Here’s the latest on the Broncos, with all links going to Troy Renck of Denver7’s Twitter:
- The Broncos are expected to chase big names when free agency opens, including safety Adrian Amos (link). Amos is reportedly searching for $9MM-10MM per year, so it could be a costly acquisition for Denver. The Broncos could be willing to spend for him, however, given Amos’ connection with new head coach Vic Fangio.
- The Broncos have had good conversations with the reps for center Matt Paradis and linebacker Shaquil Barrett, but the plan remains for both to test free agency, Renck hears (link). Barrett says he wants a starting role, so that could be a factor in where he lands. Paradis, meanwhile, is one of the best available centers in free agency, and he has drawn interest from the Jets.
- The Broncos also have interest in re-signing Jared Veldheer, but they’re likely to let him test free agency before getting deep into negotiations (link). Instead, the Broncos could turn their attention to right tackle Ja’Wuan James, who could leave the Dolphins in free agency this week.
