  • Broncos Sign Tommy Hudson

    Headshot for Tommy Hudson

    The Denver Broncos signed free-agent tight end Tommy Hudson to an undisclosed deal on Wednesday, according to a source. Hudson spent time with the Tennessee Titans each of the last three years and had three catches for 31 yards in 2021. He was among five veterans who tried out during the team's rookie minicamp a few weeks ago. The 26-year-old will strictly be competing for a roster spot during training camp this summer and will probably be a long shot to make the roster. Denver also let go of running back Jacques Patrick on Wednesday to make room for Hudson. Patrick last played in the XFL this spring and had 115 carries for 443 yards for the San Antonio Brahmas.

    The Broncos jettisoned their nine-year kicker last week, moving on from the final link to their Super Bowl 50 roster. In place of Brandon McManus, the team will bring in a far less experienced option. Denver is adding Elliott Fry on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of tweets. The McManus cut left no kickers on the […]

  • Russell Wilson Says He's "Leaner and Meaner"

    Headshot for Russell Wilson

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson (knee) admitted that he's "leaner and meaner" this offseason and dropped weight as he prepares for his second season with the team in 2023. He's in a good place mentally and physically. But what fantasy managers want to know is if that will translate to a bounce-back campaign. The 34-year-old signal-caller looked washed up with the Broncos in 2022, and he also had arthroscopic surgery on his knee over the winter. Denver still has plenty of weapons around Wilson, and he should be better set up for success under new head coach Sean Payton. Still, most fantasy managers probably aren't touching him after last year, and he should be considered a midrange QB2, at best, heading into fall drafts.

  • Javonte Williams Limited At OTAs

    Headshot for Javonte Williams

    Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams (knee) was present, dressed and participated in the team's walkthrough at organized team activities on Thursday. "He's working in a limited capacity," head coach Sean Payton said. The Broncos are bringing Williams along slowly, but it's a good sign he's doing anything at all this early in the offseason. The 23-year-old has made great progress from ACL and LCL tears in Week 4 of last year, but he's still not a guarantee to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. Even if Williams suits up for the season opener, Samaje Perine is expected to have an expanded role early in the year. Williams has shown already in flashes that he has RB1 fantasy upside, but injury concerns have drop will drop his ADP to that of an RB2 this fall.

  • Brandon McManus Released By Broncos

    Headshot for Brandon McManus

    Longtime Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus has been released by the organization after posting his worst field goal percentage since 2017 last season. McManus converted on 28 of his 36 field goal attempts (77.8%) and 25 of his 27 extra-point attempts (92.6%) -- which were both the second-worst clips in a season during his nine years with the team. McManus has had a few top-12 fantasy scoring seasons among kickers, so if he lands on a team with a good offense, he may be firmly on the fantasy radar in 2023. He'll likely at least get a tryout with a team before the season begins.

  • Lloyd Cushenberry The Favorite To Retain Starting Job At Center

    Headshot for Russell Wilson

    Denver Broncos center Lloyd Cushenberry missed nine games last season with a hip injury, but he's still probably the favorite to retain the starting center job heading into the 2023 regular season. However, the former third-round pick in 2020 could be pushed by second-year player Luke Wattenberg, seventh-round rookie Austin Forsyth or veteran addition Kyle Fuller. The Broncos didn't draft an offensive tackle and haven't signed one outside of Mike McGlinchey so far in the offseason. In each of the last three seasons, Cushenberry has been the team's starter under center. If he stays healthy in training camp, quarterback Russell Wilson should be taking snaps from him again in Week 1.

  • Montrell Washington To Face Competition For Return Role

    Denver Broncos return man Montrell Washington accounted for 32 of the team's 37 punt returns and 18 of its 24 kickoff returns as a rookie fifth-rounder in 2022. He averaged 8.47 yards per punt return, which ranked 10th in the league, but he also fumbled a combined five times and displayed questionable decision-making as a kick returner. Washington has top-flight speed and good instincts in the open field, but he'll face significant competition for the return job this summer, mainly from second-round rookie wideout Marvin Mims. Receiver Kendall Hinton also has some experience returning punts, and the Broncos are sure to look at some undrafted rookies in the role as well.

  • Randy Gregory In Good Health

    Headshot for Randy Gregory

    Denver Broncos pass-rusher Randy Gregory (knee), who played in just six games in 2022 due to knee injuries, is doing well this offseason. "Randy is doing well. (We are in) Phase 2, and he's been here," head coach Sean Payton said. "He's in good health. Again, in Phase 2 we're doing a lot of the teaching, but he's doing well and looks good." A bounce-back season for Gregory, the team's top pass-rusher, is extremely important for Denver's defense this year. After Gregory got hurt and Bradley Chubb was traded to Miami in 2022, the Broncos' pass-rush numbers plummeted. Outside of Gregory, the Broncos have few proven pass-rushing commodities heading into the 2023 season, so his health will be worth watching this summer at training camp.

  • Samaje Perine Figures To Have Significant Role

    Headshot for Samaje Perine

    Regardless of whether Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams (knee) is ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season, Samaje Perine figures to have a significant role in the team's offense in his first year in Denver. It may not be the most sizable workload he's had in his career -- he had a career-high 175 carries for 603 yards in his rookie year with Washington -- but it should be a decent role nonetheless. "When we signed Samaje, this is a guy that gave us flexibility," head coach Sean Payton said. "We signed him because we knew he was durable and reliable. We felt like we got another solid runner who's built in a strong way." The 27-year-old averaged 4.4 yards per carry and also caught 76 passes in the last three seasons with the Bengals, so he'll be a necessary handcuff for those that draft Williams in 2023.

  • Broncos Re-Sign Tyreik McAllister

    The Denver Broncos re-signed running back Tyreik McAllister to an undisclosed deal and also waived wide receiver Dallas Daniels, cornerback Darrious Gaines, tight end Kris Leach and running back Emanuel Wilson in corresponding moves. All four players had been signed as college free agents before rookie minicamp. McAllister spent a portion of last season on the team's practice squads after spending the offseason competing with Denver. In his final season at Charleston, he ran for 1,090 yards and 13 touchdowns on 143 carries. The Broncos had waived the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder last Friday before bringing him back earlier this week.

  • Ben DiNucci To Sign With Denver

    Headshot for Ben DiNucci

    Free-agent quarterback Ben DiNucci agreed to an undisclosed deal with Denver on Sunday. DiNucci appeared in three regular-season games during his NFL career, all with the Cowboys in 2020, totaling 219 yards and completing 53.5% of his attempts. He was recently a top signal-caller in the XFL in 2023, playing in 10 games for Seattle and amassing 2,671 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He also found the end zone three more times on the run. The 26-year-old has a shot to make the Week 1 roster. However, DiNucci still isn't worth much on the fantasy end.

  • Javonte Williams Could Be Ready For Training Camp

    Headshot for Javonte Williams

    According to Broncos head coach Sean Payton, running back Javonte Williams could be ready for the beginning of training camp. The 23-year-old tore his ACL and MCL in Week 4 of last season and has been working his way back since. Of course, Williams' status for the start of the season may not be revealed until closer to Week 1. But even if he misses a few games to begin the 2023-24 campaign, he might dodge a trip to the PUP list, which would be fantastic news. That said, managers who select Williams in fantasy drafts should strongly consider picking up Samaje Perine, who totaled six touchdowns with the Bengals in 2022-23, as an insurance policy.

  • Broncos Ink 15 Undrafted Free Agents

    The Denver Broncos signed 15 undrafted free-agent players on Friday. The list includes South Carolina tight end Nate Adkins, Iowa inside linebacker Seth Benson, Princeton offensive guard Henry Byrd, Jackson State wide receiver Dallas Daniels, Western Colorado cornerback Darrious Gaines, Houston cornerback Art Green, Incarnate Word wide receiver Taylor Grimes, Old Dominion outside linebacker Marcus Haynes, Central Michigan outside linebacker Thomas Incoom, South Florida offensive tackle Demontrey Jacobs, Kent State tight end Kris Leach, Youngstown State running back Jaleel McLaughlin, Penn State nose tackle P.J. Mustipher, Illinois offensive tackle Alex Palczewski and Fort Valley State running back Emanuel Wilson.

  • Broncos Re-Sign Starting Safety Kareem Jackson

    Headshot for Kareem Jackson

    The Denver Broncos re-signed safety Kareem Jackson to a one-year deal on Monday. The 35-year-old has been their starting strong safety each year since 2019 and made over 80 combined tackles each season since 2020. Last season, he set a career-high with 39 assists and 94 combined tackles, as well as two fumble recoveries, two tackles for loss, and three pass defenses. Jackson has consistently been on the field for more than 95% of the Broncos' defensive snaps over his four years in Denver. He doesn't profile as a starting IDP player, except in the deepest of leagues, but his experience and production as a tackler does help maintain the strength of the Broncos defensive unit.

  • Marvin Mims Should Have Specific Role In Rookie Season

    Headshot for Marvin Mims

    The Denver Broncos' current depth chart suggests that rookie wide receiver Marvin Mims might have a hard time seeing the field in his first NFL season. Denver has experienced depth in Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and others. However, new head coach Sean Payton will design a very specific role for Mims that allows him to get on the field, even if it's not in a high-volume role. Mims' ability to stretch defenses will make him an important puzzle piece as the Broncos try to resuscitate an offense that finished last in the NFL in scoring in 2022. The 21-year-old was taken 63rd overall in the second round this year. Mims won't really be on the fantasy radar in single-year leagues to begin 2023, but he'll be one to keep an eye on.

  • Ben Dinucci Has Tryout With Broncos

    Headshot for Ben DiNucci

    Free-agent quarterback Ben DiNucci recently had a tryout with the Denver Broncos. The 26-year-old is coming off a strong season in the XFL. He led the league in pass attempts (421), yards (2,966), and passing touchdowns (23). Dinucci is a former seventh-round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2020. He played in three games during his rookie season, started once against the Philadelphia Eagles. He threw for 180 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in a 23-9 loss to Philly. The Broncos already have Russell Wilson as their starter with Jarrett Stidham expected to be the backup. Possibly, Dinucci is able to earn a spot on the practice squad, but it's unlikely he beats out Stidham for the backup job.
