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
The Broncos have signed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to a five-year, 70 million deal, according to ESPN. His contract calls for $43.5 million guaranteed.

Thomas' deal is similar to the one Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant agreed to Wednesday. Bryant also landed a five-year, $70 million contract, but his deal includes $45 million guaranteed.

Thomas and the Broncos were able to strike a deal before Wednesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for players under the franchise tag to agree to a long-term deal this year. Thomas was slated to play the 2015 season under a one-year, $12.82 million franchise tender.

"We are thrilled to reach a long-term contract agreement with Demaryius Thomas," general manager John Elway said. "He has developed into one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, and making sure he remained a Denver Bronco was a significant priority for our team.

"Demaryius is a special talent and an elite player who has also become a team leader during his five NFL seasons. We are very much looking forward to him playing a major role in the success of the Broncos well into the future."

The 27-year-old Thomas has made the Pro Bowl the last three seasons. His 111 catches in 2014 were a career best and trailed only Antonio Brown's 129 catches.

Thomas has had at least 92 receptions and 1,430 yards the last three seasons. He also had a career-best 1,619 receiving yards in 2014. The 2010 first-round pick has totaled 351 catches for 5,317 yards and 41 touchdowns in his first five NFL seasons.

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.

Montee Ball
News
The hiring of Gary Kubiak has altered the offensive focus of the Broncos from future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning to the ground game.

That is no problem for Montee Ball, who anticipates frequent two-back sets in which both he and C.J. Anderson man the backfield.

"With the situation right now, you got to use me and C.J.," he told the Denver Post. "I think you have to use two backs. It's a two-back system based on what he did last season."

Ball was referring to Kubiak's 2014 season as offensive coordinator in Baltimore in which he turned Justin Forsett into a productive back with a system that featured the running game. Kubiak used a two-back situation with Denver in 2005 (Mike Anderson and Tatum Bell) and Houston (Arian Foster and Ben Tate) in 2011. Both teams received strong production from both backs, but not necessarily in the backfield at the same time.

Kubiak, however, employs a stretch-run, zone-blocking scheme that depends on multiple running backs.

Ball, who was limited by injury to o 52 carries last season, might be optimistic in his belief that he is one of the top two backs on the roster. Ronnie Hillman and Juwan Thompson are also in the mix for playing time.

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.
Sylvester Williams
News
The starting nose tackle position is open for the Broncos. But Sylvester Williams has apparently taken the lead in that battle.

Williams knows the territory. He started 13 of 16 games a year ago. He finished with 17 tackles and four assists.

"It's exciting because going into the offseason for the first time I'm pretty much a sure starter," he told 9News. "My coaches have shown a lot of confidence in me and given me the opportunities that I need, so it's up to me to take advantage of those opportunities."

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips certainly isn't complaining.

"I think 'Sly' has done an exceptional job," he said. "I feel real good about him. ... I think he's really taken over the nose guard position."

Kyle Roberts

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 Broncos placed defensive tackle Marvin Austin on injured reserve Thursday. He has missed nearly all of training camp due to a groin injury.

Groin - IR. Out for season
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
After Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan separated his kneecap last December, the injury required a new kneecap, which Trevathan said was difficult to adjust to, reports the team's official website.

"I got somebody else's kneecap," Trevathan said. "It was difficult because it was a bigger knee… I love the scar, though."

Trevathan has not been able to participate in the team drills during offseason workouts, but he is expected to increase his workload in August.

"I'm moving. I'm shuffling. I'm doing our drills. I'm doing everything right now; I'm just limited on contact," he said. "I'm feeling good right now, I'm not going to lie. But I want to feel great before I go out there again. I think I owe this team and I owe this city."

Shane Ray
News
Broncos defensive end Shane Ray isn't shy about proclaiming what would make his first year in the NFL a success, saying that he doesn't see "anything less than Defensive Rookie of the Year" in his future, per NFL.com. 

Ray, the 23rd pick out of Missouri, has battled foot and toe injuries during OTAs and minicamp, but was confident in his abilities to make a difference on Denver's defense. 

"A lot of people might say that sounds cocky for you to say it right now, but I've always set high goals for myself, just like I did in college and that is something that I'm looking to prove, that I'm the best defensive rookie here," he said at the league's rookie symposium. 

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. 

Corbin Louks
News
Faced with a season-ending injury to wide receiver Kyle Williams, the Broncos responded by signing receiver Corbin Louks on Monday, the team announced. 

Louks has spent time on the practice squads of the Chiefs and Seahawks after playing college ball at Utah and Nevada. 

Chuka Ndulue

Brandon Marshall
News
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is still nursing a foot injury, but he said Wednesday he'll be able to participate in training camp, reports the team's official website.

"I'll be back in training camp. That's what the word is," Marshall said. "I should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp. I'm not sure about everything else."

Marshall suffered a mid-foot sprain last season, which required two screws inserted into his foot during the offseason.

"I haven't really done a whole lot on it," Marshall said. "I do a lot more in the training room. My surgeon told me it will probably bother me a little bit throughout the whole year -- nothing to keep me out."

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. 

Brock Osweiler
News
Broncos quaterback Brock Osweiler doesn't get a lot of reps. It's not his fault, he just happens to back up legendary passer Peyton Manning.

Osweiler has gotten a chance to participate more often this offseason because the Broncos are giving their veterans more off days, and he has been impressive.

"He has a lot more command," said running back C.J. Anderson. "He wants to go out there and play. He's been confident and comfortable, and he knows what he can do. He trusts his ability."

Osweiler, who has been Manning's backup for three seasons now, has continued to mature as an NFL quarterback despite only playing in 13 career games.

"I've always been impressed with Brock and his composure and how he commands the huddle," tight end Virgil Green said. "The more and more you play in the league, the more confident you get and the more composure you have out there."

Evan Mathis
News
The Broncos signed two-time Pro Bowler Evan Mathis to a one-year deal on Tuesday, the team announced.

The deal that brought Mathis to Denver is worth $4 million.

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 running back C.J. Anderson left the team's practice on Saturday after suffering a "shoulder bang," according to ESPN.com.

Coach Gary Kubiak said that Anderson wanted to return to practice after being evaluated, "but we just held him out the rest of the way."

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.

Jeff Heuerman
News
Broncos rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman is making strides in his recovery from a torn ACL, the team announced via their website.

Heuerman -- a third-round pick in this year's draft -- hurt his knee back in May, but is making good progress on his way back from the injury.

"I wouldn't call them big strides," he said with a laugh on Thursday, "not literally, because they're actually pretty small strides—but I'm making progress."

Heuerman will likely miss the entirety of this upcoming season, but that hasn't put a damper in his recovery.

"Each day’s a bigger step, which it kind of sounds corny and it kind of sounds like I’m just saying that, but it really is," Heuerman said.

Injury
Knee - Out for season
Marcel Jensen
News
The Broncos claimed tight end Marcel Jensen off waivers, the team announced.

Jensen had one catch for eight yards while playing with the Jaguars last season.

Kyle Williams
News
The Broncos placed wide receiver Kyle Williams on injured reserve, the team announced on Monday, two days after he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury at practice. 

Williams missed all of last season after suffering an injury at the end of Kansas City training camp. 

Injury
Achilles - IR. Out for season
James Casey
News
The Broncos signed free agent tight end/fullback James Casey to a one-year deal on Saturday, reuniting him with coach Gary Kubiak, per ProFootballTalk.com. Casey spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Texans under Kubiak, registering 752 receiving yards and four touchdown in 61 games (20 starts). He caught six passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns his final two seasons with Philadelphia.
Peyton Manning
News
Veteran quarterback Peyton Manning will not play in the Broncos' preseason opener against the Seahawks on Friday, according to a report from 9News in Denver. 

Manning, 39, will not play in the Broncos' first preseason game for the first time since signing with Denver in 2012. He is expected to play in the team's second game on Aug. 22. 

Brandon McManus
News
The Broncos released kicker Connor Barth on Wednesday. Barth's departure solidifies Brandon McManus as the starting placekicker for the Broncos.

Barth supplanted McManus as the kicker on field goals and extra points after 10 games in 2014. Barth hit 15 of 16 field goals down the stretch, but McManus was added back to the roster after Barth struggled on kickoffs in his first game. 

Although, special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis studied what plagued McManus as a rookie and feels his struggles were easily explained.

"He's just like any other player -- young," DeCamillis said Aug. 18, per the team's official website. "Unfortunately, you look at kickers and they should make everything, right, whoever they are. If they haven't done it a bunch yet, they're going to have those hiccups. You have to be able to come back from it and hopefully he did."

McManus connected on 9 of 13 field goals last season. He was 41 for 41 on extra points.

Owen Daniels
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. 

Omar Bolden
News
Broncos strong safety Omar Bolden wants to be the team's kick returner and he just let the world know it.

"That is my job," Bolden said. "I want it."

Bolden returned 13 kicks for 429 yards and a 33-yard average last season.

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. 

Sione Fua
News
The Broncos signed defensive lineman Sione Fua on Thursday and waived punter Karl Schmitz, per the Denver Post

Fua, who played for the Broncos in 2013, spent last season with the Browns, where he played in 11 games, registering 12 total tackles. 

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.

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."

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."

Ronnie Hillman
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is having a heck of a preseason. The fourth-year running back is averaging 7.5 yards per carry, as he has totaled 120 rushing yards on 16 carries through two games.

Although he is still listed as third on the depth chart behind starter C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball, he received second-team reps Saturday against the Texans and is making a strong impression on coach Gary Kubiak.

"He’s moved himself up. He’s had a really good camp," Kubiak said after Saturday's game, per the team's official website. "... He deserves more reps and if he keeps playing like that he’ll continue to get some more."

Hillman is coming off a Lisfranc injury in 2014, but after resting during the offseason, it appears the foot injury is no longer an issue.

"They have to be cautious with it," Hillman said. "They did a good job on it, and now I'm healthy. I'm just trying to pick back up where I left before I got hurt.

"In the spring, I started feeling a lot better, coming back and doing the football stuff and breaking the scar tissue. I started feeling a lot better."

Britton Colquitt

The Broncos have ruled running backs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) out for Sunday's game against Miami, according to Denver's final injury report for Week 12. The team also listed tight ends Virgil Green (calf) and Julius Thomas (ankle) as questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: David Bruton (ankle), Quinton Carter (knee), Ryan Clady (groin), Britton Colquitt (illness), Paul Cornick (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle) and Juwan Thompson (knee).

Virgil Green
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. 

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. 

Derek Wolfe
News
Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe has been suspended four games by the NFL for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy, the team announced on Friday.

Wolfe will remain with the team through training camp and the preseason, but will no be eligible to return after that until the team's Week 4 matchup against the Vikings.

Wolfe said that a medication he took triggered the positive test.

"During the offseason I took a medication which is on the banned substance list," he said in the statement. "The medication is not a substance which would enhance my on-field performance in any way and I genuinely was unaware that it was prohibited, but players are responsible for what is in their bodies.

"I will certainly exercise far greater caution in the future and will seek advice relating to the permissibility of any and all medications."

Wolfe recorded 35 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Broncos last season.

Injury
Suspension - 4-game suspension. Eligible to return Week 5 at Oakland
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

News
Wide receiver Cody Latimer was expected to play a role in the Broncos offense during his rookie season, but wound up catching just two passes. This year, he tells the Denver Post, he wants to make more of an impact in the passing game. 

"Last year was a disappointment to myself. I hated not being on that field," second-round picck said. "I took it as an oath of mine. This year I'm going to get on that field. I'm going to study extra and do whatever I need to do."

Latimer attended quarterback Peyton Manning's throwing camp and studied new coach Gary Kubiak's playbook in order to fit in when the action begins. 

"I didn't have the opportunity to get on the field because I wasn't doing my job," Latimer said. "This year, they'll know who I am."
