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