DENVER — It’s been nearly three years since Brandon Weeden left town.
Now the Broncos’ No. 1 quarterback is finally back.
“I love Kansas City,” Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said Monday.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how the season unfolds there.”
Bowlen is in his sixth season as the Broncos owner, and he’s never been a fan of Weeden’s play.
But the Broncos aren’t done yet.
“Brandon is a very, very good quarterback,” Bowlen added.
“We’ll see what happens.
He’s a guy who can throw the ball, can run, can do some of the things he did in Denver last year.”
Bells said the Broncos hope Weeden can be a long-term starter, even though it’s been four years since he played.
He was signed by the team after the 2014 season.
Weeden has been a big part of the Broncos success this season.
He threw for 3,879 yards and 21 touchdowns, the most ever by a quarterback in a season with at least 50 attempts.
The Broncos also scored at least 17 points in three straight games, including a 17-point victory over the New England Patriots.
He also led the Broncos to a 27-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Weisman had three touchdown passes against the Vikings and a 1-yard rushing touchdown on the Broncos last week.
Bowlen called Weisman “a guy who, at that age, is very capable.”
The Broncos’ offense has been moving the ball more than usual this season, which Bowlen believes is because of Weisman.
Weisman had a career-high 893 yards passing last season and completed 73.4 percent of his passes.
The Broncos (8-3) will play at Kansas City (7-5) on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET (Fox).
