- The Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala doesn’t expect Denver to bring back LB Brandon Marshall in 2019. The team drafted LB Josey Jewell in the fourth round out of Iowa last season and promoted him to starter in the team’s nickel and base packages early in the season. Jhabvala notes that the Broncos could save $5 million by cutting Marshall.
- The Broncos could also move on from S Su’a Cravens, who has no guaranteed money left on his deal, according to Jhabvala.
- Jhabvala considers Denver S Darian Stewart to be a candidate for either a restructured contract or a release. Stewart signed a four-year, $28 million extension in 2016, but the Broncos could save $3.6 million by cutting him.
- Jhabvala adds that re-signing CB Chris Harris and C Matt Paradis will be a priority for Denver this offseason.
“They had that young group of guys,” Garrett said. “You could tell they could play at that young age. You just had to mold them. I think Freddie [Kitchens] is gonna do that for us.”
New Raiders GM Mike Mayock inherited a plethora of needs. But defensive end might be at the top.
“Are we focused in on defensive ends at [the Senior Bowl]? Of course,” Mayock said via Scott Bair of NBC Sports. “We’d be dumb if we weren’t. But we need pretty much everything on defense. We’re looking at every position.”
