Free agent Brock Osweiler expressed a desire to re-sign with the Broncos.

"This is the best team in the world and we have a very special group in our locker room," Osweiler said. With Peyton Manning's future in question, Osweiler is the early favorite to be the Broncos' 2016 starter. But working out a contract will be the interesting part. The Broncos will likely want to only do a two- or three-year deal at mid-range money, while Osweiler could be looking to cash in after being at the controls when the Broncos went 5-2 down the stretch.

C.J. Anderson believes he can be a bell-cow back.

"Oh, I know that’s something I can do," Anderson said Thursday. "You know, we chose to go the two-back route. ... But I mean if they want me to touch the ball 25 times, 27 times, 28 times, either way, whether it’s all carries or carries and catches, I believe I can handle it always." Anderson proved that down the stretch in 2014, where he handled truly monstrous workloads, and again in Super Bowl 50, where he touched the ball 27 times. Denver's insistence on mixing in a monumentally ineffective Ronnie Hillman after Anderson returned to full health was baffling. We'd expect Anderson, who is a restricted free agent, to return to Denver as the obvious starter.

ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold expects Denver to use the franchise tag on Von Miller before working out a long-term deal.

Broncos GM John Elway has used the franchise tag three times in the last four years, most recently with Demaryius Thomas last offseason. The team and player worked out a long-term deal in each of those cases. Legwold expects Miller's negotiation to follow the same path. Miller should expect a deal in excess of the six-year, $101 million contract Justin Houston signed last summer.

Broncos signed RB Kapri Bibbs to a reserve/future contract.

Bibbs was active for one game last season, a Week 6 win over Cleveland. He returned a kick for 15 yards but didn't see carries. Even with Ronnie Hillman headed for free agency, Bibbs faces an uphill battle to crack Denver's 53-man roster.

Broncos signed S Ryan Murphy to a reserve/future contract.

Murphy was sent home during Super Bowl week for his involvement in a prostitution ring, though he wasn't arrested. He joined Denver's practice squad in November after being cut by the Seahawks at the end of training camp.

Broncos signed WR Jordan Taylor to a to a reserve/future contract.

Taylor spent time on the Denver practice squad in 2015 and served as Peyton Manning's throwing partner while he rehabbed from a foot injury. The UDFA out of Rice has yet to play an NFL snap. Taylor does offer the requisite size (6'4/209) and just enough speed (4.52) to be worth considering in especially deep Dynasty leagues. What he lacks is clear immediate opportunity.

Free agent DE Malik Jackson said he would "love to stay" with the Broncos but understands contract talks are "business."

"I would love to stay here and just kinda continue to start here with my boys," said Jackson. "But you know it is a business and I gotta feed my family so we’ll see what happens." Jackson said he would have no problem playing under the franchise tag, though the Broncos are more likely to use that on Von Miller if they can't work out a long-term agreement. Jackson could become one of the NFL's highest-paid defenders if he tests the market.

Broncos GM John Elway said re-signing impending free agent ILB Danny Trevathan will be a priority.

Denver should retain restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall on a one-year tender, but keeping Trevathan around could prove more difficult. The Broncos are about to shell out a huge contract to Von Miller, need to fill a likely hole at quarterback, and want to retain DE Malik Jackson as well. Trevathan recorded 109 tackles and intercepted two passes in 2015.

Broncos GM John Elway said retaining impending free agent DE Malik Jackson is a priority.

Elway said the same about ILB Danny Trevathan, and the Broncos still need to either tag OLB Von Miller or give him a massive extension. With limited cap space and a likely hole at quarterback, it will be tough for Denver to retain every piece of their historic defense. Jackson will be one of the hottest names available if he reaches the open market.

Broncos GM John Elway said there is "no deadline" for Peyton Manning to make his retirement decision.

Manning said Monday he plans to take "a few" weeks to make his decision. He will likely decide to retire, but if not he will put Elway in a tough spot. Manning is set to count $21.5 million against the cap, and his recent play does not justify that kind of hit. With his $19 million base salary set to guarantee on March 9, the Broncos need Manning to make his decision in the next month.

Pro Football Talk reports Broncos CB Aqib Talib could be suspended for intentionally tackling Corey Brown by his facemask in the Super Bowl.

Talib grabbed and twisted Brown down by his facemask inside the five in the second quarter. It was his second personal foul of the first half. Talib indicated after the game he intentionally grabbed Brown's facemask to make the tackle. "My teammates knew what it was," Talib said. "He was on the 3-yard line. (With) a personal foul, he was on the 1 1/2-yard line, so it is what it is." Talib was suspended for Week 10 after poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye.

DeMarcus Ware says he isn't planning to retire.

Ware is going on 34 and missed five games with injury this season, but will keep going. "I got a lot of gas in the tank," Ware said Sunday evening. "I don't think about retiring. God still wants me to play, that's why I'm still doing what I'm doing." Headed into the final year of his contract, Ware is due $7 million, plus a $3 million roster bonus. With a number of key free agents, the Broncos could approach Ware about a restructure. Ware remained highly effective in 2015, notching 7.5 sacks in 11 games. He terrorized Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50, tallying 2.5 more quarterback takedowns.

Free agent Vernon Davis played only 19 postseason snaps.

Davis' Broncos tenure was as big of a dud as possible. He made huge mistakes in the regular season before being phased out down the stretch. Now 32, Davis remains a rare athlete at tight end, but the finer points of his game have eroded. He'll likely have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden deal in free agency.
Feb 8 - 1:29 PM

Impending free agent OLB Von Miller said contract negotiations with the Broncos will be "a peaceful thing."

Miller's comments came while accepting the MVP award for Super Bowl 50. One of the best pass rushers in the league, Miller elevated his game this postseason with five combined sacks in the AFC Championship and Super Bowl wins. Even if they cannot agree to a long-term deal, the Broncos are widely expected to retain Miller with the franchise tag.

On the TODAY Show, Peyton Manning said he will not make his decision on retirement for "a few more weeks."

"I'll keep doing it for a few more weeks, and then, at the appropriate time, I think I'll make a decision," Manning said. "I have to tell you, though, I'm very much at peace with it." Manning has cited former coach Tony Dungy's advice not to make an emotional decision as his reason for delaying the announcement. With the script perfectly written, it would be surprising if Manning did not retire.
