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.

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.

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.
May 1 - 2:44 PM

49ers acquired RB Kapri Bibbs and a fifth-round pick from the Broncos for a fourth-round pick in 2018.

Bibbs tallied 129 yards on 29 carries last year while filling a change-of-pace role behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. In San Francisco, he'll serve as backfield depth behind injury-prone starter Carlos Hyde.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Broncos have had trade up talks with the Titans, who select at No. 5.

The scuttlebutt has the Broncos eyeing offensive linemen, but that kind of rocket move from No. 20 would likely be with something else in mind. The Titans also own the No. 18 overall pick, which would be a more reasonable move. The Broncos have been connected to Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey most of the offseason, but it's unlikely GM John Elway would mortgage the farm to move up 15 spots for a running back.
Apr 27 - 3:31 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos are "exploring" trading up on Thursday evening.

Desperate to improve the Broncos' offensive line, GM John Elway must believe his player might not be there at No. 20. In one of the weakest tackle classes in years, if not ever, Alabama's Cam Robinson is one of the top players available. Utah's Garett Bolles is another name to monitor.
Apr 27 - 2:06 PM

Broncos GM John Elway said the team likes Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey "a lot."

Unfortunately for Elway, it is unlikely McCaffrey is still on the board when he gets his first chance to pick at No. 20, but the comment suggests Denver could be the running back's floor. A versatile weapon with the patience and vision to thrive in a three-down role despite a lack of ideal size, a case can be made for McCaffrey as the best running back in this draft. As long as the landing spot cooperates, McCaffrey will be one of a couple players worth a look at 1.01 in rookie drafts.

Broncos RB Zac Brooks has announced his retirement.

The No. 247 overall pick of last year's draft, Brooks was waived by the Seahawks in August. He ended up spending most of the year on the Broncos' practice squad. He was signed to a reserve/future contract in January. 23, Brooks had previously retired from football to pursue a career in interior design, but ultimately decided to declare for last year's draft. His retirement will likely be final this time around.
Apr 20 - 5:46 PM

Free agent NT Terrance Knighton has officially retired.

Knighton fell out of the league in 2016 and didn't draw any interest this offseason. He had an eight-year career as a run stopper, starting of 96-of-108 games. Knighton plans to pursue a job in coaching.
Apr 12 - 7:50 PM's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers, Broncos and Redskins "loom" for Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey.

McCaffrey to the Panthers at No. 8 has been the rumor du jour the past few days, while he was previously linked to the Broncos at No. 20. The Redskins at No. 17 are new. There have been multiple recent reports that McCaffrey could go in the top 10, but it still seems a little far-fetched. There's no question all three teams badly need running back help.
Apr 6 - 2:32 PM

MMQB's Peter King believes the door is "still three percent open" for retired Tony Romo to return to football.

"He misses it," King wrote. "He will miss it in August." King did a podcast with Romo last summer and believes the "passion and excitement" for playing still runs deep in Romo. Per King, the Texans were serious about Romo once he was granted his release by Dallas, but the Broncos were never really interested.

Apr 5 - 10:41 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports neither the Broncos nor Texans will trade for Tony Romo.

The Cowboys have given Romo permission to speak with other teams in an effort to drum up trade interest, but both Denver and Houston are holding their ground. Dallas is doing everything they can to get something in return for Romo, but they are going to be forced to release him unless a surprise team enters the picture.
Apr 3 - 7:11 PM

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Tony Romo "is a non-issue."

"We haven't had one meeting about Romo," Joseph added. Considering John Elway said the Broncos have no "intent" to pursue Romo even if he is released, it is pretty clear Denver wants to put this situation to bed. It looks like it is Texans or retirement for Romo at this point.
Mar 28 - 10:36 AM

The Denver Channel's Troy Renck believes the Broncos "haven’t closed the door" on Tony Romo.

A previous report suggested it’s the Texans or retirement for Romo. The Broncos aren’t going to trade Dallas anything, but aren’t ruling out signing Romo if/when he becomes a free agent. Houston remains Romo's most likely landing spot.
Mar 24 - 7:11 PM

49ers signed LB Dekoda Watson, formerly of the Broncos, to a three-year, $6-million contract.

A seventh-round pick of the Bucs in 2010, Watson has bounced around the league the last three seasons, spending time with the Cowboys, Jags, and Patriots before appearing in 16 games with the Broncos in 2016. Perhaps he will compete for a role in the 49ers' lackluster defense, but his biggest contributions have come on special teams to this point.
Mar 18 - 9:42 AM

Free agent LB Dekoda Watson visited the Seahawks on Thursday.

A reserve linebacker, Watson spent 2016 with the Broncos. He makes his mark on special teams.
Mar 16 - 5:10 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline "consistently heard daily rumors" at the Combine that the Broncos could make Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey their first-round pick.

Pauline drew on Broncos GM John Elway's relationship with the McCaffrey family after playing with Ed in Denver, in addition to Elway's college background having schooled at Stanford. Pauline suggests McCaffrey wouldn't necessarily take over as the Broncos' feature back, instead operating as an all-purpose weapon who also returns punts and kicks. The Broncos pick at No. 20 overall.
Mar 15 - 11:24 PM

Rams signed CB Kayvon Webster, formerly of the Broncos, to a two-year, $8-million contract.

He can earn another $4 million via incentives. Webster will reunite with ex-DC Wade Phillips, who he played under for two seasons with the Broncos. Stuck behind a stellar trio of corners in Denver, Webster should be given a shot to earn a starting job with the Rams.
Mar 13 - 11:05 PM

Ex-Cowboys and Broncos OLB DeMarcus Ware has announced his retirement after 12 seasons.

"After a lot of thought and prayer, I've decided to accept the unknown and retire from my NFL career," Ware said in a poignant statement. Going on 35, Ware has remained an effective pass rusher, but been plagued by back issues. He is probably smart to quit while he's ahead. The No. 11 pick of the 2005 draft out of small-school Troy, Ware rolled up 138.5 career sacks, 117 of which came with the Cowboys. He's eighth all time on the quarterback takedown list. The four-time first-team All-Pro will be Canton-bound.
