  Broncos | Ryan Shazier visits    Fri Apr 18, 09:02 PM

The Denver Broncos met with Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier earlier this week. The team could consider taking him in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft and using him at middle linebacker.

Footballguys view: Shazier has the ability to arrive at the ball with authority. Some think he's too small to play in the middle, but Shazier will likely add 10 pounds of muscle in an NFL weight program. If he can do that and retain his speed/explosiveness, then Shazier could be a fine pick at 31 overall.

  Broncos | Will work out two prospects    Wed Apr 16, 04:29 PM

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to work out Miami QB Stephen Morris and Mississippi WR Donte Moncrief before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Moncrief is a big-bodied wide receiver who can adjust to poorly thrown passes. He is not a burner, but he does track the ball well over his shoulder. Moncrief is a value pick for some team out there after a statistically disappointing 2013.

  Broncos | Montee Ball receives endorsement    Wed Apr 16, 10:24 AM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he believes RB Montee Ball is ready to be a starting running back.

Footballguys view: It's Ball's time. The Broncos let Knowshon Moreno walk in free agency to the Miami Dolphins because they are ready to let Ball tote the rock. He'll build off the momentum that he established last year as the season went on. Over the final six weeks of 2013, only Jamaal Charles (6.6) averaged more yards per carry than Ball (6.5, 52-337). Ball also led the NFL in percentage of rushes for first downs (40.4 percent) and carries of 10 or more yards (21.2 percent) during final six weeks of 2013.

  Broncos | Left guard is unsettled    Mon Apr 14, 11:46 PM

The Denver Broncos' offseason conditioning program begins Monday, April 21. It remains unclear whether OT Orlando Franklin, OG Ben Garland or C Manuel Ramirez will be the team's left guard.

Footballguys view: At this time it seems like Franklin is going to stay at right tackle. There he may face competition from Chris Clark. Garland is a converted defensive lineman, and Ramirez is a guard who filled in as the starting center for all of 2013. No matter who wins the job, the Broncos want elite protection for Peyton Manning.

  Broncos | Uncertainty at center position    Mon Apr 14, 11:45 PM

The Denver Broncos' offseason conditioning program begins Monday, April 21. It's not known whether C Will Montgomery or C Manuel Ramirez will start at center.

Footballguys view: We'll see this competition in training camp. There's a chance we'll see a rookie added to the mix as well.

  Broncos | Kayvon Webster moving up depth chart    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

Denver Broncos CB Kayvon Webster is currently slotted as the team's third cornerback, and he could even see a bigger role if CB Chris X. Harris (knee) isn't quite ready.

Footballguys view: Webster is not ready for that larger role. When forced into more playing time last year he struggled late in the season as a rookie. The Broncos top pick in the draft should be a cornerback.

  Broncos | Chris Harris entering contract year    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

With Denver Broncos CB Chris X. Harris (knee) making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in January, and the fact he is eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season, the team is likely to select a cornerback in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  Broncos | Avery Williamson might fill need    Mon Apr 14, 11:43 PM

The Denver Broncos would like to find a middle linebacker in the 2014 NFL Draft to fill the 'Mike' position. The ideal Mike prospect would be at least 240 pounds and run the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds. The only inside linebacker to meet both criteria in this year's draft is Kentucky LB Avery Williamson, who checked in at 246 pounds with a 4.66 seconds dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: The Broncos want a "Mike" that doesn't have to come off the field on passing downs. Williamson is a bit undersized, but he certainly has the speed to cover. The Broncos have done well with Kentucky linebackers in recent years (Danny Trevathan, Wesley Woodyard). Williamson is considered a late-round pick.

  Broncos | Nate Irving appears to be starter for now    Mon Apr 14, 05:02 PM

Denver Broncos LB Nate Irving appears to be the leading candidate to start at middle linebacker at this time, but the team is expected to select a middle linebacker during the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: We're expecting the Broncos to add a middle linebacker in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL draft. That rookie will compete with Irving and Steven Johnson for the starting job.

  Broncos | Von Miller hopes to return better than ever    Mon Apr 14, 03:21 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) said his surgically repaired knee is feeling good and hopes to play better than he did before he suffered his injury. 'I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better. You come back and be the same guy it's like you go 'it's the same Von again' and I got to be better,' Miller said.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Miller can come back stronger than before. His 2013 season was cut short, first by a six-game suspension than later by a Week 16 ACL injury. Adding DeMarcus Ware is huge for the Broncos. Ware gives them another elite pass-rusher, plus he's going to be a mentor to Miller. The Broncos lost Miller's mentor when Elvis Dumervil (Ravens) moved on in free agency last offseason.

  Broncos | Kyle Fuller will visit    Wed Apr 9, 04:31 PM

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to meet with Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Fuller could be among the top targets for the Broncos. He's a big, physical corner who can break up a receiver's timing on a route. The Broncos may be lucky if Fuller makes it to the 31st overall pick.

  Broncos | Not players for Chris Johnson    Wed Apr 9, 10:53 AM

The Denver Post's Mike Klis speculates the Denver Broncos aren't a fit for free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Titans). Klis doesn't think Johnson will accept a No. 2 role, and Denver probably won't give him the money he'll demand.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. It's Ball's time in Denver. They are going with Montee Ball as their featured back in 2014.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas out of workouts    Wed Apr 9, 08:47 AM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) is not taking part in workouts with QB Peyton Manning and teammates at Duke University because of the shoulder injury he suffered in the Super Bowl. WRs Emmanuel Sanders, Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell are present with TE Julius Thomas.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Thomas already has outstanding chemistry with Manning, and he doesn't need to risk further injury. He's in a contract season in 2014, and Thomas could break the bank this upcoming offseason with another monster year.

  Broncos | John Fox extension update    Fri Apr 4, 11:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos head coach John Fox is expected to make $5 million to $6 million per season as part of his three-year contract extension.

  Broncos | John Fox agrees to extension    Fri Apr 4, 10:24 PM

The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with head coach John Fox on a three-year contract extension. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Broncos needed to get Fox a new deal. He's won three AFC West titles over the last three years, and the Broncos have been Super Bowl contenders over the last two seasons. So long as Peyton Manning is under center, Fox and company should have plenty of success.

  Broncos | Will work out Stephen Morris    Thu Apr 3, 01:47 PM

The Denver Broncos will work out Miami QB Stephen Morris.

Footballguys view: Can't imagine this is more than kicking the tires on some depth, though Zac Dysert isn't a sure thing to last as backup. Morris isn't more than that though.

  Broncos | Two will compete for center job    Wed Apr 2, 04:59 PM

Denver Broncos C Will Montgomery and C Manuel Ramirez will compete for the starting center job during training camp. Ramirez could move to left guard if he does not win the competition.

Footballguys view: The team has to do something after losing Zane Beadles to the Jaguars in free agency. Ramirez may be a better fit inside at guard. The team could also draft another lineman in the 2014 NFL draft.

  Broncos | Will Montgomery contract update    Wed Apr 2, 04:59 PM

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos signed C Will Montgomery to a one-year deal worth $1.325 million. Montgomery can make additional money by reaching play-time incentives.

  Broncos | Will Montgomery agrees    Wed Apr 2, 12:00 AM

The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with free-agent C Will Montgomery (Redskins) on a one-year deal Tuesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: Montgomery can play center or guard. He'll compete with Manny Ramirez for the starting job in the middle. Ramirez could move back to his more natural position of guard.

  Broncos | Chris Harris signs tender    Tue Apr 1, 01:58 PM

Denver Broncos CB Chris X. Harris signed his $2.187 restricted free-agent tender Tuesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: A good move for the Broncos and Harris here. He's coming off the partially-torn ACL he suffered in the playoff game against the Chargers last year. Early indications have him being at full strength by the start of the regular season.

  Broncos | Re-sign Winston Justice    Fri Mar 28, 02:46 PM

The Denver Broncos re-signed OT Winston Justice to a one-year deal Friday, March 28. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Justice can play as swing tackle for the Broncos. They may move Chris Clark to the right tackle position, opening up a spot for Justice to earn a role as a reserve player.

  Broncos | Montee Ball made late run    Fri Mar 28, 10:18 AM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed 52 times for 337 yards (6.5 yards per carry) in the final six games of the season. Only Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (6.6 yards per carry) had a higher yards-per-carry average during that stretch.

Footballguys view: It's Ball's time. With Knowshon Moreno with the Dolphins, we'll see Ball likely win the lead back position for the Broncos. The team wants more balance in 2014, and Ball could gain more rushing yards than Moreno did in 2013.

  Broncos | Open to re-signing Knowshon Moreno     Mon Mar 24, 04:02 PM

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said the team is open to the idea of re-signing free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason.

Footballguys view: The market has been ice cold for Moreno's services. If the team brings him back, it will likely be as the backup behind Montee Ball.

  Broncos | Kendial Lawrence worked out    Fri Mar 21, 07:24 PM

The Denver Broncos worked out free-agent RB Kendial Lawrence (Cowboys) earlier this week but did not sign him.

Footballguys view: Lawrence can be a good receiving threat out of the backfield, plus he has the size to be competent between the tackles. He is currently playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Canadian Football League. Lawrence may get a camp invite as the Broncos continue to look for running back depth.

  Broncos | Wes Welker has more guaranteed money    Mon Mar 17, 03:17 AM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker had a $3 million salary for 2014 and a $3 million roster bonus become fully guaranteed on Wednesday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Zero shock here. Welker's going to be an even bigger part of what the Broncos do this season. There were some who thought his inflated cap number in 2014 would get him released. The Broncos quickly shot that down during press conferences at the scouting combine.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders was almost in Kansas City    Mon Mar 17, 02:28 AM

The three-year deal WR Emmanuel Sanders signed to join the Denver Broncos stands as official. However, Sanders' agent, Steve Weinberg, had originally accepted a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on his client's behalf. Weinberg then shopped Kansas City's offer to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without telling the Buccaneers that the offer had already been accepted. Ultimately, of course, Sanders agreed to sign with Denver.

Footballguys view: "There was no handshake." was what Sanders said yesterday during his press conference at Dove Valley. This type of shopping of offers happens all the time in the NFL. Somebody leaked the offer from the Chiefs, or else we may never have even heard of this.

  Broncos | Will Montgomery to visit    Sun Mar 16, 07:36 PM

The Denver Broncos are scheduled to meet with free-agent C Will Montgomery (Redskins) during the early part of this week.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders agrees to terms    Sun Mar 16, 01:14 PM

The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) to a three-year deal worth as much as $18 million. The deal includes $6 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The Broncos get Sanders to essentially take the place of Eric Decker (Jets). We'll see if Sanders can stay healthy and become a productive piece of the Broncos offense. With 11 career receiving touchdowns, it's not out of the question to think he could match that total in one season catching passes from Peyton Manning.

  Broncos | Two expected to compete for MLB job    Sun Mar 16, 12:53 PM

Denver Broncos LBs Nate Irving and Steven Johnson are expected to compete for the starting middle linebacker job next season, because the team was not able to sign a middle linebacker in free agency.

Footballguys view: Irving was selected in the third round of the 2011 NFL draft with the idea that he could be an impact middle linebacker someday. Instead, he's looked better as a part-time reserve strong-side linebacker. Johnson is a thumper who can find the ball quickly.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders agrees to terms    Sat Mar 15, 09:59 PM

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos agreed to terms with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) Saturday, March 15, a source confirmed.

Footballguys view: Peyton Manning is such an attractive draw that Sanders signed with the Broncos even though he never visited the team. He'll help fill the spot vacated by Eric Decker in 2014, and we like Sanders as a WR3 with great upside on his new team. With 11 career touchdowns, it's not out of the question that he could get 11 touchdowns in 2014 with the Broncos.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders expected to sign    Sat Mar 15, 09:19 PM

The Denver Broncos are expected to sign free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers), according to league sources. Neither the team, nor the player's agent, will confirm the report.

Footballguys view: It would be a fine addition for the Broncos. Sanders could take the spot vacated by Eric Decker, and he would give the team more speed opposite Demaryius Thomas.

  Broncos | Could show interest in several linemen    Sat Mar 15, 11:57 AM

The Denver Broncos could show interest in free-agent Cs Brian De La Puente (Saints) and Samson Satele (Colts) with the idea of moving C Manuel Ramirez to offensive guard. The team could also pursue free-agent OGs Davin Joseph (Buccaneers) and Kevin Boothe (Giants) and keep Ramirez at center.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have a hole on the offensive line to fill after losing Zane Beadles to the Jaguars in free agency.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib's deal could be reduced to one year    Fri Mar 14, 08:29 AM

Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib's six-year, $57 million deal could end up being a one-year, $12 million commitment. Only $11.5 million is truly guaranteed, and he'll receive that in 2014. The rest of the guaranteed money includes base salaries of $5.5 million and $8.5 million in 2015-16 that are guaranteed for injury only until the first day of the respective league years. Barring a career-ending injury, they could cut him next year and eat a $4 million salary cap hit.

Footballguys view: A wise move for the Broncos here. Talib is a talented player, but he's never played a full 16-game season during his pro career due to injury or suspension.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib said he didn't deal with hip injury    Wed Mar 12, 07:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib (hip) said he didn't suffer from a hip injury at all last season, despite what the New England Patriots reported. 'That was in Tampa, that was the right side. I haven't had a hip problem since Tampa. The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff, but I haven't had a hip problem since Tampa. The injury I had was actually a quad injury, it was reported as a hip injury, but that's how they do things,' Talib said.

Footballguys view: This is strange to say the least, as Talib missed games last year so why does it matter why he missed? Didn't Talib say his hip had healed? It doesn't really matter, at the end of the day he had some injury an missed time.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware officially signs    Wed Mar 12, 04:45 PM

The Denver Broncos have officially signed DE DeMarcus Ware.

Footballguys view: While "Von Ware" doesn't ring the way "Von Dum" did, this could be a very effective pairing in this defensive front. Ware isn't as good as he used to be, but he is still effective and with Miller across from him, might see a bump in production. The Broncos are looking like winners in free agency so far.

  Broncos | Orlando Franklin, Manuel Ramirez OG options    Wed Mar 12, 04:20 PM

The Denver Broncos may consider moving OT Orlando Franklin to left guard and keeping OT Chris Clark at right tackle next season. The team could also move C Manuel Ramirez to guard and sign a free-agent center.

Footballguys view: With all the injuries to the line last year, the Broncos got a solid look at all their depth. It should give them insight into who could be the best fit where, though we wouldn't be shocked if they picked up someone else in free agency or the draft.

  Broncos | Not expected to add RB now    Wed Mar 12, 04:17 PM

The Denver Broncos are not expected to sign a running back at this point, because they want to give RBs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson as many offseason reps as they can before they consider adding a veteran running back.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have their backfield and while they may kick the tires on someone at some point, there is no reason for them to go after a free agent now. Expect Ball and Anderson to get a lot of reps in camp and split time next season. An RBBC committee hurts both RBs values, but there is enough for them both to be productive as a RB3 or a low end RB2.

  Broncos | Were talking with Jon Beason    Wed Mar 12, 04:16 PM

The Denver Broncos were negotiating with New York Giants LB Jon Beason before he decided to re-sign with the Giants.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib healthy    Wed Mar 12, 03:32 PM

Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib said his hip injury from the 2013 AFC Championship game is 100 percent healed, calling the injury a deep bone bruise.

Footballguys view: This is a big deal, though staying healthy for a whole season would be bigger. Talib has never finished a full season and has missed 17 games over the last four years.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib says he has grown up    Wed Mar 12, 03:23 PM

Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib said during his introductory press conference with the team that he has matured after having his second son, and he also credited to the way the New England Patriots run their organization for how he turned his life around. Talib said that at 28 years old he grown up.

Footballguys view: Anwar Richardson added on Twitter that Talib is clearly a much different guy than when Richardson covered him on the Bucs. It's good to see a guy turn his life around and Talib has definitely stepped up his play as well.

  Broncos | Interested in Brandon LaFell    Wed Mar 12, 03:17 PM

The Denver Broncos have expressed interest in free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Panthers).

  Broncos | Had interest in Jairus Byrd    Wed Mar 12, 03:06 PM

The Denver Broncos had interest in New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd before he ultimately signed with the Saints on the first day of free agency.

Footballguys view: Everyone was shocked Byrd flew (see what we did there?) to New Orleans, but the Broncos quickly shifted gears and nabbed T.J. Ward and Aqib Talib instead. They should be fine with that duo, though Talib was an injury concern last season. Still a team has to adjust on the fly and the Broncos did that and then some.

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware will make $13 million this season, which is $250,000 more than he was scheduled to make had the Dallas Cowboys not cut him. He will make $7 million guaranteed for 2015, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Ware isn't the player he once was, but he could see a rise in numbers playing in the same defensive front as a healthy Von Miller. Denver's defense could be very scary next year.
