  Broncos | Denver signs three players    Wed Jan 17, 04:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Kenny Bell, DL DeShawn Williams and OT Andreas Knappe were signed to Reserve/Future contracts Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Bell is a good blocking receiver with athleticism and a Matt Waldman favorite, but he hasn't been able to put it together long enough to stick on a roster for the long haul after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 draft by Tampa Bay.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas' spot in jeopardy?    Fri Jan 12, 09:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas could be asked to restructure his contract or be cut, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 Sports, because of a provision that allows Denver to void the final two years of his contract if his $4 million option bonus is not picked up by the end of the league year on March 14.

Footballguys view: We don't think Thomas is going anywhere. With $15 million in dead money, the Broncos will likely restructure his contract before the 2018 season. Thomas is a big part of what the Broncos want to do, and he should get his numbers back on track with the expected upgrade (Kirk Cousins?) at the quarterback position the Broncos will make.

  Broncos | Denver linked to Baker Mayfield    Fri Jan 12, 09:18 PM

The Denver Broncos coaching staff requested that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield be placed on their team for the upcoming Senior Bowl, according to Senior Bowl director Phil Savage.

Footballguys view: There's buzz about Mayfield being their favorite quarterback in the 2018 NFL draft. Mayfield has a ton of heart and is an accurate quarterback but benefited from many wide open throws thanks to the run/pass options in the Sooners offense. The 2017 Heisman Trophy winner is considered an early second- or late first-round pick at this time.

  Broncos | Denver a landing spot for Tyrod Taylor?    Fri Jan 12, 01:24 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is due a $6 million roster bonus in March and $10 million in base salary for 2018. There is growing belief he will not be a Bill in 2018, and the Denver Broncos could be a landing spot for him, due to the connection with Broncos official Gary Kubiak, according to The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala.

Footballguys view: Kubiak is taking on a larger role in the front office in 2018. The Broncos are in dire need of a quarterback with the failure of Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian. We expect them to make a big push for Kirk Cousins, but if they don't get him then Taylor would be an option. They would likely draft a quarterback with their no5 overall pick if Taylor was added in free agency.

  Broncos | Denver hires Sean Kugler    Thu Jan 4, 12:57 AM

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos hired Sean Kugler (UTEP) as their offensive line coach on Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: The line needs some help, so a new face could be just the ticket. Regardless of who is under center in 2018, the Broncos need to do a better job of protecting him.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib a release candidate?    Wed Jan 3, 02:58 PM

Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib acknowledged there is a chance he will not return to the team next season. Talib has two years remaining on the five-year contract he signed with the Broncos in 2014 and carries a salary cap hit of $12 million for next season but only $1 million in "dead money,' according to the Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala.

Footballguys view: The salary is inflated, but Talib is still capable of playing at a high level. The Broncos might want to free up $11 million in cap space by releasing Talib so they can have more dollars to go after a free agent QB like Kirk Cousins. Releasing Talib would also allow Bradley Roby to step into the no2 role opposite Chris Harris.

  Broncos | Jordan Taylor need surgery on both hips    Wed Jan 3, 01:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Taylor (hip) is expected to undergo surgery on both hips 'soon,' according to league sources.

Footballguys view: It's amazing that Taylor was able to perform with this hip problem. We're monitoring him in deep dynasty leagues. Taylor has plenty of speed and can make acrobatic catches seem routine.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian set for another surgery    Tue Jan 2, 08:32 PM

Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will undergo surgery to repair a damaged posterior capsule in his left shoulder Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Siemian is tough, but he's injury prone and can't make it through a season without sustaining multiple injuries. Last year he had three injuries as the team's starter (both shoulders and a foot injury) and this year he got benched then came back in to start a few weeks later and got hurt. The hits are taking their toll and Siemian is not standing up against the pressure. Siemian underwent an unrelated left shoulder surgery at the end of the 2016 season as well. His future with the team is up in the air.

  Broncos | Denver signs four to futures deals    Mon Jan 1, 07:20 PM

The Denver Broncos signed WR River Cracraft, TE Brian Parker, WR Tim Patrick and Jordan Leslie to Reserve/Future contracts Monday, Jan. 1. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Cracraft is a dangerous slot receiver who can get open on underneath routes. Parker is an athletic tight end on a team desperate for help at the position. Patrick is a crazy athlete who reminds some of a young Jordan Taylor. All are only worth monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Broncos | Eric Studesville let go     Mon Jan 1, 04:21 PM

Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville was fired Monday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Studesville has endured through many head coaching changes in Denver (Josh McDaniels, John Fox, Gary Kubiak, Vance Joseph) and he was the team's interim head coach in 2010 after McDaniels was fired. He wants the chance to be an OC but will likely have to latch on with another team as a RBs coach before he gets that shot. Studesville has coached many 1,000 yard rushers during his pro career, including guys like Marshawn Lynch (Bills) and most recently C.J. Anderson (Broncos).

  Broncos | Three Denver coaches fired    Mon Jan 1, 04:17 PM

Denver Broncos special teams coordinator Brock Olivo, wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert and offensive line coach Jeff Davidson were fired Monday, Jan. 1, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Broncos struggled on offense and their special teams unit was one of the worst in the league. Olivo may find a D1 school interested in adding him as a head coach. Davidson had close ties to former Broncos OC Mike McCoy and may land wherever McCoy does in the future. Tolbert has been an NFL WRs coach since 2003 with stops in Arizona and Carolina before his time with the Broncos (2011-2017), and he should be able to find employment elsewhere in the league.

  Broncos | Vance Joseph will return    Mon Jan 1, 12:16 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph will return for the 2018 season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There were rumblings that the Broncos were ready to move on from Joseph after just one year, but something changed in their outlook. The players lobbied to keep Joseph according to rumblings around the team, and the Broncos may have not been able to get a coach they'd consider an upgrade (Jay Gruden, etc) over Joseph. We'll see if they can fix the offense by finding a quarterback and upgrading the blockers in front of him. That would go a long way to getting the Broncos back in the playoff conversation.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas' streak ends    Sun Dec 31, 10:57 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had 83 catches for 949 yards in 2017, finishing with fewer than 90 receptions and less than 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011.

Footballguys view: The streak is over and it's no surprise given the ridiculous carousel the Broncos quarterback position was in 2017. The team started three different quarterbacks (Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch) and multiple occasions and couldn't find a rhythm offensively with all the changes. Thomas has over $15 million in dead money remaining on his deal, so expect the Broncos to ask him to restructure in order to get more cap space. They should make a big push for Kirk Cousins in free agency.

  Broncos | Week 17 game recap for Broncos    Sun Dec 31, 08:51 PM

RB C.J. Anderson posted 61 yards on 18 rushes, while RB De'Angelo Henderson ran five times for 15 yards while adding a 29-yard touchdown reception.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch not fully healthy    Fri Dec 29, 12:34 AM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is still bothered by his ankle, and the injury will be a 'factor' in Week 17, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.

Footballguys view: That probably means the team will run Lynch less by design and lower his fantasy ceiling. The Broncos offense is unreliable in Week 17 with Lynch at the helm.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch practices in full    Wed Dec 27, 06:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Footballguys view: Lynch is going to start in Week 17 against the Chiefs. There's no telling how he's going to perform because he has not impressed behind the scenes enough to win the job with multiple opportunities in two seasons. The 2016 first-round pick is looking like a bust, but the Broncos want to take one final look to see if there's any availability there.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders not practicing    Wed Dec 27, 03:42 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Sanders plays on Sunday against the Chiefs. His ankle has been bothering him for weeks, and even when he does play he doesn't look like his normal self. His future with the team is up in the air after a down season with the Broncos.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles frustrated with playing time    Tue Dec 26, 09:13 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles told Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post on Tuesday, Dec. 26, that he feels 'like I never got a chance to show people that I can carry the load,' Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said the team has not considered releasing Charles, who averaged about 15 snaps over the first 14 games of the season.

Footballguys view: Charles has not been used much at all by the Broncos. He's been active every week but one for the team, earning a cool $78K every week as a bonus. Charles proved he could be healthy enough to play in a limited fashion, but he wants to get more time and more touches. The Broncos have no intent of releasing Charles at this time.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas close to milestone    Tue Dec 26, 05:53 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas needs 108 receiving yards in Week 17 to reach 1,000 yards for the sixth straight season. He would be the second Broncos wide receiver to achieve the feat.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are likely to start QB Paxton Lynch against the Chiefs on Sunday. He should have a mandate to get Thomas the ball as much as possible. Keep this in mind if considering Thomas in your Week 17 championships.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders day-to-day    Tue Dec 26, 12:47 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is still nursing a sore ankle and remains day-to-day.

Footballguys view: Sanders missed Week 16 due to this ankle injury, and he hasn't been the same since injuring this ankle against the Raiders a few weeks ago. There's a chance the team could shut down Sanders for the season finale against the Chiefs.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch likely to start Week 17    Tue Dec 26, 12:18 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is tentatively expected to start at home Week 17 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Lynch, a first-round pick in 2016, has failed to win the starting job each of the last two years. He's only started three games in his short pro career, and Lynch has struggled in each of those games. The team needs to get a longer look at him, but even if he plays well against the Chiefs on Sunday we see the Broncos moving on. They're already scouting the top quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL draft and could make a big push for a veteran quarterback like Kirk Cousins.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch to play in Week 17    Mon Dec 25, 04:45 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) will receive playing time in Week 17, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: He'll play and he should start for the Broncos in their season finale against the Chiefs. Lynch has not earned the opportunity to start for the Broncos in two seasons. His work ethic and desire are in question, in addition to a couple of injuries (shoulder, ankle) that have prevented him from being full strength. Even if Lynch plays well in Week 17, we doubt he is an option for the Broncos to start in 2018. Expect the team to make a strong move for a quarterback (either through the draft or free agency) this offseason.

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (shoulder) said he has been playing with a torn right rotator cuff since Week 4.

  Broncos | Cody Latimer ruled out    Sat Dec 23, 05:20 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer (thigh) did not travel with the team for their Week 16 game and has been ruled out.

Footballguys view: Latimer missed time earlier this year with a slight knee injury. It's unfortunate for the young WR as he was coming on a bit with Brock Osweiler at quarterback.
