  • Broncos' Jonas Griffith: Recovered from injury

    Griffith has returned to the field after recovering from an ankle injury, Cody Roark of Mile High Sports reports. Griffith landed on injured reserve in November but is now back on the field for OTAs. The 26-year-old recorded 46 tackles (26 solo) and a sack in nine games last season and should serve as a solid depth option during the 2023 campaign.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Back at practice

    Jones (knee) was able to participate at the Broncos' practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Jones has been dealing with a knee injury as the Broncos have been ramping up their offseason program in recent weeks, but it appears the nose tackle is good to go moving forward. Jones is expected to be a staple on Denver's interior defensive line in his second year with the franchise. He recorded 34 tackles, including two sacks, while deflecting a career-high six passes over 15 games last season.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Sitting out OTAs

    Purcell is being held out of OTAs as he recovers from minor offseason knee surgery, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Purcell appeared in all 17 games for the Broncos last season, so it's unlikely his offseason procedure will cause him to miss much time, although it's not yet clear if he'll be available at the start of training camp. When healthy, Purcell should play a significant role in the team's defensive line rotation.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Still recovering

    Jones (knee) will not be participating in OTAs, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Jones missed the last two weeks of the 2022 campaign due to a possibly related knee injury. How much more time he'll need to recover is unknown, but when healthy, Jones should be a significant piece of the Broncos' defensive line rotation.

  • Broncos' Randy Gregory: Participating at OTAs

    Gregory was practicing with the team Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Gregory finished the 2022 campaign on injured reserve due to a knee injury. However, it appears the 30-year-old is now fully healed and ready to compete. A healthy Gregory, who missed a total of 11 games last season, would be a major boon for the Broncos' defense moving forward.

An undrafted lineman out of Northwestern, Lancaster appeared in 59 games for the Packers from 2018-2021, starting 21 contests as a rotational player up front. Lancaster signed with the Raiders last offseason but was placed on IR and subsequently released before Week 1 with an undisclosed issue. Now healthy, the 28-year-old will compete for a spot on the Broncos' defensive line this summer.

Martin played in 13 games with the Broncos and Jets last season, recording 14 tackles, including 2.5 sacks, while forcing a fumble in those contests. He's likely slated to serve as a depth option behind the likes of Christian Harris and Denzel Perryman at outside linebacker with the Texans.

  • Broncos' Kareem Jackson: Returning to Denver

    Jackson re-signed with the Broncos on a one-year deal Monday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Jackson will return to Denver, where he's spent the past four seasons.

  • Texans' Darius Phillips: Headed to Houston

    The Texans signed Phillips on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Phillips played in nine games for the Broncos during the 2022 campaign before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury in December. The 27-year-old recorded just two tackles while playing almost exclusively on special teams, and assuming no injury setbacks, he should be expected to have a similar depth role this season, provided he makes the team.

  • Broncos' JL Skinner: Taken by Denver in sixth round

    The Broncos selected Skinner (pectoral) in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 183rd overall. Skinner is very tall for a safety at 6-foot-4 and could probably stand to add some weight even at 209 pounds, but if his frame doesn't hold him back, Skinner could emerge as an interesting strong-safety/rover type. Skinner was a playmaker at Boise State, showing the ability to make plays both against the pass and the run with six interceptions and 8.5 tackles for loss over the last two years. The most immediate challenge facing Skinner is probably the pectoral muscle tear he suffered while training in late February.

  • Broncos' Drew Sanders: Lands in Denver

    The Broncos selected Sanders in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 67th overall. This class didn't boast much top-end talent at off-ball linebacker, but Sanders was easily one of the best of this bunch. A former five-star recruit at Alabama, Sanders transferred to Arkansas in 2022 and flourished. He racked up 103 tackles and 9.5 sacks to earn All-American honors. Sanders' exact role is uncertain in Denver, but Sanders has the tools to either flow and stop the run or pin his ears back and get after the passer. He ran a 4.64 40-yard dash at 236 pounds at the Arkansas Pro Day.

  • Wyatt Ray: Released Monday

    The Broncos released Ray on Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports. Ray will now head to free agency, where he will look for a shot with a new team to add value both on defense and special teams. The 2019 undrafted free agent signed with the Broncos' practice squad back in November and registered two tackles (both solo) while appearing in three games for the team.

  • Broncos' Essang Bassey: Returns to Broncos

    Bassey signed a one-year deal to return to the Broncos on Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Bassey was a depth piece in the secondary for the Broncos in 2022, but he saw the majority of his action on special teams. While he was non-tendered as a free agent by the team, he should be in line to return to a similar role in 2023.

  • Broncos' P.J. Locke: Stays in Denver

    Locke re-signed with the Broncos on Thursday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Locke was non-tendered by the Broncos in restricted free agency, but he still returned to the team on a new deal. Entering his fourth season in the NFL, Locke has served primarily on special teams and as depth in the secondary. He had his best statistical season in 2022, posting 22 total tackles, one pass defended and two forced fumbles.

  • Jonathan Kongbo: Allowed to enter market

    Kongbo was not tendered a contract Wednesday and is an unrestricted free agent, per the NFL's communications site. Kongbo appeared in three games for the Broncos in 2022 after overcoming a groin injury, and he earned 54 defensive snaps and 32 snaps on special teams. He tallied one total tackle and should find a depth role around the league in 2023.

  • Essang Bassey: Goes untendered by Denver

    The Broncos did not extend Bassey (hamstring) a tender or qualifying offer Wednesday, per the NFL's communications site. Bassey is coming off the second-most productive season of his four-year career, logging 15 tackles and two passes defended over 14 regular-season games in 2022. The 5-foot-10 cornerback missed back-to-back games with a hamstring injury midway through the season, and he saw his playing time on defense dwindle down the stretch of the season. As a result, Bassey wound up playing the majority of his 460 total snaps on special teams (250). The 24-year-old will now be free to negotiate and sign elsewhere this offseason.

  • Panthers' DeShawn Williams: Following Evero to Carolina

    Williams (knee) agreed to a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports. Williams is set to rejoin new Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, who held the same role with the Broncos last season. Over 17 regular-season games with Denver in 2022, the 30-year-old defensive tackle logged career highs in sacks (4.5) and defensive snaps (565) to go along with 37 tackles. Williams is expected to provide valuable depth alongside younger defensive tackles Derrick Brown and Shy Tuttle in Carolina.

  • Seahawks' Dre'Mont Jones: Has three-year deal with Seattle

    Jones (hip) agreed to a three-year, $51.5 million contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jones was sidelined by a hip injury to close out his Broncos tenure, but assuming the defensive lineman passes a physical, his deal with Seattle should become official when the NFL league year begins Wednesday. He had between 5.5 and 6.5 sacks in each of the past three seasons with the Broncos.
