Von Miller - LB Posted 4/15/14 4:06pm et
Denver Broncos LB Von Miller said his surgically repaired knee is feeling good and hopes to play better than he did before he suffered his injury. 'I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better. You come back and be the same guy it's like you go 'it's the same Von again' and I got to be better,' Miller said.
Huddle Up: Miller, who recorded 30 sacks and forced 9 fumbles in his first 2 seasons, has shed the extra 20 pounds that many feel hampered his play last season, and a healthy return could give the Broncos perhaps the league's best pass-rushing 1-2 punch with the signing of DeMarcus Ware.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 3/28/14 11:24am et
Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno will compete with RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas for the starting running back job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Remember last season when Miller was the hot fantasy back with upside? He ended up sharing with Thomas and underachieving dramatically. Now the Dolphins throw another back into the mix, making Miami's backfield a fantasy nightmare.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 3/25/14 2:04pm et
Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said the team is open to the idea of re-signing free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno this offseason.
Huddle Up: Moreno visited Miami last week but left without a contract, but even if he does wind up back in Denver, the Broncos sound like they want to elevate 2013 No. 2 pick Montee Ball to a starting role.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 3/20/14 11:10pm et
The Miami Dolphins will bring in free-agent RB Knowshon Moreno (Broncos) for a visit Friday, March 21.
Huddle Up: Finally, some free-agent RBs are starting to get some play, and Moreno will head to South Beach looking to cash in on his career season (1,586 yards from scrimmage, 13 TDs).

Emmanuel Sanders - WR Posted 3/16/14 3:43pm et
The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) to a three-year deal worth as much as $18 million. The deal includes $6 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Sanders, who notched career highs with 67 catches, 740 yards and 6 TDs this past season, carries some health risks with his history of foot injuries, but there's no denying his significant fantasy upside as the replacement for Eric Decker (87- 1,288-11) in the Peyton Mannning-led attack.

Demarcus Ware - DE Posted 3/12/14 3:28pm et
The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with unrestricted free-agent DE DeMarcus Ware (Cowboys) on a three-year, $30 million deal that includes $20 million in guaranteed money. Ware will make $13 million this season, which is $250,000 more than he was scheduled to make had the Dallas Cowboys not cut him. He will make $7 million guaranteed for 2015, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Broncos continue to spend in free agency in hopes of winning one more Super Bowl before Peyton Manning retires. They reportedly offered the same sort of contract to Vikings free agent Jared Allen, but Ware was first to grab the offer.

Andre Caldwell - WR Posted 3/11/14 4:34pm et
The Denver Broncos are re-signing WR Andre Caldwell to a two-year deal worth as much as $3.45 million Tuesday, March 11, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Caldwell caught only 16 passes for 200 yards and 3 scores as the Broncos' No. 4 WR a season ago, but he stands to move up a significant notch if Denver loses FA wideout Eric Decker.

Champ Bailey - CB Posted 3/6/14 8:03pm et
The Denver Broncos officially released CB Champ Bailey Thursday, March 6.
Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 36-year-old DB had a great 10-year run in the Mile High City, and it was simply time for the two sides to part with Bailey due $10 million his coming season. He should find a suitor at a much lower pricetag, but his future most likely lies at safety rather than on the corner.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 3/3/14 1:18am et
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will undergo his postseason exam on his neck Monday, March 3. He already passed his exit physical after the Super Bowl.
Huddle Up: Fantasy's highest-scoring player in 2013 will turn 38 later this month, but everything is expected to check out just fine three years removed now from his neck procedures.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 3/3/14 2:21pm et
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (neck) was fully cleared for the 2014 season by a doctor after having his neck examined Monday, March 3.
Huddle Up: It's a stipulation of Manning's contract that he have the annual exam. With no red flags, he'll be back under center to pile up yardage and scores in 2014.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 2/27/14 12:51pm et
The Indianapolis Colts are among the teams that have interest in Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Eric Decker, should he hit the market.
Huddle Up: Decker will have plenty of suitors if he hits the open market as expected, and the Colts would certainly be a good fit given their WR needs following Reggie Wayne's injury last season.

Von Miller - LB Posted 2/25/14 2:34pm et
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said LB Von Miller grew up a lot this past year while dealing with a six-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy and then suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in December. 'He's done a tremendous job of doing the right things and everything he's supposed to be doing. So hopefully he can continue to do that, because we'd love Von to be back to the Von we know he can be,' Elway said.
Huddle Up: Miller, who had a combined 32 sacks and 9 forced fumbles over his first 2 seasons, saw those numbers fall to 5 and 3 in 9 games during his truncated 2013 campaign. He's certainly a prime bounce-back candidate, but keep in mind his ACL tear didn't happen until Week 16, and his recovery might hinder his early-season production this coming fall.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 2/22/14 8:53pm et
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said impending free-agent WR Eric Decker likely will hit the free-agent market this offseason.
Huddle Up: This is Elway's way of acknowledging that some other team will pay Decker like a WR1 while Denver already has a WR1 and couldn't afford to match such a deal. Of course, Decker could decide that the advantages to catching balls from Peyton Manning outweigh getting paid like a WR1, but that's a less likely scenario.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 2/22/14 8:53pm et
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said the team will not need to ask QB Peyton Manning to restructure his contract because they have enough salary cap space to afford his salary. Manning is scheduled to make $20 million next season if his neck checked out medically.
Huddle Up: The Broncos appear to have the ability to squeeze Peyton's sizeable deal under the newly-increased salary cap, so they won't have to ask him to rework his deal--though that could change if Manning wants to keep Eric Decker around.

Wes Welker - WR Posted 2/22/14 8:54pm et
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said he expects WR Wes Welker to return to the team next season because he is under contract.
Huddle Up: Unless Welker decides the concussions have taken too great a toll he'll be back in the slot for Peyton Manning and the Broncos. And if Eric Decker leaves via free agency, Welker's numbers are likely to climb.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 2/18/14 6:55pm et
Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Eric Decker said he would welcome a call from the team if they can get on the same page, but said he has to do what is best for his family.
Huddle Up: All indications are the Broncos will allow Decker to hit the open market, and that most likely means he's as good as gone as he figures to command WR1 money -- something the Broncos aren't likely to match.

Andre Caldwell - WR Posted 2/17/14 12:16am et
The Denver Broncos may be willing to re-sign impending free-agent WR Andre Caldwell if they are comfortable with the price. The team likely does not see Caldwell as more than a No. 4 wide receiver at this point.
Huddle Up: Even if the Broncos do lose Eric Decker in free agency, it doesn't sound like Caldwell would get a starting promotion if he remains in the Mile High City. He had 16 catches for 200 yards and a career-high matching 3 TDs this past season.

Montee Ball - RB Posted 2/13/14 8:48pm et
Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball said he wants to start next season and receive most of the carries. He said he will believe he will have a good offseason and perform better next season.
Huddle Up: With Knowshon Moreno a free agent, Ball has a good shot to get his wish. Ball started slow in his rookie season, but was nearly getting 50 percent of the touches in many late-season contests.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 2/9/14 4:52pm et
Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker said he does not know what his future holds. 'I would love to come back. I don't know my future either,' Decker said.
Huddle Up: Decker is in line for a rather sizable bump in pay wherever he lands, but there remains some question as to whether he's fully suited to be a clear-cut No. 1 WR.

Wes Welker - WR Posted 2/9/14 10:43pm et
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will count $8 million against the 2014 salary cap. They have a $3 million roster bonus due to him in March.
Huddle Up: With 73 catches for 778 yards had his worst season since 2006, his final season with the Dolphins, but his value to the Broncos came in the red zone, where he hauled in a career-high 10 TD catches. Look for him to remain in the Mile High City.

Joel Dreessen - TE Posted 2/5/14 11:00pm et
The Denver Broncos may release TEs Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen this offseason in order to create some salary cap space. Tamme is scheduled to have a $3.5 million salary cap figure next season, while Dreessen is scheduled to have a cap figure of over $3 million.
Huddle Up: While both Tamme and Dreessen are solid players, neither is a must-have in the Broncos' Peyton Manning-led attack. Of course, the advantages to catching passes from Manning are obvious so one or both of the veteran tight ends could opt to re-work their deal in order to save the Broncos some money and remain in Denver.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 2/4/14 4:40pm et
Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman claimed the team cracked the Denver Broncos' offense and figured out some of QB Peyton Manning's signals. 'All we did was play situational football,' Sherman said. 'We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes. Then we figured out the hand signals for a few of the route audibles in the first half.'
Huddle Up: Whatever the case, the Seahawks appeared to get a little more out of the 2-week Super Bowl prep period than the Broncos.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 2/4/14 4:40pm et
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno is set to become a free agent, and he seems unlikely to return despite a 1,000-yard season after the team used a second-round pick on RB Montee Ball in 2013.
Huddle Up: Moreno hit career highs in 2013, and became the first RB in franchise history with 1,000 rushing and 500 receiving yards in the same season but likely will be allowed to test the open market first with Denver facing a number of difficult free-agent decisions this offseason.

Demaryius Thomas - WR Posted 2/4/14 11:52pm et
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas who set a Super Bowl record with 13 catches against the Seattle Seahawks, played through a separated shoulder that he sustained in the first quarter of the game.
Huddle Up: It was the second shoulder issue of the season for Thomas,who was targeted on more than a third (18) of Manning's 49 Super Bowl pass attempts. Still, he'll now have the offseason to rest up and will be a top-five fantasy wideout heading into 2014 drafts.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 2/2/14 4:35pm et
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is 12 years, 250 days older than Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. That is the largest age difference between starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl history.
Huddle Up: Manning, of course, had the far better fantasy year with 165 more Huddle Performance points than his Seattle counterpart, but as far as Sunday's outcome is concerned, QBs will no prior Super Bowl experience are actually 4-2 in the Big Game vs. QBs who have previously won in the last 14 years.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 2/2/14 5:54pm et
The Denver Broncos plan to allow WR Eric Decker to test the free-agent market in March. The team fears they may lose him in free agency.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on in the Super Bowl as Decker could bump up his market value exponentially with a big performance on the national stage.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 2/2/14 11:45pm et
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed a Super Bowl-record 34 passes in 49 attempts for 280 yards, a TD and 2 interceptions Sunday, Feb. 2 in the 43-9 Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: It was the hollowest of records for Manning, whose season for the books ended with a devastating thud against the swarming, turnover- hungry Seahawks. Manning didn't a get much help from his overwhelmed offensive line or running game, but the top takeaway from this non- competitive game is that dominating defense still has a prominent place, even in today's offensive-oriented NFL.

Knowshon Moreno - RB Posted 1/30/14 1:21pm et
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ribs) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 29.
Huddle Up: As expected, the rib issue from the AFC title game doesn't appear to be any factor this week for Moreno, who could be playing his last game for the Broncos.

Peyton Manning - QB Posted 1/30/14 1:27pm et
The Super Bowl XLVIII weather forecast keeps getting better by the day, As of now, the high for Sunday is expected to be 46 degrees in East Rutherford, N.J., which likely means the game will at least kick off in the 40s. The low for the day will be 26. Winds are expected to be mild between 6-8 mph.
Huddle Up: This affects Manning the most, and the 37-year-old QB particularly has to like the relatively calm wind forecast in the notoriously breezy Meadowlands. In short, it looks like the Big Game might actually remain in its Sunday timeslot after all.

Wes Welker - WR Posted 1/30/14 8:46pm et
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker said he is not thinking of retirement anytime soon, even if he wins a Super Bowl on Sunday. "Of course it would be a good way to end it, but I am still having fun," Welker said. "I am still enjoying the game. I feel good, and as long as I am out there having fun, I will continue to play."
Huddle Up: Another concussion could alter the outlook for the still-productive slot wideout, who will turn 33 on May 1, but, in the meantime, expect Welker back in orange and blue.
