No, Mark Sanchez isn’t a guarantee to be the opening day starter for the Denver Broncos.

Despite their attempts, a trade for Colin Kaepernick might not actually work. And if not, according to, the backup plan would be to find a way to get Josh McCown from the Browns.

The Broncos would need Kaepernick to take a pay cut in order to land in Denver, and the likelihood of that happening isn’t high as of now. With Robert Griffin III on the roster and a quarterback likely being taken at No. 2 overall, the Browns can afford to cut McCown, or see what the trade market would bring in for his services.

McCown threw for 12 touchdowns and four interceptions last season with the Browns. also clarified that no, the Broncos aren’t interested in bringing in Johnny Manziel, despite conflicting reports stating so on Thursday.
