Giants signed WR Cody Latimer, formerly of the Broncos.

The 56th pick in the 2014 draft, Latimer caught just 35 passes across four seasons in Denver. He set career highs across the board with a 19/287/2 receiving line last season. Latimer has been a bust to date, but he's still only 25 years old and worth a flier for a Giants team that figures to cut Brandon Marshall soon.

The Broncos are hosting free agent CB Delvin Breaux.

Breaux went non-tendered by the Saints after a falling out with the organization stemming from the team's handling of his injuries. When healthy, Breaux is a premier talent who flashed shutdown skills earlier in his career.
Mar 14 - 8:16 PM

Vikings acquired QB Trevor Siemian and a 2018 seventh-round draft pick from the Broncos in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019.

The Broncos were in a hurry to get rid of Siemian even though he was easily their second-best quarterback behind Case Keenum and costs only $705,000 this season. In Minnesota, Siemian will provide a formidable backup to Kirk Cousins.
Mar 14 - 5:49 PM

Chargers signed TE Virgil Green, formerly of the Broncos.

Green has been a popular fantasy sleeper at various points in his career, but he never topped 25 catches, 250 yards, or one touchdown in seven seasons with the Broncos. With Hunter Henry firmly atop the Chargers' depth chart, Green's breakout is unlikely to come this season.
Mar 14 - 4:08 PM

Browns signed OT Donald Stephenson, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Stephenson was a disaster in limited action last season, earning negative grades from PFF in both pass protection and run-blocking over 303 snaps between right and left tackle. He wouldn't be much of an upgrade on Shon Coleman, who is coming off a similarly dreadful year at right tackle.
Mar 13 - 4:46 PM

Eagles signed LB Corey Nelson, formerly of the Broncos, to a one-year contract.

Nelson made five starts for the Broncos in 2016 but was limited to 43 snaps by a biceps injury last season. In addition to being a reserve inside linebacker, Nelson will try to establish himself as a core special teamer for the Super Bowl champion Eagles.
Mar 13 - 2:04 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Broncos are expected to "hone in" on free agent CB T.J. Carrie.

One of the better down-the-board corners available, Carrie would join Chris Harris and Bradley Roby in the Broncos' nickel defense. Carrie spent a lot of time in the slot last season — his 394 snaps there were fourth most in the NFL — but the Broncos won't be dislodging Harris from the middle.
Mar 13 - 1:25 PM

According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, the Broncos "inquired" about RT Ja'Wuan James but were told he's not available.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Miami was shopping James, but they must have had a change of heart. There was thought that James could be a cap casualty, but after the Dolphins traded Jarvis Landry and cut Ndamukong Suh, that's no longer necessary. James showed well in 2017, earning PFF's No. 10 pass-blocking grade among 83 qualifiers at tackle. His fifth-year team option will be guaranteed on Wednesday.
Mar 13 - 12:55 PM's Ian Rapoport reports free agent A.J. McCarron could be an option for the Broncos.

That's if the Broncos miss out on fellow free agent Kirk Cousins. McCarron overlapped with Broncos coach Vance Joseph two years in Cincinnati. The Boston Globe has posited Buffalo as a potential landing spot for the soon-to-be ex-Bengal.
Mar 12 - 3:16 PM

NBC Boston's Michael Giardi reports interest in free agent Nate Solder is "off the charts," and that the Texans and Broncos appear to be "at the head of the class."

The MMQB's Peter King reported earlier Monday Houston is expected to be "all over" Solder. The Texans have a glaring need at left tackle after trading Duane Brown last season.
Mar 12 - 1:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "at least two teams" are willing to offer Kirk Cousins a three-year, fully guaranteed contract.

He adds another team is willing to offer a "nearly fully guaranteed" contract. RapSheet does not mention any names, but the Broncos, Vikings, Jets, and Cardinals are all safe bets. Cousins reportedly plans to take a few visits before making his final decision, so we likely will not know his destination until late this week.
Mar 12 - 9:03 AM

Rams acquired CB Aqib Talib from the Broncos in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

It's the Rams' second trade for a corner in two weeks, and gives DC Wade Phillips a veteran frontline starter to pair with volatile young pro Marcus Peters. The Broncos had decided that 32-year-old Talib was no longer worth his $11 million salary — the trade terms confirm the move is a salary dump — but he remained one of the league's better corners in 2017. Durable, Talib has remained extremely consistent. He's reuniting with Phillips after two years together in Denver. The Rams have done an excellent job of rebuilding their cornerback corps on the fly.
Mar 8 - 8:02 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos are "interested in" free agent Case Keenum.

Keenum would obviously be a secondary option to Kirk Cousins when free agency opens, but with Cousins possibly leaning toward signing with the Vikings, teams need to be making contingency plans. Klis doesn't know if Keenum is the Broncos' "Plan B" after Cousins, but he does believe Denver is interested in Keenum. There's a connection in Denver, with Gary Kubiak as senior personnel advisor to GM John Elway. Kubiak gave Keenum his NFL start with the Texans and spoke highly of Keenum in January. Keenum could land $16-20 million per year.
Mar 7 - 11:56 AM

NBC Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos are "very much in" on free agent Kirk Cousins.

That's "per team and player sources." There's a report out that Cousins is "down to" the Vikings and Jets, but the sides aren't technically even allowed to talk yet. (Emphasis on "technically.") The "legal tampering" — we really need to rename that — period begins next Monday before free agency kicks off that Wednesday.
Mar 5 - 2:55 PM

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports believes the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes will come down to the Broncos and Vikings.

Robinson reiterated Cousins' desire to play for a contender, which would seem to eliminate the Browns and Jets. Rather than sign a six or seven-year deal, which is customary for franchise QBs, Robinson expects Cousins to land a three or four-year pact in the range of $30 million annually with most of that money guaranteed. With over $48 million in available cap space, the Vikings could easily accommodate a contract of that magnitude. To afford Cousins, the Broncos ($23.8 million in cap space) may have to make some sacrifices.
Mar 2 - 7:38 PM

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Broncos are prepared to go "all-in" on free agent Kirk Cousins.

Robinson reports the Broncos have "examined scenarios" to clear up to $50 million in cap space this offseason. The Vikings have looked like the early favorites to land the market's top player, but the Broncos and Jets appear prepared to play ball. Cousins, at least temporarily, seems poised to become the highest-paid player in the league.
Mar 1 - 11:00 PM

VP of player personnel Doug Williams said the Redskins have not considered placing the franchise tag on impending free agent Kirk Cousins.

There were rumors Washington would tag Cousins in an effort to recoup something in a trade, but Williams put those to bed. "He’s a free agent for sure," Williams said. "I can’t remember one meeting where we talked about the possibility of tagging him." Cousins is going to hit the open market, and he will find a bevy of suitors when he does. The Vikings are believed to be the favorite to land his signature, but the Broncos and Jets will also make a run.
Mar 1 - 8:32 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos are "in talks" to acquire Redskins S Su'a Cravens.

Rapoport labels Denver as the "most likely landing spot" for Cravens, who stepped away from the game in 2017 after knee surgery and a bout with concussions. The former second-rounder is still just 22 years old and played 294 snaps as a rookie in 2016, receiving plus marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense, pass coverage, and pass rush. A safety-linebacker 'tweener, Cravens could be a replacement for impending free agent ILB Todd Davis.
Feb 28 - 3:52 PM

Pro Football Talk reports Kirk Cousins is not expected to agree to terms during the two-day negotiating period.

PFT adds the quarterback is expected "to take one or more visits" before making his decision. Those visits cannot begin until the league year opens on March 14. Since the rest of the quarterback market likely depends on where Cousins ends up and how much money he makes, it could be stalled for several days. The Vikings have emerged as the favorite to land Cousins, but the Jets and Broncos are also in the mix.
Feb 27 - 11:06 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seconded an ESPN New York report that the Jets are "willing to pay a lot of money to Kirk Cousins, maybe more than anyone else."

Rapsheet also noted the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as offensive coordinator; Bates' system is similar to what Cousins ran in Washington. When discussing the Jets' competition for Cousins, Rapsheet first mentioned the Broncos, whom he expects to "go all in on a free agent quarterback." Rapsheet said the Cardinals are "in the mix as well," and to "keep an eye" on the Vikings.
