Broncos signed third-round CB Isaac Yiadom to a four-year, $3.69 million contract.

The deal includes a $761,516 signing bonus. Drafted 99th overall out of Boston College, Yiadom recorded 110 tackles and three interceptions during his four-year stay in Chestnut Hill. Like most rookies, the 22-year-old will begin his career as a backup/special teamer.

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall has lost roughly six pounds and hopes to lose five more.

Marshall is hoping to be lighter, quicker and to "move more efficiently." Headed into his age-29 campaign, Marshall bounced back from his injury-shortened 2016 last season but was not as effective as usual. For the first time, he earned negative marks from Pro Football Focus. Marshall was still on the field for nearly every snap, registering 106 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble.

Broncos sophomore TE Jake Butt said his knee "feels great."

Butt missed his rookie season recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in the Orange Bowl, but he is back to full strength now. "I honestly didn’t know," new quarterback Case Keenum said. "I knew he was injured, but I had no idea that it was even a knee issue. You can’t even tell. He’s running around making cuts and doing a great job." As long as his knee cooperates, Butt should find himself atop the depth chart Week 1.

Broncos DT Clinton McDonald is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

McDonald is sidelined as the Broncos open OTAs this week. He underwent the procedure in March, and the team knew about the issue when it signed him after McDonald had a solid 2017 in Tampa Bay. The 31-year-old remains an effective pocket pusher and will be a key cog in Denver's line rotation.

Broncos WR Jordan Taylor is recovering from surgery to both hips.

Taylor is participating in OTAs but not at full speed. Taylor had his right hip operated on before his left was sent under the knife nine weeks later. The fourth-year UDFA has 29 career catches. He makes his biggest contributions as a returner on special teams.

Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman will rep with the first-team offense at OTAs.

With Virgil Green gone, Heuerman will get the first chance to replace him as an in-line starter. Jake Butt and fifth-round TE Troy Fumagalli should also mix in behind Heuerman.

Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson suffered minor injuries to his shoulder and ankle in a car accident on Saturday night in Parker (CO).

A woman in a stolen car entered a high-speed police chase and wound up hospitalizing four people, including Henderson. Henderson escaped with minor sprains to his ankle and shoulder. Henderson did show up to the Broncos' facility on Monday and anticipates being full go for OTAs, where he will compete for carries with Devontae Booker and third-round rookie Royce Freeman.

9news.com's Mike Klis reports Devontae Booker 'figures' to be the lead back into training camp.

Klis also thinks rookie Royce Freeman will 'eventually' get a chance. The Broncos released C.J. Anderson in the offseason, leaving Booker, De’Angelo Henderson, Freeman, and sixth-rounder David Williams to compete for carries. Booker's veteran status should get him the first crack at the No. 1 job despite his 3.8 YPC last season. It's a position battle that should be monitored closely in camp.

Broncos signed second-round WR Courtland Sutton to a four-year contract.

The Broncos also signed fourth-round LB Josey Jewell, fourth-round WR DaeSean Hamilton, fifth-round TE Troy Fumagalli, sixth-round OG Sam Jones, sixth-round LB Keishawn Bierria and seventh-round RB David Williams. The third wide receiver off the board, Sutton is an old-school possession receiver with 4.54 speed who won in the run-after-catch and contested-catch games in college. Provided both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders keep their roster spots — which appears likely — Sutton will join them in three-receiver sets. It won't be a position of fantasy value with Case Keenum at the controls.

Broncos declined OLB Shane Ray's 2019 team option.

This means Ray will play out the final year of his rookie deal and then become a free agent next March. The former No. 23 overall pick recorded four sacks as a rookie and doubled it to eight in 2016, but Ray then missed half of last season with a wrist injury and managed just one sack in eight games. The Broncos just took EDGE Bradley Chubb at No. 5 overall to pair with All-Pro Von Miller. It's fair to wonder if the Broncos could shop Ray before Week 1.

Broncos GM John Elway insisted the organization has not given up on Paxton Lynch.

Elway put his money where his mouth is by passing on quarterbacks in the draft, even as Josh Allen and Josh Rosen were both available at the No. 5 pick. "We are not kicking him to the curb," Elway said of Lynch. "He can still develop. When we drafted him two years ago, as I said, we knew it was going to take some time." Elway said Lynch will compete with Chad Kelly for Denver's backup quarterback job. Case Keenum is locked in as the starter.
Apr 30 - 5:23 PM

Broncos signed Auburn OLB Jeff Holland.

Holland (6’1/249) backed up Carl Lawson at "Buck" linebacker in the Tigers’ defense before taking over as a 2017 starter and breaking out for 12 tackles for loss with nine sacks. Holland managed 12th-percentile SPARQ results in Indy, including 4.78/4.79 speed. Holland’s ceiling is a rotational player, but he has a chance to be a useful one as a sub-package pass rusher with special teams value.
Apr 28 - 7:38 PM

Broncos signed Colorado RB Phillip Lindsay.

Lindsay (5’7/185) made 30 starts for the Buffaloes, breaking CU’s all-time record in yards from scrimmage (4,683) and logging a 765/3,775/4.9/36 career rushing line with 117 receptions. PFF College ranked Lindsay top 20 in the nation in both missed tackles forced (47) and yards after contact (809) in 2017. Still snubbed for a Combine invite, Lindsay blazed 4.38/4.41 at the Buffaloes’ Pro Day, also touching 35 ½" in the vertical. Lindsay offers kick return experience and has an outside chance to become a poor man’s Tarik Cohen.
Apr 28 - 7:07 PM

Broncos selected Arkansas RB David Williams with the No. 226 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

It is clear GM John Elway wanted to bring in powerful, bruising backs. They selected Royce Freeman (6'0/229) earlier, and Williams stands at 224 pounds. With that said, Williams might not be an NFL-caliber athlete, testing in the 3rd percentile before the draft. Williams only produced one season over 300 rushing yards. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry and totaled 15 career touchdowns.
Apr 28 - 5:45 PM

Broncos selected Washington ILB Keishawn Bierria with the No. 217 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Bierria (6’0/230) was a three-plus-year starter for the Huskies, earning second-team All-Pac 12 honors as a junior and senior with 19.5 career tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles. He was exposed as a substandard athlete at the Combine, managing tenth-percentile SPARQ results with poor forty (4.79) and three-cone (7.26) times. A solid college player whose ceiling is limited in the pros, Bierria wins with discipline and fundamentals over power and athletic ability. He may max out on special teams.
