Has Any Quarterback Been Benched As Much As Brock Osweiler?

BRB examines the history of Osweiler’s last two years in the NFL.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
No matter what, he’s still rich.

I don’t ask the question that forms the title of this post to be mean. I ask it because after reading that the Broncos have decided to make yet another change at quarterback, I am genuinely curious.

Consider the following:

So if I did the math correctly, Brock Osweiler was benched twice by the Broncos (in two different seasons, in two separate tours of duty, no less), once by the Texans, and once by the Browns, all in less than two years. That’s five four times.

That has to be a record, doesn’t it? If you can think of another quarterback who’s seen that kind of action up and down the depth chart, please share with the class in the Comments.
