Brock Osweiler is no longer on the unemployment line as he signed with his old team in the Denver Broncos.

Considering how the two parted just over a year ago, the reconciliation seems a bit peculiar.

Osweiler took way more money to head to Houston and after being traded one year later to Cleveland and being released by the Browns this week, many didn't see the Broncos as his landing spot.

The familiarity with the offense and organization made sense though for John Elway and the Broncos as they tried to find a backup to Trevor Siemian as Paxton Lynch will be out for at least a month with a shoulder injury.

The Browns are on the hook for $15.25 million while the Broncos will pay Osweiler the vet minimum of $775,000, totaling a $16 million salary for 2017 for the Denver backup.

During his seven starts for the Broncos in 2015, Osweiler went 5-2 in relief of Peyton Manning.
