Mike Klis of 9 News Denver expects restricted free agent ILB Todd Davis to receive a second-round tender.

With the March 9 deadline approaching quickly, reports of tender offers should start filling the news feed in the coming days. A quality starter in 2016, Davis is certain to get an offer, and Klis expects the Broncos to place a second-round tender on K Brandon McManus as well. After botching the C.J. Anderson situation last offseason, the Broncos are unlikely to mess around with their priority RFAs.

104.3 The Fan in Denver's Cecil Lammey reports C.J. Anderson is expected to be cleared from his meniscus tear in two weeks.

Anderson originally expected to be cleared by the end of February, but he isn't known to have encountered any setbacks, and there was nothing to gain by rushing back so early in the offseason. Still only 26, Anderson will be learning a new offense under OC Mike McCoy, who is expected to install more power-blocking concepts. Anderson remains the favorite to start over Devontae Booker.

Trevor Siemian (shoulder surgery) said he expects to be ready for OTAs.

Siemian underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in January. "I am out of the sling and everything is going really well so far," Siemian said. "I should be good for OTAs but we'll see." Even if he is "ready" for OTAs, Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver reports Siemian is unlikely to practice in full until training camp. Siemian will compete with 2016 first-rounder Paxton Lynch if the Broncos do not add anyone else this offseason.

According to Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver, it's unlikely Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will practice fully until training camp.

Siemian underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in January. He's still expected to be ready for OTAs, but won't be given a full workload until training camp opens. Siemian had his moments last year, but remains a placeholder for the Broncos while first-round pick Paxton Lynch continues his development.

Broncos signed DL Bobby Richardson.

Richardson made 11 starts for the Saints in 2015 after signing as an undrafted free agent. He was released at the end of training camp last summer and later spent time on the Chiefs' and Redskins' practice squads. The offseason just started but already the Broncos seem to be putting an emphasis on their run defense, which ranked near the bottom of the league last season.
Feb 24 - 1:14 PM

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.
Feb 11 - 1:43 PM

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.
Feb 7 - 4:54 PM

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.
Feb 6 - 12:36 PM

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.
