  Broncos | Two more sign Reserve/Futures deals    Wed Feb 10, 05:56 PM

Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs and TE Nick Kasa signed Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Footballguys view: We think Ronnie Hillman moves on in free agency. That means Bibbs could get a shot to move up the depth chart for the Broncos. He's a good runner with a proven nose for the end zone. Dynasty owners should be all over the young runner in a Kubiak system.

  Broncos | Jordan Taylor signs Reserve/Futures deal    Wed Feb 10, 05:52 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Taylor signed a Reserve/Futures deal Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Footballguys view: Taylor has good size and leaping ability. He's faster than defenders think, and Taylor could be used effectively in the red zone. In super deep dynasty leagues we have a lot of spots saved for Taylor.

  Broncos | Release Jace Davis    Wed Feb 10, 05:23 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jace Davis was released Wednesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: Davis has been on three teams (Ravens, Texans, Broncos) during his brief time in the NFL after coming into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Colorado in 2014. He's big and physical, but perhaps Davis just isn't fast enough to make it in the NFL.

  Broncos | No deadline for Peyton Manning    Wed Feb 10, 12:56 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has 'no deadline' for making a retirement decision, general manager John Elway said Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Footballguys view: There's no deadline....except for March 9th, the start of the new league year. We feel Manning is done in Denver...where he retires or not. Manning would have to pass a physical about a week before the start of the new league year if he wants to return to Denver. With all his body has been through, there's no guarantee that would happen. It seems like the Broncos are ready to move on, likely with Brock Osweiler as their starter.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning decision important    Tue Feb 9, 02:20 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning still has one year remaining on the contract he signed in 2012. His $19 million base salary becomes guaranteed on March 9, and the deal counts $21.5 million against Denver's salary cap. The Broncos' available cap space will be impacted greatly by his decision.

Footballguys view: Manning doesn't need to simply retire to get off the books for the Broncos. Per the structure of his contract, Manning will need to pass a complete physical about a week before that early-March deadline. If he fails the physical, then his contract is void. We feel that Manning is done in Denver...whether he retires or not is up in the air.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware plans to return    Mon Feb 8, 11:25 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware said Monday, Feb. 8, that he intends to continue playing. He is entering the final year of his contract. 'I got a lot of gas in the tank,' Ware said. '(Von Miller) was the one that added the gas to the fire for me, so that's why I'm playing the way I'm playing right now. I don't think about retiring.'

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. With Ware and Von Miller rushing the passer, the Broncos will maintain their status as the best defense in the league. Entering the final year of his deal with the Broncos, Ware has a $11.6 million cap number.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels considering retirement    Mon Feb 8, 07:58 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels has admitted that he will think about retirement after winning Super Bowl 50. 'Of course, of course. That's definitely an option,' Daniels told USA TODAY Sports. 'But I'm a man of my word, I signed a three-year deal, so I'd like to keep playing. I feel good enough as long as I can get some work done on my 33-year-old knees.' He has no more meniscus in his left knee, but his right knee caused him more pain during the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: We think Daniels will continue playing, but his role with the Broncos could change in 2016. The team loves second-year pro Jeff Heuerman, and he may take over as the top tight end for the Broncos in 2016.

  Broncos | Similarities between Elway, Manning    Mon Feb 8, 04:31 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and general manager John Elway were both drafted first overall by the Baltimore Colts/Indianapolis Colts and they both won 14 playoff games and two Super Bowls.

Footballguys view: Elway didn't want to play for the Irsay family, so he forced a trade to the Broncos. Manning did play for the Colts, then some feel he was stabbed in the back and cut by Colts owner Jim Irsay after missing the 2011 season with a serious neck injury. Perhaps he should have followed Elway from the start. We have a feeling Manning will go into the Hall of Fame as a Colt--regardless of how things ended in Indy.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning not rushing decision    Mon Feb 8, 12:48 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will not rush to make a decision about retirement after winning Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers, but he said 'I'll be at peace, whichever way it goes.' Manning's mother, Olivia, said she would like Peyton to retire and go out on top.

Footballguys view: Manning doesn't need to rush his decision. We'd guess that he goes ahead and calls it a career. The storybook ending with a Super Bowl championship might be too much for him to pass up. However, he played hurt this year and may want to give it another go (unlikely to be in Denver) in 2016. Earlier reports have indicated the Rams would be interested in Manning if he wants to continue playing. Stay tuned, we may not have a decision for a couple of weeks.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning quiet in Super Bowl win    Sun Feb 7, 11:15 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and an interception in a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: The Broncos aren't built around Manning anymore. The defense is the heart of the team, and that side of the ball came through in a big way against the Panthers. Manning didn't have to do much as the defense carried him to victory. We expect him to retire and go out on top.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas caps rough postseason    Sun Feb 7, 10:53 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught one pass for eight yards in a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: Nobody really knows what's going on with Thomas. There's plenty of speculation, but there's no production coming from the team's highest-paid receiver. The Broncos should have a new QB for the 2016 season (if Manning retires), and we'll have to see if Thomas can turn it around.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas checked by doctors    Sun Feb 7, 07:55 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (undisclosed) was checked out on the sidelines by doctors during Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers, but he was able to return to the game.

Footballguys view: Thomas didn't do much in the game despite being targeted six times by Peyton Manning. He ended the game with only one catch for eight yards. Thomas struggled at times this year...we'll see if he can turn it around next season (likely with a new quarterback).

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson starting    Sun Feb 7, 05:56 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be the starting running back against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Footballguys view: Anderson began the season as the starter, but a toe/ankle injury in Week 1 slowed him down and he lost his job to Ronnie Hillman. It's the best move for the Broncos to put the ball into the hands of Anderson instead.

  Broncos | Von Miller expected to receive tag    Sun Feb 7, 01:16 PM

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Von Miller likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason if the two sides are not able to agree on a long-term contract, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This has been the expected move by the Broncos for some time. It became even more evident when they extended the contract of DE Derek Wolfe back in mid-January. With the franchise tag, the Broncos will have until July 15th to work out a new long-term deal that could pay Miller well over $100 million.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning coming back?    Sat Feb 6, 09:26 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's former coach and current Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator, Clyde Christensen, isn't 'buying' the idea that the Super Bowl will be Manning's last game. 'I know how much he loves doing what he does,' Christensen said. 'He sometimes forgets and still gives me projects and forgets that he has a coach there. I still get a glimpse of how much this guy enjoys football like he does, enjoys the quarterback position like he does and I wouldn't count on him bowing out too early.'

Footballguys view: We're going to politely disagree with Christensen here. Manning's body isn't the same as it used to be, and he's wearing down with age...just like all the greats do. If Manning doesn't feel like he can compete at a high level, then he'll likely hang up his cleats for good.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning struggles over middle    Fri Feb 5, 05:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw 168 passes inside the numbers this season and was intercepted 10 times, resulting in a league-high 5.95% interception rate on such throws. The interception percentage ranks as the sixth-worst mark over the last 10 seasons.

Footballguys view: Kurt Coleman had seven interceptions this year for the Panthers and he could be poised to pick another one or two from Manning on Sunday.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders won't face Josh Norman    Fri Feb 5, 12:53 PM

Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman said he doesn't expect to line up at all against Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders in Super Bowl 50. Norman is expected to cover Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas instead.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a better matchup for Norman because of his uncanny ability to win at the catch point. Thomas has been struggling with drops lately, and Norman's disruption and true plays on the ball in flight will make it even harder to contend. Sanders is better at running crisp routes and creating separation, and he's likely to be the cornerstone of the Broncos passing offense on Sunday.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning changing teams?    Fri Feb 5, 12:14 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning knows he likely won't be back with the Broncos if he decides to play in 2016, according to Archie Manning.

Footballguys view: Manning could land in Los Angeles with the Rams or perhaps the Browns if he does decide to play, but the poetic justice of ending his career with a Super Bowl start and the steep decline in his play this year likely means Sunday will be his last in the NFL as a player. The Broncos could still re-sign Brock Osweiler despite turning away from him in the playoffs.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning looking good    Thu Feb 4, 08:46 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is looking as good as he has all season and threw several deep passes during practice Thursday, Feb. 4, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: After missing most of the second half of the season with this foot injury, Manning has looked a little better throwing the ball. He'll need to be near the top of his game playing against an opportunistic Panthers defense in Super Bowl 50.

  Broncos | Arm not an issue for Peyton Manning     Thu Feb 4, 03:06 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has drawn much criticism for his declining arm strength, but at least one teammate doesn't see it that way. WR Emmanuel Sanders believes most of Manning's issues have been a result of the foot injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the season.

Footballguys view: He can still get Sanders the ball so we understand his support. Still it's clear Manning doesn't quite have the arm strength - or accuracy - of his youth. His foot injury is a factor as well. He'll need time to throw of course, so the offensive line needs to play an incredible game.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning has struggled deep    Wed Feb 3, 02:01 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning ranked 33rd out of 35 quarterbacks this year with 27.5% accuracy on his passes that traveled 20 yards or more downfield, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: You don't need advanced stats to know that...just watch Manning this season. His arm strength isn't great (but it's not as bad as some think), but it's his long accuracy that really suffers. Against the Panthers in Super Bowl 50, Manning should keep many passes close to the line of scrimmage.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning has time for decision    Wed Feb 3, 12:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be given plenty of time to make a decision on his future following Super Bowl 50, according to general manager John Elway. 'He's got plenty of time, whatever time he needs. I think it's never going to be a quick decision. You don't want it to be. It's one that's going to change his life ... and it's always a hard decision,' Elway said, 'so we'll give him plenty of time.'

Footballguys view: Plenty of time indeed, but Manning does have to pass a physical before the start of the new league year in early March. Manning's body is crumbling as we speak, so we'd be shocked to see him return for another year.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning to need hip replacement    Wed Feb 3, 12:05 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (hip) said he's been told he'll need a hip replacement surgery 'down the road' and that he'll try to handle any potential issues with his neck and back in the future.

Footballguys view: Well, that's just something that happens with an older player. Hip surgery would be a major procedure and one that could keep him out of action for a while. With age and injuries piling up, we just don't see Manning playing after Super Bowl 50.

Footballguys view: Murphy is still a part of the team, but he was sent back to Denver due to this incident.

  Broncos | Brock Osweiler expected to start next year    Tue Feb 2, 07:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is expected to be the Broncos starting quarterback next season if they can sign him to an extension, even if QB Peyton Manning decides that Super Bowl 50 isn't his final game. Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said Monday, Feb. 1, that Osweiler has done everything to put himself in a position to start for Denver next year. President and general manager John Elway said he's excited about Osweiler and is 'hoping to get something done with Brock this offseason.' Osweiler can become a free agent March 9.

Footballguys view: Earlier reports indicate that Osweiler is looking for around $12 million annually and a short-term deal. That number might be a little high, but the Broncos are one of the best teams when it comes to salary-cap gymnastics. They might be able to get something done with Osweiler before the start of the new league year.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning dinking and dunking    Tue Feb 2, 05:39 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning targeted 62% of his passes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage during the regular season, and he connected on 69.9% of those throws with four touchdowns and nine interceptions. During the playoffs, 63% of his throws are of the short variety, with 35% of his throws between 10 and 19 yards, which was up from 24% during the regular season. Manning has thrown 20 of his 24 pass attempts at intermediate range to the right or middle of the field during the playoffs.

Footballguys view: Whatever works, right? Manning's passing chart shows a lot of throws close to the line of scrimmage. However, he's in the top 10 of air-yards-per-attempt average this season. Manning will get rid of the ball quickly against the Panthers, and it's up to the weapons like Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas to make something happen after the catch.

Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward (ankle) and FS Darian Stewart (knee) will both practice Wednesday, Feb. 3, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Ward and Stewart are two critical players for the Broncos defense. They'll have to stay disciplined when asked to cover against Cam Newton and the high-powered Panthers offense. Ward may even be asked to "spy" Newton from time to time.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning talks arm strength    Tue Feb 2, 12:26 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning conceded that his arm isn't as strong as it used to be entering Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. 'My arm is what it is,' Manning said. 'Honestly, my having a little time off to heal my foot helped some of the other parts. ... My arm feels OK. My arm has not been the same since I was injured four years ago. ... If I could throw left-handed it would be a lot easier. ... It's just different than it was. ... It's got a few yards on it, miles on it, however you want to say it.'

Footballguys view: The arm strength talk is overblown. Manning has never had a rocket arm, and he certainly won't now. It's interesting to note that Manning ranks 9th this year in air-yards-per-attempt average (9.15 yards). However, he's among the lowest in the league on completion percentage of passes that travel over 20 yards. Manning has more arm strength than some think, but his accuracy is a bit shoddy when asked to throw long.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning struggles in Super Bowl    Mon Feb 1, 07:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has thrown three of his four interceptions in Super Bowl play when targeting wide receivers as opposed to compiling almost as many yards per attempt when throwing at his tight ends and running backs in the big game.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning expected to retire    Mon Feb 1, 06:56 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is expected to retire after Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. 'The reality is he let the cat out of the bag a little bit,' NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said. 'I also know he has told close friends that he expects this to be his last game as well.'

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be surprised to see Manning hang up his cleats after Super Bowl 50. We'll see if Manning can go out the same way that Broncos GM John Elway did--as a champion. Manning may not announce a retirement after the game..win or lose. He's likely to take some time before making that decision public.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning as thrown an interception on 5.1% of his pass attempts this season, which is a career high for him and the most among qualified quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: Manning has struggled with picks this season, but since coming back from his plantar fascia injury Manning has recorded zero interceptions in two games.

  Broncos | Denver running game has been producing    Wed Jan 27, 07:27 PM

The Denver Broncos have averaged 29.9 rushing attempts and 128.0 rushing yards (eight touchdowns) in their last nine games with RBs C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman. The Broncos are unbeaten when they record at least 30 rushes and 130-plus rushing yards in a game this season. Anderson has been the more productive runner in a featured role.

Footballguys view: Anderson has been playing backup to Hillman for most of the season. He began the year as the starter, but ankle/toe injuries slowed him down and cost him the starting job. When Anderson gets 14 or more carries this season, the Broncos are undefeated. Facing a tough Panthers defense in Super Bowl 50, the game plan should include plenty of Anderson.
