Golden Nuggets: Eugene Monroe, and some crappy quarterbacks

New, comments

San Francisco 49ers links for Thursday, June 16, 2016.

Good morning! A majority of the NFL is working through minicamp this week, while the San Francisco 49ers and other teams with a new coach are off into their offseason. The most notable news to pop up on Wednesday was the Baltimore Ravens' decision to release left tackle Eugene Monroe. The Ravens reportedly were trying to work out a trade with the New York Giants, but nothing came of it. There are rumors the Giants and Seattle Seahawks are two of the teams that might make a run at Monroe in free agency.

In other random league news, the New York Jets are looking at backup quarterback options if they do not re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick. Head coach Todd Bowles told the media the team is considering their options. Geno Smith is currently No. 1 on the depth chart, and then it's Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg after him. It is no surprise the Jets are looking for additional options.

Speaking of quarterbacks, the Denver Broncos are seriously looking at both Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian as their most likely starter. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Paxton Lynch is No. 3 on the depth chart, and Sanchez and Siemian are "looking each other in the eye" for the starting job. I suppose they can figure something out with that, but does anybody think the Broncos offense will find consistent success with either of them starting? They do have some intriguing skill position players, but Sanchez or Siemian? Really?
