Broncos GM John Elway said franchise player Demaryius Thomas staying away from team activities will have "zero effect" on long-term talks.

Elway insists he would "like to get something done," but is perturbed by Thomas' absence. Either way, he says it won't give Thomas any sort of a leg up in talks. Elway believes Thomas' absence holds "zero value" for either party. It's an unusually candid tone for a general manager mired in what is shaping up as a typically testy franchise-player negotiation.

Broncos GM John Elway says he sees "absolutely zero value" in franchise player Demaryius Thomas skipping offseason work.

"To be dead honest with you, I see absolutely zero value with him being away from here," were Elway's exact words. "If he gets hurt here, he’s covered. If he gets hurt somewhere else, he’s not." While it's not exactly surprising that a general manager wants all his players to report for offseason work, it is surprising that Elway wasn't more diplomatic. At least as of now, a long-term agreement isn't appearing terribly likely.

The Broncos will move Louis Vasquez back to right guard after he closed out 2014 as the team's starting right tackle.

Right tackle, left guard, and center are question marks on Denver's line. Left tackle and right guard aren't, with Ryan Clady and Vasquez locked into the starting lineup. Vasquez is athletic enough to fit new coach Gary Kubiak's zone-running scheme, and has experience in ZBS from his time in San Diego.

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."

Updating a previous item, Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall is recovering from Lisfranc surgery.

Just as we suspected. Marshall suffered ligament damage and "bones were shifting." It's a painful injury that comes with a lengthy rehab and is prone to setbacks. Marshall hopes to be ready for camp, but that's not a given after he underwent surgery March 11. With Marshall and Danny Trevathan (knee) coming off injuries and Nate Irving signing with the Colts, inside linebacker is a need for the Broncos. They reportedly like Mississippi State ILB Benardrick McKinney.

C.J. Anderson expects the Broncos to employ a balanced offense this season.

Denver was quietly balanced last season, ranking 17th in the passing play percentage at 59.21 percent. That was a big change from 2013, when they ranked 4th at 70.59 percent. The more run-centric approach will certainly continue this year thanks to Peyton Manning's waning abilities and the arrival of Gary Kubiak. Justin Forsett, Arian Foster, Olandis Gary and Mike Anderson are some of the names that have blown up in the Kubiak/Shanahan zone-blocking scheme. CJA enters the offseason as the starter.

Cody Latimer says he saw so little playing time as a rookie because he didn't fully grasp Peyton Manning's offense.

It's not particularly surprising. The Broncos also had wideouts in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders that were simply better than Latimer. "It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer acknowledged. "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 worked out with Manning at Duke University this offseason and is in position to be Denver's No. 3 receiver.

Coach Gary Kubiak said the Broncos will remain a no-huddle offense.

The Broncos are expected to have Peyton Manning under center more this season, but have no plans to move away from their no-huddle attack. "We'll definitely be running the hurry-up," Kubiak confirmed. "Peyton's been the best at it for years, so that's a strength that we'll stay with." Manning projects to throw less as he enters his age-39 season, but is still locked in as a high-end QB1.

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall underwent surgery on his right foot last month.

Marshall missed two games in December with what the Broncos called a mid-foot sprain. He later returned for Denver's playoff loss. The mid-foot area and surgery are always scary when paired together because it normally means a Lisfranc issue. Marshall is tentatively expected to be ready for training camp.

The Dallas PD has suspended its aggravated assault case against Broncos CB Aqib Talib.

Talib was being investigated for assault after an incident on April 8. After talking to witnesses, the Dallas PD said it doesn't have enough evidence to proceed at this time. This story should fade away. Talib can move on with his life.

Broncos ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) said he's 100 percent healthy.

Trevathan appeared in just three games last season, playing on 100 snaps. He fractured his leg in August, and returned in Week 5 only to fracture his kneecap in Week 6. Trevathan came back again Week 15, but fractured his kneecap again and was done for the season. He and Brandon Marshall should handle inside 'backer duties in new DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.

Cody Latimer worked out with Peyton Manning at Duke University this offseason.

Earning Peyton's trust is a good idea, especially as Denver institutes a new offense. Latimer only saw four targets last season, but that's sure to rise with Wes Welker out of the picture. Despite immense physical tools, we remain skeptical Latimer will see enough 2015 opportunity for stable WR3 value.

Broncos OLB Von Miller said he's "pretty excited" about the switch to the 3-4 defense.

Miller was a 3-4 edge rusher at Texas A&M before being drafted into the Broncos' 4-3 as the No. 2 overall pick in 2011. Coming off a December 2013 torn ACL, Miller appeared in all 16 games last season and ran away as PFF's top-ranked 4-3 pass-rushing outside linebacker. He would have been the No. 2-ranked 3-4 edge rusher behind Justin Houston. Miller has dropped 10 pounds this offseason and should be a big beneficiary under new DC Wade Phillips.
Apr 15 - 2:14 PM

Emmanuel Sanders said Cody Latimer is a "special player" and thinks "this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene."

Latimer is drawing rave reviews from virtually everyone in the organization and is entrenched as the No. 3 wideout. He'll play outside in three-wide formations, with Sanders kicking into the slot. However, we'd be more excited about a statistical leap if Gary Kubiak didn't prefer "12" formations and the Broncos weren't planning on reducing Peyton Manning's volume. Latimer's snap and target count are a concern.

Broncos coaches have informed Emmanuel Sanders that he will see more action at slot receiver this year.

Sanders has experience in the slot from his Pittsburgh days. He dabbled there last year with Denver, but primarily played the old Marvin Harrison "Z" role in Peyton Manning's offense. Sanders is certainly quick enough to win in the slot, though his Average Depth of Target may fall this season. After being a steal in 2014 fantasy drafts, Sanders may be a bit overvalued in 2015.
