  Broncos | Paxton Lynch surged late in offseason    Sun Jun 25, 12:01 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch 'played with greater fearlessness' and made significant strides over the final two weeks of the team's offseason program, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

Footballguys view: Lynch is tall (6'7") has a rocket arm and the athleticism to be a threat as a runner. He's competing with last year's starter Trevor Siemian for the main job with the Broncos in 2017. The competition begins in training camp and Lynch was surging before the break. Lynch wants to go deep, and he was connecting on long passes with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders often in mincamp. He needs to be better when it comes to throwing with touch/timing on short routes if he wants to win the job.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly not a roster lock?    Fri Jun 23, 02:41 PM

Denver Broncos seventh-round QB Chad Kelly is not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster, according to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe, who believes Kelly may be placed on the Reserved/Injured list in 2017 in order to let him completely recover from wrist and knee surgeries.

Footballguys view: Kelly is not in the mix for the Broncos this year. Trevor siemian and Paxton Lynch will compete for the starting job in training camp. If Kelly is healthy next year he could potentially be in the competition for the starting job.

  Broncos | Adam Gotsis had knee procedure    Thu Jun 15, 07:41 PM

Denver Broncos DT Adam Gotsis (knee) underwent a knee scope Thursday, June 15, and will return for the first week of training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: The second-year defensive end was looking good in minicamp up to this point. Coming off an ACL injury that ended his college career at Georgia Tech, any sort of knee problem is a concern. He should be back by training camp, then we'll see if Gotsis can regain the momentum he was building this spring.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus signs tender    Wed Jun 14, 04:49 PM

Denver Broncos restricted free-agent PK Brandon McManus signed his one-year tender offer Wednesday, June 14, according to a source. He is scheduled to make $2.8 million in 2017.

  Broncos | No shoulder problems for Trevor Siemian    Tue Jun 13, 11:39 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) said he has not had any problems with his surgically repaired shoulder during practice.

Footballguys view: Siemian had two shoulder injuries last year and a foot injury that he played through mostly for 14 games. He's competing with 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the starting job in Denver. This Mike McCoy offense is full of completions, and the winner of the job could have low-end QB2 value for fantasy owners.

  Broncos | Two Broncos nursing injuries    Tue Jun 13, 03:13 PM

Denver Broncos DT Kyle Peko (foot) and TE A.J. Derby (hamstring) are dealing with injuries after the first day of minicamp.

Footballguys view: Derby looks to be a big piece of the Mike McCoy offense when healthy. He's likely the lead tight end for the Broncos and has been showing good chemistry with Paxton Lynch in practice. Derby is a sneaky TE3 with upside for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Broncos | No team drills for Jamaal Charles    Tue Jun 13, 02:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not participate in team drills during the Broncos' three-day minicamp. He will do some work with his helmet on, however.

Footballguys view: Charles has taken some handoffs during individual drills but that's it. He still thinks he can be 'the man' and Charles seems rather salty after the Chiefs let him go. If his knees hold up, we think Charles works best in a limited role as a change-of-pace back behind starter C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly still in cast    Mon Jun 12, 07:12 PM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly (wrist) still has a cast on his injured wrist but expects it to be removed later this week. Kelly is expected to be cleared to practice in August.

Footballguys view: Kelly is going to be the no3 QB behind Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian. Even if he's cleared to practice in August, the team might ease him back into action. He's still less than a year removed from a major knee injury, and the Ole Miss gunslinger is seen more as a long-term project for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch still developing    Sun Jun 11, 08:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch 'remains a work in progress' heading into minicamp, according to beat writer Mike Klis.

Footballguys view: Lynch isn't a finished product, but there have been signs that he's 'getting it' on the field ...and off it. He's got a big arm, is more athletic than some think and has a willingness to challenge a defense deep. Lynch needs to work on the boring stuff to become a quality starter. The 5-yard passes that he's errant on need to be cleaned up. He needs to stay on schedule as a passer from the pocket if he's truly going to play up to his potential. Lynch will compete in training camp for the starting job with Trevor Siemian.

  Broncos | Three Broncos linemen adding weight    Wed Jun 7, 06:14 PM

Denver Broncos DE Adam Gotsis and DE Derek Wolfe have each added 20 pounds this offseason, while DE Jared Crick has added 15 pounds and plans to add another five pounds. Crick said the linemen are adding weight because they were undersized last season.

Footballguys view: The Broncos run defense was their weakness last year. Bulking up in the front line will help counteract the natural inclination of opponents to tangle with the Denver defense on the ground instead of through the air.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian still besting Paxton Lynch    Mon Jun 5, 11:21 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has had 'more good days overall' than QB Paxton Lynch during organized team activity sessions, by 'all accounts.' Lynch, however, is coming off his best showing thus far in OTAs with his performance Monday, June 5.

Footballguys view: Lynch has never looked better in a Broncos practice, but for reasons different than what most think. He's already been showing a tendency to connect on deep passes and big 'long bomb' touchdowns. Lynch needs to get better working the short/underneath stuff, and that's what he did effectively on Monday. The 2016 first-round pick was in complete control on the same day that Siemian looked worse than ever before. Even UDFA Kyle Sloter had a better day than Siemian on Monday. That being said, this QB competition is far from being over. The real competition begins in August.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles takes part in drills    Mon Jun 5, 06:43 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) participated in some light drills with the running backs during organized team activities Monday, June 5.

Footballguys view: Charles was out there for 1-on-1 drills with the Broncos for the first time this offseason. The team is easing him back into action as he returns from the knee injury that bothered him each of the last two years. Charles feels he can still be "the man" but he's likely going to be the change-of-pace back for the Broncos behind C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly likely to miss workouts    Sun Jun 4, 04:11 PM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly (wrist) likely will not participate in organized team activities this week as well as the upcoming minicamp even though he will have the cast on his wrist removed Monday, June 5. Kelly will have to strengthen the wrist before he can return to the practice field.

Footballguys view: Kelly is unlikely to play this year for a couple of reasons. 1st) The injured wrist needs to heal, plus he's less than a year removed from a major knee injury. 2nd) The Broncos have Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch to compete for the starting job. Kelly may be a candidate for IR this season, and if neither Siemian or Lynch don't impress in 2017 we could see a door open for Kelly in 2018.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall feels rejuvenated     Sat Jun 3, 10:47 PM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall said he feels rejuvenated headed into the 2017 season, following an intense offseason regiment that included a diet change and barefoot workouts in the sand.

Footballguys view: Marshall just didn't look like himself last year with the Broncos. Since 2014, his per-game tackling has fallen from 8.1 to 6.9 to 4.5. In 2016, Marshall had only 52 tackles, with no sacks or turnovers, across 11 games. He's in the LB3/LB4 range in IDP leagues, but if healthy expect a bounce-back year.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly to have cast removed    Thu Jun 1, 11:16 PM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly (wrist) will have his cast removed Monday, June 5.

Footballguys view: Kelly is an intriguing prospect in dynasty leagues. He's a gunslinger with a skill set that is a mix of Andy Dalton and Jay Cutler. Kelly is third on the depth chart behind Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian. He's unlikely to climb the depth chart this year and may be put on PUP or IR depending on his injury.

  Broncos | No surgery for Shaquil Barrett    Wed May 31, 06:31 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shaquil Barrett (hip) will not need surgery on his injured hip but will miss the rest of the offseason workouts and is expected to miss at least a part of training camp, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Barrett is a rotational pass rusher for the Broncos. While he's out, guys like Vontarrius Dora will get a chance to showcase what he can do.

  Broncos | Adam Gotsis a 'new player'    Wed May 31, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos DE Adam Gotsis is noticeably trimmer, completely healthy after a 2015 ACL tear in college and looking good in the team's offseason workouts, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2016, Gotsis did next to nothing during his rookie season. He was still recovering from an ACL injury that ended his college career, but Gotsis is fully healthy now. He's larger, healthy and working to be a larger part of the team's rotation at DE opposite Derek Wolfe.

  Broncos | Jeff Heuerman not assured a roster spot    Tue May 30, 08:12 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman - a third-round pick in 2015 - is not assured a roster spot, according to general manager John Elway.

Footballguys view: Heuerman hasn't impressed on film since his 2013 season at Ohio State. Since then, he's been invisible on the field his last year for the Buckeyes and in two years with the Broncos. There's not a ton of talent at the TE position in Denver, so if Heuerman is ever going to do anything he'd better start now or find himself out of a job. A.J. Derby is his best competition for the primary pass-catching TE in Denver.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas misses OTAs    Tue May 30, 07:23 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (personal) missed organized team activities Tuesday, May 30, due to a personal issue, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Joseph expects Thomas to return to practice this week. WR Cody Latimer practiced with the first-team in Thomas's place.

Footballguys view: Thomas has looked great at OTAs this year. Back in the Mike McCoy offense, the Broncos are expecting a lot out of Thomas as their featured receiver. He showed good chemistry with Trevor Siemian last year, but his chemistry with Paxton Lynch seems improved from recent OTAs.

Denver Broncos LB Shaquil Barrett (hip) is dealing with a hip injury and will not participate in organized team activities.

  Broncos | Gary Barnidge speaks with Denver    Tue May 30, 12:28 PM

Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) recently spoke with the Denver Broncos and did the same earlier with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has already reportedly visited the Buffalo Bills, according to Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Barnidge would be an upgrade for the Broncos. They have Mike McCoy running the show on offense, and the two have a history together from their days with the Panthers. Barnidge has a bit of interest and should find a home before the start of training camp.

  Broncos | Carlos Henderson picking up offense    Sat May 27, 11:38 PM

Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson is 'swimming' when it comes to learning the offensive schemes, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said Thursday, May 25.

Footballguys view: Henderson is an exciting rookie to add in dynasty leagues. He reminds some in the scouting community of Randall Cobb (Packers) with a dash of Hines Ward because of his aggressive run-after-the-catch ability. Henderson is the front-runner to win the no3 job behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

  Broncos | T.J. Ward could receive extension    Fri May 26, 05:31 PM

Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward has had preliminary talks with the Broncos about a contract extension.

Footballguys view: The Broncos already locked up FS Darian Stewart to a contract extension, but many felt Ward would play out 2017 and leave in free agency. The team drafted both Justin Simmons and Will Parks last year at safety, and both players have intriguing upside. If Ward takes a hometown discount (see Chris Harris, Derek Wolfe) then perhaps he could stay in Denver beyond 2017.

  Broncos | Denver inks Carlos Henderson    Fri May 26, 03:28 PM

Denver Broncos third-round pick WR Carlos Henderson (Louisiana Tech) signed his four-year rookie contract Friday, May 26. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We are excited about Henderson in dynasty leagues. Henderson is a tough, physical receiver who excels at running after the catch. Some in the scouting community have compared his game to Randall Cobb (Packers), and Henderson is an aggressive player who can win at the catch point. Henderson will work as the no3 WR for the Broncos behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. He's got little value in redraft leagues but the skill set to be a Pro Bowl player in dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas feels better than ever    Thu May 25, 05:29 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he's feeling the best he's felt in his entire career.

Footballguys view: Thomas was not himself last year as he struggled through hip problems and an injury he sustained on the first play in Week 1 of 2016. A healthy Thomas in a Mike McCoy offense crafted to help him be dominant, means the veteran could bounce back as a top-15 fantasy WR in 2017 (he was 18th in standard leagues last year).

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles ready by training camp?    Tue May 23, 04:34 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) hopes to be ready for action by training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Charles will rehabilitate and get back to good health during organized team activities.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are giving Charles the time he needs to get as close to full strength as he possibly can. When healthy (perhaps in training camp), Charles will compete with C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker for touches/snaps in the backfield. Charles could work in a RBBC behind Anderson, and he could at least be a pass-catching back for the team.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian works with first team    Tue May 23, 02:06 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian worked with the first-team offense on the first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 23.

Footballguys view: Siemian gets the nod to open things up, but he's going to split first-team reps with Paxton Lynch. There are 10 OTAs and five of them will feature Siemian starting as the first-team QB and five of them will feature Lynch at the top spot. The two will battle to and likely through training camp.

  Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17    Tue May 23, 12:36 AM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. 'You need two or three guys that can carry the load,' Joseph said. 'It is no longer a one-guy position. I'm excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be.'

Footballguys view: This is not news. The Broncos don't have a lead back as Anderson hasn't been able to stay healthy for a full 16 games. They'll use Charles (if healthy) as a change-of-pace back behind Anderson. Booker will be used as a spot runner and potential starter if Anderson is injured again. Anderson has the most fantasy value, and his current ADP is RB17 (4.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian still the favorite to start?    Sun May 21, 03:51 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian had little trouble holding off 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch last season, and 9News' Mike Klis would be 'surprised' if the quarterback competition plays out the same way this season.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate Lynch is picking up the Mike McCoy offense quickly and we think he's a much better fit for that (likely) shotgun-heavy system than he was working from under center with Gary Kubiak. Lynch has a big arm and can scramble when the play breaks down. Siemian is efficient and can work the underneath routes, but he needs to learn how/when to challenge a defense vertically. New head coach Vance Joseph says he doesn't mind if this QB competition goes all the way through training camp. He also said "decision making" would be the biggest factor in this decision...that edge right now has to go to Siemian due to his experience.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles not a lock for roster    Thu May 18, 09:09 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles has a 50 percent chance to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Mike Klis.

Footballguys view: Charles suffered a meniscus injury in the same right knee that had ACL surgery after a season-ending injury in 2015 and ended up having surgery on both knees after his 2016 ended. He should be ready for training camp, but how ready will that be? It feels like he's going to be behind the eight ball with CJ Anderson and Devontae Booker having plenty of time to get used to the offense. Charles hasn't really been great the last few seasons anyway and we think he's on the wrong side of his career and is likely destined for a minimal role in Denver.

  Broncos | Decision-making big for Denver quarterbacks    Thu May 18, 02:36 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will need to make good decisions in order to win the starting position, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'The guy who makes great decisions with the football, not turning the ball over, and the guy who lets his teammates play for him, that's the guy I want to lead our football team,' Joseph said. '[Decisions-making] is the biggest factor in this decision I'm going to make.'

Footballguys view: We think VP John Elway and Joseph would be leaning towards Lynch, but he has to prove he deserves the job. Both quarterbacks made some boneheaded plays last year and the Broncos cannot afford to waste another year with those same issues plaguing them. The other wild card is Chad Kelly. Mr Irrelevant 2017 may have more pure skill than either of the other quarterbacks, but he needs to prove he is healthy and be more poised and less 'Outlaw Country' off the field. Kelly is unlikely to be in the mix this year, but in 2018 he could make more of a push if Siemian/Lynch don't overly impress.

  Broncos | Carlos Henderson may be kick returner    Wed May 17, 03:48 PM

Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson is expected to receive the first opportunity to win the kick returner job, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold.

Footballguys view: Don't get too carried away but he's a little bit Randall Cobb, a little bit Steve Smith and maybe there's even a dash of Hines Ward to his game. If that doesn't get you excited, then nothing will. Henderson's got great potential as a returner, but the rookie from Louisiana Tech could carve out a role as the no.3 WR in Denver behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. He's fierce after the catch and has the speed to take the top off the defense. A former running back, Henderson can stack moves on top of moves with the rock in his hands.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly should be ready for camp    Sat May 13, 11:45 AM

Denver Broncos seventh-round QB Chad Kelly (wrist) should be 'totally cleared' for training camp in August, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Kelly is coming back from wrist surgery, a major knee injury suffered last year and a lingering hernia problem. He's the most talented "Mr. Irrelevant" ever selected in the NFL draft, but Kelly is not likely to be much of a factor this year. Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian will compete for the starting job in training camp. Kelly could get in the mix in 2018 if neither Lynch or Siemian show enough future potential this season.

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Footballguys view: Anderson has to be considered the frontrunner at this time. Charles has not been himself over the last two years, and he might be best suited as a change-of-pace back. Booker did struggle as a rookie but he led the team in rushing last year, and he was the Broncos third-leading receiver in 2016. We'll see this unfold in training camp.

Denver Broncos second-round DT Demarcus Walker signed his four-year rookie contract Friday, May 12. While the total value of the contract was undisclosed, his reported signing bonus is north of $1.8 million.

Footballguys view: Walker is a proven pass rusher from the inside of the defensive line. He's known as a snap-jumper, and he's a guy who doesn't want to come off the field. That wore him down at times in college at Florida State, but it shouldn't be a problem with the Broncos as he'll work as a rotational player.

  Broncos | Jake Butt signs    Fri May 12, 10:08 AM

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt, a fifth-round pick, signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Butt suffered a knee injury in Michigan's bowl game, and he might not be ready for the start of the regular season. There's a chance he won't be on the field for the Broncos until the midway point of the year. He's got long-term upside and is comparable to Jason Witten (Cowboys).

Denver Broncos CB Brendan Langley signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, May 11. The deal is worth #3.175 million and includes a $706,288 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Langley is a raw player, having only played cornerback for a few years. He was a wide receiver at Georgia, but then transferred to Lamar for a chance at more playing time. Langley is physical and athletic at the position, but he's joining one of the most jam packed secondaries in the league. He'll compete for the fourth corner spot behind Chris Harris, Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby.

Denver Broncos OT Garett Bolles signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, May 11. The deal is worth $11 million fully guaranteed and comes with a signing bonus of more than $6 million.

Footballguys view: The Broncos needed to amp up their offensive line, and Bolles has the potential to be a big help at left tackle. Bolles is athletic and can handle outside rushers. He needs to work on his inside post leg and holding up on power moves to his right. Now the Broncos just need to settle on a quarterback.

Denver Broncos seventh-round draft choice QB Chad Kelly agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Broncos Wednesday, May 10. Kelly is expected to receive a signing bonus of nearly $65,000 but other financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The last player chosen in the 2017 NFL draft, Kelly is the most talented "Mr. Irrelevant" in league history. Injuries should sideline him this year (knee, wrist, groin), but Kelly has the talent to be a starter in the NFL....if he can stay healthy and stay out of trouble. Off field issues and character concerns caused Kelly to fall in the draft (in addition to his injuries), but there's no denying the talent he has as a passer. Kelly is confident, accurate and can make every throw. If Paxton Lynch (or Trevor Siemian) doesn't really impress this year, it could open the door for Kelly in 2018.

Denver Broncos sixth-round draft choice RB De'Angelo Henderson signed his four-year contract Wednesday, May 10. The deal includes a $145,164 signing bonus but other financial information was not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Henderson is a compact runner who reminds some in the scouting community of Branden Oliver (Chargers). He's got incredible foot frequency and does a good job of maintaining speed through his cuts. Henderson is in a jam-packed backfield behind C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker. Throw in fullback Andy Janovich, and we may end up seeing Henderson put on the practice squad in 2017.

  Broncos | Garett Bolles expected to start    Tue May 9, 10:06 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos OT Garett Bolles is expected to start at left tackle.

Footballguys view: The Broncos had a huge hole at left tackle before the Bolles pick. The rookie from Utah is super aggressive and can shadow rushers around the edge. He needs to get stronger against inside moves if he wants to excel as the team's starter and blind-side protector.
