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.
Sep 3 - 12:59 AM

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.
Aug 9 - 10:45 AM

Colts claimed TE Henry Krieger-Coble off waivers from the Broncos.

Krieger-Coble contributed on special teams for the 2016 Broncos and can play some H-back in a pinch. He adds depth to the Colts' tight end unit.
Jul 30 - 5:40 PM

The Denver Channel's Troy Renck "wouldn't be surprised" if the Broncos check in on free agent Dwight Freeney.

The Broncos are looking for an edge rusher with Shane Ray (wrist) and Shaq Barrett (hip, active/NFI) sidelined. There haven't been any updates on Freeney since early June, but he's made it clear he's open to playing this season. 37-year-old Freeney was productive as a situational pass rusher in Atlanta last season, posting three sacks and four TFLs on 416 snaps. Free agents Mario Williams, Trent Cole, and Paul Kruger are also veteran options.
Jul 28 - 8:15 PM

Broncos coach Vance Joseph "shot down any interest" in free agent Eric Decker.

Joseph is "happy with the group we have now." Signing Decker would have made more sense before Denver invested a day-two pick on Carlos Henderson, who will man the slot between Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Beyond Baltimore, serious suitors for Decker have yet to emerge.
Jun 13 - 4:15 PM

Free agent TE Gary Barnidge has spoken with the Broncos.

That is in addition to the Bills, who he visited, and the Jaguars. It is somewhat surprising Barnidge has not been snapped up yet, but teams likely want to see what they have during OTAs before making any decisions. Barnidge told SiriusXM he "would love to be" the No. 1 guy, but he also has "no problem" mentoring younger players.

Free agent QB Jay Cutler announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.

He'll follow Tony Romo into broadcasting, joining FOX Sports. Cutler will be in the booth on Sundays with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis. Burkhardt is FOX's No. 2 play-by-play man behind Joe Buck. Word is Cutler wanted to continue playing, but he simply didn't draw any interest. Drafted by Mike Shanahan's Broncos in a 2006 trade up, Cutler spent three years in Denver before Josh McDaniels sent him packing. He was sent to the Bears for Kyle Orton and a couple of first-round picks. Cutler played eight seasons in Chicago. He went 68-71 in his career, throwing for 32,467 yards and a 208:146 TD:INT ratio. Cutler made one Pro Bowl and went to the playoffs once. We bet he'd come back to play if a quarterback-needy team called.
May 5 - 9:14 AM

Free agent RB Jamaal Charles is visiting the Broncos on Tuesday.

It's only Charles' second visit of free agency. Fresh off striking out on early-round running backs in a deep draft at the position, the Broncos still need to add to their backfield. If healthy, Charles would be an excellent complement/back-up plan for C.J. Anderson. Charles recently posted video of a vigorous workout. He should find a new home sooner rather than later.
