  Broncos | Denver hires Wade Harman    Thu Jan 17, 02:19 PM

Former Atlanta Falcons tight ends coach Wade Harman was hired by the Denver Broncos for the same position Thursday, Jan. 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Harman worked with new Broncos OC Rich Scangarello during their time with the Falcons. He comes in to take over a group that lacks healthy impact players. Jake Butt is a fine all-purpose tight end but he's coming off yet another knee injury (the third of his football career). Jeff Heuerman was the leading tight end last season but he's set to be a free agent in 2019. Needless to say, Harman has a lot of work to do.

  Broncos | Bill Musgrave out in Denver    Thu Jan 17, 12:23 PM

Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave will not be returning to the Denver Broncos' staff.

Footballguys view: Musgrave couldn't get the best out of QB Case Keenum and now he finds himself looking for work after one season as the Broncos OC. He's been around the league forever, has a good reputation and shouldn't find it difficult to find another gig.

  Broncos | Denver brings on Rich Scangarello    Wed Jan 16, 06:57 PM

Updating a previous report, former San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello was hired by the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Jan. 16as their new offensive coordinator, according to a source. Scangarello will call the plays.

Footballguys view: Scangarello has a background as a quarterback coach, but should still be committed to the run. He discovered Nick Mullens while he was on the 49ers staff, so the Broncos could pursue Mullens in a trade. He was a Kyle Shanahan disciple before he worked for Shanahan in San Francisco, having worked under him in Atlanta previously. He also modeled his offense after Shanahan's while he was a college offensive coordinator.

  Broncos | Rich Scangarello nearing deal with Denver    Wed Jan 16, 11:05 AM

San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello is meeting with the Denver Broncos again Wednesday, Jan. 16, and barring a snag in talks, he's expected to be named the offensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: Scangerello came up under Kyle Shanahan, so the return of a Shanahan-type system to Denver won't be foreign to Broncos fans. He's unproven as a playcaller and might lean on new Broncos OL coach (and former head coach) Mike Munchak. Scangarello will work to get the most out of the offense while new Broncos head coach Vic Fangio should make the defense quite intimidating. The hire of Scangarello has to be seen as good news for both Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman as the Broncos should have a run-first/run-heavy offense.

  Broncos | Ed Donatell back in Denver    Tue Jan 15, 07:59 PM

Former Chicago Bears defensive backs coach Ed Donatell has been hired by the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Jan. 15, as their new defensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: Donatell follows new Broncos head coach Vic Fangio to the Mile High City. He coached with the Broncos before, back in 2010 as the DBs coach. Now, Donatell runs the whole defense...something he's done before, most recently with Washington back in 2009. Fangio should be the defensive playcaller.

  Broncos | Brandon Staley hired by Denver    Tue Jan 15, 11:01 AM

Chicago Bears assistant Brandon Staley was hired by the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Jan. 15, as linebackers coach.

Footballguys view: Staley worked under new Broncos head coach Vic Fangio with the Bears and the transition should go smoothly for him. Staley spent the last two years as the linebackers coach with the Bears and now gets to work with great pass rushers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.

  Broncos | Jake Butt eyeing training camp    Sun Jan 13, 11:37 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jake Butt (knee) said he will be fully healthy by training camp at the latest. 'I'm progressing and I have goals,' Butt said. 'I want to at least be doing something during OTAs. I feel really good.'

Footballguys view: Butt now has three major knee injuries (two in college, one in the pros) that he's come back from. He's a fine 'Y' tight end when healthy but he has struggled to stay healthy in two seasons with the Broncos. Dynasty GMs know the medium reward of Butt staying healthy also comes with the likelihood that he might never be the player he could've been due to these knee problems.

  Broncos | Denver interested in Antonio Brown?    Sat Jan 12, 01:59 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he is placed on the trade block this offseason.

Footballguys view: That would be an expensive move for any team interested...and the Broncos seem like an odd fit. First, they have Emmanuel Sanders as their no.1 receiver and he's in the final year of his contract. Second, they have second-year pros Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton as up-and-coming playmakers. To get Brown it would take a second-round pick (maybe more) and Denver doesn't have the most cap space at this time. Stay tuned.

  Broncos | Case Keenum still the starter    Thu Jan 10, 10:02 PM

Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum is still the starting quarterback for the time being, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: It's interesting to note that Fangio said 'right now' Keenum is their quarterback. The Broncos need to upgrade the offense and try to find a franchise quarterback if at all possible. Keenum is under contract for one more year but there is no guarantee he stays with the Broncos in 2019.

  Broncos | Best yet to come for Von Miller?    Thu Jan 10, 09:49 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller can be 'one of the rare players' in the NFL, according to head coach Vic Fangio, and Fangio believes Miller can have the best season of his career in 2019.

  Broncos | Vic Fangio hired by Broncos    Wed Jan 9, 01:10 PM

Former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio agreed to a four-year deal to become the next head coach of the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Jan. 9, according to a source. The deal includes a fifth-year option and financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fangio is an old school coach with a no-nonsense attitude. He should work to make the Broncos defense (which has some key pieces) elite in 2019. Fangio is going to get a lot of (needed) help on the offense from new OC Gary Kubiak. In a high-powered AFC West, the Broncos are just trying to prove they can get back on track. They have missed the playoffs each of the last three years and just registered back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since the early 70s.

  Broncos | Two coaches vying for Denver job    Wed Jan 9, 08:30 AM

Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak are the two finalists for the Denver Broncos head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are not going with a youth movement at the head coaching position. While other teams are hiring inexperienced, young, offensive minded coaches it seems like the Broncos just want experience and expertise in one area. Any head coach that is hired by the Broncos is likely to have Gary Kubiak placed in some role on offense in 2019. We should hear about Denver's decision in the near future.

  Broncos | Chuck Pagano interviews with Denver    Wed Jan 2, 08:52 PM

Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano interviewed for the Denver Broncos' vacant head coaching position on Wednesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Pagano's Colts blew multiple fourth quarter leads in 2017 and he seemed bewildered by the trend. The league seems to be weighting head coaching experience heavily in their searches again.

  Broncos | Denver signs more players     Wed Jan 2, 02:44 PM

Denver Broncos WR Chad Hansen, DE Caushaud Lyons, RB Khalfani Muhammad and OG Austin Schlottmann were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Hansen was a fourth-round pick for the Jets in 2017 when he came out of Cal. He's a technician as a route runner and some in the scouting community compared his game to Allen Hurns. We'll monitor him in super deep dynasty formats and see if he can impress with his new team.

  Broncos | Denver signs six players    Wed Jan 2, 01:00 PM

The Denver Broncos signed WR Fred Brown, SS Shamarko Thomas, QB Garrett Grayson, OT Andreas Knappe, LB Alexander Johnson and CB Linden Stephens to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Brown was undrafted out of Mississippi State in 2017. The Rams decided to keep him around on a futures contract in 2018 but he did not make the final roster. The Broncos have a young group of wide receivers behind Emmanuel Sanders and we'll see if Brown can impress enough with his new team to earn a spot on the 53-man roster in the summer.

  Broncos | Vic Fangio to interview with Denver    Tue Jan 1, 10:39 AM

Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will interview with the Denver Broncos Monday, Jan. 7, for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: The Broncos tried the first-time head coach route with Vance Joseph but that failed and they might do that again with Fangio. Unlike Joseph, a one-year defensive coordinator, Fangio has years and years of being a coordinator but has yet to get a chance to be a head coach. The Broncos want Gary Kubiak to be their OC and perhaps having Fangio as their defensive minded head coach would do that.

  Broncos | DEN wants Mike Munchak interview    Mon Dec 31, 10:16 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak has been requested for an interview for the Denver Broncos' head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: The Broncos took a chance on a first-time head coach last time with Vance Joseph. They might want to go with a more experienced coach this time around. Munchak went 22-26 in three seasons with the Titans from 2011-13.

  Broncos | Brian Flores sought for DEN interview    Mon Dec 31, 09:36 AM

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Brian Flores has been requested for an interview by the Denver Broncos for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Flores has a few teams interested in interviewing him. He called plays for the first time in 2018 and the Patriots defense finished 7th in points allowed. We'll see if he can impress and get a job on the fast track to a head coaching gig.

  Broncos | Vance Joseph fired    Mon Dec 31, 09:35 AM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph was fired Monday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have now had back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1972...all under the watch of Joseph. The players played hard for Joseph but he was saddled with Case Keenum as his quarterback and little depth. The Broncos are now looking for their fourth head coach since 2011 (John Fox, Gary Kubiak, Vance Joseph) and may go to a more experienced coach. Joseph was a first-time head coach and went 5-11 and 6-10 in two seasons.

  Broncos | Multiple months for Phillip Lindsay    Wed Dec 26, 05:17 PM

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) will have three to four months of recovery following surgery on his injured wrist, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Lindsay should be ready for non-contact work during OTAs and minicamp. He was one of the few bright spots for the Broncos this year, going from sixth on the depth chart to being only the third 1,000-yard undrafted rookie rusher in NFL history. The Broncos will see what fellow rookie Royce Freeman can do as the team's starter against the Chargers in Week 17.

  Broncos | More on Phillip Lindsay    Wed Dec 26, 12:24 PM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) has torn ligaments around the scaphoid bone in his wrist, and it's a four-to-six-month injury. He could do non-contact drills in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Lindsay is not going to play in the season finale against the Chargers obviously, and this injury should prevent him from playing in the Pro Bowl. He was perhaps the lone bright spot for the Broncos offense in 2018, and we love his upside for the future. The Broncos should turn to fellow rookie Royce Freeman to be their starter against the Chargers on Sunday.

  Broncos | Phillip Lindsay 'faces lengthy recovery'    Tue Dec 25, 06:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is facing a 'lengthy recovery,' according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He is dealing with 'a possible scaphoid fracture along with ligament damage.'

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Broncos rookie sensation here. Lindsay is the first undrafted offensive rookie to be voted to the Pro Bowl and this wrist injury is likely to keep him from participating. Lindsay rushed for over 1,000 yards this year, only the third undrafted rookie to do that in NFL history. It's a lengthy recovery but one that should be healed up by the time training camp rolls around. There's a chance Lindsay would be available for spring OTA work as well.
