The NFL will investigate whether Peyton Manning and Adam Gase broke any NFL rules while visiting Alabama coach Nick Saban last week.

The 2011 collective bargaining agreement prevents coaches and players from having individual meetings prior to the beginning of offseason programs. Saban admitted Gase and Manning were on campus together, but insisted Gase and Manning were not involved in any football related meetings together. It is unclear what punishment Manning or Gase would face if found guilty, but it would likely be a wrist slap at most.

ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold says Peyton Manning "might be asked to throw less so the offense can be more" this season.

We don't see it. The Broncos led the league by a wide margin in points per game (37.9), yards per game (457.3) and first downs (435) last season, earning the AFC's No. 1 seed for the second straight season. Why change what works? Manning projects to regress a bit off last year's record-setting campaign, but 4,600 yards and 35+ touchdowns on something around 600 attempts is the floor.

Peyton Manning said Montee Ball is ready to be the starting running back.

The Broncos wouldn't have let Knowshon Moreno walk for pennies if Ball didn't have Manning's blessing. We saw that faith in the playoffs last season, when Ball played on 91-of-226 (40.2 percent) of the snaps across three games. Stubborn fantasy owners are going to remember Ball's blown blitz pickup from the preseason and back-to-back fumbles in Weeks 2 and 3, but the Broncos have forgotten about that long ago. Both the coaching staff and Peyton are ready to ride with the physical second-year man as their feature back.

Broncos second-year CB Kayvon Webster is currently penciled in as the No. 3 corner.

Webster is behind only Aqib Talib and Chris Harris, while he's ahead of Tony Carter on the depth chart. He was playing major snaps down the stretch as a rookie and may have to fill a larger role with Harris coming off a torn ACL.

Montee Ball had zero fumbles on his first 802 touches at Wisconsin.

Ball's three rookie-year fumbles ensured he'd stay behind Knowshon Moreno and earned him a "fumbler" label. It's not fair. Like many young backs, Ball was slow to adjust to the hits taken at the NFL level and simply needed to compensate. Curing ball-security woes is easily teachable and fixable. Don't expect fumbling to be an issue as Ball soars to the feature back role. Read more on Ball in Adam Levitan's column, accessible at the link below.

Von Miller (ACL tear) said he'd "feeling good" and remains on schedule with his rehab.

Miller underwent surgery on Jan. 9. "With today's medicine and what's going on now like ACL, it's really not as serious as it used to be," he said. "I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better." Miller and fellow edge-bender DeMarcus Ware have the potential to form the league's most dangerous pass-rushing duo.

The Denver Post reports Demaryius Thomas is not dealing with a separated left shoulder.

Beat writer Mike Klis adds that Thomas is currently at Duke University taking part in Peyton Manning's annual passing camp. Thomas injured his shoulder in the Super Bowl, but it hasn't been confirmed that he truly did separate it. Klis reports Thomas merely bruised his shoulder. Either way, it's a non-issue at this point. Thomas will be fine for minicamp.

The Denver Post expects Brock Osweiler to depart via free agency before getting a chance to start for the Broncos.

Osweiler, the No. 57 overall pick in 2012, will be a free agent following the 2015 season. Peyton Manning is 38 years old, but is under contract through 2016 and is coming off an MVP season. Osweiler will likely have to decide if he wants to stay in town as Peyton's possible successor or if he'd rather compete for a gig elsewhere. He went 38-of-58 for 368 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 2013 preseason.

Demaryius Thomas is still dealing with the shoulder injury he sustained during the Super Bowl.

Thomas played through a separated left shoulder during the ugly loss to the Seahawks. It hasn't healed enough for him to participate in this week's annual Peyton Manning passing camp at Duke. However, the Broncos have expressed no concern and there's been no talk of surgery, so we'd expect Thomas to be a participant once OTAs get going. He'll carry truly massive upside into the season with Eric Decker now a Jet.

Broncos signed head coach John Fox to a three-year contract through 2016.

It's a two-year extension. After a nine-year run in Carolina, Fox became the Broncos' coach three seasons ago. He's led Denver to a 34-14 record, and a Super Bowl 48 berth. Fox's lack of aggressiveness in critical moments has come under scrutiny, but he's one of the NFL's most well-liked coaches, and highly respected by his players. He's also lucky to be surrounded by Peyton Manning, Jack Del Rio, and Adam Gase. The Broncos will enter 2014 with continuity throughout their coaching staff. Hopefully Fox's eagerness to call punts and kneeldowns rather than go for first downs and touchdowns won't cost Denver any future games. 38-year-old Manning's "window" will soon slam shut.
Apr 4 - 9:34 PM

Broncos agreed to terms with C Will Montgomery, formerly of the Redskins, on a one-year contract.

The deal is reportedly worth "around" $1.3 million. Montgomery was released by the Redskins early last month, and visited the Broncos shortly thereafter. The Denver Post has floated the idea that Montgomery could be the Broncos' starting center, shifting Manny Ramirez to left guard. Montgomery, of course, could also be an option at guard. A full-time starter since 2011, Montgomery was drafted by the Panthers in 2006 when current Broncos coach John Fox had the same job in Carolina. Now 31, Montgomery graded out as the No. 15 center in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season. He's missed only three games since 2008.
Apr 1 - 9:29 PM

Broncos re-signed restricted free agent CB Chris Harris to a one-year, $2.187 million contract.

The Broncos tendered Harris at the second-round level. He tore his ACL in the Divisional Round and is going to be in a race to be ready for training camp. Harris is expected to start opposite Aqib Talib now that the Broncos are without Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Champ Bailey. Harris will cover the slot in sub-packages. Tony Carter is lightly penciled in as the No. 3 corner.
Apr 1 - 1:49 PM

Broncos re-signed OT Winston Justice to a one-year contract.

Justice, 29, played under 20 snaps in Denver last season despite LT Ryan Clady's year-ending pectoral injury. With Clady due back healthy and Chris Clark likely kicking to right tackle, Justice will have to fight for a reserve job.
Mar 28 - 2:17 PM

Of Knowshon Moreno's 241 carries last season, 192 (79.7 percent) came against defenses playing six or fewer defenders in the box.

Moreno ranked 53rd in carries against seven-plus defenders in the box, despite ranking 13th in the league in total carries. Montee Ball won't necessarily be handed the same exact role -- the sophomore runner must prove to Peyton Manning that he won't fumble and can consistently pass protect -- but this is a mouth-watering situation for Ball's fantasy value. As for alternatives, C.J. Anderson ended 2013 ahead of Ronnie Hillman on Denver's depth chart. Anderson currently holds more Dynasty and re-draft "sleeper" value than Hillman.
Mar 27 - 11:58 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos "believe in" Montee Ball.

With Knowshon Moreno now a Dolphin, Ball finds himself atop the depth chart. The Denver Post reported earlier this month that Ball will get the first crack at starting this season. Ball struggled with ball security and pass protection early as a rookie, but closed out strong, averaging 5.87 yards per carry over his final 65 rushes. For the year, Ball's YPC was an impressive 4.66. Ball has monstrous fantasy upside in the Broncos' Peyton Manning-led offense.
