Report: Broncos favored to land Jared Allen

According to Vikings beat man Chris Tomasson, the Broncos are the odds on favorites to sign pending free agent defensive end Jared Allen.

Mike Garafolo says Denver will "make a strong push" for Allen, while Ian Rapoport adds that the feeling is mutual.

The former Chief, who will turn 32 next month, ranks 12th in NFL history with 128.5 career sacks.

Verner ‘definitely’ interested in joining Broncos

Report: Cowboys interested in Wesley Woodyard

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.

Report: Broncos expected to pursue T.J. Ward

According to Mike Klis, the Broncos are expected to pursue Browns free agent safety T.J. Ward.

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.

Broncos tender Harris, Unrein, Carter, Ihenacho, Marshall

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.

Additionally, the team tendered exclusive rights free agents Tony Carter ($730K), Duke Ihenacho ($570K), and Brandon Marshall ($495K).

Rosterbation: Looking forward at ‘backers

If you don't consider middle linebacker one of Denver’s biggest issues, please raise your hand. There will be men in white coats coming around to take you for a nice car ride soon...

We all know that the Mike has been problematic for Denver ever since Al Wilson went down with a neck injury back in 2006.

There’s been a laundry list of people who stepped in and did their best, but none were truly up to the job. I thought Wesley Woodyard was the best of the group (especially in coverage), but he’s a bit too small to hold up to the runs up the middle. That showed last season.

Report: Broncos to let Holliday walk

According to PFT, the Broncos have opted not to tender return man Trindon Holliday as a restricted free agent.

Had Denver tendered Holliday at the lowest (Right of First Refusal) level, his 2014 salary would have been $1.431M, a steep increase from his 2013 salary, which was $480K.

Instead, the boom-or-bust player will be free to sign with any team, for a salary that we believe could be as low as $570K.

Report: Jackson’s choice didn’t come down to money

Not defending #colts paying D'Qwell Jackson $22 mill/$11 mill guaranteed. But Denver, Tenn and Miami would have ponied up that much.

Jackson had visited Denver, Tennessee, and Miami, and had reportedly drawn interest from Arizona and Minnesota as well.
