Rival teams are keeping a watchful eye on Broncos running back De’Angelo Henderson, Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post hears (on Twitter). The same goes for outside linebacker Jeff Holland, who may be a casualty of Saturday’s numbers crunch.
The Broncos figure to carry Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, and talented UDFA Phillip Lindsay on their Week 1 roster. That could leave Henderson – a 2017 sixth-round pick – on the outside looking in. The Broncos are also likely to keep fullback Andy Janovich on the roster, which takes one potential running back spot out of the equation.
If Henderson and Holland are released, it sounds like they’ll be a popular target for other teams. That interest may also lead to a trade in the coming days.
