Brock Osweiler did not want to return to Broncos, did not like benching

Brock Osweiler

Brock Osweiler apparently wanted to move on from the Denver Broncos, not just because he was offered more money elsewhere, but maybe because he had mixed feelings about his former team.

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says Osweiler had some tough feelings towards the Broncos over them benching him late in the regular season in favor of Peyton Manning, who then led the team to a Super Bowl win:

The Broncos apparently could tell during negotiations that it seemed like Osweiler did not want to return to Denver.

Did Osweiler not want to return because they benched him or because other teams offered more money? I suppose it’s one and the same; both signal that the Broncos were not 100 percent sold on Osweiler. It’s understandable why he would want to go to a team that viewed him as their savior.
