The famous American football quarterback signed a four-year freelance contract with the Houston Texans after the Broncos won the Super Bowl in 2016.

Brock Osweiler Biography – Age
Brock Alan Osweiler was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on November 22, 1990, and grew up with his parents, Kathy and John Osweiler, in Kalispell, Montana. His older brother Tanner also played college football in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) at Montana Tech in Butte. It is also known that her father John Osweiler received scholarship offers to play football. However, the man decided to join the military right after high school.
Brock was interested in both basketball and soccer. He blossomed in both fields and eventually even played for basketball teams of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). In 2006, he signed up to become a basketball player at Gonzaga University in Spokane, but as fate would have it, he ended up playing college football.
His professional career in football began when he began attending Arizona State University. Brock Osweiler was the first real newcomer to play a game for the Sun Devils since Jake Plummer in 1993. He played six games with a start in 2009 and 2010.
Because of his great performance, Osweiler was ranked sixth-best quarterback in the 2012 NFL Draft and one of the 57 best quarterbacks in the second selection round of this season by the Denver Broncos. In 2013, Osweiler was relieved from the quarterback game and stationed in the line. As the tallest member of the team at 2.10 meters, it was an attempt to prevent the New England Patriots from scoring the decisive field goal.
In the 2014 season, Osweiler scored his first touchdown in his career against the Raiders, on 28 December. His team won against the San Francisco 49ers and the San Diego Chargers in week 7 and week 10. In the first game, Osweiler tried an incomplete pass, in the second game, he managed 2 of 5 passes over 13 yards.
In the 2015 season, Osweiler suffered his first defeat after three consecutive wins. His team lost the game of week 14 in a 15-12 defeat against the Oakland Raiders. He ended the season with 170 finishes on 275 attempts (61.8%) over 1,967 yards; 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions with a quarterback rating of 86.4.
On March 9, 2016, he signed a 4-year contract worth $72 million ($37 million guaranteed) to play for the Houston Texans. However, in what was considered the most creative deal in NFL history, Osweiler was traded to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the selection of the Texans in the sixth round in 2017 and the selection in the second round in 2018 in exchange for the selection in the fourth round of 2017 of the Browns to the Cleveland Browns.
Following his release by the Browns, Brock Osweiler signed a one-year contract with the Denver Broncos on September 2, 2017, to cover replacement quarterback Paxton Lynch, who suffered a shoulder injury. The contract was worth the league minimum of $775,000, so the Browns had to pay the balance of the guaranteed $15.2 million owed to him.
With the Browns currently playing for the Miami Dolphins, the future looks bright for the Flathead High School graduate.
