Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 30 Jan 2015 17:50:30 -0800
Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas discussed with Woody Paige and Les Shapiro on The Sports Show Friday, Jan. 30, the chances of him returning to the Broncos. "I really don't know. To be perfectly honest, it hasn't even been discussed for me yet," Thomas said. He did go on to say he'd love to come back, but he mentioned there are several important factors when determining where he'll sign.
Fantasy Tip: Until we know where Thomas signs, his value remains up in the air for the 2015 fantasy football season.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) said he's not worried at all about not passing the physical he's due to take March 1. His $19 million salary for the 2015 season would become guaranteed March 9 if he decides to come back, and he'll have to pass a physical to make sure he's good to go. "I don't see that physical being that significant to tell you the truth as far as that revelation," Manning said. "I feel pretty confident that I would pass that physical and my neck is in good shape."
Fantasy Tip: If Manning doesn't have any worries about his physical status, it sure seems like he'd be willing to return for an 18th season. However, that's still to be determined. If Manning returns, he still has some QB1 value left in him, but it'll be more of a risky proposition than ever before.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels comfortable in almost any offense "aside from the Delaware Blue Hen Wing T." He said that a change to a new offensive philosophy by head coach Gary Kubiak shouldn't be a problem.
Fantasy Tip: If Manning returns for another season, we doubt that he'd find trouble being productive in a new system if he sets his sights to learning it. However, he's unlikely to continue being an elite QB1 as his physical skills deteriorate, including his arm strength, mainly.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may make a decision on whether he plans to return for another season in the near future, according to his dad, Archie Manning. Archie thinks his son will make his decision "maybe in the next week or two." "He's given a lot of thought to it," Archie Manning said. "My advice for him is to go through the process, get away a little bit, let your leg heal, give it a lot of thought and decide what you're going to do … (I) think he's taken a good evaluation of where he is physically."
Fantasy Tip: If Manning returns for another season, it'll be very interesting to see what kind of offense new head coach Gary Kubiak will run with No. 18 at the helm. Kubiak will no doubt have to tailor his typical west coast offense to Manning's skillset. In 2015 if Manning returns, due to his physical limitations, he can still be a QB1 in the right matchups, but we shouldn't expect insane numbers like he's put up the last three seasons with Denver.

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak needs to implement an aggressive 3-4 defense, according to The Denver Post writer Mark Kiszla Wednesday Jan. 28. The Broncos defense is built for a 3-4 alignment with LB Von Miller as the focal point. Impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton should be retained and used at nose tackle, with Miller and DE DeMarcus Ware being used as outside linebackers.

Former Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips isn't the Denver Broncos' top choice as their next defensive coordinator. Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph is, but he's trying to get out of his contract with the Bengals, and the team won't know until Wednesday, Jan. 28. One option is to have Phillips serve as the defensive coordinator for a year and then move to a senior title with Joseph taking over in 2016.
