New Texans QB Brock Osweiler Surprised at Comments Made by John Elway

Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler responded Monday to Broncos general manager John Elway’s comments that he was surprised that the quarterback seemed “bent out of shape” to be replaced by Peyton Manning in last season’s regular-season finale against the Chargers, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Although Osweiler answered when asked about Elway’s comments, he made it clear he was more interested in talking about his current team.

“The only thing I would say is what kind of competitor wouldn’t want to play in that situation?” Osweiler said. “Outside of that, I think I’ve answered all of those questions, we’re now in August, we just had a great training camp practice and I’m excited to play the 49ers coming up.”

Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans in March, choosing that over a smaller offer from the Broncos. Last season, Osweiler went 5-2 in seven starts for the Broncos, throwing for 1,967 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions.

“I can understand that he didn’t want to sit down and have Peyton come back in that San Diego game, but it wasn’t the fact that Brock was playing bad,” Elway told the Denver Post. “We needed a change of something.

“So I was a little surprised just how he seemed to be a little bent out of shape about that. But he had an opportunity to make a tremendous amount of money in Houston, and for us, it just didn’t fit.”
