breakdown by pos

QB year started off awful but Drew lock had a good last 5 starts if he progessive more should be a cutler type
RB/FB Lindrey is souild but he needs more help this broncos off needs to have 2/3 good RB for it to be good jano is perfect for this off
WR Sutton couild be the best WR in the NFL by 2022 he needs a young running mate Patrick and Hamilton are num 3 types
Te fant is a young jimmy graham should keep growing Beck cut form ne got better and betther esp when lock played
OL they were awful esp at OT OG/C IS not that bad but can't pass block Denver must get at least 2/3 new starters here
DL Fangio really worked his magic here getting nobody's like mike Purcell Demarcus walker to play well hopefully Denver can sign one of wolfe harris back Dremont jones IS A growing player
LB strong here with miller chubb and breakout star alexander Johnson plus good role guys like ilb j jewell m redd J Attougbuh J Hollins Denver is set here
CB Harris jr is unlikely to be back hopefully Bryce callian is healpy to play slot CB denver needs 2 CB'S 1 vet and 1 pick
S very good shape here Simmons and Jackson are the best S tadum in the NFL Marshall can be the 3rd S here Parks might be back for depth
K/PKRPR Mcmanas is up/down but $ from inside 50 yards waldlum is awful D Spener is one of the best return man u don't know about

overall
with 65 mil in space plus atother 15 mil easyey cut and with 5 top 100 picks Denver couild win 2-3 more games but the big jump couild be 2021 look at SF in their 3rd year of that off

likely the broncos are looking at 8-8 10-6 for the 2020 season as I feel Denver needs 1 more year before making a big move up

I wouild guess 9-7 6-2 at home losing to KC TENN and 3-5 on the road beating ATL CAR and JETS or pitt

A 4th for Bouye? I know his cap is 13m, but that seems like a steal. What am I missing?
Jags created $9m in cap space with the trade ($13m salary minus $4m in dead signing bonus), getting them up to about $31m total. Theory is that the Jags really need the flexibility to tag Ngakoue (with whatever form the tag takes).

Nice move for the Broncos, for sure. Bouye is signed for $13m each this and next season with no dead money if cut, which is a great leverage point for the team to explore a new deal.

Broncos agreed to terms with C Graham Glasgow, formerly of the Lions, on a four-year, $44 million contract.

Entering his age-28 season, Glasgow has experience at both center and guard. 2019 Broncos starters C Connor McGovern and RG Ronald Leary are free agents, but we'd expect Glasgow to take over at the center spot for McGovern at this point. Either way, offensive line was a huge need area for this team as it tries to protect Drew Lock headed into his sophomore campaign. Glasgow started 58 games over his first four seasons for the Lions after being selected No. 95 overall in 2016

Browns acquired FB Andy Janovich from the Broncos in exchange for a 2021 seventh-round pick.
Signed to a three-year, $5.7 million extension last October, Janovich became expendable in a matter of months since new OC Pat Shurmur's scheme typically disregards any need for a viable fullback. For reference, Vikings FB C.J. Ham was in on 35 percent of the team's offensive snaps under Kevin Stefanski last year, additionally seeing 26 targets as a threat in the flats. 27 in May, Janovich should be cleared for Cleveland's offseason workouts after battling through a torn pectoral and dislocated right elbow last season.
Jets signed C Connor McGovern, formerly of the Broncos, to a three-year, $27 million contract.
McGovern will get $18 million guaranteed as the Jets desperately try to address their below-average offensive line with other free agents landing elsewhere. Sam Darnold needs a better supporting cast to take another leap forward, and McGovern is an okay first step but more pieces are needed. McGovern started 31-of-32 possible games for the Broncos over the last two seasons.

Broncos are expected to sign Lions' Jeff Driscoll as their backup QB per source. He came up in Darius Slay-Chris Harris Jr. trade talks at deadline last year. Driscoll a great athlete, ran 4.56 -- fastest among QBs -- at Combine in 2016. #9sports mike kils worte that your tom e curran

Broncos signed QB Jeff Driskel, formerly of the Lions.

Driskel made three surprise starts in 2019 with Matthew Stafford (back) sidelined, and he apparently showcased enough upside to earn a contract with the Broncos. Driskel never looked comfortable as a passer but at least rushed for 50 yards per start. Expect him to compete for the backup job behind Drew Lock this offseason.

Broncos acquired DT Jurrell Casey from the Titans in exchange for a 2020 seventh-round pick.
30-year-old Casey remains under contract through 2022 but his guarantees expire after this season. The Broncos were knowingly in the market for an interior threat along their defensive line and the Titans likely didn't mind budging from Casey knowing Derrick Henry's extension is on the table. Denver's willingness to take on Casey's remaining $41.2 million over the next three years didn't hurt matters. While his play tailed off due to a nagging shoulder injury last year, Casey has quietly averaged a durable 806 snaps per season since 2012 and remains one of the league's most forceful run-stuffers going,

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Broncos signed free agent RB Melvin Gordon.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it's a two-year, $16 million deal with $13.5 million guaranteed. The Broncos could certainly use an additional weapon or two on offense for second-year QB Drew Lock, but addressing the RB position is curious considering Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman were largely fine in 2019. MGIII is certainly the better pass-down RB from the group, although Lindsay (4.9 YPC) and Freeman (3.9) have had similar-to-better success over their careers on a per-rush basis compared to Gordon (4). This is a complete mess as far as fantasy is concerned, as a committee backfield is incredibly likely unless we see an additional move take place.

Broncos signed TE Nick Vannett, formerly of the Steelers, to a two-year contract.
Vannett will be nothing more than a depth option and run-blocking tight end behind last year's first-round pick Noah Fant. The 27-year-old has compiled 591 receiving yards through four NFL seasons.

Broncos signed P Sam Martin, formerly of the Lions, to a three-year, $7.1 million contract.

After being selected with a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Martin has spent all seven of his years with the Lions, so he definitely has received his fair share of in-game reps. Martin was considered one of the top punters on the market.

Broncos re-signed DL Shelby Harris to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Coming off a career year, Harris committed in January to testing free agency, but he was greeted by a surprisingly cold market. Now the 28-year-old returns as a major bargain for the Broncos, though another $750,000 is available through incentives. A 16-game starter last season, Harris notched six sacks while performing well against the run. He's a strong presence along the Broncos' interior.
