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.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! At first blush, Jonathan Kraft's comments about New England's last contract talks with Wes Welker read like sour grapes.
Reiterating claims made earlier by his father, the Pats president told the Globe that Welker would have made more money had he stayed in New England.
As Kraft explained, the Patriots turned their attention to Danny Amendola due to Welker's high contract demands.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The salary cap jump to $133M is, of course, a great development for teams and players alike.
This is especially so for players like Eric Decker and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who are set to hit free agency in ten days.
In a perfect world, all players would immediately reap the benefits of the increase.
From a team perspective, the change would mean the Broncos could sign two or three more significant players than they previously could have.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Right from the get go, it was known that Denver had competition for the services of one D'Qwell Jackson.
We already knew that Jackson was visiting with Tennessee and may meet with Minnesota after his Monday stop at Dove Valley.
It now appears Arizona and Washington may be added to the linebacker's growing travel itinerary.
Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday that seven teams had contacted Jackson following his release by Cleveland.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Derek Wolfe spoke Wednesday about the frightening health scare that eventually ended his 2013 season.
The details are even worse than we'd all previously known.
Wolfe, who just celebrated his 24th birthday on Monday, says he was unconscious for 26 hours after the seizure-like episode he endured on the team bus.
Months later, doctors apparently still don't know what caused Wolfe's spine problems, although they suspect his preseason injury at Seattle has something to do with it.
