Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller said he expects to sign a long-term deal with the Broncos "any day."

"That's just the mindset I have," Miller continued. The quote makes it sound more like Miller is hoping he will get a new deal soon rather than expecting one. The two sides were reportedly very far apart in negotiations just two weeks ago, and franchise-tag deals rarely get done this far before the July 15 deadline. These negotiations are likely to drag on much longer than Miller hopes.

Broncos signed TE Garrett Graham to a one-year contract.

Graham, 28, was a useful No. 2 tight end under Gary Kubiak in Houston, catching 49 balls for the 2013 Texans before Kubiak's ouster. The Texans re-signed Graham to be a starter under Bill O'Brien and he struggled, finally getting benched for Ryan Griffin and C.J. Fiedorowicz last year. In Denver, Graham will compete with Virgil Green and Jeff Heuerman for snaps.

Coach Gary Kubiak said the Broncos are "counting on" sophomore TE Jeff Heuerman "big time."

A third-round pick last year, Heuerman lost his entire rookie season to a torn ACL. Now healthy, GM John Elway said he expects Heuerman to "step in and be a force." It sounds like the Broncos plan on Heuerman being the No. 1 tight end this season. Without a clear third pass catcher on the roster, he could have some sleeper value.

Broncos GM John Elway says the sides have only exchanged offers once in contract talks for franchise player Von Miller.

"Been one offer and one counter offer," were Elway's exact words. "Like to be a little closer." Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported earlier this week that the sides are $4 million apart in average annual value. Despite that, Elway has characterized the talks as positive. The sides still have nearly three months to get a deal done.

Broncos RCB Chris Harris (shoulder) said he's fully healthy.

Harris played through a shoulder issue in the playoffs, but was clearly limited. There won't be any carryover from last season. Harris will open 2016 opposite Aqib Talib, with Bradley Roby playing outside in sub packages.

Emmanuel Sanders said Mark Sanchez has made a "great impression."

"I was impressed by his arm strength. I was impressed with the throws he was making," Sanders said. "I’ve been here around the locker room and he’s been spending extra time in the facility. That’s the type of guy that we need. It’s going to be fun." Sanchez is taking full advantage of his head start over the competition the Broncos will inevitably bring in before training camp. It remains to be seen if his efforts will make any difference when it comes time to pick a starter.

Contract-year WR Emmanuel Sanders isn't worried about signing an extension.

"I want to retire a Bronco," Sanders said. "Hopefully everything works out. I'm sure both sides will come to something. We're going to see how it goes, but right now it’s not about me. It's about this team and about winning championships, and that’s what I’m focused on." Sanders turned 29 last month and is coming off two career-years in Denver, catching 177 passes for 2,539 yards and 15 touchdowns across 31 starts. He has a case to make over $10 million per year, but is scheduled to make just a $5 million base salary in 2016.

Broncos re-signed RB Ronnie Hillman to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Hillman, 24, led the Broncos in carries (207) and rushing yards (863) last season, but was severely outperformed by C.J. Anderson for the final three months of the year and averaged 1.69 YPC on 32 playoff carries. Hillman's bulk production was superior to Anderson's, but Anderson generated far more offseason interest than Hillman because Anderson is a far-superior back. The Broncos are presumably hopeful Hillman will be more productive on a lesser workload this season. He should still be a clear 1B to Anderson's 1A.

Broncos restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall is participating in this week's voluntary minicamp.

Marshall has yet to sign his second-round tender, meaning he signed a waiver to participate. There was speculation Marshall would hold out of voluntary workouts in his pursuit of a long-term extension. After Danny Trevathan bolted in free agency, locking up Marshall should be a priority for the Broncos.
Apr 18 - 11:13 AM

According to Yahoo's Charles Robinson, the Broncos and unsigned franchise player Von Miller are roughly $4 million per year apart in contract negotiations.

The Broncos are believed to have offered $18 million per year, while Miller wants $22 million. It's a fair demand by Miller after far-inferior Olivier Vernon landed $17 million per year from the Giants. Robinson reports Denver has drawn a "financial line in the sand," and is unwilling to budge. On back-to-back franchise tags, Miller would cost only $16 million annually over the next two seasons. The Broncos' $18 million per-year offer would make Miller the NFL's second highest defensive player behind only Ndamukong Suh. Suh averages over $19 million per year.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis considers 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman the Broncos' "projected starter" at tight end.

Heuerman drew some Heath Miller comparisons coming out of Ohio State, but missed his entire rookie year with a torn ACL. Klis writes that blocker Virgil Green "is a solid No. 2." Tight end is one of the positions the Broncos are most likely to address in the draft. For now, however, Heuerman is something of a deep sleeper on a team with no obvious third pass-catching option.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports contract talks between the Broncos and free agent Ronnie Hillman "have heated up."

Get excited. With only borderline-NFL talents Juwan Thompson and Kapri Bibbs behind C.J. Anderson on the depth chart, the Broncos are in the market for a No. 2 back. One alternative to re-signing ineffective Hillman would be to use a draft pick at tailback. It's perhaps a route that might serve Denver best. Hillman is a thoroughly mediocre player whose smallish body can't hold up to a pounding. He's drawn scant free agent interest elsewhere.
Apr 17 - 2:42 PM

Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller will not attend Denver's offseason program.

Miller has yet to sign his $14.1 million franchise tender. He won't participate in any offseason work as an unsigned player. Miller is seeking $22M annually, with the Broncos latest offer reportedly in the $18M range. The sides have until July 15 to work out an extension.
Apr 16 - 1:36 PM

Broncos re-signed exclusive-rights free agent OL Sam Brenner.

Claimed off waivers in November, Brenner spent the final eight weeks and entire postseason on Denver’s roster. He’ll back up at multiple interior line spots.
Apr 15 - 7:32 PM

Broncos re-signed S Shiloh Keo.

Keo was out of the league for most of the last two seasons before signing with the Broncos in December. With David Bruton and Omar Bolden gone, he’ll compete for a role behind Darian Stewart and T.J. Ward.
