A trio of news items on the Broncos:
First, reserve tackle Chris Clark has followed running back Lance Ball in signing his restricted tender, leaving Britton Colquitt as the only RFA-tendered player yet to sign. Ball signed his tender on Monday, and Clark will likewise be paid $1.323M if he makes the final roster, but receives no guarantees. If he fails to make the team, Denver will suffer no cap penalties.
Scott, who previously visited the Eagles, was an understudy to current Eagles QB Nick Foles for three years before taking over as the Wildcats starter in 2012. Over his four years, Scott completed 61.4 percent of his passes for 7.0 adjusted yards per attempt, with 33 touchdowns, 19 interceptions, and a 133.0 QB rating.
Lastly, Peyton Manning threw to Wes Welker today at Duke, for the first time since Denver signed the wideout as a free agent. Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas also participated in the workout, and Eli Manning brought his own trio of receiver teammates with him as well.
Says Peyton of his first throwing session with his All-Pro slot man,
There's certain guys you just feel like you have timing with right away. He's a guy that has a great feel for how to get open, and understands route concepts and, of course, he played in such a sophisticated offense there in New England so he's a smart player. You can see why he's been such a productive player. He's intense. He loves to work.
