Deshaun Watson is recovering from shoulder surgery and Dorian Thompson-Robinson from a hip injury, and both are expected to be limited in organized team activities and mandatory minicamp in the next month if they participate at all. They ended last season on injured reserve.

Jameis Winston and Tyler Huntley are the other quarterbacks.

Sirmon, who will turn 25 on May 30, appeared in nine games last season, completing 56.4 percent for 1,355 yards and eight touchdowns.

He was a top prospect coming out of high school in Washington and signed with the University of Washington. He threw four passes in two years with the Huskies before transferring to Central Michigan. After a year there, he went to Northern Colorado for 2022 and ’23.
