  Broncos | Shaun Beyer financials    Tue May 4, 03:44 PM

Updating a previous report, TE Shaun Beyer's rookie free-agent contract with the Denver Broncos includes $125,000 guaranteed - $110,000 in salary and a $15,000 signing bonus.

  Broncos | Four UDFAs joining Denver    Mon May 3, 11:47 PM

Undrafted free-agent WRs Warren Jackson (Colorado State) and WR Devontres Dukes (South Florida), FB Adam Prentice (South Carolina) and TE Shaun Beyer (Iowa) agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos on Monday, May 3.

Footballguys view: Beyer followed up Noah Fant in college at Iowa but he's a different player from his predecessor. He's a tough, hard-nosed blocker who can help out with the ground game. Jackson is a huge target (six-feet, six-inches) and has a large wingspan to help him play 'above the rim.' He's a red zone threat immediately and should be angling to make the Broncos practice squad since their wide receiver room is jam-packed with talent.

  Broncos | Eric Saubert signs with Denver    Mon May 3, 05:02 PM

Free-agent TE Eric Saubert (Jaguars) signed with the Denver Broncos Monday, May 3. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Saubert has bounced around the league but can contribute as an "F" tight end who is an effort blocker. He has experience working under Broncos tight end coach Wade Harman from when they were both with the Falcons. The Broncos are thin at the position behind starter Noah Fant.

  Broncos | Jeff Driskel let go    Mon May 3, 04:49 PM

Denver Broncos QB Jeff Driskel was released Monday, May 3, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Teddy Bridgewater is there to back up Drew Lock (for now). Those two will split reps 50/50 for the starting position over the offseason. Driskel was supposed to push Lock last year but he never did that and didn't impress when he did make it onto the field.

  Broncos | Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater to share snaps    Sun May 2, 01:38 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock and QB Teddy Bridgewater will evenly share the snaps during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are going to have a training camp competition to see who is going to be the starter. Neither Lock or Bridgewater are exciting options for the Broncos, but this team wants to win with swarming defense and a strong rushing attack. The one who turns the ball over the least likely wins the job.

  Broncos | Two may miss start of camp    Sat May 1, 08:24 PM

Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) and CB Essang Bassey (knee) probably will not be ready for the start of training camp since they are recovering from torn anterior cruciate ligaments.

Footballguys view: Okwuegbunam was able to play in a few games last year before getting hurt. He has great chemistry with QB Drew Lock, but by the time "Albert O" is ready to return Lock may not be the starter. We could see Okwuegbunam being listed on the PUP to begin training camp and perhaps the regular season.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton doing well    Sat May 1, 08:23 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) is making very good progress in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Footballguys view: Sutton was on the verge of a breakout year before missing most of the 2020 season. The Broncos want to run the ball early and often, so Sutton's numbers may not be what they could be in a more pass-happy offense. Add in his quarterback may be Drew Lock, and you can see how Sutton might have to go to another team to play up to that enormous potential. Sutton is in the final year of his rookie contract.

  Broncos | Denver adds Javonte Williams    Fri Apr 30, 07:26 PM

North Carolina RB Javonte Williams was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 35th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Williams is a powerful back who runs with natural violence and instinct for the position. He'll work in tandem with Melvin Gordon, but Williams could take over in the backfield because he's an upgrade over the veteran. Fantasy GMs should love Williams if he gets the lion's share of the workload.

  Broncos | Aaron Rodgers going to Denver?    Fri Apr 30, 08:39 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is close to being traded to the Denver Broncos, according to 104.3 The Fan's Mark Schlereth. 'It's about as close to a done deal as can happen,' Schlereth said. 'Now it could fall through, but I've been told by a very reliable source that this thing is going down.' Schlereth wasn't told of any compensation.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Broncos can pull this off. With Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock at quarterback, they need a serious upgrade which obviously Rodgers would provide. This team won a Super Bowl with an aging Peyton Manning in 2015, and they could make a Super Bowl run or two...or more with a 37-year old Rodgers. Stay tuned.

  Broncos | Denver QBs folded under pressure last year    Wed Apr 28, 03:36 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock led the league with eight interceptions on throws under pressure in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. New Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater - then a member of the Carolina Panthers - was second in the league with seven.

Footballguys view: Lock and Bridgewater make up the Broncos quarterback room...for now. With the no.9 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, we'll see if the Broncos go ahead and select a quarterback to throw in the mix. If Lock and Bridgewater are it for the Broncos, then both need to be better when the heat is on.

  Broncos | Denver deals for Teddy Bridgewater    Wed Apr 28, 01:52 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater was traded to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick Wednesday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Broncos get Bridgewater for a few reasons. First, new GM George Paton was on the Vikings staff when they added him in the first round. Second, OC Pat Shurmur worked with him in Minnesota as well. Finally, the team needed a veteran presence to push their young quarterback. We'll see if that's Lock or if they add a quarterback in the first round on Thursday night.

  Broncos | Teddy Bridgewater an option for DEN?    Mon Apr 26, 06:37 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater could be a trade target for the Denver Broncos if the Broncos do not take a quarterback during the 2021 NFL Draft, in the opinion of NBC Sports' Peter King.

Footballguys view: If the Broncos do not select a quarterback in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft, then adding a guy like Bridgewater would make sense. Bridgewater has a history with new Broncos GM George Paton as he was with the Vikings when they moved back into the first round for him. He could be added for a Day 3 pick (most likely) and push Drew Lock for the starting job this season.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton contract decision coming soon    Sun Apr 25, 11:35 AM

The Denver Broncos will decide after the NFL Draft if they will pick up the fifth-year option on WR Courtland Sutton's rookie contract for the 2022 season, according to general manager George Paton, who had previously expressed interest in keeping him with the organization for 'a long time.' A final decision needs to be made by May 3, and if the option is declined, Sutton will become a free agent after the 2021 season.

Footballguys view: Sutton is in the final year of his contract with the Broncos in 2021. A second-round pick in 2018, Sutton was on the verge of having a breakout season when he went down with a knee injury in 2020. Now back and healthy, Sutton could have the breakout he was supposed to have and price himself out of range of the Broncos. They selected two wide receivers last year in the draft (Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler) just in case Sutton were to get away.

  Broncos | Drew Lock will need to compete    Thu Apr 22, 02:48 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock has a fan in new general manager George Paton, but Paton quickly added that the team still plans on bringing in outside competition for the starting job this offseason. 'We do like Drew Lock,' Paton said at a news conference Thursday, April 22. 'What we don't want to do is force (competition). We still have time. There's a trade market. We still have the draft. We're going to be patient ... not force it. But we do want competition'

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Lock was one of the worst starting quarterbacks last year and the team is looking for an upgrade. That will come through a veteran via trade (like Teddy Bridgewater) or via the first round in the 2021 NFL draft (Justin Fields anyone?). Either way, Lock will not be handed the job like he was last year. Let's see if he can respond to the added pressure.

  Broncos | Drew Lock reports for workouts    Mon Apr 19, 06:25 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock was one of about 20 players to report for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 19.

Footballguys view: Lock has been working out as much as possible as he prepares for a make-it-or-break-it season with the Broncos...if he's still the starter in Week 1. The team is in the market for an upgrade at the position, which means they may use a first-round pick on a quarterback in the 2021 NFL draft. Lock knows his days are numbered with the Broncos if he doesn't start playing better.

  Broncos | Dionatae Spencer signs tender    Thu Apr 15, 12:19 PM

Free agent WR/KR Diontae Spencer has signed his exclusive-rights tender to remain with the Denver Broncos, his agent announced Thursday, April 15.

Footballguys view: ERFAs don't have much choice as they can either sign the tender or choose not to play football. Spencer is a return man for the Broncos, and once in awhile he can be used on Jet sweeps and WR screens. With Courtland Sutton returning healthy this year, Spencer is no.5 on the depth chart at best.

  Broncos | Drew Lock working with Peyton Manning    Mon Apr 12, 01:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock has been working with former NFL QB Peyton Manning this offseason, according to OG Dalton Risner. Lock and Manning have been watching film during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Lock needed to get better this offseason when it comes to understanding what he's seeing on the field. He's got the physical tools, but his propensity to throw interceptions needs to be cleaned up. It might be too late for him with the Broncos if they move up in the draft for a first-round quarterback.

  Broncos | Denver had interest in Mitchell Trubisky    Sun Mar 28, 11:02 AM

The Denver Broncos reportedly showed interest in former Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky during free agency before he ultimately decided to sign with the Buffalo Bills, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: It's a pretty well-known fact the Broncos want competition (or a flat-out upgrade) for Drew Lock. They had interest in Matthew Stafford and thought they had him before the Rams pulled off that trade. They have been interested in Ryan Fitzpatrick, Trubisky and others but have not yet found the right guy. That player may come through the 2021 NFL draft but at the no.9 overall pick all the top QBs may be gone. Either way, Lock is in a make-it-or-break-it year for the Broncos.

  Broncos | Denver intrigued by Zach Wilson?    Thu Mar 25, 09:53 PM

Brigham Young QB Zach Wilson's pro day Friday, March 26, will be attended by Denver Broncos general manager George Paton and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are looking to upgrade from Drew Lock. They might add a veteran via trade (Gardner Minshew?) to compete with Lock in training camp, but they might also go for a rookie in the first round. They have the no.9 overall pick and Wilson should be off the board by that time. If they love Wilson, they'll have to move up to get him.
