Broncos fired OC Mike McCoy.

Denver's offense has certainly been disappointing, but this feels like a scapegoating move considering the quarterbacks McCoy has had to deal with and "talent" available on the offensive line. Until those issues are fixed, Denver is likely to struggle on offense regardless of who is calling the plays. Fired for the second time this calendar year, McCoy will once again be looking for a job this January.

Lions claimed OLB Kasim Edebali off waivers from the Broncos.

George Johnson was released in the corresponding roster move. Edebali didn't make much of a mark in Denver, logging just 55 defensive snaps over seven games before being waived earlier this week. If nothing else, he'll provide depth at outside linebacker while also getting work on special teams.

Broncos waived OLB Kasim Edebali.

Edebali drew summer chatter as a fill-in starter for Shane Ray, but it never happened. He was active nine games on special teams.

Saints signed RB Jonathan Williams off the Broncos' practice squad.

It's reportedly a two-year deal. New Orleans had an open roster spot after losing Daniel Lasco to a season-ending spine injury. Williams resurfaced on Denver's practice squad after he was among the Bills' final cuts at training camp this summer. He'll serve as a change-of-pace option behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Williams adds depth to a Saints' running game that is already among the league's best.

Falcons signed DT Ahtyba Rubin.

Released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Rubin did not have to wait long on the open market. Taniela Tupou was waived in a corresponding move.
Oct 19 - 12:20 PM

Broncos released DT Ahtyba Rubin.

A 16-game starter for the Seahawks last season, Rubin had been active only twice for the Broncos, playing 13 snaps. Now 31, Rubin won't be a hot commodity on the open market, though his experience should get him workouts.

Former Broncos WR Jordan Norwood announced his retirement after eight seasons in the NFL.

An undrafted free agent out of Penn State, Norwood bounced around the league before landing with the Broncos in 2015. He carved out a role as a returner in Denver and set an NFL record with a 61-yard punt return in the Broncos' Super Bowl victory. He finishes his career with 79 catches for 844 yards and two touchdowns.

Broncos signed RB Jonathan Williams to the practice squad.

Williams signed for $510,000, a princely sum for the taxi squad. It could be an indication the Broncos have designs on promoting him in short order. It's certainly not the best landing spot, as the Broncos have a crowded backfield on the 53-man roster. It is one rife with age and injury concerns, however. The fact that it's been two days and Williams couldn't land on someone's active roster is obviously a bad sign for his Dynasty league future.

Chargers claimed OG Michael Schofield, formerly of the Broncos, off waivers.

Schofield struggled as a 29-game starter for the Broncos the last two seasons, but he is a former third-round pick with theoretical talent. Like seemingly always, the Chargers could use some depth inside.
Sep 3 - 1:06 PM

Buccaneers agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with SS T.J. Ward, formerly of the Broncos.

Denver cut Ward to make room for promising youngsters Justin Simmons and Will Parks to play more snaps, but there are no indications Ward is washed up. Still only 30 years old, Ward forced five fumbles and tallied three sacks for the Broncos over the last two seasons. Ward is an imposing tone setter at strong safety, albeit a coverage liability. He should still start Week 1 for Tampa Bay.

Broncos waived NT Kyle Peko.

They also waived DE Nelson Adams, S Dante Barnett, C Dillon Day, OLB Vontarrius Dora, OLB Ken Ekanem, ILB Jerrol Garcia-Williams, ILB Quentin Gause, OLB Deon Hollins, G Cameron Hunt, NT Tyrique Jarrett, OT Cedrick Lang, OLB Danny Mason, LB Deiontrez Mount, OT Justin Murray, WR Anthony Nash, WR Kalif Raymond, CB Marcus Rios, TE Steven Scheu, OL Michael Schofield, WR Hunter Sharp, QB Kyle Sloter, DE Shakir Soto, S Orion Stewart, S Dymonte Thomas, RB Juwan Thompson, TE Austin Traylor, OT Elijah Wilkinson and RB Stanley Williams. WR Marlon Brown, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, RB Stevan Ridley and S T.J. Ward were released while ILB Kevin Snyder was waived/injured.

9News' Mike Klis reports the Broncos are expected to have interest in free agent Brock Osweiler.

The Broncos are the first team linked to Osweiler since his Cleveland release. Osweiler had the best season of his career filling in for Peyton Manning in 2015, but has struggled outside of Denver. The Broncos need a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) expected to miss 2-4 games. Osweiler's contract contains offset language, so he figures to sign for the veteran minimum.
Sep 2 - 3:05 PM

Broncos waived OG Michael Schofield.

Schofield was a 29-game starter over the past two seasons, but not an asset. He struggled mightily both years. The Broncos are going with Ronald Leary and Max Garcia for 2017. Schofield turns 27 in November.
Sep 2 - 1:20 PM

Broncos released SS T.J. Ward.

The ex-Brown was headed into the final season of his four-year, $22.5 million deal. The move creates $4.5 million in cap space. Ward remained serviceable in 2016, but looked a step slower at age 30. He missed time with a hamstring issue this summer, and the Broncos decided they were comfortable with Justin Simmons as Ward's replacement. Ward should have a new home by this time next week.
Sep 2 - 11:35 AM

Broncos waived RB Juwan Thompson.

A sort of fullback-tailback hybrid who stuck around for longer than expected in Denver, Thompson was made expendable by De'Angelo Henderson's emergence.
Sep 1 - 1:43 PM

Broncos released RB Stevan Ridley.

All out of gas at age 28, Ridley has been bouncing around the league since the Patriots gave up on him. He was unable to get past sixth-round rookie De'Angelo Henderson in Broncos camp.
Sep 1 - 1:30 PM

Falcons acquired G/T Ty Sambrailo from the Broncos in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

A 2015 second-rounder, Sambrailo proved to be a massive bust in Denver. He opened 2015 as the starting left tackle but was abused so bad and benched after Week 3. He didn't prove to be any better at right tackle in 2016. Sambrailo could eventually be tried at right guard in Atlanta. The Falcons are set at their tackle spots with LT Jake Matthews and RT Ryan Schraeder.
Sep 1 - 12:29 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent OLB Ahmad Brooks will visit the Packers.

Rapoport adds the Broncos are interested as well, and both teams could use some help at outside linebacker. Released by the 49ers this week, Brooks was always likely to garner early interest, and it does not seem like he will have to wait long to find a new home. Brooks has averaged six sacks a year since 2009.
Aug 27 - 2:20 PM

Broncos waived RB Bernard Pierce.

They'll move forward with Stevan Ridley, Jamaal Charles, Devontae Booker, FB/RB Juwan Thompson, and rookie De'Angelo Henderson behind C.J. Anderson.
Aug 21 - 2:55 PM

The Broncos strongly denied a 104.3 Denver report from Sandy Clough that the team is "aggressively pursuing a trade" for A.J. McCarron.

"Sandy Clough" has never been a Rotoworld source, but the rumor had been circulating Twitter before Broncos GM John Elway labeled it "irresponsible, fake news," while another team source called it "150 percent false." Elway says the team is happy with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch. Though that may not be entirely true, it doesn't exactly make sense for a contending Bengals team to trade an above-average backup that is under team control for two more seasons when Andy Dalton has missed games in recent years.
