Big fan of Denver football? Then check out this list of Denver Broncos quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Denver Broncos history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.

In the 2017-18 NFL season, the current Denver Broncos starting QBs and backup QBs are Chad Kelly, Paxton Lynch, Kyle Sloter, and Trevor Siemian.
