» Aaron Brewer, Broncos agree to four-year contract

Mar 05, 2015 - 5:51 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos have reached an agreement with long snapper Aaron Brewer on a four-year contract.

Brewer, who has been a Broncos long snapper since 2012, was a restricted free agent. The minimum tender for a restricted free agent is $1.59 million, which would have made him the highest-paid long snapper by nearly $500,000.

The multiyear contract will average considerably less on a yearly basis.

» The Trade That Rocked the NFL......Playing GM

Mar 04, 2015 - 3:23 AM - by WARHORSE
Ok, so Lesean McCoy goes to the North Pole and Kiko goes to birdland. I found this pretty interesting especially during this part of the offseason.

Which got me thinkin.....which isnt usually good. heh heh

If you turned on ESPN and you saw the "BREAKING NEWS" ticker tape going by and it started with "The Denver Broncos......", what would you hope to see?

What Bronco trade do you make if youre in Elways shoes to make this a better team? And while youre at it, what moves do you make in order to set this franchise up to win this year without compromising a strong future?

Julius Thomas?
Draft day?

I have to think about it myself.

But I like big offseason moves.......!!!!!

» David Bruton hopes his 2015 brings more than special-teams work

Mar 03, 2015 - 6:34 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- This is a difficult period on the NFL calendar -- even for those players who aren't facing the start of free agency next week.

Because for players who stay and endure, like the second-longest tenured current Bronco, safety David Bruton, the end of one league year and the start of another means plenty of goodbyes.

It's the nature of the business, but that doesn't mean Bruton or anyone else likes it.

"Oh, business sucks. It happens," Bruton said. "It's what I've seen for seven years: many faces come and go. Heck, I think [left tackle Ryan] Clady's the only consistent face that I've seen day in and day out.

"But it happens, and it's the sad part about the business. You build those camaraderies and those friendships and that respect, and the next thing you know, the guy's either not with you on the team, he's playing elsewhere, or he's not in the league."

» 2015 Free Agency megathread

Mar 02, 2015 - 3:13 PM - by VonDoom
Shouldn't we have one of these for all the big transactions this year? Free agency officially starts next week, but there have been some moves already that should be noted in one place.

Jacoby Jones, Reggie Bush and AJ Hawk were cut by their respective teams at some point last week. We already knew this, but I thought it was worth putting it here.

Franchise tag day has arrived. Our own DT was tagged, as were Dez Bryant and Justin Houston

Some other recent developments of interest:

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 10m10 minutes ago

A transition tag sighting! Dolphins placed transition tag on TE Charles Clay, per a league source. TE transition tag is $7.071 million.

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 4m4 minutes ago

Miami can match any contract offer to TE Charles Clay. No compensation if 'Fins choose not to match. "Poison pills" eliminated in 2011 CBA.

The Broncos had been rumored to be interested in Clay, so this may change their plans. Also:

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 23m23 minutes ago

Patriots placed their franchise tag on kicker Stephen Gostkowski, per a league source.

The interesting part about this is that they did NOT tag Devin McCourty, who will probably be coveted by a lot of teams.

» Miller, Ward see potential in aggressive 3-4 defense

Feb 28, 2015 - 3:45 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Von Miller and T.J. Ward discussed the opportunities that the new defensive staff and scheme can bring for them, particularly in regard to aggressiveness and their skill sets.
DENVER — When we last spoke to Von Miller and T.J. Ward, they were enjoying their time in Phoenix at the Pro Bowl. Gary Kubiak had just been hired as the Broncos' new head coach but there had yet to be any word on a defensive coordinator. They said they wanted someone aggressive, someone who could put them in the best position to win.

As it would happen, the Broncos would hire Wade Phillips, who is somebody who can do exactly that. Phillips is known for his 3-4 defense, which does well with the ability to hide blitzing players while the linemen focus on penetrating through the line.

That kind of creativity is something that Ward is quite keen on seeing, especially as a versatile safety.

"First off, we’re transitioning from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4, and that’s a lot different in itself," he said, breaking down the changes they'll be going through. "You have four backers and three D-linemen, but sometimes it can look like you have a five-man defensive line and only two linebackers so there’s a lot of things that can be done within a 3-4: disguising, blitzing and things like that. So I’m looking forward to what Wade Phillips has and his creativity with it."

» OTC: Broncos 2015 salary cap outlook

Feb 28, 2015 - 1:45 PM - by VonDoom
Over the Cap has been doing write ups on each team as they head into FA and the draft. Today was our turn. They advocate re-signing DT (to a long term deal ASAP), Franklin and Moore, letting go of JT and Knighton, renegotiating with Marshall and Miller, and releasing Caldwell and Clark (though they refer to him as Chris Chester in the article, for some reason, but I assume they mean Clark).

Still I would not expect the team to make a major splash in free agency. I think they will look for a cheaper option as replacement for Thomas, perhaps being linked with Owen Daniels as a short term contract while developing a younger player. I would guess they will look for depth along the defensive line and possibly linebacker, where the costs won’t be so high. If the Raiders release Antonio Smith he would be a natural fit in Denver, essentially a swap of Knighton for Smith, who should be very familiar with the team’s new staff. This is a good free agent group of right tackles and I could see that being an option as well.

In the draft it should be all about bringing youth onto the defense and bringing in a young receiver or tight end. The team can’t fal into the trap of getting old chasing a ring and then wake up post Manning with a roster of 30 year olds and no young players with experience to take over. Right now the window for many of the players on the team is an extra two years, at most, of peak performance. This is the time to begin the process of identifying the veterans that you can replace in 2016 and 2017 with younger, cheaper, and better options to help transition the Broncos into the post Manning era.

» Jones: John Elway has plenty to consider entering Broncos' free agency

Feb 27, 2015 - 5:10 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
In the four years since John Elway took over the Denver Broncos front office, he's earned the title King of March.

As general manager, Elway has attacked free agency much in the same manner he did an opposing defense when he was a player: He's fearless, sometimes bordering on reckless, but he often wins big.

His all-in gamble three years ago to lure Peyton Manning to sign with the Broncos was his front-office version of his legendary head-first helicopter spin.

Now for the first time in his tenure atop the Broncos' front office, the most significant free agent moves for Elway could be the ones he doesn't make.

» The Case for 28- Jake Fisher

Feb 26, 2015 - 5:15 AM - by Ziggy

Next up is OT Jake Fisher. You won't see him listed in the first round in too many mocks, but he's one of my favorite players in this draft. I think that we might look back 4 years from now and see that Jake Fisher was the best tackle of the bunch. The former high school tight end was converted to tackle his freshman season at Oregon. He spent his first 3 years playing right tackle, and was moved to the left side for his senior year. Fisher has the frame to add 10-15 more pounds for the pro game, but his strength was run blocking in his time at Oregon. He plays with a high motor and nasty disposition. His athletic ability is unquestioned.

Fisher blew up the combine. He measured 6'6 306, with an 82 inch wingspan. The 20 yard short shuttle is probably the best predictor of future success for offensive lineman. Jake had the 3rd best 20 yard short shuttle time for an offensive lineman in the last 15 years. He had the best 3 cone time among all offensive lineman, he tied for the 2nd best 10 yard split, had a 32.5 inch vertical jump, and posted the 2nd fastest 40 time. Keep in mind, this is all at 306. Fisher played his senior season at 299. I'd love to see this kid in Kubiak's zone blocking scheme.

How important was he to his offensive line? In the 13 games in which he played, the Ducks allowed 19 sacks. In the 2 games he missed, they allowed 12. His offensive line coach compares him to his former teammate who he also coached, Kyle Long. Long was drafted 2 years ago by the Bears and has made the pro bowl both seasons.
"Jake emulates Kyle in a lot of ways, especially when it comes

» Peyton Manning, Broncos working on revising contract

Feb 25, 2015 - 7:59 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos and representatives for Peyton Manning have been working on revising the quarterback's contract, according to multiple NFL sources.

Manning is scheduled to draw a $19 million salary in 2015 and 2016 — down from the $20 million he made in both the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Restructured contracts can get complicated, which could explain why there's been a perceived delay in Manning formally announcing his intention to return to play in 2015.

» NT Post Combine Draft

Feb 25, 2015 - 2:42 PM - by NightTerror218
First off I think Franklin, Moore, and Green are resigned. I know burn me for saying Moore's name but FS class is weak this year. Keep Franklin at G. Green is perfect dor kubiak system.

#28- Cameron Irving- C FSU
dude found his sweet spot when moved to C and was outstansing. Several NFL talking heads project him as pro bowl potential center (all BS but shows possible high ceiling)

#60 Eric Kendricks- ILB UCLA
Great instincts, thumped in middle. Need one with possible departure of Irving and Travathan injury issues.

#92 Jake Fisher. - OT Oregon
He is moving up boards with great combine. Conaidered a great ZBS RT.

4th comp pick - Kurtis Drummond FS MSU
Depth depth and more depth at FS. Push Moore for atarting position.

#156- Jalston Fowler- FB BAMA
Had a good combine might be out of reach here. But getting a real FB who can also run ball with good hands can help us.

#188- Blake Bell- TE OSU
He is moving up boards but is my sleeper pick for some TE depth. If he is not signed I would resign Tamme.

6th round comp pick- Damian Swann CB UGA

Can never have too many CBs. Kick Carter to the curb. ST help.

7th round comp- Trey DePreist ILB Bama

More depth at ILB and ST help.
