Brohm to get first crack -
"I think it’s a pretty big advantage going into OTAs and the next minicamps to get this time under my belt," said Brohm. "You see the offense develop, you get to run the plays and see how they unfold and how coach likes to call them and what he wants with different coverages. It’s five extra days that you get to go out there and compete and be in the meeting room with the coaches and see what they want out of the quarterbacks. It’s definitely an advantage."
