Date: Team: Pos:

Broncos C Matt Paradis underwent the second of two scheduled offseason hip surgeries on Tuesday.

This procedure was on his left hip after he had his right hip repaired in early January. Paradis hopes to be ready for the start of the season, but he will almost certainly begin training camp on the PUP list. The Broncos likely will have to replace both tackles and may be looking for upgrades at guard as well, so getting Paradis healthy is of the utmost importance.

Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports the Broncos have "reached out" to impending free agent CB Kayvon Webster.

The effort might be in vain. Webster almost certainly wants a shot at a starting job, and that is not going to happen with Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby atop the depth chart in Denver. Webster should hit the open market.

Free agent CB Kayvon Webster plans to test the open market.

Webster spent the last four years as a deep reserve behind Aqib Talib, Bradley Roby and Chris Harris. He played just 59 snaps in 2016 before landing on IR. Webster could find a bigger role in free agency, but will be limited to backup-caliber offers.

The Broncos are expected to move on from free agent NT Sylvester Williams.

Williams has anchored the Broncos’ line the last three seasons. He was a big part of Denver’s struggles against the run, grading near the bottom of PFF’s ratings. Williams has potential to get overpaid in free agency.

The Broncos will keep a 3-4 base defense under new DC Joe Woods.

As expected. Woods was promoted to DC following the departure of Wade Phillips, who joined the Rams' coaching staff last month. Denver has boasted arguably the league's top secondary since Woods arrived as DBs coach in 2015, but the Broncos ranked 28th against the run last year. Woods said improving the team's run defense will be his primary focus this offseason.

Speaking Tuesday, new Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he's committed to a quarterback competition between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.

He said a competition between the two is his "vision going forward." The implication being, the Broncos won't pursue someone like Tony Romo or Tyrod Taylor. That's easy to say now, but GM John Elway certainly won't write off Romo out of hand. It would be stunning were Elway not to explore the quarterback market. Perhaps he won't find anything he likes/can afford, but it's too early in the offseason to lock in Lynch and Siemian.

The Broncos can save $3 million against the salary cap by releasing RT Donald Stephenson.

Signed to a three-year, $14 million pact last offseason, Stephenson was a massive flop as Denver's starting right tackle. He was Pro Football Focus' second-worst offensive tackle out of 76 qualifiers, finishing only ahead of the Vikings' T.J. Clemmings. The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe considers it an "easy decision" for the Broncos to cut Stephenson.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, impending free agent OLB DeMarcus Ware is "leaving the door open" for a return to Dallas.

Ware spent nine years in Dallas before joining the Broncos in 2014. The 34-year-old is coming off an injury-plagued 2016 campaign but expects to be fully recovered from back surgery in a couple of weeks. The Cowboys lacked an elite pass rusher this year and Ware would certainly provide a boost in that area. Returning to the Broncos is also a possibility for Ware, who was recently told by coach Vance Joseph that he's part of the team's "equation" on defense.
Feb 5 - 10:38 AM

Free agent Justin Forsett said he'll make a decision on retirement "in a month or so."

The 31-year-old will take the next month to decide. Forsett said he already has plans for his post-playing career including traveling, writing a book and working as a motivational speaker. "A lot of guys let football be their identity," he said. "I’ve never let football be my identity or who I am." Forsett spent time with three different teams last season, amassing 291 yards and one score in nine games.

Impending free agent OLB DeMarcus Ware hopes to re-sign with the Broncos.

Ware was told by new coach Vance Joseph that he's "part of the equation." The 34-year-old also said he expects to be fully recovered from his back surgery in about two weeks. "Hopefully I come back there, and I want to, but it’s also about the man who writes the checks and that’s (GM John) Elway," said Ware. "But I’m ready, I’m passionate and I want to lead that defense." Ware is still a force when healthy but has missed 11 games over his last two seasons.

C.J. Anderson (knee surgery) expects to be fully cleared later this month.

"I ran 100 percent full out (Tuesday)," Anderson said. "I’m pushing toward playing, no problems. Pretty much doing everything except for cutting." Anderson is four months removed from a torn meniscus. He remains on track for OTAs.
Feb 1 - 6:01 PM

Broncos OLB Shane Ray is expected to be a starter in 2017.

With free agent DeMarcus Ware unlikely to re-sign and certain to take on a situational role if he does, Ray should get the first crack at the job opposite Von Miller. It will not be a new role for the third-year player. Ray started eight games and played 666 snaps in 2016, finishing strong with four sacks in the last six games. The Broncos will hope Ray can keep that momentum going in 2017.

The attorney for Broncos LCB Aqib Talib confirmed Talib accidentally shot himself in the leg last June.

The attorney told Dallas police Talib's gunshot wound was indeed self-inflicted. Talib was never charged with a crime, but 9 News Denver's Mike Klis believes Talib could face NFL discipline under the personal conduct policy. 31-year-old Talib turned in another Pro Bowl campaign in 2016, amassing three picks and 12 pass breakups across 13 starts. He missed three games with a back injury.
Jan 27 - 11:42 PM

The Broncos are hoping for a "big jump" in DE Adam Gotsis' second year.

The 63rd pick in last year's draft, Gotsis failed to earn consistent rookie snaps on a Denver defensive line that struggled mightily versus the run. RE Jared Crick was an especially big run-defense liability, but Gotsis couldn't beat him out. The Broncos may need to add reinforcements in the draft and free agency.

The Broncos are expected to employ more power-blocking concepts under new OL coach Jeff Davidson and OC Mike McCoy.

McCoy has a flexible background -- willing to adjust his scheme to fit his personnel -- but Davidson has primarily coached power-blocking units as opposed to outgoing coach Gary Kubiak's zone scheme. Devontae Booker struggled at times in Kubiak's one-cut-and-go run game and could theoretically benefit from the scheme change. Either way, Booker should open camp well behind C.J. Anderson.
