Broncos open QB competition in earnest

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) If comfort is any factor in the Denver Broncos' "50-50" quarterback competition, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch were, appropriately, tied after Day 1.

The QBs split the snaps Tuesday at new coach Vance Joseph's first minicamp practice. Both were sharp and steady during the 20-minute open period. Afterward, each of them displayed a confidence that wasn't as readily apparent last year when they were grappling behind Mark Sanchez.

With a year's head-start on Gary Kubiak's playbook, Siemian eventually beat out Sanchez and Siemian, who proved a slow study in adjusting from the "Air Raid" offense at Memphis to the run-based version of the West Coast offense.
