Aqib Talib
News
The Dallas Police Department suspended its investigation of an alleged altercation involving Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib on Friday, according to the Dallas Morning News

The alleged incident occured in the early hours of April 8 at LUXX Nightclub. Police were notified there was an "active shooter" on site at the club and arrived to learn three men were involved in an altercation that resulted with a round of bullets being fired into the air. 

Talib's older brother Yaqub was reportedly involved.

Authorities later questioned Aqib and Yaqub Talib after finding them at a nearby strip club. 

Though the Talib brothers were never named by police, multiple Dallas media outlets reported they were under investigation.

However, based on the lack of evidence available after interviewing witnesses, the police department released a statement saying the investigation has been "suspended pending further leads."

Darian Stewart
News
Adapting to the playing conditions in Denver is proven to be difficult. Newly-signed safety Darian Stewart isn't concerned by that one bit, according to ESPN.com.

Broncos strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson warns all the new arrivals that is that athletic life a mile above sea level is very different and much drier than other locations. 

Stewart got the picture.

“You dehydrate pretty quickly, so you definitely have to stay hydrated," Stewart said. “Being up here and getting acclimated to the weather has been good. It’s going to help me when we go down south to wherever we have to play at."

Regardless of the new conditions, Stewart, who started 14 games last season for the Ravens, believes he will be the top guy at his position when the season rolls around.

“It’s my position, it’s my position to lose," Stewart said. "When I line up, I feel like at this level you’ve got to have confidence. When I signed here, I knew it was my job … I’m feeling well. Last year I was feeling well and it’s all about just staying consistent.’’

Stewart recorded 53 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in 16 games last season.

Ryan Harris
News
The Broncos have agreed to terms on a contract with offensive tackle Ryan Harris, according to a report from ESPN. 

This move is a necessity now that left tackle Ryan Clady is likely lost for the season due to a torn ACL that he sustained in practice on Wednesday.

This move brings Harris back to the organization he started his NFL career with as he played with the Broncos, which drafted him in the third round, from 2007-2010. 

Harris was with the Chiefs a year ago and started 15 of the 16 games he appeared in. 

Vance Walker
News
Defensive tackle Vance Walker has signed a two-year contract worth $5 million with the Broncos, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

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. 

Josh Furman
News
The Broncos have announced the signing of four of their 2015 draft picks, including all three seventh-round compensatory selections.

Those include quarterback Trevor Siemian, cornerback Taurean Nixon and safety Josh Furman.

The other signed player is fourth-round offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo.

Demaryius Thomas
News
Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is holding out of offseason workouts while he continues to negotiate a long-term deal with the team, but teammates Emmanuel Sanders and Peyton Manning have been keeping up with the star receiver, the Denver Post reports.

"One thing a lot of people don’t realize is when you’re playing on a one-year deal, there’s a lot of things going through your head," Sanders said. "As much as you guys want to say, ‘Don’t think about it,' of course it’s going to cross your mind because you’re talking about a lot of money at stake. When you’re playing these one-year deals, it’s a lot of stress on you. No matter how much you don’t want it to be, it’s going to happen. We’re all human."

Manning would like to have Thomas in workouts but understands the business aspects of his decision.

"I keep up with Demaryius. He’s my buddy," Manning said. "They got that business side of it to work out, but he’s been a great teammate to me, been a great friend to me since I’ve been here in Denver, so I keep up with him. Obviously want him to get back here as soon as possible, but we want what’s best for him, and he certainly deserves what’s best for him."

Thomas has started 16 games for three straight season, topping 90 receptions, 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns in each.

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.
Joe Don Duncan
News
With Gary Kubiak implementing his zone blocking scheme with the Broncos, the fullback will be a part of the offense.

Without a true fullback on the 2014 roster, the Broncos will shift one of their own to the position. According to The Denver Post, Juwan Thompson will move to fullback and compete for the starting spot with recently-signed fullback Joe Don Duncan.

Thompson was Denver's fourth-string running back a season ago as a rookie, but did get some playing time when injuries occurred to Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Duncan played college football at Dixie State.

This would mark a change for quarterback Peyton Manning, who would run a lot more plays under center with a fullback in the offense. 

Montee Ball
News
Montee Ball is third on the current depth chart among Broncos running backs, but he plans on landing in the top spot by the season opener.

A groin injury that forced Ball onto injured reserve last year limited him to five games and allowed C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman to leapfrog over him. Juwan Thompson is also in the mix, so Ball understands his predicament.

"C.J. deserves the No. 1 spot right now," Ball told The Associated Press. "I like coming in and being the underdog, just keeping my head down, my mouth shut and just working."

Ball averaged just 3.1 yards on 55 carries a year ago. But he seeks to prove he's better than that, which he must do to supplant the others and nail down the featured back spot.

"Every player should be saying, if they're second or third on the depth chart: 'I'm better than that player. I'm better than him," Ball added. "Because I believe that I am. But there's no reason for me to be chanting that and yelling that. I'm just going ... to work and work and work."

Trevor Siemian
News
The Broncos have announced the signing of four of their 2015 draft picks, including all three seventh-round compensatory selections.

Those include quarterback Trevor Siemian, cornerback Taurean Nixon and safety Josh Furman.

The other signed player is fourth-round offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo.

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 - Questionable for start of training camp
Sylvester Williams
News
Broncos third-year defensive lineman Sylvester Williams has much to prove heading into the 2015 season. He must show he can play nose tackle and that he can fill the void left by the departure of Terrance Knighton.

Williams has been working toward accomplishing those goals. He stayed in the area during the offseason to better his game and remain in peak shape. He has emphasized diet and shedding body fat as well as film study in an attempt to learn of areas in his game that require improvement.

"I already went into this offseason with a lot of motivation from within," he told the Denver Post. "I put a lot on myself to get stronger this year and come back with a better year."

Williams started 13 games last year and contributed to 21 tackles.

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.

Kyle Roberts
No Updates
Ben Garland
News
The Broncos have signed exclusive-rights free agent tackle Paul Cornick and guard Ben Garland, per the Baltimore Sun.

This season will be Cornick's fourth with the Broncos while Garland will play his fifth with the team.
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.
Taurean Nixon
News
The Broncos have announced the signing of four of their 2015 draft picks, including all three seventh-round compensatory selections.

Those include quarterback Trevor Siemian, cornerback Taurean Nixon and safety Josh Furman.

The other signed player is fourth-round offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo.

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, still recovering from three serious knee injuries, told the Denver Post that he's "limited" as the team goes through its voluntary workout sessions, but that he expects to be in the lineup at the start of the season. 

The linebacker fractured his knee twice and then dislocated it last year, playing in just two games for the Broncos thanks to the injuries. Instead of hurrying back to action, Trevathan is working on the mental aspect of his game. 

"I'm limited," Trevathan said. "I can't do too much movement, but it's good for me. I get to work on my mindset. I had a year last year to work on it, but now I'm really strong with my mind. I don't like making mistakes."

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of training camp
Shane Ray
News
Broncos sixth-round draft pick, linebacker Shane Ray was able to practice for the first time on Monday. 

Ray has been slowed by a foot injury that kept him off the field for the first rookie minicamp and OTA practices. 

"They wanted to make sure that when I started getting work that my foot was feeling good and it wasn’t going to have any setbacks," Ray said of the team's delay in clearing him to take the field.

Afterward, Ray had even more good news, as he signed his rookie contract with the team, per DenverBroncos.com. Ray become the eighth Broncos draft pick to sign.

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. 

Chuka Ndulue

Brandon Marshall
News
Broncos inside linebacker Brandon Marshall was able to lift weights with his teammates during Wednesday's OTA practice, according to the team's website. 

Marshall is still recovering from a foot injury which has kept him off the practice field thus far. 

"I think it will be fairly soon," Marshall said, "because I feel really good, honestly."

Marshall injured his foot in a December game against the Chargers and later played through the pain in the playoffs against the Colts. He said that watching practice hasn't been as much fun as being out there. 

"It's kind of tough, because while I'm out here, I need to pay attention; I need to watch more film, because when you do it more, you get a better feel for it," he said. "I have to learn through visual learning and just trying to soak up as much information as I can, because when training camp comes, it's going to come fast, and I've got to learn fast. I'll be all right.

Andre Caldwell
News
As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.

Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. 

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout. 

Zac Dysert
News
Brock Osweiler
News
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sat out practice on Monday, and he can expect it to happen more often than in the past.

New coach Gary Kubiak wants to manage Manning's practice snaps this year. The reasons are two-fold:  It will help keep the 39-year-old Manning fresh, and it will also give the coaching staff a good look at backup Brock Osweiler.

Kubiak said he was aware that Manning was "not a big fan" of sitting out practice, per the AP. "I just think it's important. I talked to him about it. You want guys that want to practice. They all want to practice. But you try to convince them, 'Hey, I want you there for the long haul and as healthy as you can be and as strong as you can be, and I also want to find out about these guys."

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 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."

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.

But you try to convince them, 'Hey, I want you there for the long haul and as healthy as you can be and as strong as you can be, and I also want to find out about these guys."

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
For a wideout with five 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, free agent Wes Welker might not understand why he remains a man without a team.

After all, he hasn't faded into oblivion statistically. He started eight games last year for Denver and caught 49 passes. He snagged a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2013.

"I want to keep playing," Welker told the Toucher and Rich radio show. He added that he would be open to rejoining the Patriots, for whom he had his finest seasons.

It remains to be seen how much he could produce at age 34 on a team without a premier quarterback. Welker has spent his nearly his entire career catching passes from Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

News
As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.

Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. 

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.

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. 

Ty Sambrailo
News
With Ryan Clady sustaining a torn ACL on Wednesday, the Broncos put in rookie Ty Sambrailo at left tackle during Thursday's practice, according to the team's website

Sambrailo was selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Colorado State. If he's the guy the Broncos have to go to with, he will need to not play like a rookie immediately. 

"He's not a rookie anymore," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after practice. "As of today he's about a four-year veteran."

Michael Schofield, a 2014 third-round pick, still remains an option for the Broncos at left tackle. For now, it appears Chris Clark will stay at right tackle. 

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 end DeMarcus Ware said he's not planning on the 2015 season being his last, reports The Denver Post.

"No. Not at all," he said. "I've got many years left."

Ware, 32, played in all 16 games last season and produced 10 sacks and 40 tackles. He said despite the years of wear and tear on his body, his training has allowed him to remain in good shape.

"I'm doing things right now I could never do before," Ware said. "I'm benching 315 fifteen times. Power cleaning 405 four or five times. I'm still vertical jumping 38 [inches]. My body has matured."

Gino Gradkowski
News
Broncos center Gino Gradkowski admitted that he has something to prove now that he's with his new team. 

The Ravens traded Gradkowski to the Broncos on Wednesday, with the move becoming official following his physical on Thursday. Gradkowski was Baltimore's starter in 2013 but was moved to backup duty in 2014. 

In Denver, he'll have a shot to start again. 

"(Last season) was very difficult for me, but I came out of it a better player and a better person. I have a chip on my shoulder now," Gradkowski said, via The Denver Post. "I feel like I have a lot to prove and I can't wait to get started with that."

Gradkowski is expected to compete with Matt Paradis for the starting center job. Gradkowski does have familiarity with what the Broncos want to do offensively. Coach Gary Kubiak and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison were both on the Ravens staff in 2014. 

"I think (Kubiak) bringing in players he had before will help bring the other players along, so that's a benefit, too," Gradkowski said.

Von Miller
News
Broncos linebacker Von Miller has changed his diet during the offseason and he said it's starting to pay off, reports The Denver Post.

"Sometimes you just have to step away from the burgers and stuff," Miller said. "It might not be hurting you, but it's definitely not helping you."

As a result of the diet changes, Miller said he's gone from 252 pounds last season to 242 pounds.

"I was in pretty good shape last year, but going to another level, it's always about how far you push yourself," Miller said. "I definitely feel like I'm in better shape than I was coming in to [organized team activities], and I'll be in even better shape coming into training camp."

David Bruton

Injury
Antonio Smith
News
Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith is being investigated for child abuse, TMZ reported early Thursday morning. 

The investigation is related to "multiple incidents dating back to 2010" in the state of Texas, according to the person making the accusation against Smith. The case was filed in Colorado in November but was moved to Texas. 

Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey confirmed to TMZ that the child abuse division is handling the case against Smith but said that no charges have been filed.

Healey later told the Denver Post that his office has been investigating Smith for several weeks. 

"It is true that the county sheriff's office has received a complaint from an individual," he said. "They are, and have been, conducting an investigation. ... My office is working with the investigating agency to review their information and further their investigation. There is nothing imminent."

The Broncos released a statement regarding the matter, reading, "Last night, we became aware for the first time of an allegation involving Antonio Smith. We are now in the process of gathering more information." 

Chase Vaughn

Reggie Walker
News
Linebacker Reggie Walker is all right with doing whatever the Broncos coaching staff asks of him. 

Walker, in an interview with DenverBroncos.com, said one of his biggest assets as a football player is the ability to play multiple positions as a linebacker. However, his primary position is at inside linebacker. 

"I’ve had to play in multiple positions throughout my football career; I can do a lot," Walker said. "I think I can do a lot very well. Hopefully I can come out here and show that and I’m going to be ready to compete."

Walker will earn his pay check on special teams. That was a role he played with the Chargers and one the Broncos will rely on him for as well. 

"Special teams is all a mindset," Walker said. "It’s all just about who’s willing to work harder and I’m going to work as hard as I can so I’ll be great at it."

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
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders believes the new offensive scheme in Denver will effect his numbers, accoridng to the team's website.

Sanders is working with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and coach Gary Kubiak to install the team's new offense and noted it's very different from last year's spread attack.

"You talk about going from a no-huddle offense to an offense that's huddling up, to an offense that is predicated off running a football and then throwing it. It's different," Sanders said. 

"It's a totally different set up, but I tell you what, the more and more I'm in it," said Sanders. "Because we can get the run game going and just use my vertical speed on cross routes and all these different combinations of routes is based off the play action, then I think the offense will be successful with Peyton Manning at the helm."

Sanders, who totaled 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns in 2014, doesn't think he'll accomplish the same numbers.

"Of course obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses, well I'm praying that it is, but obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses where you catch it and you're going to have two receivers catching over 100 passes," said Sanders. "Hopefully, my goal is really to try to get a 1,000 yards to just help this team win ball games."

Curtis Marsh

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."

Tevrin Brandon

Broncos cornerback Tevrin Brandon was hospitalized on Sunday after getting hit by the car while crossing the street, the team confirmed to the Denver Post.

Police believe that Brandon was struck by a Ford F-150 pickup in Belmar, New Jersey. The driver then fled the scene.

Juwan Thompson
News
With Gary Kubiak implementing his zone blocking scheme with the Broncos, the fullback will be a part of the offense.

Without a true fullback on the 2014 roster, the Broncos will shift one of their own to the position. According to The Denver Post, Juwan Thompson will move to fullback and compete for the starting spot with recently-signed fullback Joe Don Duncan.

Thompson was Denver's fourth-string running back a season ago as a rookie, but did get some playing time when injuries occurred to Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Duncan played college football at Dixie State.

This would mark a change for quarterback Peyton Manning, who would run a lot more plays under center with a fullback in the offense. 

Solomon Patton
News
The Broncos announced they claimed wide receiver Solomon Patton off waivers, according to the team's official website.

Patton is expected to be featured as a return man. Patton averaged 21.1 yards on 18 kickoff returns and 11.2 yards on 10 punt returns last season.

Bradley Roby

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.

Cody Latimer
News
Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer didn't see much action in his rookie season, partially because of the complex offense Denver ran, according to the Denver Post.

"It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer said. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower."

Latimer had just two receptions for 23 yards last season.

"They kept me going when I was at practice getting yelled at with people saying I didn't know what I was doing. They said repeatedly, 'Your time will come,' " Latimer said. "They said I had it in me, that I have to go out there and show the world. Part of my grind is making them look good."
