13Brock Osweiler

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Brock Osweiler was the perfect soldier for the Denver Broncos until it was time for free agency. Due to Peyton Manning's ineffectiveness and old age, Osweiler started seven games for the Broncos in 2015. He helped the team earn the no. 1 seed in the AFC. But when it was

time for the playoffs to start, the coaching staff went with the veteran. Manning could barely throw the ball. Yet, when the dust settled, the Broncos were Super Bowl champions. Osweiler has a ring, but he wasn't the starter. It's also the reason why he's not in Denver anymore.

Osweiler decided to blaze a new trail for himself with the starved-quarterback Houston Texans. For years, the Texans have struggled at the QB position and managed to make the postseason. Osweiler believes he's the missing link. In March, he signed a four-year, $72 million deal. That's not bad for a quarterback with 11 career touchdown passes. Now that he's gotten paid, he'd better be hungry to bring Houston a Super Bowl.
