Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Working out in Florida ahead of spring practices
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch, who is working with a private tutor in Florida, has been in contact with new head coach Vance Joseph ahead of next month's team activities, the Broncos' official site reports.

Joseph told reporters that while Lynch has the physical traits to be a successful quarterback, taking up that mantle requires leadership and study -- a challenge Lynch is ready for. The comments seem to address rumors that have circulated claiming that Lynch showed some immaturity during his rookie season, which was primarily spent serving as Trevor Siemian's backup. So long as Lynch heeds his new coach's words, it'd be a surprise if he doesn't win the starting job come August. The second-year passer has a unique blend of size, athleticism and arm strength, and the switch in systems from the West Coast offense Denver used last season to a hybrid scheme under new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy would seem to fit those traits.

Broncos' Devontae Booker: Will see fresh faces on offensive line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have committed nearly $24 million in guarantees to free agent acquisitions Ronald Leary and Menelik Watson, 9News Denver reports. The newcomers are likely bolster an offensive line that gave Booker little room to run in 2016.

Leary comes to Denver from Dallas, where he helped form one of the league's top offensive line units. He is likely to play opposite Max Garcia in one of Denver's guard spots. With a revolving door at right tackle -- both in terms of rotation of players and how opposing rushers treated them -- in recent years and last year's left tackle Russell Okung off to Los Angeles, Watson provides Denver with the necessary athleticism to compete for either spot. The additions signal a commitment to fixing an offensive line that was sixth worst in the NFL in providing Booker and his stable-mates yards before contact, according to Pro Football Focus. Provided Denver, as expected, continues to address the line in the draft, expect Booker to have a somewhat easier time during his sophomore campaign.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: To run behind reinforced line in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have committed nearly $24 million in guarantees to free agent offensive linemen Ronald Leary and Menelik Watson, 9News Denver reports. The duo could both wind up paving rushing lanes for Anderson this season.

Much, perhaps too much, has been made of Denver moving away from Gary Kubiak's zone blocking scheme this season and new head coach Vance Joseph saying on multiple occasions that the team will mix gap and zone schemes. The real issue last season was mediocre talent along the offensive line, with Denver's line ranking as the sixth worst in the NFL in terms of yards before contact, according to Pro Football Focus. Leary, who played left guard in Dallas, should join the Broncos' top linemen from last season per Pro Football Focus, center Matt Paradis and guard Max Garcia, to form a quality interior line. Expect Watson, whose athleticism got him drafted in the second round in 2013, to compete in the wide-open competitions at both left and right tackle provided his injury woes don't follow him from Oakland. With further upgrades likely coming in the draft, look for Denver's line to give Anderson more room to work with in 2017.

Broncos' Kasim Edebali: Signs one-year deal with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edebali signed a one-year contract with the Broncos on Monday.

Edebali hasn't missed a game since coming into the league three years ago and racked up 54 tackles, eight sacks, three passes defensed, and one forced fumble along the way. He projects as a rotational linebacker for the Broncos behind Von Miller, Shane Ray, and Shaq Barrett.

Broncos' Donald Stephenson: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stephenson agreed to restructure his contract for the 2017 season in order to remain with the Broncos, The Denver Post reports.

Stephenson signed a three-year, $14 million dollar contract with the Broncos last March, but his first year with the team was largely a disappointment. Presumably to avoid the chopping block, he agreed to take just half of the $4 million he was guaranteed this upcoming season, although he can earn back the other half if he ultimately makes the 53-man roster come September.
