NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seconded an ESPN New York report that the Jets are "willing to pay a lot of money to Kirk Cousins, maybe more than anyone else."

Rapsheet also noted the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as offensive coordinator; Bates' system is similar to what Cousins ran in Washington. When discussing the Jets' competition for Cousins, Rapsheet first mentioned the Broncos, whom he expects to "go all in on a free agent quarterback." Rapsheet said the Cardinals are "in the mix as well," and to "keep an eye" on the Vikings.

MMQB's Peter King's "best guess" is Kirk Cousins signs with the Broncos.

King made sure to call it a guess, but it is likely a highly educated one. King reports Cousins "has put a premium on going somewhere he can win, somewhere with a good defense, and somewhere he can walk into the building every day excited about going to work." It is unclear how well the Broncos fit the final condition, but the defense remains stout and should put the team in a position to win more often than not if Cousins provides competent quarterback play. Denver will have to beat out the Jets, Vikings, and likely several other teams to land Cousins' signature.

Impending free agent Kirk Cousins implied he'd have interest in signing with the Broncos this offseason.

"I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open to anything and everything. I’m in the information-gathering stage," said Cousins. When asked specifically about the Broncos, Cousins said he'd "love it if Denver is interested." Von Miller and C.J. Anderson have both advocated for Cousins to join the Broncos, who have been plagued by subpar quarterback play the last few seasons. With the Redskins now committed to Alex Smith, Cousins should have no shortage of suitors on the open market. The Broncos, Browns, Cardinals, Jaguars, Jets and Vikings will all be in the mix.

Speaking at the Super Bowl on Wednesday, Broncos OLB Von Miller said, "We need Kirk [Cousins]. I would like to have Kirk."

"Kirk could take us over the edge," Miller continued. The Broncos currently sit in the middle of the pack in 2018 cap space at just over $26 million, but space can be created rather easily in the NFL. GM John Elway is going to do everything in his power to get at least one new quarterback in the building after the Broncos have missed the playoffs two consecutive seasons with Trevor Siemian. Expect Denver to be right there with the Jets and others in pursuit of Cousins.

Cardinals hired ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator.

Although the move is not yet official, it is expected to soon be formalized. The Chargers' head coach from 2013-16, McCoy was fired mid-season by the Broncos last year. Dealing with a hopeless quarterback situation, McCoy couldn't make the offense go. Before the head gig in San Diego, McCoy was Peyton Manning's play-caller in Denver. He also coordinated Tim Tebow's offense in the Mile High City. He's an experienced hire, albeit one who doesn't really move the needle. With the Cardinals having zero signal callers under contract, there's no guarantee McCoy's quarterback situation will be any better than it was in Denver.

Dolphins hired ex-Broncos RBs coach Eric Studesville as RBs coach and run-game coordinator.

Studesville was fired from his post as the Broncos' RBs coach and interviewed for the Giants' head-coaching gig shortly after. He was never thought to be a serious candidate. In Miami, Studesville will rejoin coach Adam Gase after the two worked together in Denver. Kenyan Drake is Studesville's next project.

The Denver Post considers the Broncos a landing spot for Tyrod Taylor.

The Broncos made a run at Taylor in 2015 free agency, but he signed with Buffalo for less money. The Bills are expected to move on from him this offseason, and the Broncos could be a strong fit given their quarterback situation and Taylor's ties to Gary Kubiak. With Paxton Lynch and a top-five pick this year, Taylor wouldn't be more than a placeholder in Denver.

Ex-Giants OC Mike Sullivan will interview for the Broncos' QBs coach vacancy.

With ex-QBs coach Bill Musgrave's promotion to offensive coordinator permanent, the Broncos are casting a surprisingly wide net to replace him. They will also reportedly talk to Ben McAdoo (Sullivan's old boss) and Ken Zampese.
Jan 4 - 2:11 PM

NBC Denver reports the Broncos are interested in ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo for their opening at QBs coach.

They are reportedly also interested in ex-Bengals OC Ken Zampese. The Broncos have an opening after QBs coach Bill Musgrave was promoted to offensive coordinator in November. They announced Tuesday that Musgrave would remain offensive coordinator for 2018. McAdoo was Aaron Rodgers' quarterbacks coach in Green Bay before arriving in New York. He did poor work with Eli Manning and the Giants' offense.
Jan 2 - 3:18 PM

The Giants will interview ex-Broncos RBs coach Eric Studesville for their head-coaching vacancy.

Studesville, 50, was fired by Denver on Monday. He spent the last eight seasons in the Broncos' organization and served as interim head coach for four games in 2010 after Josh McDaniels was fired. He went 1-3 but is viewed as one of the better RBs coaches. Studesville previously coached Giants RBs from 2001-2003. He's a long shot but does fill the Rooney Rule for the Giants.

Dolphins claimed TE AJ Derby off waivers from the Broncos.

Rashawn Scott was waived in the corresponding roster move. A shoulder injury sidelined Derby earlier this month, but he must be trending toward full health if Miami was willing to use a waiver claim on him. He gives the Fins some depth behind starter Julius Thomas.

Broncos fired OC Mike McCoy.

Denver's offense has certainly been disappointing, but this feels like a scapegoating move considering the quarterbacks McCoy has had to deal with and "talent" available on the offensive line. Until those issues are fixed, Denver is likely to struggle on offense regardless of who is calling the plays. Fired for the second time this calendar year, McCoy will once again be looking for a job this January.

Lions claimed OLB Kasim Edebali off waivers from the Broncos.

George Johnson was released in the corresponding roster move. Edebali didn't make much of a mark in Denver, logging just 55 defensive snaps over seven games before being waived earlier this week. If nothing else, he'll provide depth at outside linebacker while also getting work on special teams.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 04:56:00 PM

Broncos waived OLB Kasim Edebali.

Edebali drew summer chatter as a fill-in starter for Shane Ray, but it never happened. He was active nine games on special teams.

Saints signed RB Jonathan Williams off the Broncos' practice squad.

It's reportedly a two-year deal. New Orleans had an open roster spot after losing Daniel Lasco to a season-ending spine injury. Williams resurfaced on Denver's practice squad after he was among the Bills' final cuts at training camp this summer. He'll serve as a change-of-pace option behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Williams adds depth to a Saints' running game that is already among the league's best.

Falcons signed DT Ahtyba Rubin.

Released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Rubin did not have to wait long on the open market. Taniela Tupou was waived in a corresponding move.
Thu, Oct 19, 2017 12:20:00 PM

Broncos released DT Ahtyba Rubin.

A 16-game starter for the Seahawks last season, Rubin had been active only twice for the Broncos, playing 13 snaps. Now 31, Rubin won't be a hot commodity on the open market, though his experience should get him workouts.

Former Broncos WR Jordan Norwood announced his retirement after eight seasons in the NFL.

An undrafted free agent out of Penn State, Norwood bounced around the league before landing with the Broncos in 2015. He carved out a role as a returner in Denver and set an NFL record with a 61-yard punt return in the Broncos' Super Bowl victory. He finishes his career with 79 catches for 844 yards and two touchdowns.

Broncos signed RB Jonathan Williams to the practice squad.

Williams signed for $510,000, a princely sum for the taxi squad. It could be an indication the Broncos have designs on promoting him in short order. It's certainly not the best landing spot, as the Broncos have a crowded backfield on the 53-man roster. It is one rife with age and injury concerns, however. The fact that it's been two days and Williams couldn't land on someone's active roster is obviously a bad sign for his Dynasty league future.

Chargers claimed OG Michael Schofield, formerly of the Broncos, off waivers.

Schofield struggled as a 29-game starter for the Broncos the last two seasons, but he is a former third-round pick with theoretical talent. Like seemingly always, the Chargers could use some depth inside.
