  Chargers | Receivers work out    Tue Oct 1, 10:06 AM

The San Diego Chargers worked out free-agent WRs David Nelson (Browns), Austin Collie (Colts), Lavelle Hawkins (49ers), Derek Hagan (Buccaneers) and Matt Willis (Lions).

Footballguys view: There's no word on if any of these guys will be signed by the Chargers. They may just be updating their emergency list at the WR position. Willis does have experience with Mike McCoy dating back to their time together with the Denver Broncos.

  Lions | Sign Matt Willis    Tue Jun 4, 04:32 PM

The Detroit Lions signed WR Matt Willis (Broncos) Tuesday, June 4. Terms of the contract were disclosed.

Footballguys view: Willis is a special teams player but offers little as a wide receiver. The Lions are looking for more competition behind Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson.

Footballguys view: Getting Kuper back is huge for the Broncos. We regard him as one of the best in the league at his position (Guard). Kuper can help protect QB Peyton Manning better than his backup Manny Ramirez did over the first month of the season.

  Broncos | Matt Willis re-signs    Tue Apr 17, 01:57 AM

The Denver Broncos re-signed restricted free-agent WR Matt Willis Monday, April 16, to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

Footballguys view: Willis will find it difficult to get playing time as the fifth or sixth WR on the roster. The Broncos just added veteran Brandon Stokley to the roster, and signed free agent Jason Hill and Andre 'Bubba' Caldwell earlier this year. Willis will have to make an impression on special teams if he wants to make the roster.

  Broncos | Eddie Royal held without a reception    Sun Dec 18, 10:24 PM

Denver Broncos WR Eddie Royal was targeted twice in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, and he did not record any receptions. WRs Eric Decker and Matt Willis weren't much better, posting just one grab each with two targets. WR Demaryius Thomas is the receiver of choice for QB Tim Tebow lately.

Footballguys view: That's two big weeks in a row for Thomas, who has to get strong consideration next week against the Patriots.

  Broncos | Brandon Lloyd leads receiving corps    Tue Sep 13, 02:19 AM

Denver Broncos WR Brandon Lloyd posted team-highs with six receptions and 89 yards in the Week 1 loss Monday, Sept. 12, against the Oakland Raiders. WR Eddie Royal checked in with two grabs for 33 yards, and WR Matt Willis added a six-yard catch.

Footballguys view: Orton only has eyes for Lloyd. Money Lloyd can make plays but he attracts a lot of attention from the defense.

  Broncos | Brandon Stokley on the bubble?    Fri Sep 3, 10:49 AM

Denver Broncos WR Brandon Stokley could be on the team's roster bubble, according to Lindsay H. Jones and Mike Klis, of The Denver Post. The Broncos will likely keep six receivers, and five players seem to have jobs locked up, including WRs Jabar Gaffney, Eddie Royal, Brandon Lloyd, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. Stokley and WR Matt Willis could be battling for the final spot.

Footballguys view: Brandon Stokley could certainly be released by the Broncos, but he won't be out of a job for long. We wouldn't be surprised to see a team like the Redskins give Stokley a call if he's released.

Denver Broncos rookie QB Tim Tebow got off to a bad start Thursday, Sept. 2, reports The Associated Press. Tebow fumbled his first snap and threw an interception. He found a rhythm during the second quarter and finished the game hitting 12 of 16 passes for 167 yards and one touchdown. Tebow rushed four times for 21 yards. WR Matt Willis was his favorite target, as the two connected five times for 122 yards and the score.

  Broncos | Willis signed to active roster    Sat Jan 2, 04:03 PM

The Denver Broncos have announced they have signed practice squad WR Matt Willis to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Willis was called up to the active roster because the Broncos will be very short handed at the receiver position on Sunday. Brandon Marshall has already been declared inactive because of a coach's decision. Eddie Royal is likely out (or at the very least limited) because of an injury. Tight end Tony Scheffler joins Marshall on the inactive list. That leaves Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Stokley, Brandon Lloyd, and Matt Willis as the receivers available for the Broncos as they face the Chiefs at home on Sunday.

  Broncos | Willis could be brought up from practice squad    Fri Jan 1, 10:04 PM

Denver Broncos WR Matt Willis will be brought up from the team's practice squad if WR Eddie Royal (head, neck) is unable to play Week 17.

Footballguys view: Willis made some plays during training camp, but shouldn't be counted on for much production on Sunday.
