The Broncos have asked P Britton Colquitt to accept a pay cut.

If Colquitt doesn't accept, he will likely be released. The Broncos would then roll with rookie Riley Dixon at punter. Once one of the NFL's highest-paid punters, Colquitt is entering a contract year. He is owed $3.25 million.

Cody Latimer (knee) will undergo an MRI on Sunday.

The third-year wideout got hurt on a block in Saturday's preseason game. Latimer downplayed the injury, though beat writer Troy Renck said he saw Latimer walking with a noticeable limp. Latimer's Week 1 status is now in flux.

Mark Sanchez didn't play in Saturday's preseason game.

The fact that Sanchez was glued to a clipboard for Denver's regular season dress rehearsal tells you all you need to know about his "competition" with Trevor Siemian, but it doesn't necessarily mean he will be cut. Sanchez is a known commodity to anyone who has watched NFL football since 2009. The Broncos needed to see as much of Siemian and Paxton Lynch as possible. Sanchez's release remains a distinct possibility, of course. Cutting him would save $4.5 million, and get the Broncos their seventh-round pick back.

Paxton Lynch completed 6-of-13 passes for 57 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday’s preseason game.

He recorded one yard on four rushing attempts, though two were kneel-downs. It was a tepid effort for Lynch, who missed an opportunity to put distance between himself and Mark Sanchez, who is on the bubble. Lynch got off to a nice start by completing his first four passes but limped to the finish with seven misses over his last nine throws. To be fair, Lynch was playing with backups and the Broncos used a run-heavy approach featuring Devontae Booker and Ronnie Hillman. Lynch's longest completion came on a 17-yard screen to Booker. Lynch has shown flashes during preseason play but Trevor Siemian remains the odds-on favorite to start Week 1 against Carolina.

Ronnie Hillman rushed five times for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Long an inconsistent back, Hillman flashed his trademark foot quickness and burst on a handful of nice runs as Hillman continues to fight for his roster life. He worked behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker for the second straight game. In order to keep his job, Hillman may still need the Broncos to keep four backs. No. 4 runner Kapri Bibbs has more special teams value.

Broncos WR Cody Latimer left the third preseason game with a knee injury.

It's a disappointing development for a slow-starting receiver who was having a solid camp. Latimer doesn't play in the slot and isn't the Broncos' No. 3 wideout, but he had seemingly secured the top backup spot behind Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Latimer was the 56th overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Virgil Green caught 3-of-3 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Green has caught all eight of his targets in August and seems to have some chemistry with Trevor Siemian, with whom Green spent much of last year practicing on the second-team offense. This year, both are first-teamers. 28-year-old Green is a candidate to be this year's later-career breakout at tight end.
Aug 27 - 11:29 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught 3-of-4 targets for 45 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

He has eight catches for 83 yards in the preseason. Entering his contract season, Sanders returns as the 1B to Demaryius Thomas' 1A in Denver's offense. While Thomas remains the favorite for Broncos targets, there's a chance Sanders could prove the superior value pick relative to their draft costs.
Aug 27 - 11:26 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 4-of-8 targets for 63 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Thomas looked to be in sync with Trevor Siemian and came down with a circus catch for 43 yards. Demaryius also had a 32-yard touchdown in the preseason opener, although it was delivered by Mark Sanchez. While he is still a viable WR2, Denver's quarterback woes keep Thomas out of our top-12 fantasy receivers.

Trevor Siemian completed 10-of-17 passes for 122 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday’s preseason game.

It wasn’t a perfect outing for Siemian, but it was enough to keep him ahead of Paxton Lynch and Mark Sanchez. Denver got off to a bit of a sluggish start with three-and-outs on its first two drives but things started clicking for Siemian in the second quarter when he threw a one-yard touchdown to Virgil Green on a well-executed play-action pass. Siemian also connected with Demaryius Thomas on a gorgeous 42-yard strike down the right sideline. He did turn the ball over once but Cody Latimer made a minimal effort on a pass that was intercepted by Rams S Cody Davis. Barring something completely unexpected, Siemian is going to be the Broncos’ signal caller for Week 1 against the Panthers.
Aug 27 - 11:10 PM

Devontae Booker managed ten yards on six carries and caught a 17-yard pass in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Booker was sprinkled in lightly with Denver's first-team offense, running mainly with the twos after C.J. Anderson left the game. Booker's big play occurred on screen pass from Paxton Lynch for a gain of 17. Booker will likely open the season seeing light snaps, but he's worth stashing in most leagues. Anderson has not yet proven capable of handling a bellcow workload.
Aug 27 - 11:08 PM

C.J. Anderson rushed 11 times for 50 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game Saturday night.

His preseason rushing stats stand at 19-88-1 (4.63 YPC). Although Devontae Booker mixed in a bit more with the first-team offense Saturday, Anderson remained the clear feature back with the ones. Anderson has disappointed before, but bear in mind his ADP has fallen by nearly three rounds since last year. If Anderson stays healthy, the 25-year-old will be utilized heavily.
Aug 27 - 10:53 PM

Paxton Lynch will be the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

Trevor Siemian will draw the start with Mark Sanchez slotting in as the third-string QB. The pieces of Denver's quarterback puzzle are starting to come together with Siemian the favorite to start Week 1 and Sanchez now fighting for his roster spot. Lynch has done some good things this preseason, completing 21-of-33 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns. He could put heat on Siemian with another strong showing on Saturday.
Aug 27 - 7:45 PM

Broncos TE Garrett Graham is in danger of losing his roster spot.

A replacement-level talent, Graham's history with Gary Kubiak might not save him after missing almost all of camp with a shoulder injury. Virgil Green has stepped forward as the Broncos' primary receiving tight end, while John Phillips is a better blocker. 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman will also make the team.

Aug 26 - 6:56 PM

Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius Fantasy show, ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold stated that Trevor Siemian "has won the starting job."

Siemian apparently "won the starting job" in a preseason game he was pick sixed by 49ers FS Eric Reid. More accurately, Mark Sanchez outright lost the starting job with three turnovers in Denver's first two exhibitions, and Paxton Lynch isn't quite ready yet. Siemian is on track to start Week 1, but if he starts the season slow, coach Gary Kubiak could have a quick hook.
