Good Morning, Broncos fans! We're just hours away from the start of the 2014 league year and free agency.
According to Mike Klis, Denver has been working toward re-signing wideout Andre Caldwell, hopes to do the same with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and will be in the running for Jared Allen and T.J. Ward.
Per Klis, re-signing DRC would preclude the Broncos from pursuing any other big name corners, meaning Darrelle Revis, Alterraun Verner, Antonio Cromartie, and others.
As we'd hoped, Klis adds that the team may indeed consider Darren Sproles, but only if there's money left over after they've made their defensive moves.
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).
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.
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.
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! With Champ Bailey out of the picture, there's no longer any doubt that Denver will be pursuing cornerbacks this offseason.
Mike Klis maintains the team will try to re-sign Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and he's sticking to his estimate of $6.5M-7M per year.
We're sticking to our opinion that such a number won't get it done - the salary cap has increased by more than 8% over 2013, and that has to change the calculus of free agency this year.
Meanwhile, Klis confirms Mike Chappell's report that Denver was prepared to pay D'Qwell Jackson a contract similar to what he got from Indy.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! We're now just two days shy of the annual legalized tampering period, and five days from the official start of free agency.
With Champ Bailey's salary about to come off the books, Denver has enough room to go on a shopping spree to rival their past two offseasons - when they added Peyton Manning, Louis Vasquez, Terrance Knighton, Wes Welker, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, among others.
There may be no part of the NFL year that's more exciting than this, games included.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! With the new league year set to begin in just six days, things are starting to heat up in Denver.
Expectations remain that linebacker D'Qwell Jackson will choose his next home by the end of the week.
According to the Miami Herald, Jackson has narrowed his options to Denver, Tennessee, Miami, and Indy.
He was expected to meet with the Colts either last night or sometime today.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! After hosting D'Qwell Jackson at Dove Valley on Monday, Denver is doing more work on its middle linebacker problem today.
The 2005 second-rounder out of USC began his career by starting 68 out of 70 games for the Seahawks, making the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons.
But a torn pectoral muscle ended his 2009 season, and he struggled through 2010 (-13.9 PFF grade over 1,250 snaps).
Good Evening, Broncos fans! Ahead of Monday's deadline, Washington franchise tagged linebacker Brian Orakpo, making them just the fourth team to use such a tender this offseason.
Transition tenders allow teams to match offer sheets for their own players, but without the possibility of draft-choice compensation, should they opt not to match.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! We're just a few hours away from the annual deadline for teams to use their franchise tenders (4pm ET).
So far, New Orleans (TE Jimmy Graham), Carolina (DE Greg Hardy), and the Jets (K Nick Folk) are the only teams to have tagged anyone.
