  Broncos | Drew Lock may be available for Week 5    Fri Oct 2, 08:48 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) has a 50-50 chance to play in the Week 5 game, according to head coach Vic Fangio. QB Brett Rypien will continue to start if Lock is not able to play.

Footballguys view: So much for our hopes of seeing Blake Bortles on an NFL field again.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien has an eventful evening    Fri Oct 2, 12:06 AM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien completed 19 of his 31 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the New York Jets on Thursday, Oct. 1.

Footballguys view: Rypien had some excellent passes on Thursday night, but also made too many mistakes, which is to be expected. He did enough to hang around as a third quarterback with aspirations to be a backup, but Drew Lock could be back next week and the Broncos could also go with Blake Bortles against New England, so Rypien's 2QB/Superflex value is hanging by a thread.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien likely Week 4 starter    Tue Sep 29, 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien is expected to be named the starting quarterback for Week 4 against the New York Jets, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Rypien came in for the Broncos on their last drive and moved the team into scoring position before tossing an interception (targeted for Jerry Jeudy) in the end zone. He's a smart quarterback with good footwork but an average arm at best. The Broncos should try and run the ball more with an inexperienced quarterback making his first start. We'll see if OC Pat Shurmur shows more creativity against the Jets.

  Broncos | Denver fills out practice squad    Sun Sep 6, 04:48 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Rypien, WR Trinity Benson, WR Fred Brown, OL Patrick Morris, T Quinn Bailey, T Darrin Paulo, T Jake Rodgers, RB LeVante Bellamy, RB Jeremy Cox, OLB Derrek Tuszka, LB Josh Watson, S Alijah Holder, S P.J. Locke, CB De'Vante Bausby and DL DeShawn Williams were signed to the Denver Broncos practice squad Sunday, Sept. 6.

Footballguys view: Look out for Bellamy here in deep dynasty formats. He's built like Phillip Lindsay and runs like him too. Bellamy was a sponge in camp, learning as much from Lindsay as possible...and he performed well in practice too. Royce Freeman is likely gone in 2021 and Lindsay might be too. That makes Bellamy a player to watch.

  Broncos | Denver waives 17, cuts 3    Sat Sep 5, 01:37 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien, WR Trinity Benson, Juwann Winfree, LB Derrek Tuszka, RB Jeremy Cox, OT Darrin Paulo, S P.J. Locke, OT Tyler Jones, WR Kendall Hinton, OT Hunter Watts, LB Justin Hollins, OL Patrick Morris, S Alijah Holder, LB Malik Carney, WR Fred Brown, RB LeVante Bellamy and TE Troy Fumagalli were placed on waivers Saturday, Sept., 5, while CB De'Vante Bausby, OT Jake Rodgers and DL DeShawn Williams were released, according to source.

Footballguys view: Winfree had a groin injury for most of camp that kept him out of action. Bellamy looked really good in practice, kind of like a version of Phillip Lindsay (similar running styles), so the team will try to keep him on the practice squad.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien may be PS option    Thu Jun 18, 05:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien is not expected to make the final roster but likely will be a practice squad option if he cleared waivers.

Footballguys view: Rypien looked like a camp arm last year. He's a developmental quarterback the team could keep around on the PS. Drew Lock is the clear-cut starter and veteran Jeff Driskel was added this offseason to be his primary backup.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien back on practice squad    Tue Dec 3, 09:51 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Rypien (Broncos) was signed to the practice squad of the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: Rypien is a pro-style quarterback who was serving as the backup to Brandon Allen for a few weeks. With Drew Lock starting, the team made Allen the backup and have put Rypien back on the practice. He was undrafted out of Boise State this year and is a prospect we will continue to monitor but only in deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien to be added to PS    Mon Dec 2, 06:29 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Rypien will be signed to the Denver Broncos practice squad.

Footballguys view: Rypien was the backup to Brandon Allen, but with Drew Lock healthy the team wanted to make room for their 2019 second-round pick and potential franchise quarterback. They cut Rypien with the idea of adding him to the practice squad and here he is. Rypien is a good pro-style quarterback we will monitor in super deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Drew Lock activated off IR    Sat Nov 30, 02:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) on Saturday, Nov. 30, was activated off the Reserve/Injured list. In a corresponding move, QB Brett Rypien was waived.

Footballguys view: Lock is likely to start on Sunday against the Chargers. The team hasn't made that announcement yet, but Lock took 75 percent of the starter's reps in practice this week. The rookie second-round pick has a rocket arm and is quite athletic. We'll see if he can flash the signs that he's the Broncos quarterback of the future over the next five games.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien to be QB2 this Sunday    Wed Oct 30, 01:10 AM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien will be elevated from the practice squad to the active roster and serve as backup to QB Brandon Allen in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, according to the Denver Post's Kyle Newman.

Footballguys view: It's going to be the undrafted rookie and not the team's second-round rookie (Drew Lock). That's not as big of a deal as some want to make it out to be because Lock is still on Injured Reserve. Rypien has been running the scout team and throwing passes in practice. When Lock is activated, the team could release Rypien and put him back on the practice squad.

  Broncos | Denver adds to practice squad    Sun Sep 1, 06:45 PM

The Denver Broncos added CB Alijah Holder, QB Brett Rypien, DT Deyon Sizer, DL Ahmad Gooden, OT Quinn Bailey, WR Fred Brown and OT Tyler Jones to their practice squad Sunday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Rypien is a player we'll monitor in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's confident and accurate as a passer on short-to-intermediate routes. We'll see if he can develop on the practice squad for Denver.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien showing potential    Sun Jul 21, 09:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien impressed head coach Vic Fangio with his performance against the first-team defense Sunday, July 21. 'Brett, I think, maybe, he's got a future,' Fangio said.

Footballguys view: Rypien got a big bonus for an undrafted rookie and should be able to beat out Kevin Hogan to be the third quarterback, assuming second-round pick Drew Lock is ready to back up Joe Flacco.
