On this page, we’ll be keeping track of all the moves made by the Broncos during free agency. Including, but not limited to, RFA tenders, scheduled meeting with free agents, credible rumors and, of course, signings.
We’ll also be debunking the not-so-credible rumors to keep you as informed as possible.
Between now and the end of the week, there is going to be a whole bunch of stuff to sift through, keep it here and we’ll do the sifting for you!
- Broncos to sign Case Keenum when free agency opens on Wednesday.
- Broncos tendered ERFA DL Shelby Harris ($705,000). Because he is an exclusive rights free agent, he is not able to negotiate with other teams. He’s a Bronco for 2018.
- Broncos tendered ERFA LS Casey Kreiter.
- Broncos tendered ERFA WR Jordan Taylor.
- Broncos tendered ERFA LB Joseph Jones.
- Broncos tendered ERFA LB Zaire Anderson.

- Broncos have notified the NFL that they will place a second-round center Matt Paradis ($2.914 million)

CREDIBLE QUARTERBACK RUMORS
- Multiple “quarterback-needy” teams have contacted Drew Brees’ representation.
- Kirk Cousins will take at least one visit, doesn’t want to be “Brock Osweiler” and sign where he doesn’t fit.
- The Vikings expect that visit to be to Minnesota as they are considered the front-runner.
- A.J. McCarron could be a target for the Broncos if Cousins doesn’t pan out.
OTHER CREDIBLE RUMORS
- Virgil Green to the Chargers.
- OL Nate Solder is set to sign a four-year, $62 million deal with the New York Giants
- This deal was considerably out of the Broncos price range
- Donald Stephenson heading to the Browns on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million.
- Packers to sign Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal.
- Broncos have extended an offer to unrestricted FA ILB Todd Davis.
- Broncos exercise option on Demaryius Thomas, trigger final two years of deal.
- Corey Nelson to sign elsewhere.
- Broncos inquired about Miami RT Ju’Waun James but Miami is expected to keep him.
- TE Trey Burton expected to sign with the Bears.
- C.J. Anderson is on the trade block. Broncos not expected to cut him “right now.”
- Keep in mind that “right now” is the operative phrase here.
- Jets, Patriots, Dolphins and 49ers have interest in Anderson.
- Broncos “at the head of the class” in race for Nate Solder, along with Pats and Texans.
BRONCOS FREE AGENT VISITS
