2015 Outlook: Can Osweiler play in the NFL? Nobody really knows: He's been trapped behind Peyton Manning for three years. Osweiler has learned at the foot of the master, but it's hard to imagine the Broncos' offense wouldn't hiccup without its Hall of Fame helmsman. The reason to remember Osweiler's name in 2015, of course, is that Manning is 39 and the quad injury that wrecked his season late last year could be the tip of the iceberg. We think Manning will be fine. But if his end is nigh, at least Osweiler would audition throwing to the likes of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
