  Broncos | Vance Joseph expects long QB battle    Wed Apr 26, 03:28 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said he expects the competition between QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch to last for a long time because both players are working hard.

Footballguys view: This one is a true quarterback competition and with Gary Kubiak gone, there should be no favorites. Siemian is probably more advanced and safer, but Lynch offers athletic and arm talent upside. The offense should be more pass-heavy this year, so the winner will be a deep league sleeper.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch more comfortable, confident    Tue Apr 25, 04:44 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is noticeably more confident and feels more comfortable, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck.

Footballguys view: Lynch was selected in the first round last year but he barely played as a rookie while Trevor Siemian struggled through as the starter. This year it's a 50/50 competition for the starting job between the two. Lynch has physical gifts (tall, mobile, rocket arm) but he'll need to be better than Siemian if he wants the starting job.

  Broncos | Broncos like Christian McCaffrey 'a lot'    Mon Apr 24, 10:08 PM

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey is liked 'a lot' by the Denver Broncos, according to general manager John Elway.

Footballguys view: We agree. There's a lot to like about McCaffrey's game, and he's more than just a change-of-pace back. McCaffrey is unlikely to be on the board by the time the Broncos pick at 20th overall.

  Broncos | Zach Cunningham visits Broncos    Fri Apr 21, 10:44 AM

Vanderbilt LB Zach Cunningham visited the Denver Broncos earlier this week.

Footballguys view: Cunningham is a coverage linebacker who can patrol from sideline to sideline. He's a drag tackler and not violent at the point of attack. However, Cunningham is smart, rarely takes false steps and always finds himself around the ball. The Broncos could be looking at him as an option with the 20th pick in the first round.

  Broncos | Aqib Talib won't be suspended    Tue Apr 18, 12:38 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib will not be suspended for his alleged role in a 2016 shooting incident, according to a source. The NFL has closed its investigation.

Footballguys view: Shocking news here quite frankly. Talib shot himself last year but apparently he's come clean (and the police investigation determined the wound was self inflicted). No suspension means he'll be out there for the Broncos Week 1. Talib is a leader on that team and still playing at a high level.

  Broncos | Denver meets with Dion Dawkins    Sun Apr 16, 04:24 PM

Temple OG Dion Dawkins recently met with the Denver Broncos, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Broncos could be looking at Dawkins as a first or second round pick. They may move back in the first round, and they may move out of the top round. Dawkins is a developmental prospect who could line up at tackle or inside at guard.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch's work habits not in question?    Sun Apr 16, 03:00 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch received a public show of support for his work ethic Sunday, April 16 - not long after DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus said in a radio interview some of his sources questioned his work ethic and study habits. Mike Klis of 9 News Denver called Broaddus' claims 'inappropriate and false'.

Footballguys view: Last year, Lynch didn't beat Trevor Siemian to the building. This year during offseason workouts, teammates indicate that he's a new man. Demaryius Thomas also commented how Lynch was more confident, while head coach Vance Joseph said Paxton was "all smiles" so far. Lynch has a ton of talent, but it remains to be seen if he can beat out Siemian for the starting job in 2017.

  Broncos | Work ethic an issue for Paxton Lynch?    Sun Apr 16, 02:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch is reportedly having trouble 'buying in' to things like an 'early in, late out' attitude, according to DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus, who spoke with some of his sources in Denver recently.

Footballguys view: That may have been last year, but this year reports indicate Lynch is ready to go. As a rookie, Lynch had a lot of growing to do and only started two games for the Broncos (one win, one loss). This year, he's in a 50/50 competition for the starting job. We'll see what kind of an impression he can make on the new coaching staff.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch working on footwork    Sat Apr 15, 04:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has been working on improving his footwork this offseason and hopes to win the starting quarterback job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Lynch has a ton of natural talent, but he was a project coming out of Memphis as a first-round pick in 2016. If he puts in the work to improve his game, Lynch could beat Trevor Siemian for the starting job in Denver.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian wants faster release    Thu Apr 13, 03:54 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian admitted that he needs to throw the ball sooner in order to protect himself.

Footballguys view: One of several needed improvements in his game. He and Paxton Lynch will battle for the starting spot in Denver this preseason, and Siemian has the edge in experience but is no sure thing to win the job.

  Broncos | Christian McCaffrey visiting Broncos    Wed Apr 12, 11:33 AM

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey is visiting the Denver Broncos Thursday, April 13.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey is going to be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and there's a chance that he's off the board by the time the Broncos pick at number 20. If the Broncos really want the dynamic, all-purpose runner then they'll likely have to move up.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas seeking more YAC    Tue Apr 11, 11:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said one reason he is looking forward to playing under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy again is because of his more frequent use of wide receiver screen passes, which will increase his yards after the catch totals. Thomas previously ranked in the top-two among receivers in yards after the catch in 2012 and 2013, but without McCoy, those numbers dropped significantly. This past season, Thomas had 336 yards after the catch, ranking him 25th among receivers.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas working on hips     Tue Apr 11, 03:16 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hips) said he has spent the early part of the offseason making his hips healthy. He does not need surgery, but he was not at 100 percent either. Thomas added that his hips bothered him for much of 2016 but doesn't believe they'll be an issue this year.

Footballguys view: Thomas was not 100 percent healthy last year, but he was still the top receiver for the Broncos. This year, new head coach Vance Joseph wants to see Thomas stay healthy and be more dominant right off the bat.

  Broncos | Cam Robinson to visit Broncos    Tue Apr 11, 11:47 AM

Alabama OT Cam Robinson will visit the Denver Broncos Wednesday, April 12.

Footballguys view: Robinson could be an option for the Broncos in the first round. They don't have a starting caliber left tackle on the roster right now, and perhaps Robinson is pegged as the answer at the position. The team wants to run the ball more in 2017, and Robinson is a mauler as a run blocker.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian ready for OTAs    Mon Apr 10, 03:20 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) is a full participant as organized team activities commence Monday, April 10, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Siemian has been going through shoulder rehabilitation this offseason.

Footballguys view: He had shoulder surgery (non-throwing) in January and has been on the mend ever since. Siemian is injury prone dating back to his days in college at Northwestern, and he couldn't make it through last season without two shoulder injuries (one to each shoulder) and a foot injury. He will compete with Paxton Lynch this year to be the team's starter.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson full go    Mon Apr 10, 03:14 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is a full participant as organized team activities commence Monday, April 10, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Anderson has been recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury and subsequent surgery since last season.

Footballguys view: The team is going to take it easy on Anderson as he recovers from the meniscus injury that ended his season. If healthy, Anderson will be the featured back for the Broncos. However, we expect the team to add RB talent in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian has upper hand in QB race    Sat Apr 8, 04:55 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian appears to have the upper hand over QB Paxton Lynch in the starting quarterback competition entering offseason workouts, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.

Footballguys view: Siemian has the upper hand due to his starting experience and work ethic. This is an open competition, and it will be on the 2016 first rounder (Lynch) to prove that he's the best QB in Denver.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch needs quicker progressions    Thu Apr 6, 09:29 AM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch needs to recognize what defenses are doing against their offense quicker this offseason. Former head coach Gary Kubiak said Lynch's footwork was an issue because of the 6-foot-7 quarterback's stride length. Lynch was too reliant on the sideline throws and rarely challenged defenses in the middle of the field. He also left the pocket too quickly at times. 'I know he's been working down in Florida with a coach and working on some technique things,' executive vice president of football operations/general manager John Elway said.

Footballguys view: That was one of his issues coming out of college, so by the time camp comes around he should have improved. It's between him and Trevor Siemian and as Lynch is the first round pick, we think he'll win the job if he improves just a little.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian needs to get rid of ball    Thu Apr 6, 09:28 AM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian's biggest hurdle this offseason is to know when to get rid of the ball, not take so many hits or take risks with throws outside the numbers. Opposing defensive coaches have said he has the demeanor in the pocket that's tough to face because he makes quick decisions without being rushed in his reads. They also have said his willingness to fit the ball in tight spaces and throw with anticipation gives him the look of a starter.

Footballguys view: Both he and Paxton Lynch have issues and whichever quarterback can fix his problems this offseason likely win the job. We still lean towards Lynch as he was an Elway first round pick.

  Broncos | C.J. Anderson might not be ready for OTAs    Mon Apr 3, 11:19 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) might not be ready for the start of organized team activities Monday, April 10, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'If he's working in OTAs in the middle part of it, we'll be fine with him in the fall,' Joseph conceded.

Footballguys view: Anderson's conditioning is something to watch closely, as he has had issues in the past before his rise to being the Broncos #1 running back. The team added Ronald Leary to improve their run blocking and should address the offensive line in the draft, if not add another running back after 2016 fourth-round pick Devontae Booker disappointed last year.

Footballguys view: Taylor has a chance to be the team's third receiver this year. He helped Peyton Manning's comeback from a foot injury while he was on the practice squad in 2015.

  Broncos | Tony Romo not trade option for Denver    Mon Apr 3, 07:37 PM

The Denver Broncos will not trade for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even though the Cowboys have allowed Romo to talk with other teams, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The buzz is a resolution to the Romo situation will happen in the next week or so. The Broncos and Texans have already expressed they won't trade for Romo, and being allowed to talk to him hasn't changed that. However, both teams should be interested if/when Romo is released.

  Broncos | Denver unlikely to pursue Colin Kaepernick    Mon Mar 27, 08:29 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) likely will not receive interest from the Denver Broncos because the team would look for a quarterback that would fit their offense better if they decide to sign a veteran quarterback, according to general manager John Elway.

Footballguys view: Last year the Broncos wanted Kaepernick, but that was before they moved up in the first round to select QB Paxton Lynch. This year, Lynch will compete with last year's starter Trevor Siemian for the main job.

  Broncos | Tony Romo unlikely to join Broncos    Mon Mar 27, 06:56 PM

Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said it is not the team's intention to pursue Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo even if he is released this offseason.

  Broncos | Denver sticking with young quarterbacks    Mon Mar 27, 05:25 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch remain the focus of the Broncos' quarterback situation, general manager John Elway reiterated Monday, March 27. Elway said Denver has confidence in both quarterbacks and that they should provide a great competition this offseason. Elway did add that the Broncos will 'see what's available in the draft.'

Footballguys view: The Broncos moved up in the first round last year to draft Lynch. Siemian was the starter in 2016, but the team will want him to compete with Lynch this year for the job. The Tony Romo conversation seems to be done in Denver. Never say never, but the further we get away from the start of free agency the more it seems like the Broncos have moved on.

Alabama OT Cam Robinson is scheduled to meet with the Denver Broncos before the 2017 NFL draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Robinson is one of the best tackles in this draft class...but it is a poor selection to choose from. The Broncos don't really have a left tackle at this point, and free agency is mostly done. They could draft Robinson in the first round and try him out on the left side as their starter in 2017.

  Broncos | Denver wants Vance Walker back    Thu Mar 23, 11:49 PM

Free-agent DE Vance Walker (Broncos) has talked to the Broncos about re-signing, and head coach Vance Joseph said the two sides will try to 'get something done.'

Footballguys view: Walker was supposed to be the team's replacement for Malik Jackson last year. A knee injury suffered in training camp cut that off, and the Broncos struggled to stop the run. Getting Walker back at a cheap price makes a lot of sense.

  Broncos | Denver wants to run the ball    Sun Mar 19, 09:49 PM

Denver Broncos OG Ronald Leary and OT Menelik Watson were signed to change the culture of the offensive line, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'Running the ball on our terms, heavy box or light box, let's run the football,' Joseph said. 'That is the attitude that you want.'

Footballguys view: That's good news for the offense...and the defense in Denver. Running the ball will grind down the clock and keep the defense fresh. If C.J. Anderson can stay healthy this year, he could play up to his potential for a full season. Anderson has shown flashes as a pro, and he's certainly fantasy relevant as a RB2 when healthy.

Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon is visiting the Denver Broncos Thursday, March 16, according to a source. Mixon has already visited the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: The Broncos need a running back option as nobody has done much save for CJ Anderson, and he has been alternately hurt and inconsistent. Mixon has tremendous talent and a giant sized red flag off the field with a domestic violence incident, and a recent issue with a parking attendant. We'll have to see how much that weighs against obvious talent for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Denver may look at King Dunlap    Wed Mar 15, 08:20 PM

Free-agent OT King Dunlap (Chargers) is a player that the Denver Broncos has considered adding this offseason since the team has been looking for a left tackle.

Footballguys view: The Broncos still need to do work on their offensive line. They've added OG Ron Leary and OT Menelik Watson, but they don't have a starting left tackle. Dunlap isn't a great option, but he might be the best of what's left out there in free agency.

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said he believes the team's quarterback situation is in good shape for the next four or five years with QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch on the roster.

Footballguys view: The Broncos don't seem as intent on adding Tony Romo (Cowboys) as some make them out to be. Stay tuned to this situation. Any open QB competition between Siemian and Lynch won't really take place until August. The winner could have a big impact on the fantasy value of the players on the Broncos offense, especially WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
