Broncos exercised CB Bradley Roby's fifth-year team option for 2018.
The $8.526 million option is guaranteed for injury only. The No. 31 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Roby has been a solid contributor, but not quite a star. Turning 25 next month, Roby still has time to improve. With Aqib Talib aging, GM John Elway would very much like Roby to lock himself into the team's future. Tue, Apr 18, 2017 01:12:00 PM

9 News Denver reports the Broncos are expected to pick up CB Bradley Roby's fifth-year option.

The option will pay Roby $8.526 million in 2018. Aqib Talib and Chris Harris get all of the ink, but Roby has quietly been a solid part of the Broncos' stellar secondary since being selected in the first round of the 2014 draft. Considering Talib turned 31 in February, the Broncos likely see Roby as the future at the position.

Broncos DC Wade Phillips confirmed Bradley Roby will see time at safety.

"We have a package coming in where he'll play some safety, and we'll work that in the next couple of weeks," Phillips said. The Broncos are intent on making Roby a full-time player after limiting him to nickel duties last year. Roby projects to start over FS Darian Stewart in base sets and remain at corner in sub packages.

New Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is intent on making second-year CB Bradley Roby a near-full-time player.

The Broncos have toyed with the idea of using Roby at safety, just to increase his playing time. He was a nickel corner last year behind Aqib Talib and Chris Harris. "It's just us saying, 'Hey, he needs to be out there,'" Kubiak said. "If that's how we get him out there full time, then that's something we're going to address. I don't want to do too much to him where we take something away from him, but at the same time he needs to be a guy playing 70 to 100 percent someway, somehow."

The Broncos have discussed giving second-year CB Bradley Roby some reps at safety.

Roby is physical and an adept tackler. The Broncos are trying to replace outgoing FS Rahim Moore. "He can tackle, he's tough, and that safety has to be a cover guy there," GM John Elway said of Roby. Denver's penciled-in starter at free safety is Darian Stewart. It sounds like a position they'll look to upgrade in the draft. Keeping Roby at corner long term still makes the most sense.

Broncos signed No. 31 overall pick CB Bradley Roby to a four-year contract.

The deal contains a club option for 2018. Roby was a 37-game starter at Ohio State. He posted a 4.39 forty, 38.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump at the Combine to boost his stock. Roby plays the run well and is a physical corner at 5'11/194. He'll line up opposite Aqib Talib, keeping Chris Harris in the slot.

Broncos selected Ohio State CB Bradley Roby with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Roby (5-foot-11 1/4, 194) started 37 games in Urban Meyer's secondary, intercepting eight passes with 7.5 tackles for loss. His 226 career interception-return yards rank third in Buckeyes history. Roby burned a 4.39 at the Combine, adding a 38 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Some draft analysts ripped Roby for getting beat on double moves by Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis last season, but NFL GMs and coaches are more concerned with attributes, and Roby has them in spades. He's a fluid, sudden mover with quick feet who plays with a lot of physicality, especially in the run game. If coached up properly, Roby could develop into a No. 1 corner. He should line up opposite Aqib Talib, keeping a rehabbing Chris Harris (ACL) in the slot.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby has pleaded guilty to having "physical control" of a vehicle while under the influence.

It's a non-moving violation, and Roby will complete a three-day alcohol educational class this week to resolve the matter. Two weekends ago, Roby was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while impaired. His blood-alcohol content was a mere .008. This is the last we should hear of the situation.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while impaired in Columbus, Ohio last weekend.

It's a misdemeanor. According to Roby's agent, his blood-alcohol content was a "negligible .008," and he was "very quickly released on his own recognizance." It's a bigger issue than it otherwise might be because Roby was accused of battery last summer, though the charges were eventually dropped. Roby is a first-round talent who could slide to day two.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby clocked an official forty time of 4.39 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He weighed in at 5-foot-11 1/4 and 194 pounds earlier in the week. Roby surprisingly stayed in college following a standout 2013 season, and proceeded to endure a rough 2014 in pass coverage with several draft observers noting Roby took too many plays off and began to "cruise." Roby now may fall into the second round, but is widely regarded as a first-round talent.
