Report: Broncos may be only suitors for Allen

Report: Beadles to Jags

According to Cecil Lammey, the Jaguars have in fact landed Zane Beadles, to the tune of $30M over five seasons and $13M in guarantees.

Broncos re-sign Andre Caldwell

According to multiple reports, the Broncos have agreed to terms on a new two-year deal with pending free agent WR Andre Caldwell.

Klis: Don’t expect Beadles back

This isn't particularly surprising, but Mike Klis says Zane Beadles and Wesley Woodyard will be headed elsewhere once free agency opens. It's been widely speculated that Denver will replace Beadles internally by shifting around current linemen.

According to Klis, Beadles is deciding between Jacksonville and another suitor, while Woodyard has drawn interest from Tennessee in addition to New England (as mentioned earlier).
