Elway expected to start extension talks with Fox

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The Dolphins have made their first significant moves in response to the Wells Report.

On Wednesday, Miami fired offensive line coach Jim Turner and longtime head trainer Kevin O'Neill.

According to the scathing report, Turner was a central figure in the bullying of Jonathan Martin, while O'Neill appeared to have condoned racial harrassment of one of his assistants.

As for the offensive linemen involved, Richie Incognito and John Jerry are pending UFAs and not expected back with the team, while it's been reported that Mike Pouncey likely faces a suspension.

Meanwhile, head coach Joe Philbin - who presumably should have known what was going on in his toxic locker room, could have stopped it, and has escaped largely unscathed - is paying lip service by "taking responsibility" for what occurred in Miami.

Broncos

According to Mike Klis, John Elway is expected to start negotiations on a contract extension with the agent for John Fox.

Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker will host a football camp at Mullen High in May.

John Elway & Co. will presumably play a large role in a potential coloring book portraying Cleveland's biggest sports failures.

Wes Welker and his wife apparently brought a blowup doll with them on vacation. Whatever floats your boat, I guess...

News

Washington reportedly wants a second-rounder in a potential trade for QB Kirk Cousins; the NFL suspended TE Fred Davis indefinitely for violating the substance abuse policy.

San Francisco lowered the cap number for WR Jon Baldwin; the Jets are said to be working to re-sign TE Jeff Cumberland.

An infection to his surgically repaired knee could cost pending free agent Danario Alexander (currently of the Chargers) his 2014 season.

Combine/Draft

If money weren't enough, here's another reason the Broncos should let Eric Decker walk: at least according to Mike Mayock, this year's WR class is the best he's seen "in years." Of course, that doesn't mean the Broncos are going to draft a wideout, or that they'll hit on one if they do.

Doug Farrar/Chris Burke, Matt Bowen (overall importancedrills/tests), Bill Barnwell, Albert Breer, and Russ Lande offer pre-combine thoughts.

Farrar lists small school stars he expects to make names for themselves in Indy; Gil Brandt foresees a big week for UCLA guard Xavier Sua-Filo.

Tony Pauline ranks his top 150 prospects heading into the combine; Rob Rang updates his big board.
