The Denver Broncos (still) don’t have a franchise quarterback, even after investing in Paxton Lynch with a first round pick. With that in mind, current Broncos linebacker and Super Bowl winner Brandon Marshall shed a bit of light on what he believes the team will do at the position.

Marshall appeared on NFL Network’s Up To The Minute Live (h/t and provided this foreshadowing with regard to John Elway’s decision.

“In my opinion, we’ve already drafted a quarterback, first round a couple years ago. So we’ve tried that. I think he’s going to get a free-agent quarterback. I think he’s going to go spend some money and fix the position, you know, because it’s kind of a toss-up with these rookie quarterbacks. You never know. But the only thing about getting a free-agent quarterback is some guys will have to go. I hope everybody gets to stay, but that’s just the business.”

It would not be a shock to see Denver go after a veteran rather than pursuing another draft pick, but Marshall went on to say that the Broncos played against “a guy in Week 16 that was pretty good.” That is a direct reference to Washington’s Kirk Cousins, who is set to hit the market, and that would be an intriguing partnership in a number of ways.

Obviously, it would take interest on both sides and, for now, we don’t know if that exists. Still, Cousins in a Broncos uniform would be quite interesting and that is something to monitor in the future.
