season, so this move was to make room for David Fales on the roster. Going forward, Luke Falk will be starting under center for the Jets and Fales will be the backup until Sam Darnold (illness) gets back to full health. Siemian will be a free agent in March.

Trevor Siemian: Out for season

Siemian will miss the remainder of the 2019 season with an ankle injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: According to Rich Cimini of, Siemian has a ligament issue with his ankle and will need surgery. The 27-year-old was set to start in place of Sam Darnold, who is missing time with mono. The Jets' only healthy quarterback is currently Luke Falk -- who will start under center until Darnold returns -- so it wouldn't surprise if the team held quarterback tryouts and brought in more passers for insurance.

Trevor Siemian: MRI scheduled

Siemian (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Siemian suffered a gruesome looking ankle injury as he was being knocked to the ground by Myles Garrett, forcing him to exit the contest in the first quarter. Look for more updates on his status to come after he receives the MRI. The Jets are currently down to one healthy quarterback, Luke Falk, so expect quarterback tryouts in New York this week regardless of Siemian's condition.

Trevor Siemian: Ruled out with ankle injury

Siemian has officially been ruled out of Monday's game with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Siemian appeared to suffer a significant injury after being hit late by Myles Garrett in the first half. Luke Falk will take over for the immediate future with normal starter Sam Darnold (illness) also out.

September 16, 2019 7:20 PM EST

Trevor Siemian: Officially an ankle injury

Siemian is officially being evaluated for an ankle injury.

Analysis: Siemian suffered a gruesome-looking injury in the second quarter. Luke Falk will take over as the Jets' starting quarterback with Siemian and Sam Darnold (illness) both out.

September 16, 2019 6:47 PM EST

Trevor Siemian: Exits with leg injury

Siemian suffered a lower leg injury in Monday's game against the Browns and has been replaced by Luke Falk, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: The injury appears to be significant, as Siemian got his leg caught underneath him while receiving a late hit from Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. He did not have much success through the air filling in for regular starter Sam Darnold (illness), taking two sacks and completing three-of-six passes for 3 yards. The Jets now turn to Luke Falk, who was signed off the practice squad hours before Monday's game.

Trevor Siemian: Set to fill in for Darnold

With Sam Darnold sidelined by a case of mononucleosis, Siemian is slated to start Monday night's game against the Browns, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Analysis: Beyond Monday's tilt, the Jets are bracing for the possibility that Darnold could miss several weeks. In the meantime, Luke Falk has been promoted to the team's active roster to back up Siemian. Given that the Jets have a Week 4 bye, it's possible that Darnold could be a candidate to return for the Jets' Oct. 6 game against the Eagles. In such a scenario, Siemian would be on track for at least two starts, which puts him on the fantasy radar in two-QB formats, as well as for those scrambling to find a fill-in for Darnold.

Trevor Siemian: Strengthens case for No. 2 gig

Siemian completed 13 of 16 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown while adding 13 yards on two rushing attempts in Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants.

Analysis: Siemian dinked and dunked his way to a modest performance, highlighted by a seven-yard touchdown pass to Elijah McGuire. His case for the backup job was strengthened by a combination of Siemian's competence and an awful performance from third-stringer Davis Webb, who completed two of seven passes for 11 yards and two interceptions.

Trevor Siemian: Fighting for backup job

Siemian isn't guaranteed to start the season as the No.2 quarterback behind Sam Darnold, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis Webb showcased himself well in the spring and worked as the Jets' second quarterback for the final set of OTAs. Siemian's experience as a starter -- 24 starts with Denver in 2016 and 2017 -- gives him a sizable edge over Webb, who has yet to make his NFL debut. Siemian joined New York on a one-year, $2 million deal this offseason that includes $1 million guaranteed, further solidifying his roster spot even if he manages to lose out on the backup job.

July 10, 2019 10:02 PM EST

Trevor Siemian: Will back up Darnold

Siemian has agreed to terms with the Jets, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: The 2015 seventh-rounder gives the Jets a backup with 24 NFL starts (with Denver in 2016 and 2017) under his belt. Per Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger, Siemian's one-year contract could be worth as much as $3 million, including incentives. With Sam Darnold entrenched as New York's starter, Siemian will only be called on in during garbage time or in the event of an injury.

March 20, 2019 1:08 PM EST

Trevor Siemian: Meeting with Jets

Siemian will visits with the Jets on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: It was reported Monday that the Vikings were working to re-sign Siemian, but he apparently still wants to check out his options in free agency. The 27-year-old did not see the field as Kirk Cousins' backup in 2018.

March 19, 2019 8:10 PM EST

Trevor Siemian: Vikings Aiming to Re-sign

The Vikings are working to re-sign Siemian, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports

Analysis: Head coach Mike Zimmer has noted his desire to have a veteran quarterback as the main backup to Kirk Cousins. Last season, Siemian made $1.9 million as the No. 2 quarterback and did not log a snap all season. The Vikings also have Kyle Sloter on the roster, but his inexperience could be reason for concern.
