After Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract to play for the Houston Texans, featuring a $37 million guarantee (Denver offered him four years for $64 million, with $30 million guaranteed), it became clear that fans had underestimated how pissed off he was to be benched in favor of Peyton Manning in the last game of the 2015-2016 season — and to be stuck watching the run to the Super Bowl on the bench.
Either that or he really needed that extra $7 million — especially since he'll be collecting it in Texas, which has no state income tax.
