Broncos QB Trevor Siemian said he is recovering well from shoulder surgery and that he “should” be ready to go for OTAs.
“I am out of the sling and everything is going really well so far,” Siemian said, via Troy E. Renck. “I should be good for OTAs but we’ll see. I’ll touch base with the Doc at the end of March and see how I am doing.”

- Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star writes that fourth-year QB Tyler Bray could become the Chiefs’ primary backup now that they’re expected to decline Nick Foles‘ contract option.

- Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News names seven prospects that are worth keeping an eye on for the Jets, including LSU RB Leonard Fournette, FSU RB Dalvin Cook, Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore, Alabama LB Reuben Foster, and each of the top three quarterbacks in North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, and Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer.
- Larry Holder of the Times-Picayune writes that the Saints have an “imperative” need for an edge rusher, which could lead to them diverting from their normal approach to free agency and spending on a high-end free agent.
- As for possible free agent targets, Holder mentions Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram, Cardinals OLB Chandler Jones, and Packers OLB Nick Perry as potential options.
- Although, Holder did say he would be “stunned” if the Cardinals did not place the franchise tag on him this offseason.
