LaCanfora: Champ Bailey will get new deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/18/14) Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is expected to get a new contract in the near future to restructure his deal, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.
LaCanfora reports that there's "no way" Bailey is making $9 million in 2014, which would cost the Broncos $10 million against the cap. LaCanfora writes that the Broncos will look to sign him to a lesser deal at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
Bailey played in just five games in 2013 with 14 tackles and no interceptions. It was the first time in his career he failed to record an interception.

Chris Harris looking at second-round tender
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (2/10/14) A second-round tender is now a stronger possibility for Broncos restricted free agent cornerback Chris Harris, reports the Denver Post. Harris underwent successful surgery on his partially torn ACL last Thursday, with a source revealing Harris suffered no other ligament or cartilage damage, the report said.
Without the injury, the Broncos likely would have extended Harris a first-round tender, the paper said. A second-round tender will pay an estimated $2.1 million in 2014.

The Broncos DST was among the best in all leagues in 2012, and the unit should continue to dominate this year. The Broncos have a standout pass rusher in Von Miller and a ballhawking secondary that accounted for 16 interceptions. The Broncos DST also scored eight touchdowns, with two coming on special teams from Trindon Holliday, and they were among the league leaders at just 18 points per game on average. The best thing about the Broncos DST is their schedule since they get six games against rebuilding offenses in Kansas City, San Diego and Oakland. We consider the Broncos DST a No. 1 option, and they are worth drafting as the top unit in all leagues with a pick beginning in Round 11 or 12. (Updated 4/25/13)
