Walker has played for the Falcons, Raiders and Chiefs. The 27-year-old has registered 138 total tackles and 10.0 sacks during his seven years in the NFL. 

Demaryius Thomas
News
Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is working out in Atlanta and will not attend the team's offseason program, ESPN reported

Thomas also doesn't plan to work out at Duke with QB Peyton Manning. 

Thomas received the franchise tag from the Broncos. He said he hoped a new deal got worked out. "I want it to," he added

"I'm getting getting my body right, still working through a little soreness in my Achilles, but I could run routes," Thomas said

Corey Nelson
News
The Broncos have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's game against the 49ers: running back Montee Ball (groin), wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, linebacker Shaquil Barrett, guard Ben Garland, tackle Michael Schofield and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein.

The Broncos are very healthy heading into Week 7, with Ball the only player on the active roster missing the game due to injury. All the team's players listed as probable on the final injury report are active, including running back Juwan Thompson (knee), linebacker Corey Nelson (hamstring), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and defensive backs Omar Bolden (groin), David Bruton (ankle) and Chris Harris (knee).

Isaiah Burse
News
The Broncos have promoted kicker Brandon McManus from their practice squad to the 53-man active roster and released punt returner Isaiah Burse on Saturday, according to the Denver Post.

McManus lost his job to Connor Barth in Week 13, after connecting on just 9 of 13 field goal attempts this season. Barth is expected to continue handling field goal duties, while McManus is expected to handle kickoffs for the Broncos.

Danny Mason
No Updates
Quinton Carter
News
The Broncos made several roster moves on Saturday, according to the Denver Post. The Broncos placed running back Montee Ball (groin) and safety Quinton Carter (knee) on season-ending injured reserve in order to clear roster spots for linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee) on the 53-man active roster and tight end Dominique Jones on the practice squad.

Montee Ball
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak declared that C.J. Anderson was the team's starting running back entering OTAs. 

"He made a big jump as a player, and I think he's earned the right to walk in to the offseason program -- the OTAs -- and line up as our starter," Kubiak said, per DenverBroncos.com. "But he's got to continue to earn it on a daily basis. I think he's shown he has all the ability to be an excellent starter in this league, so we're really looking forward to working with him."

Anderson rushed for 849 yards and eight touchdowns last season, most coming late in the season, after Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman went down to injury. 

"All those guys are young. I think all three of those guys ... have all kind of had their little spurts of success with the club when they've had their opportunity," Kubiak said. "But they're all young. Who's going to be the bell cow, who's going to play every down, who's going to be the three-down player, they've got to sort that out. C.J. has shown the flashes of doing that."

Injury
Groin - IR. Out for season
Jordan Norwood
News
Broncos wide receiver Jordan Norwood (knee) and Jamar Chaney (hamstring) were placed on the injured reserved list Monday, ESPN.com reports.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Sylvester Williams
News
With free agency approaching for defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, Broncos general manager John Elway spoke highly of Sylvester Williams -- Knighton's possible replacement -- during Thursday's combine press conference, per the Denver Post.

"We still like Sylvester, we think there's still a lot of potential there, and we are not sure that he has scratched it yet. If there's any guy that can get it out of our players it's our new defensive line coach Bill Kollar," Elway said. "So Sylvester is going to get tested, and will get pushed. And I think it will be a good thing for Sylvester."

Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2013, registered 21 tackles (17 solo) last season for the Broncos. He had two sacks his rookie year.

Connor Barth
News
Broncos kicker Connor Barth made both of his field goal attempts as well as his only extra point attempt in Denver's 24-13 loss to the Colts Sunday. 

Barth made field goals from 45 and 41 yards respectively. He finishes the year going 17 of 18 on field goals and 16 of 16 on extra points in six games as a Bronco.

Ben Garland
News
The Broncos have listed Montee Ball, Quinton Carter, Virgil Green, Kapri Bibbs , Steven Johnson, Ben Garland and Michael Schofield as inactive Week 9 against the Patriots. 

Ball is still dealing with a groin injury, and won't play. Carter, Green and Johnson all entered the contest considered questionable. All three were ruled out Sunday. 

Shelley Smith
News
The Broncos have reportedly agreed to terms with offensive guard Shelley Smith, according to the Denver Post. The team later confirmed the report. Smith was cut by the Dolphins last week after just one season. The deal with the Broncos is reportedly for two years and worth $5.65 million, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The five-year veteran has only played in three seasons due to injury and only started three of 11 games in 2014 for Miami. He also visited with the Seahawks before talking with Denver.

Marvin Austin
News
The following players have been listed as inactive for the Broncos in Week 12 against the Dolphins: Montee Ball, Julius Thomas, Ronnie Hillman, Tony Carter, Chris Clark, Michael Schofield and Marvin Austin.
Todd Davis
News
Only two injured Broncos have been ruled out for the game Sunday against St. Louis. They are running back Ronnie Hillman (foot) and tight end Virgil Green (knee), who had been deemed doubtful.

The healthy scratches are wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, running back Kapri Bibbs, linebacker Todd Davis and offensive tackle Michael Schofield.

Danny Trevathan
News
Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan had surgery on his left leg Tuesday, reports ESPN.com. Trevathan missed 13 games this season due to separate fractures in the leg and a dislocated left kneecap.

He was the team's leading tackler in 2013.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Kerry Taylor
News
The Cowboys have added wideout Kerry Taylor to the practice squad.

Taylor had recently been with the Jaguars, but was waived Tuesday. He didn't last long, as Dallas decided to scoop him up. Taylor appeared in seven games last season, catching 19 passes. 

Gerald Rivers
News
The Broncos have re-signed defensive end Gerald Rivers to their practice squad. Rivers was released by the Broncos Dec. 4 to sign kicker Brandon McManus. 

Rivers has been on the Dolphins and Jaguars practice squads over the last two years as well. 

Will Montgomery
News
The Broncos will head into their divisional round playoff matchup with the Colts relatively healthy. Defensive tackle Mitch Unrein (knee) and linebacker Brandon Marshall (foot) are considered questionable. Quanterus Smith has been declared out with a knee injury.

David Bruton (concussion/neck), Paul Cornick (toe), Orlando Franklin (concussion), Peyton Manning (thigh), Will Montgomery (knee), Aqib Talib (Achilles), Julius Thomas (ankle), Demaryius Thomas (ankle/finger), Juwan Thompson (hip/knee), T.J. Ward (neck), and Kayvon Webster (shoulder) are all considered probable for Sunday's game.

The Broncos are currently 7-point favorites against the Colts.

Brandon Marshall
News
Jets quarterback Geno Smith has seen far more downs than ups in two NFL seasons. Entering his third year, Smith will be asked to produce far more, especially now that he has receiver Brandon Marshall in town. 

Marshall, in an interview with the New York media on Friday, was complimentary of the young quarterback, who has yet to throw more touchdowns than interceptions in a single season. 

“I just think he has a drive and a passion that a lot of people don’t see,” Marshall said, via the New York Post. “From my conversations with him so far, it’s really got me excited.”

Smith only managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago. He was sometimes pulled in favor of backup Michael Vick in games where he struggled mightily. Assuming Smith is the starter in 2015, he won't have as much leeway with new coach Todd Bowles at the helm. 

Andre Caldwell
News
In an uncharacteristically meager offensive performance by the Broncos in St. Louis on Sunday, several skill position players provided small contributions.

Included were wide receiver Andre Caldwell and tight end Jacob Tamme, who managed 31 yards receiving apiece while Wes Welker added just 28 on four receptions. Running back Juwan Thompson chipped in with one catch for five yards.

Zac Dysert
News
Brock Osweiler
News
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said that the team plans to use quarterback Brock Osweiler to spell Peyton Manning more often this season, according to NFL.com.

Kubiak told reporters at the NFL meetings Tuesday that he has spoken with Manning about decreasing his reps, allowing him to rest up and stay fresh heading into the postseason.

"I want to do what's best for him," Kubiak explained, via The Denver Post. "I went through the same process with John (Elway) late in his career, and it was a battle for me and Mike (Shanahan) to do some things with him."

Osweiler, 24, has never started a game for the Broncos after being drafted in 2012. Though he is not a threat to start over Manning, he will see more time on the practice field, in meetings and during games in which the team has a big lead.

Kenny Anunike

Elbow - IR. Out for season
No Updates
Kapri Bibbs
News
The Broncos elevated running back Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster on Saturday, the Denver Post reports. In a corresponding move, the Broncos waived running back Kapri Bibbs.

Denver needed some depth at running back with Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman both ruled out for Week 12 with injuries. Stewart is expected to be the No. 3 running back Sunday at home against Miami.

Louis Vasquez
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is active Week 9 against the Patriots.

Hillman was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. He was never really a candidate to sit. The team will also have Lamin Barrow, Omar Bolden, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon McManus, Juwan Thompson, Louis Vasquez and Kayvon Webster. All seven players were listed as probable coming into the contest. 

Lerentee McCray
News
Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and running back C.J. Anderson (ankle) are active for the game against Buffalo after being listed as probable.

Also suiting up for Denver are offensive tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (elbow), linebacker Lerentee McCray (illness), center Will Montgomery (knee), defensive end Quanterus Smith (ribs), cornerback Aqib Talib (hamstring), tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).

Tony Carter
News
The Broncos tendered restricted free agent cornerback Tony Carter, enabling Denver to match any offer he receives, reports the team's website. Playing in eight games last season, Carter had five tackles and one pass knocked down.

His season highlight came against the Raiders when he recovered a fumble and returned it for a touchdown.

Matt Paradis
News
C.J. Anderson
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak saw enough of running back C.J. Anderson from last season's film to name him the starter heading into offseason programs, according to CBSSports.com Senior Fantasy Writer Jamey Eisenberg. 

Anderson had the best success of any of the Broncos' running backs in 2014, running for 849 yards and eight touchdowns after assuming the starting role midway through the season. 

Competing for playing time in the backfield will once again be Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. 

Historically, Kubiak's offenses have been effective in running the football. As the Ravens offensive coordinator in 2014, Kubiak led the rushing attack to an average of 126.2 yards per game, which ranked eighth in the NFL. 

Chris Harris
News
The Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris have agreed on a five-year contract extension worth $42.5 million, the Denver Post reports.

The two sides opened contract talks last month but a deal appeared to be on life support before general manager John Elway became personally involved in the discussions. Harris ranks as the No. 1 cornerback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus, and passers have managed just a 46.9 quarterback rating when challenging the Denver cornerback. He's also been in the top 10 of the same rating system among all cornerbacks in 2012 and 2013.

Nathan Palmer
News
The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
Kyle Williams
News
The Chiefs have announced their final round of cuts and other moves to reach the league-mandated roster of 53 players.

Among the offensive players let go are fullback Jordan Campbell, wide receivers Fred Williams and Mark Harrison, guard Ricky Henry, tackle J'Marcus Webb and running back Charcandrick West.

The defensive players gone from the roster are safeties Jonathon Amaya and Malcolm Bronson, linemen Dominique Hamilton, Kyle Love and Kona Schwenke, linebackers Alonzo Highsmith, Devan Walker and Nico Johnson and cornerbacks Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Van Dyke .

The Chiefs have also placed Tyler Bray and Kyle Williams on IR and Mike Catapano on the non-football injury list.

Peyton Manning
News
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak wants to make sure that all of his players are comfortable with the new offensive playbook, including quarterback Peyton Manning, reports ESPN.

“I think you prepare to help him call that game throughout the course of the week," Kubiak said. “A lot of people put emphasis on him calling plays at the line, but you’ve also prepared to do that throughout the course of the week, so you, as a coach, 'Here’s what I think is best in that situation.' In a lot of ways you’re still working together. You’re just going about it a different way."

“You never want to put a player in a position where he’s doing something he’s uncomfortable with," Kubiak said. “One of things about having a veteran, especially like Peyton, he’s going to let you know, 'This is what I do best and this is what I feel comfortable with.' That’s what you need to go do as a coach. You might tweak things here or there that you think may help, but you’re never going to take him out of his comfort zone and what he feels like he does best.”

Manning, 39, recently took a pay cut of $4 million to help clear salary cap space for the team.

Brandon McManus
News
The Broncos have promoted kicker Brandon McManus from their practice squad to the 53-man active roster and released punt returner Isaiah Burse on Saturday, according to the Denver Post.

McManus lost his job to Connor Barth in Week 13, after connecting on just 9 of 13 field goal attempts this season. Barth is expected to continue handling field goal duties, while McManus is expected to handle kickoffs for the Broncos.

Wes Welker
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters during his combine press conference on Wednesday that wide receiver Wes Welker has no plans to retire this offseason, per NFL.com.

Welker was reportedly weighing retirement, but he rebuffed those rumors when he told the Denver Post Monday that he's "getting ready for 2015."

Welker will become an unrestricted free agent in March, and Kubiak added that he would "love to have him back" with the Broncos. The 33-year-old, who has dealt with a number of concussions during his career, is coming off a season in which he hauled in 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns. He has 890 catches for 9,822 yards in his 12-year career.

Owen Daniels
News
Tight end Owen Daniels and the Broncos have reached an agreement on a three-year, $12million contract, according to the Denver Post.

After losing tight end Julius Thomas to the Jaguars, the Broncos are signing Daniels to man the position.

Daniels spent his first eight years with the Texans, he then played for the Ravens last year. The 32-year-old finished the 2014 season with 48 catches for 527 yards and four touchdowns.

Omar Bolden
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is active Week 9 against the Patriots.

Hillman was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. He was never really a candidate to sit. The team will also have Lamin Barrow, Omar Bolden, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon McManus, Juwan Thompson, Louis Vasquez and Kayvon Webster. All seven players were listed as probable coming into the contest. 

Shaquil Barrett
News
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived linebacker Shaquil Barrett.
Lamin Barrow
News
The Broncos will have both Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.

The team will also have nearly all of their probable players. That means C.J. Anderson, Lamin Barrow, David Bruton Jr., Ryan Clady, Chris Clark, Ronnie Hillman, Will Montgomery, Manny Ramirez, Jacob Tamme, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Kayvon Webster and Derek Wolfe will all attempt to play. 

Aaron Brewer
News
The Broncos have re-signed long snapper Aaron Brewer to a four-yeal deal Thursday, according to the team's official website. The deal will keep him with the team through 2018.

The former undrafted free agent has been with the Broncos for three years.  Since being signed, he's played on every punt, field goal and extra point snap.

DeMarcus Ware
News
Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is hoping to run a more aggressive defense in 2015, according to ESPN.

"We're aggressive," Phillips said. "Defensive players, they’re aggressive by nature. I think you take something away from them when you don’t let them be." Phillips clarified that he won't necessarily get blitz-happy, but said he would have an "attack defense. That’s the way players like to play," Phillips said. "You get the best results out of that and I think you play the best that way so we’ll be that way."

Phillips' strategy should be a welcome addition in Denver. Former defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was often criticized for the team's lack of aggression on defense. Phillips already has the support of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware.

"This defense has the players to do it, we need just to get in the lab and figure out how to be better," Miller said. "Because we had moments where we showed what we can do, but we didn’t do it enough, myself included, I know that."

Ware added, "we feel like there’s more we can do. We want every play to be hard on the quarterback."

Manny Ramirez
News
The Broncos will have both Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.

The team will also have nearly all of their probable players. That means C.J. Anderson, Lamin Barrow, David Bruton Jr., Ryan Clady, Chris Clark, Ronnie Hillman, Will Montgomery, Manny Ramirez, Jacob Tamme, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Kayvon Webster and Derek Wolfe will all attempt to play.

"This defense has the players to do it, we need just to get in the lab and figure out how to be better," Miller said. "Because we had moments where we showed what we can do, but we didn’t do it enough, myself included, I know that."

Ware added, "we feel like there’s more we can do. We want every play to be hard on the quarterback."

Michael Schofield
News
Broncos offensive lineman Michael Schofield is ready to come in and compete for a starting job this season, reports the Denver Post.

After not dressing for a single game as a rookie, Schofield added weight and he looks forward to fighting for a starting job.

"I am going in there with that mentality. In the NFL everybody is competing," Schofield said during a road trip to see family in Illinois. "They are looking for someone to step up and take over. I want to make that jump."

The third-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2014 struggled with weight issues, but he is now up to 305 pounds. He also recognized that his pass protection needs improvement.

"Personally, I felt there were reasons I wasn't out there (for games). I wasn't consistent enough in pass pro (protection). And my weight was really fluctuating," Schofield said.

Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak believes that the team's zone-blocking scheme can help Schofield elevate his game, and Schofield agrees.

"We like the Schofield kid, so we'll see. We think he's got some flexibility (in where he can play)," Kubiak said. "It will be very competitive."

"I feel like I am better suited for this," Schofield said. "You have to be able to reach block, and I feel the steps required fit me better."

Emmanuel Sanders
News
Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.

Ronnie Hillman
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak declared that C.J. Anderson was the team's starting running back entering OTAs. 

"He made a big jump as a player, and I think he's earned the right to walk in to the offseason program -- the OTAs -- and line up as our starter," Kubiak said, per DenverBroncos.com. "But he's got to continue to earn it on a daily basis. I think he's shown he has all the ability to be an excellent starter in this league, so we're really looking forward to working with him."

Anderson rushed for 849 yards and eight touchdowns last season, most coming late in the season, after Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman went down to injury. 

"All those guys are young. I think all three of those guys ... have all kind of had their little spurts of success with the club when they've had their opportunity," Kubiak said. "But they're all young. Who's going to be the bell cow, who's going to play every down, who's going to be the three-down player, they've got to sort that out. C.J. has shown the flashes of doing that."

Bradley Roby
News
The Broncos could be changing course on how they want to use 2014 first-round pick Bradley Roby on defense. 

Drafted as a cornerback out of Ohio State, the Broncos are considering moving Roby to free safety, general manager John Elway said, via The Denver Post

"He can tackle he's tough and that safety has to be a cover guy there," Elway said. "There are a lot of different combinations you need to play because the game is changing. Instead of having a strong safety, you want both of them to play center field."

Roby had 65 tackles and two interceptions as a rookie in 2014. 

Josh Bush

Cody Latimer
News
The Broncos new head coach Gary Kubiak expects second-year wide receiver Cody Latimer to see more playing time in 2015, per the team's official website.

"I think it’s time for him to make a big jump, not just a little jump," Kubiak said from the media availability at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. "I think it’s time for him to make a big jump and how we end up being built at receiver—I know that [WR] Wes [Welker] is still [a] free [agent] and there are some things that still need to pan out—but obviously his play time is fixing to pick up and it needs to pick up. We need him to make a big jump."

Kubiak thought highly of the young wideout when he was entering the 2014 draft.

"He came by the office the other day. I thought a lot about him coming out [of college]. I spent a lot of time with him in Baltimore," Kubiak said, reflecting on last year's draft. "We were very interested in him going into the draft, so I knew him very well. It’s funny. I told him in Baltimore, ‘Hey, we might not end up with you, but our paths may cross some day.’ He walked into my office and said, ‘Hell, I didn’t know it would be this quick.’ He’s a fine player. He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice."

As a rookie, Latimer finished the season playing in eight games with only two receptions for 23 yards.
