Speaking Monday, Broncos GM John Elway stressed third-year pro Ty Sambrailo is a "real" option at left tackle.

The Broncos have a (file missing) graphic where there offensive line is supposed to be, so it's not really a surprise. The No. 59 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Sambrailo has flopped at both right tackle and left tackle. He's been mentioned as a candidate at guard. It's unlikely he enters Week 1 on the blindside. The line will be an emphasis for the Broncos in the draft.

Broncos exercised CB Bradley Roby's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The $8.526 million option is guaranteed for injury only. The No. 31 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Roby has been a solid contributor, but not quite a star. Turning 25 next month, Roby still has time to improve. With Aqib Talib aging, GM John Elway would very much like Roby to lock himself into the team's future.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Aqib Talib will not be suspended or fined for a shooting incident last summer.

Talib suffered a gunshot wound to his leg in Dallas last June. Originally reported as a gunfight outside a club, reports quickly emerged suggesting Talib accidently shot himself. Pelissero reports he admitted as much to police during the investigation. Despite escaping suspension, Talib will be required to complete a firearm safety course and submit a list of his weapons.

Emmanuel Sanders expects the Broncos to be "pass-happy" this season.

Sanders never played for new/old-OC Mike McCoy, but he did play in a similar offense under Adam Gase in 2014, a career-year for the receiver. "I had an opportunity to play in this offense my first year in 2014. I had 1,400 yards," Sanders said. "Hopefully we can simulate that some type of way and put up points and score to help our defense." If Denver gets anything resembling solid quarterback play from Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch, McCoy's return should be good news for the fantasy prospects of Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Both could end up being values on draft day.

9 News Denver reports the Broncos are expected to pick up CB Bradley Roby's fifth-year option.

The option will pay Roby $8.526 million in 2018. Aqib Talib and Chris Harris get all of the ink, but Roby has quietly been a solid part of the Broncos' stellar secondary since being selected in the first round of the 2014 draft. Considering Talib turned 31 in February, the Broncos likely see Roby as the future at the position.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis called it "false" that the Broncos are concerned with Paxton Lynch's work habits.

Ex-NFL personnel man Bryan Broaddus recently stated on a radio hit that he heard Lynch wasn't putting in as much time as the Broncos would like. Klis questioned Broaddus' credibility and indicated Broaddus is flat-out wrong. Klis went so far as to suggest Broaddus -- as a current Dallas employee -- is a mouthpiece for the Cowboys to "crow" because "we all know the Cowboys wanted Lynch" in last year's draft. Either way, Lynch needs to take a step forward on and off the field to unseat incumbent starter Trevor Siemian.
Apr 16 - 2:15 PM

In a radio interview, ex-NFL personnel man Bryan Broaddus stated that he's heard the Broncos have concerns about Paxton Lynch's work ethic and study habits.

Broaddus is no longer an NFL team decision maker, but he maintains connections throughout the league and still works for the Cowboys as a media scout. "I talked to some guys in Denver," said Broaddus. "They're having a problem with Paxton Lynch right now because they can't get him to buy into the things like Dak Prescott bought in. Early in, late out, that kind of thing." Last year's 26th overall pick, Lynch will compete with Trevor Siemian to start for the second straight offseason. Siemian will be the favorite entering training camp.

Trevor Siemian acknowledges he needs to get rid of the ball quicker as a sophomore.

It echoes comments coach Vance Joseph made earlier this month. Siemian indeed let himself get blown up far too often as a rookie, ultimately requiring shoulder surgery. Siemian is competing with Paxton Lynch for the Broncos' starting job after the team drove Tony Romo into retirement. Siemian was far more impressive in 2016, but Lynch's draft pedigree will work in his favor.

Von Miller thinks Shane Ray is "ready" to take over for retired OLB DeMarcus Ware.

"He’s been ready for a long time," Miller added. A first-round pick in 2015, Ray was forced into a bigger role last season with Ware sidelined by forearm and back injuries, and he responded with eight sacks in 666 snaps including four in the final six games. Denver still needs some more depth on the edge, but Ray should be a solid option opposite Miller.

Demaryius Thomas hopes to increase his yards after the catch in 2017.

Per Pro Football Focus, Thomas had 330 yards after the catch last season, good for just 25th in the league. Thomas had 492 in 2015 (sixth), and 668 in 2014 (second). With the return of OC Mike McCoy, Thomas is banking on an increase in receiver screens. "That was kind of one of my first thoughts — the screen passes," Thomas said. "The years we played together with Mike were some of my best years. I look forward to it this year as well." Thomas dealt with a hip issue in 2016. He's posted five straight 1,000-yard seasons.

Demaryius Thomas spent the early part of the offseason working on getting his hips healthy.

Thomas was bothered by a sore hip for much of 2016. He didn't require surgery, but needed a few months of rest and rehab. "I'll be on top of it," Thomas insisted. Banged up and playing with new, young quarterbacks, Thomas had a down 2016 by his standards, but still ended up the WR19 by total points. He could be a value this season.
Apr 11 - 2:40 PM

C.J. Anderson (torn meniscus) will be a full participant in the Broncos' offseason program.

Anderson went under the knife in late October. His recovery took a little longer than expected, but all that matters is that he's healthy now. Anderson is competing with Devontae Booker, and remains the favorite to get another shot at starting duties in 2017. It's not outside the realm of possibility that the Broncos draft another mid-round runner, though it is unlikely.
Apr 10 - 2:13 PM

Speaking Monday, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Trevor Siemian (shoulder surgery) is "full go" for the team's offseason program.

With Tony Romo retired, Siemian is competing with Paxton Lynch for the Broncos' starting job. "It's open, guys," Joseph said of the competition. "50-50. It's open and it will go down to the wire, I hope." Siemian might have been the slight favorite had Gary Kubiak stuck around, but second-year first-rounder Lynch figures to be given every chance to win the job.
Apr 10 - 2:07 PM

Broncos re-signed OLB Shaq Barrett to a one-year, $615,000 contract.

Still only 24, Barrett has been an effective role player the past two seasons, totaling seven sacks while being an asset against the run. He could be in line for a bigger role in 2017.
Apr 10 - 1:44 PM

Broncos re-signed ILB Todd Davis to a one-year, $2.746 million contract.

Davis was a restricted free agent tendered at the second-round level. Going on 25, Davis played a career-high 697 snaps last season, making a few plays while holding up well against the run. The second-round tender is an indication Denver expects Davis to keep improving. The Broncos also re-signed exclusive rights free agents LB Zaire Anderson, LB Shaquil Barrett and C James Ferentz.
