Titans corner Alterraun Verner says joining the Broncos "would definitely be a good situation for me," during an appearance on SiriusXM Radio on Monday.
The 25-year-old corner did not indicate whether Denver had contacted him during the legal tampering period.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! We've apparently reached something of a lull until what promises tomorrow afternoon to be a vigorous start to the new league year.
Although reports of Denver's interest in pending free agents were relatively scarce this weekend, we fully expect the team to be active tomorrow.
The Broncos have loads of cap space (~ $25M including the recent RFA and ERFA tenders) and plenty of holes to fill (corner, safety, middle linebacker, wide receiver, left guard).
And as we've been discussing for months, they can easily free up more space as needed by cutting any of Chris Kuper ($4.08M), Jacob Tamme ($3M), and Joel Dreessen ($2.5M).
According to Cowboys beat man Calvin Watkins, Dallas has expressed interest in Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard.
Woodyard was miscast for Denver at middle linebacker last season, and his fellow former UK Wildcat, Danny Trevathan, proved better in Woodyard's old weakside spot.
The 27-year-old is said to be in search of a starting Will job elsewhere.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Although Denver has reportedly shown interest in free agent safety Mike Mitchell and is expected to go after T.J. Ward, one of their own free agent safeties is hoping to stick around.
Mike Adams, who started seven games at free safety after the frightening leg injury suffered by Rahim Moore, says he'd like to finish his career with the Broncos.
According to Adams, time spent with Jack Del Rio last week has him optimistic for a third year in Denver.
Ward, who turned 27 in December, was drafted 38th overall in 2010 by then-Cleveland GM and current Broncos pro personnel director Tom Heckert.
Denver has already signed a slew of former Browns players this offseason, but Ward would be the highest profile addition, by far.
Mitchell spent his first four seasons with the Raiders, who drafted him in the second round of the 2009 Draft.
Packers re-sign CB Sam Shields
The Green Bay Packers have re-signed cornerback Sam Shields to a four-year, $39 million deal that includes a signing bonus of $12.5 million, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
A source told Schefter that Shields will earn $30 million over the first three seasons—$15 million in the first year, $6 million in the second year, and $9 million in the third year.
FWIW, Shields graded out at +0.4 last year, while DRC was good for a +12.9 grade from PFF. Any questions?
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Once Denver made clear they were moving on from Trindon Holliday, and Chicago did the same with Devin Hester, we were intrigued.
However, as we noted, Hester has also had some major fumbling problems (4.64% of his career touches), albeit not nearly as severe as Holliday (8.27%).
The other problem with Hester is that he doesn't add a whole lot on offense. Of course, any contribution at all is infinitely more than what Holliday brings to the table.
Making matters worse, the soon-to-be ex-Bear would cost a whole lot more than does Holliday.
The 10 Teams That Should Dominate Free Agency
Ideal Free-Agent Blueprint: RB Maurice Jones-Drew, WR Sidney Rice, TE Michael Hoomanawanui, G Jon Asamoah, DE Jared Allen, MLB Daryl Smith, CB Derek Cox, CB Asante Samuel, CB Cortland Finnegan, KR Devin Hester
The thing is, with how well Elway & Co. have managed the cap, they can afford to get all of these deals done while still extending young stars like Demaryius and Julius Thomas.
As expected, the Broncos have tendered restricted free agents Chris Harris (second round, $2.187M) and Mitch Unrein (right of first refusal, $1.431M), and nontendered Trindon Holliday.
