Kubiak: Broncos not interested in Foles

Asked on 104.7 The Fan if the Broncos have interest in free agent QB Nick Foles, head coach Gary Kubiak indicated he's happy with his current trio of quarterbacks. "We've been set, we know which direction we're heading and it's time to go compete," he said.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Staff Writer 

Broncos will have their first full team practice of training camp at 9:30 a.m. Mountain time. There were fans in line already at 6:30 a.m., but the fields look ready and it will be Mark Sanchez who will get the first work at quarterback with the starters as he, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will divide the practice snaps evenly overall. Coach Gary Kubiak said he would have no timetable in camp to make the decision on a starting quarterback and he said the depth chart at the position could change "day to day."
