Broncos non-tender Steven Johnson

The Broncos will not use a restricted free agent tender on linebacker Steven Johnson, which will make him an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins. An original round tender, the lowest iteration, would have cost $1.542M.

Denver had two other scheduled restricted free agents, but already extended Aaron Brewer and is expected to non-tender corner Tony Carter. They tendered three of their four exclusive rights free agents, and appear to have non-tendered DE John Youboty.
