  Broncos | Trevor Siemian has chance to start    Tue May 31, 12:05 AM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is considered a sleeper for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. 'I think Trevor has a maturity to him. He's kind of the sleeper, I would say. Trevor knows the offense. He's very comfortable and can throw the ball, too,' Kubiak said Monday, May 30. 'We've also seen him make big plays in the preseason games under the lights. I wouldn't sleep on Trevor to win the job, either.'

  Broncos | Possible figures for Paxton Lynch    Sat May 28, 03:54 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch's four-year rookie contract is expected to earn him around $9.5 million. It was reported earlier that Lynch's agent believes a deal will be completed soon.

Footballguys view: There's no such thing as a rookie holdout anymore. The rookie salary cap means all rookies are slotted in order of the way they were picked. Last year's 26th overall pick, Ravens WR Breshad Perriman, signed a four-year $8.7 million deal with a $4.6 million signing bonus. Lynch will get a bump for being a QB and because the cap has gone up slightly. He's the last of the Broncos rookie draft class to sign, but there's not going to be any hangup. Lynch is competing with Mark Sanchez to be the team's starting QB in 2016.

  Broncos | Denver has two No. 3 WR candidates    Fri May 27, 05:22 PM

Denver Broncos WRs Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler are expected to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp. Latimer has performed well during offseason workouts during the last few seasons but has not recorded great numbers during the regular season. Fowler had a decent role in the passing game in 2015 but injuries and inconsistency dropped him on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: It's a make-or-break year for Latimer. He's flashed in practice, but bad chemistry with Peyton Manning led him to be unproductive over the last two years with the Broncos. With only 8 catches in his pro career (after the Broncos moved up in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft to get him), Latimer needs to start producing as more than just a special teams player. Fowler may take his spot behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. The former Michigan State WR plays larger than his size, is physical at the point of the catch and fearless running routes over the middle.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall to have finger reexamined    Fri May 27, 04:11 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (finger) said he is scheduled to have his finger reexamined Tuesday, May 31.

Footballguys view: He has been participating in team meetings and is expected to participate in practice in the near future.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall at workouts without contract    Fri May 27, 04:04 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (finger) is participating in offseason workouts even though he has not signed a contract with the team at this point. He signed a waiver to allow him to participate in the organized team activities. He does have an offer on the table worth $2.533 million since he was tendered as a restricted free agent, but he likely will not receive a long-term deal until the team signs LB Von Miller.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have until July 15th to work out a long-term deal with Miller. They should do that with a contract that makes Miller the highest-paid defensive player in the league. After that is done, Marshall should get a long-term deal from the Broncos.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware's injury a concern    Thu May 26, 06:10 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware's (back) linger back issues are concerning to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. 'Sure, it's a concern because he was out several games last year,' Phillips said.

  Broncos | Denver QB competition open    Thu May 26, 03:43 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday, May 25, that competition is open at quarterback in organized team activities. However, QB Mark Sanchez's experience gives him the clear edge over QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch despite not having started a season opener since 2012. Sanchez must perform in training camp to hold the other two young QBs off. If he wins the job, Sanchez must limit turnovers during the season to keep the job.

Footballguys view: As we knew it would be. We think that Sanchez will get the nod, as Lynch has a longer way to go and Siemian, while familiar with the offense, isn't more than a third-string quarterback. The weapons that are there for whomever gets the nod are impressive, with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on the outside to throw to. That said, we don't know we'd like anyone here as more than a QB3 as the Broncos are going to be one of the most run-heavy teams in the league.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall had finger surgery    Thu May 26, 03:00 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (finger) had surgery on his right index finger, which explains why he's been limited in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: The surgery isn't slowing down contract negotiations. We'll see Von Miller get a new long-term deal from the Broncos before we see Marshall get a new (and well-deserved) contract. The team put a second-round tender on the talented linebacker earlier this year, but he has not signed it. Marshall is at OTAs on good faith (and with a waiver to participate).

  Broncos | Virgil Green had surgery    Tue May 24, 03:40 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (finger) had surgery on his finger and will miss most of organized team activities, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: An interesting tidbit revealed today after practice. Green has been an underused receiver to this point in his pro career. A seventh-round pick in 2011, Green had a career-high 12 catches in 2015. This surgery is going to give second-year TE Jeff Heuerman a chance to emerge in the TE-friendly Kubiak system.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian takes first-team reps    Tue May 24, 03:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian started with the first-team offense for the first day of organized team activities. Head coach Gary Kubiak said the quarterback competition is open but praised all of the quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: Siemian has more experience under Kubiak than does rookie Paxton Lynch or veteran Mark Sanchez. The second-year pro has a big arm, but he struggles with accuracy. The team is quickly grooming Lynch to take over as the starter. If he plays up to his potential, Siemian is merely a backup-caliber QB.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware doesn't practice    Tue May 24, 02:33 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware (back) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. He could return Wednesday, May 25, though.

Footballguys view: The team is just taking a precautionary stance with the future Hall of Fame pass-rusher. His back injury forced him out of the lineup for a few games last year, so the Broncos want to be careful. Fantasy owners need to note we'll see a larger role for LBs Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett this year as Ware becomes more of a part-time player.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker close to 100%    Tue May 24, 01:26 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) has been doing almost all of the drills the other running backs are doing in organized team activities, and it looks like he's close to 100% in his recovery from a knee injury in college.

Footballguys view: Booker said earlier this year that he's about 90 percent healthy. While he wants to 'take someone's job' Booker is more likely to be a three-down-back-in-waiting for the Broncos in 2016. If C.J. Anderson stays healthy, he's likely to get the largest workload of his football career with Booker playing a reserve role--and competing for touches with Ronnie Hillman.

  Broncos | Mark Sanchez participating in drills    Tue May 24, 01:23 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is doing just about everything the other quarterbacks are doing in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Sanchez isn't taking snaps under center, however.

Footballguys view: Sanchez can't take snaps from under center right now as he's recovering from thumb surgery on his non-throwing hand. He's competing for the starting job in Denver and got off to a rough start at OTAs on Tuesday as his second pass of practice was intercepted by LB Corey Nelson.

  Broncos | Adam Gotsis should be ready for camp    Mon May 23, 10:28 PM

Denver Broncos DT Adam Gotsis (knee) should be ready to participate once training camp begins. Gotsis is expected to be part of the defensive line rotation in 2016.

Footballguys view: The team didn't replace DE Malik Jackson (Jaguars) in the draft as Gotsis is more like Derek Wolfe. It was a reach to take Gotsis in the second round, but the team is high on him and believes he can be a force as a pass-rusher. We'll see what his knee is like the closer we get to training camp.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch may sign soon    Sat May 21, 10:33 AM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has not signed his rookie contract at this point, but agent Leigh Steinberg said he plans to reach an agreement with the Broncos quickly.

Footballguys view: Rookie holdouts are a thing of the past. Ever since the rookie wage scale was introduced, teams just slot their rookie salaries based on what the players before and the players behind got. Lynch was the 26th-overall pick, but he will have a bit of a QB premium price. Either way, he's going to give the Broncos a value for five years at the position...especially if he's the franchise QB they think he is.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker gunning for starting job    Fri May 20, 10:46 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker said he wants to become one of the best running backs in franchise history, and he plans to 'take someone's job' this year.

Footballguys view: We love Booker's confidence, but there's no way he takes someone's job...unless that someone (starter C.J. Anderson) gets hurt. Some are trying to paint a picture of RBBC in Denver in 2016. The Broncos are painting a different picture..with their checkbook. Anderson got a $5 million bonus earlier this year, and they're going to feed him the rock as much as possible. Booker is talented, but he's a three-down-back-in-waiting with the Broncos.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker out for OTAs    Fri May 20, 09:18 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) will not participate in the first round of OTAs that begins Tuesday, May 24, as he continues to recover from a torn meniscus, but he is expected to be ready before the start of the season.

Footballguys view: Booker is a three-down-back-in-waiting for the Broncos. They are going to give C.J. Anderson the largest workload he can handle after paying him a $5 million bonus earlier this year. The rookie is going to have to wait his turn behind Anderson. We like Booker because of his determination, power and the fact he's a fantastic receiver out of the backfield. Any fantasy owner who adds Anderson should be adding Booker as a must-handcuff player.

  Broncos | Mark Sanchez hopeful for OTAs    Wed May 18, 03:52 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is hopeful he'll be able to participate when organized team activities begin next week. Sanchez is currently recovering from surgery on his left thumb and he is encouraged by the progress of the recovery.

Footballguys view: This could give the Broncos a nice look at Paxton Lynch to see how he can handle the offense, but we expect Sanchez to be ready long before camp and there's every chance he'll win the starting role. The last time Sanchez had a good defense and a solid run game he went to back to back AFC Championships. Even if the Broncos defense regresses, they'll keep games close and the weapons he has to pass to are better than anything he's had. However, know the Broncos want Lynch to start at some point this year. If Sanchez slips and Lynch is ready, the team will turn things over to the rook.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian to see more reps    Mon May 16, 04:38 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian will see all the snaps in organized team activities with QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) expected to miss the start of workouts after having surgery on his left thumb.

Footballguys view: Lynch is the player to highlight here. The team wanted to see if he'd be ready to assume the starting job in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers. The Broncos have not been shy about mentioning how they're going to push Lynch to see if he can handle a starter's workload this year. This injury to Sanchez opens a huge door for the rookie passer.

  Broncos | Mark Sanchez underwent surgery    Mon May 16, 03:21 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) injured his left thumb in the weight room Thursday, May 12, and underwent surgery Saturday, May 14. He will miss a few organized team activities, according to Mike Kils of 9news.com.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are already microwaving the learning curve of rookie first-round pick Paxton Lynch. This injury to Sanchez is only going to give the rookie more exposure and reps in practice. The team has Trevor Siemian too, but he's just a big arm and clipboard holder. Perhaps while Sanchez is out the Broncos will sign a veteran camp arm.

  Broncos | Virgil Green wants to prove himself    Mon May 16, 02:47 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green said he wants to prove in training camp that he can be an every-down tight end. It was reported earlier that Green could have a bigger role in 2016.

Footballguys view: Green is a better receiver than his career-high 12 receptions in 2016 shows. He was a reliable receiver for Colin Kaepernick in college at Nevada, but the Broncos have turned him into a strong blocking TE instead. Now, Green may be the lead TE for the Broncos in 2016 with only second-year TE Jeff Heuerman as his main competition. From a fantasy lens, we could see Green as a low-end TE2 if his production matches what Owen Daniels was able to get last year.

  Broncos | Bigger role for Virgil Green?    Mon May 16, 02:08 PM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green could see more opportunities in 2016 after a career-high 12 catches last season, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

Footballguys view: Good! The Broncos finally need to use Green as a receiver after utilizing him for years as a blocker. Green is an underrated receiver who could be featured in the Gary Kubiak TE-friendly offense.

  Broncos | Dekoda Watson signs    Mon May 16, 11:50 AM

Free-agent LB Dekoda Watson (Patriots) signed an undisclosed deal with the Denver Broncos Monday, May 16.

Footballguys view: The Broncos add some special teams help here. Although Watson is an outside linebacker, he may be best inside for the Broncos 3-4 defense.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker signs deal    Fri May 13, 05:26 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker, the team's fourth-round draft pick, signed a four-year contract Friday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Booker is not going to be in a RBBC with C.J. Anderson. The Broncos paid Anderson like a lead back, and that's the role he's going to get in 2016. However, Booker does a lot of the same things that Anderson does and we classify the rookie as a three-down-back-in-waiting with the Broncos.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson the lead back    Wed May 11, 08:35 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will receive the bulk of the carries in 2016 with RB Ronnie Hillman providing a change of pace. RB Devontae Booker will have a chance to play on third downs if he can pick up pass protection.

Footballguys view: There has been a misconception about the workload in Denver after the Broncos selected Booker in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft. Booker is clearly a three-down-back-in-waiting, but Anderson is their bellcow. He proved last year in the postseason that he could carry a heavy workload, and Anderson received a $5 million bonus back in March as part of his new contract. The language of the NFL is money, and the Broncos have said (with their dollars) that Anderson is clearly the lead back.

  Broncos | Claim Toben Opurum    Tue May 10, 05:49 PM

Free-agent RB Toben Opurum (Saints) was claimed off waivers by the Denver Broncos Tuesday, May 10.

Footballguys view: Opurum was a linebacker in college at Kansas, but the Chiefs converted him to a fullback in 2013 when he signed as an undrafted free agent. The fullback is a dying position, but the Gary Kubiak system uses one quite a bit as a lead blocker. Opurum will compete with rookie sixth-round pick Andy Janovich (Nebraska) for the much-needed fullback spot on the Broncos roster.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker could make impact    Tue May 10, 01:06 AM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) missed the last part of the 2015 season with a knee injury, but the team expects him to be ready by June. He is the three-down back in waiting in Denver, and he has good ability as a receiver and third-down blocker.

Footballguys view: Booker is the "in case of emergency break glass" back for the Broncos. We don't see him playing in a RBBC with C.J. Anderson. The Broncos paid Anderson like a lead back this offseason, and he could get the biggest workload of his football career in 2016. However, if Anderson gets banged up again then Booker could take over and do a lot of things that Anderson does (power inside, pass-blocker, good receiver).

  Broncos | Adam Gotsis day-to-day    Sat May 7, 02:32 PM

Denver Broncos rookie DT Adam Gotsis (knee) is considered day-to-day while recovering from a knee injury. He does not have a set return date and has not participated at rookie camp.

Footballguys view: The team does not see this kid as a project. The Australian native was ranked as a 4th- or 5th-round pick, but the Broncos jumped to add him at the end of the second round. He's strong, has a high motor and is still learning American football. Defensive line coach Bill Kollar (one of the best in the league) stood on the table for the Broncos to add Gotsis...and GM John Elway obliged.

  Broncos | John Elway confident in Paxton Lynch    Fri May 6, 07:18 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch could become a starting quarterback a lot sooner than most people believe, according to general manager John Elway. 'Is that going to happen tomorrow? Probably not, but you never know when it can happen,' Elway said. 'We think he's going to be ready quicker than a lot of people think.' Elway said the team selected Lynch because of his athletic ability and strong arm.

Footballguys view: Elway is laying the groundwork for Lynch to start at some point this year. Mark Sanchez isn't a high bar to overcome, and the Gary Kubiak offense is highly structured. The defense and running game will do the heavy lifting for this team, and the Broncos have one of the best wide receiver duos in the league, so Lynch would be inheriting a situation similar to the one Ben Roethlisberger had as a rookie with the Steelers in 2004, when he lost the AFC title game to the Patriots.

  Broncos | Coach excited about Paxton Lynch    Fri May 6, 06:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is a player that head coach Gary Kubiak is excited about, but Kubiak said Lynch has a long way to go before he can be a starting quarterback. Kubiak indicated Lynch looked a little overwhelmed during practice Friday, May 6, but believes Lynch will pick things up quickly.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch working under center    Fri May 6, 05:07 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch took all of his snaps under center during practice Friday, May 6. Lynch played in a spread offense over the last few seasons but has been working under center since his 2015 season at Memphis ended. He said he is familiar with the offense since it is similar to what Memphis used when he was a freshman, but the terminology is more complicated.

Footballguys view: There was a time that the absence of snaps under center in college was a potential red flag in a quarterback prospect, but now it is not as big of an issue with shotgun becoming more prevalent in the NFL.

  Broncos | Von Miller wants to stick around    Thu May 5, 12:40 PM

Denver Broncos franchise free-agent CB Von Miller said he wants to sign a long-term contract that will keep him in Denver for the rest of his career. 'I'm going to be here in Denver no matter what,' Miller said. 'The contract is going to take care of itself. I'm going to be a Denver Bronco for life.' However, Miller isn't expected to show up for workouts this week.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have a proven history of signing their franchise-tagged players to new long-term deals before the July 15th deadline. Miller is set to earn a contract that makes him the highest paid defensive player in the league, and we think Denver will have no problem paying that price. However, it's worth noting that deals get done at deadlines. We're not expecting any movement on this contract situation until July.

  Broncos | Richard Gordon waived    Wed May 4, 03:19 PM

  Broncos | Mark Sanchez staying focused    Mon May 2, 04:57 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still views himself as a starting quarterback and believes Denver drafting QB Paxton Lynch was affirmation of his starting status. 'Absolutely, that's the message I've received,' Sanchez said. 'I'm thrilled with the opportunity.' Sanchez hasn't let Lynch or any potential trades change his focus. 'I just kind of learned with time, who knows what's going to happen and who cares? What are you supposed to do? Meet your teammates, develop a relationship with them, learn the playbook, get involved in the community, that's it, those three things.'

Footballguys view: Lynch is a project, and he may not be ready to start by the beginning of the regular season. We think Sanchez has a good chance to start the year for the Broncos at the top of the depth chart.

  Broncos | Devontae Booker to play early?    Sun May 1, 09:56 PM

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker should push for playing time as a rookie, according to beat writer Jeff Legwold.

Footballguys view: This will be something fantasy owners need to watch for in 2016. C.J. Anderson signed a big money deal with the Broncos this offseason, and he's clearly the lead back. Booker plays a lot like Anderson and at least gives them a quality backup. He's good enough at everything to work his way onto the field when Anderson needs a breather. Anderson also has failed to stay healthy for a full season, so Booker will certainly be an important handcuff.

  Broncos | Denver takes Devontae Booker     Sat Apr 30, 02:12 PM

Former Utah RB Devontae Booker was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 136th pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: This is still CJ Anderson's job, but Booker could be the future and his patient, tough running style could make him a three-down back down the road or if Anderson starts off slowly this season.


  Broncos | No Brian Hoyer for Denver     Fri Apr 29, 07:11 PM

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.

Footballguys view: There's no point in bringing Hoyer in. Sanchez or Lynch will start and the other will be the backup while Siemian is the emergency parachute. We think Sanchez starts the year but it's not insane to think Lynch gets the starting gig if he can get up to speed.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch to compete for starting gig    Thu Apr 28, 11:48 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will compete with QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian for the starting job, according to executive vice president John Elway.

Footballguys view: Footballguys' own Cecil Lammey is fully wired into the Broncos beat and expects Sanchez to start the season and for Lynch to potentially take over around Week 10 once the brutal first half of the season is done. Lynch is a great fit for Gary Kubiak's offense, so it's really just a matter of getting him up to speed.

  Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue big-name QB    Thu Apr 28, 11:28 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.

Footballguys view: Since they got their quarterback, this isn't a shock. They got what they wanted out of Thursday, and part of that was not having to spend money or picks for a retread.

The Denver Broncos acquired the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for the 31st overall pick and a third-round pick, 94th overall. The Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch with the pick.

Footballguys view: A reasonable cost to get the quarterback of the future. Elway waited to pull the trade off until he could get the best value and essentially one pick in the third round is great value for Lynch.

  Broncos | Denver selects Paxton Lynch    Thu Apr 28, 11:01 PM

The Denver Broncos selected Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28. The Broncos traded up with the Seattle Seahawks for the pick.

Footballguys view: Footballguys Cecil Lammey and Andrew Garda are in Chicago covering the draft and both of them felt that if Lynch dropped past 20, the Broncos would pull the trigger. Elway waited as long as he could, but when the Chiefs were closing in, he jumped up and grabbed the guy they wanted all along. Lynch is a great fit for Kubiak, as he combines mobility with an ability to read and react to defenses making smart decisions. He may not start this season, but he will look very good in this offense when he gets his shot.

That's just the type of mindset I have.'

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is an option the Denver Broncos are moving away from because the Broncos don't believe the Eagles are willing to trade him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: We don't know if this is the Eagles maneuvering for more value in a trade or if they have talked Bradford off a ledge. They want to sit their rookie quarterback (likely Carson Wentz by all accounts) for a year and they paid Bradford for that. We think Bradford starts the season in Eagles green.
