T.J. Ward doesn’t sound too confident in Mark Sanchez as the Broncos QB

The Denver Broncos are in glaring need of a quarterback after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler jumped ship to the Houston Texans.

The defending champs did sign journeyman Mark Sanchez, who spent the past two years with the Eagles. But the Broncos are still looking to add more depth to the position.

That need isn’t lost on Broncos safety T.J. Ward, who was on "NFL Now" on Wednesday and talked about Denver’s QB predicament with Maurice Jones-Drew.

"Whenever you don’t have a quarterback, it’s going to impact a team," Ward said. "But defensively, we have one mindset: No one scores. So (if) we continue to do that, continue to prepare and dominate on the defensive side, then we’ll be all right. But we got to find someone back there. Right now I think we have Mark Sanchez signed and, um, he … he has some experience in this league (laughs)."

Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

 Sanchez has struggled since finding some success early in his career with the Jets. He helped New York reach the AFC title game in 2009 and 2010 but has failed to replicate that success since.
