  Broncos | Joe Woods hired    Thu Jan 29, 03:58 AM

Former Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back coach Joe Woods was hired in the same capacity by the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Woods has 23 years of coaching experience, including 11 seasons as an NFL defensive backs coach with Oakland (2014), Minnesota (2006-13) and Tampa Bay (2004-05). During his eight years with the Vikings, Woods coach cornerback Antoine Winfield, who made three consecutive Pro Bowls (2008-10) under his instruction. Woods entered the NFL as a defensive backs coach with Tampa Bay, helping the Buccaneers rank first in the NFL in pass defense (172.1 ypg) during his two seasons (2004-05) with the team. Cornerback Ronde Barber earned first-team All-Pro recognition from the Associated Press following both of his seasons playing for Woods.

  Broncos | Wade Phillips hired    Thu Jan 29, 03:49 AM

Former Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was hired for the same position by the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, Jan. 28. He signed a two-year contract, financial terms of which were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This means the Broncos will be moving to a 3-4 defense. This aggressive approach should be a great move for both Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. The Broncos already have a fantastic secondary, but they'll have to find a nose tackle (Terrance Knighton is a free agent) and one more inside linebacker to start next to Brandon Marshall.

  Broncos | Tevrin Brandon signed    Thu Jan 29, 03:04 AM

Former Monmouth CB Tevrin Brandon has agreed to a contract with the Denver Broncos. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Broncos worked out Brandon in December last year. He'll compete for a reserve spot in one of the NFL's best secondaries.

Baltimore Ravens assistant special teams coach Tony Coaxum was hired by the Denver Broncos for the same position, according to a team source.

  Broncos | Rick Dennison hire official    Mon Jan 26, 04:05 PM

Former Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison was officially hired by the Denver Broncos Monday, Jan. 26, to serve as their offensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: Dennison spent four years (2010-13) as Head Coach Gary Kubiak's offensive coordinator in Houston before being hired in Baltimore last season to coach the team's quarterbacks. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco established career highs in passing yards (3,986) and touchdown passes (27) in his lone season under Dennison's guidance in 2014 while being sacked just 19 times--29 fewer than the previous season.

Updating a previous item, Former Houston Texans defensive line coach Bill Kollar has agreed to terms to become the Denver Broncos' defensive line coach Friday, Jan. 23.

Footballguys view: Kollar was a six-year DL coach with the Texans, coaching stars like J.J. Watt. We're still waiting to see who Denver pegs as their next defensive coordinator, but Wade Phillips has been mentioned as a possibility for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Zac Dysert signs Futures contract    Wed Jan 21, 04:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Zac Dysert was signed to a Reserve/Future contract Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Dysert has been on the Broncos practice squad this year after making the active roster as a third quarterback when he was a rookie in 2013. He was a seventh-round pick out of Miami (OH), and Dysert has athleticism and a rocket arm. Dysert has raw accuracy, but he's a favorite of GM John Elway. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring him.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning plans to return    Wed Jan 21, 10:48 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to return in 2015, pending the results of his annual physical, according to three sources The Denver Post's Woody Paige trusts.

Footballguys view: This is what most expected, but it will take some time to see if he can pass his yearly physical. The test results were learned at the beginning of March last season. The team has requested a decision from him by March 9. Manning has a $21.5 million cap number in 2015, but he could be asked to restructure his deal if the Broncos need extra money to sign free agents like Demaryius Thomas.

  Broncos | Kubiak plans to talk with Peyton Manning    Tue Jan 20, 05:08 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning remains unsure of his future with the team, but head coach Gary Kubiak said he plans to sit down with Manning and talk about their relationship moving forward. Kubiak doesn't think the difference in his offensive style will be a big deal if Manning decides to come back for another year. 'Well, it's easy to build a playbook for him,' Kubiak said. 'I mean, he's been the master at it for many, many years, and you're talking about a Hall of Fame player, Hall of Fame person.'

Footballguys view: You can easily make the argument that Brock Osweiler is a better fit for Kubiak's system (bootlegs, roll outs) than Peyton Manning. However, for a coach like Kubiak it would be relatively simple to adapt a system towards Manning's skill set. We still believe he's coming back for another season, but we may not know for at least another few weeks.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson happy about new offense    Tue Jan 20, 01:21 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson, who finished the year with 849 rushing yards, 324 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, is looking forward to his role in new head coach Gary Kubiak's offense in 2015. Kubiak typically runs a zone-blocking offense that is friendly to running backs. 'I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished,' Anderson said of Kubiak. 'One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It's always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can't wait to get started working with him.'

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. Anderson could put up monster numbers in the Kubiak system. He led the NFL in rushing (and rushing touchdowns) over the final six weeks of the regular season. His potential production makes Anderson a consideration as a late first- or early second-round pick in your fantasy leagues.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas skipping Pro Bowl    Mon Jan 19, 10:26 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) will not participate in the 2015 Pro Bowl, and he will be replaced by Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten.

Footballguys view: Thomas was slowed down by this ankle injury over the last half of the season. He enters free agency in 2015 having never played a full season in his four-year career. We'll see if Thomas can stick with the Broncos or move on to another team for next season.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson added to Pro Bowl    Mon Jan 19, 06:15 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has been named to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a replacement for Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee).

Footballguys view: Anderson worked hard once he got his opportunity as the starter for the Broncos. He led the NFL in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns over the final six weeks of the regular season. With Gary Kubiak hired as the new head coach in Denver, we could see Anderson have an outstanding year in 2015.

  Broncos | Gary Kubiak taking Denver job    Sun Jan 18, 09:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will take the Denver Broncos head coaching position, as expected, multiple outlets are reporting Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Kubiak was a backup quarterback behind John Elway years ago. Now, Elway is the General Manager of the Broncos and Kubiak is his choice to replace John Fox. Kubiak's West Coast system is an interesting fit for Peyton Manning. There are a lot of bootlegs and roll outs that may not be called with Manning under center. At this time, nobody knows if Manning is coming back for 2015. We think he comes back, and gets to play under Kubiak--remember, Manning was considering the Texans after he was released by the Colts in 2012.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning to skip Pro Bowl    Sun Jan 18, 09:38 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) will not play in the 2015 Pro Bowl because of a quadriceps injury.

Footballguys view: Manning struggled through this injury over the last month of the season. It's no surprise he's going to skip the Pro Bowl.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware thinks Peyton will return    Fri Jan 16, 02:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is believed to be leaning toward returning for another season, according to DE DeMarcus Ware. Ware said he has spoken to Manning since the team's divisional round loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and he's confident that Manning will return for another season. 'Me and Peyton will always talk back and forth about things. Now he's just looking forward to the next season and how we can get better,' Ware said. 'I think he'll be back. I feel like he still has a couple years in him.'

Footballguys view: Manning is going to take some time before he makes a decision about his future. Most around the team feel that he's going to make another run at a Super Bowl in 2015.

  Broncos | May have interest in Kyle Shanahan    Fri Jan 16, 11:42 AM

Free-agent offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan may be getting interest from the Denver Broncos for a vacant coaching position, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: We're likely to see Shanahan as an offensive coordinator for the Broncos if Gary Kubiak is hired as the head coach. Kubiak is interviewing with the Broncos on Sunday, and we're expecting a decision some time soon after that.

  Broncos | Kerry Taylor signs Futures deal    Thu Jan 15, 06:18 PM

Free-agent WR Kerry Taylor (Cowboys) signed a Reserve/Future deal with the Denver Broncos Thursday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Taylor came out of Arizona State as an undrafted free agent in 2011. He's bounced around to several different teams from now until then. Taylor will get a chance to make the final roster for the Broncos in camp next year.

  Broncos | Doug Marrone a head-coaching candidate?    Thu Jan 15, 04:40 PM

Former Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone is expected to be a candidate for the Denver Broncos' head-coaching position.

Footballguys view: He was red hot after he left Buffalo but the bloom has left the rose by now and we wouldn't be shocked if he didn't have a head coaching job come next season. He'd be an interesting fit for the Broncos, and might be a good choice to transition from Peyton Manning (whether he stays or not) to whatever comes next.

  Broncos | Vic Fangio a head-coaching candidate?    Thu Jan 15, 04:39 PM

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is expected to be a candidate for the Denver Broncos' head-coaching position.

Footballguys view: Fangio is a good defensive coordinator, but a head coach? We're not sure about that. We'll see - the Broncos are keeping options open at this time.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play in Pro Bowl    Thu Jan 15, 03:32 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play in the 2015 Pro Bowl is an injury replacement for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed).

Footballguys view: Congratulations to a player who won a lot of fantasy championships out there. Sanders had a heckuva year, but how effective will he be next season if Peyton Manning doesn't come back? Or Adam Gase is gone? The future is up in the air for the Broncos since they've been bounced from the playoffs and John Fox was fired.

  Broncos | Denver high on Brock Osweiler    Tue Jan 13, 04:44 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler continues to receive high reviews inside the organization as the eventual successor to QB Peyton Manning, according to sources inside the organization. Osweiler has gone 100-for-170 for 1,089 yards (6.4 yards per attempt) and a four-to-five touchdown-to-interception ratio of 12 preseason games and some mop-up appearances in the regular season since being drafted in 2012.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners take note here. Osweiler has the upside of a Ben Roethlisberger if he completely plays up to his potential. It's a longshot, but apparently the Broncos have liked what he's shown over the last three years.

  Broncos | John Elway wants Peyton Manning back    Tue Jan 13, 04:41 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be given time to make up his mind on the future of his playing career, but general manager John Elway would very much like to have him return for the 2015 season and beyond. 'Just know how much we want you back, but the thing is for you to take the time and get away from this,' Elway said he told Manning. Elway will keep in touch with Manning over the next several weeks, and Manning will be 'involved in the process' of finding a new head coach.

Footballguys view: Manning is going to take some time off before he makes his decision about next year. If healthy, Manning could still be an effective starter to get you to the playoffs. Whether or not he could win another Super Bowl is unknown.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning confidant says he'll play    Tue Jan 13, 10:25 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will likely play in 2015, according to a source close to Manning. 'I think he'll be back,' the source said. 'He was just emotional after the game because of the disappointment of the loss and everything that went into it. He just needs to take a month off and get away from it all and he'll be fine.'

Footballguys view: Manning was certainly emotional--and non-committal-- after the loss to the Colts in the Divisional Round. Perhaps with some time away, Manning will decide to play football in 2015. His cap number is $21.5 million in 2015, and the team has until March before that number becomes guaranteed.

  Broncos | Eric Studesville could interview    Tue Jan 13, 07:34 AM

Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville may be a candidate to interview for the head coach position recently vacated by John Fox.

Footballguys view: The players--especially the running backs--on the Broncos roster love Studesville. He's got plenty of coaching experience, and he could be counted on in a larger role. Studesville was the interim coach in 2010 after Josh McDaniels was fired.

  Broncos | Wes Welker's targets fall off    Mon Jan 12, 09:19 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker was targeted 64 times in 14 games this season after being targeted 110 times in 13 games the previous season.

Footballguys view: Welker's role was minimized in Denver this year. The emergence of Emmanuel Sanders, plus the Broncos switch to a run-heavy offense, caused the change. Welker is likely done with the Broncos, and he enters free agency in 2015.

Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs, WR Isaiah Burse, WR Bennie Fowler, WR Nathan Palmer, C Matt Paradis and DE Gerald Rivers were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Bibbs and Fowler are the two players to watch here in super super deep dynasty leagues. Fowler was a UDFA out of Michigan State this year, and he has a lot of Anquan Boldin to his game. Bibbs was a star at Colorado State, and he runs with great balance and a nose for the end zone (31 rushing touchdowns for the Rams in 2013).

  Broncos | John Fox will not return    Mon Jan 12, 05:13 PM

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox and the team mutually agreed to part ways Monday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have won four straight AFC West titles, but in the end it wasn't enough. Denver has failed to win a Super Bowl with Peyton Manning, and time is running out--IF Manning comes back. We'll likely see OC Adam Gase and DC Jack Del Rio move on as well. Denver is looking at potentially replacing three coaches and perhaps their QB before the start of the 2015 season.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning decision has target window    Mon Jan 12, 11:53 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's $19 million salary for 2015 becomes guaranteed March 9.

Footballguys view: Manning's quad injury that was revealed as more severe than originally thought sheds a lot of light on what we saw from the veteran quarterback. He has to pass a physical for that money to be fully guaranteed this year, but at this point in his career Manning is not concerned with money. In fact, the Broncos could be asking Manning to take a pay cut if they want to go after some high-dollar free agents.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) played Sunday, Jan. 11, and the final month of the season, with a torn right quadriceps muscle, according to two sources.

Footballguys view: And the truth shall set you free! Just watching Manning it was easy to see that something was wrong. Many mistakenly put the blame on his lack of arm strength when in fact it was his leg failing him. A healthy Manning probably looks a lot better than he did over the last few weeks of the season and in the postseason.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was 2-for-12 on passes that traveled 15 yards or more Sunday, Jan. 11, in the divisional-round playoff loss.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed 26 of his 46 pass attempts and finished with 211 yards and one touchdown in a 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 11.

  Broncos | Quanterus Smith to IR    Sun Jan 11, 07:33 AM

The Denver Broncos placed DE Quanterus Smith (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Jan. 10. To fill the roster spot, the team promoted LB Shaquil Barrett to the acrive roster.

Footballguys view: It's the same knee that Smith injured in his final season of college at Western Kentucky (2012). Smith missed his rookie season with this injury, and now he's going to have another recovery period to go through. He had 12 sacks in 2012, including three against Alabama, but Smith may never be the pass-rusher the Broncos envisioned when they selected him as a sleeper pick in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft.

  Broncos | Brandon Marshall a game-time decision    Sat Jan 10, 09:14 AM

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) will be a game-time decision for the Divisional Round playoff game, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Marshall said he believes he can play in the game. We feel he can make some plays for the Broncos on Sunday. If Marshall is out there, it will boost the Broncos defense...especially when they're tasked with covering talented tight ends like Dwayne Allen or Coby Fleener.

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) practiced all week and is expected to play in the team's divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11, despite being listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Broncos defense. Marshall has done a fine job filling in at weak-side linebacker. His coverage skills could help slow down tight ends like Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen on Sunday.

Footballguys view: Thomas is good to go in a great matchup against Vontae Davis. Manning get plenty of support from the Broncos improved ground game, and that will give him time to attack vertically if the Broncos so desire.

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 9, and is probable for the divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Thomas is going to play on Sunday against the Colts. Just know that he's about 75 percent healthy according to reports. This means the Broncos could limit Thomas' playing time in the Divisional Round. Even with limited targets, Thomas could have high-value targets near the end zone. Keep this in mind when you're setting your daily games lineup.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning probable against Colts    Fri Jan 9, 04:05 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 9, and is probable for the divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Manning is good to go for this big game. While the Broncos are more of a run-heavy team now, we could see Manning throw the ball about 30 times on Sunday. The weather shouldn't be much of a factor, and Manning could look better than he has in recent weeks since the Broncos got some time off during their bye last week.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning had just one 300-yard passing game over the final six weeks of the season, and he failed to throw a touchdown in two of his final four games.

Footballguys view: Yes, his numbers have trailed off....but at the same time, the Broncos rushing attack has exploded. C.J. Anderson led all backs in rushing yards over the last six weeks of the season. The Broncos want better balance offensively, and that's what they got over those six weeks. In fact, they ran the ball on 54 percent of their offensive plays during that time.
