Broncos, Brock Osweiler expected to open talks this week

Brock Osweiler AP

Earlier this month, the word out of Denver was that the Broncos were holding off on contract talks with quarterback Brock Osweilerout of respect” to Peyton Manning while Manning waited to make his intentions for the 2016 season known.

Manning hasn’t made his plans about returning for another season public at this point, but it appears the wait for talks with Osweiler is coming to an end. Teams often meet with representatives for their impending free agents during the Scouting Combine and Mike Klis of KUSA in Denver reports that is just what the Broncos will do with Osweiler.

The Broncos need to know what Manning is doing before March 9 so that they can decide if they want him back at any price, but they can’t wait that long to make inroads with Osweiler on a new deal if, as expected, they want him to remain with the team. The “legal tampering” window that opens ahead of the start of the new league year would give other teams a chance to talk openly with Osweiler and the Broncos can’t let their exclusive opportunity to negotiate with Osweiler lapse without at least a clear idea of the quarterback’s plans.

Klis adds that talks continue with defensive end Malik Jackson and that there’s little discussion with linebacker Von Miller, who is expected to receive the franchise tag.

    They better be signing their defense. With that D, they could put Cassel or Weeden under center for a lot less money.

    In all respect to Manning, please retire on a high note. You’ve done so much for the Broncos, Colts and NFL. Go out on top #18

    The Broncos will sign Osweiler and the numbers won’t be that crazy. It will be two years of reasonable cap numbers then a third year of Monopoly money.

  4. BroncosCheatedTheSalaryCap says: Feb 23, 2016 9:11 AM

    2 quick questions. Will they be paying him under the table to circumvent the cap like they did with Elway (and two other players) when they won their first two Super Bowls? And will he be on HGH like Peyton when Denver won its other Super Bowl? Sorry, those are facts you can’t run from Broncos. *** Sad stuff.

    Terrific negotiating position for Osweiler’s agent. Blind Freddie’s dog can see that Peyton Manning is done, even if he can’t see it himself.
    Osweiler is the Bronco’s future and he can command big $ if they really like him.

    It’s really a shame that Peyton Manning is leaving it out there hanging.

    He’s really exposing the lack of depth Denver has at QB.

    John Elway’s really going to take it in the face if he lets both Osweiler and Manning go.

    It’s going to take balls to cut DeMarcus Ware and not bring him back too.

  7. jmc8888 says: Feb 23, 2016 9:51 AM

    Peyton Manning may not be done. He may want to go elsewhere, or he may want Osweiler to go elsewhere. Perhaps he’s being coy because he hopes the Broncos screw it up by waiting for him. We’re only what… about 11 days until the tampering window is open?

    If Osweiler isn’t signed by the Broncos by then, there will probably be teams making offers and he might be gone. Or maybe he wants to stay, but his agent is happy to let Manning waffle or whatever, because it helps his client Osweiler get the most money. Either from the Broncos, or from another team.

    The Broncos better put the exclusive tag on Miller, because otherwise someone is going to try to snatch him. He simply is too good.

    Meanwhile there’s also Jackson to deal with, and Ware might get cut.

    It’s going to be real interesting to see how they get these guys back in the fold. But If Manning leaves/retires and they cut Ware it could be possible.

    A) Nope.
    B) I thought all the Broncos haters were saying Mannings drop off wasn’t due to injury but to HGH Testing being implemented. You’ve got to decide one way or the other…..

  9. denverdave3 says: Feb 23, 2016 10:03 AM

    Brock is barely average. I say let him go and pick up some other average guy who doesn’t cost as much or trade for RG III. He fits Kubiak’s system better, anyway.

  10. charliecharger says: Feb 23, 2016 10:10 AM

    While Peyton hasn’t made any public announcements about his future, I’m he’s privately let Elway know what his plans are. Elway is just respecting Peyton’s wishes to make his announcement on his own time table. Elway knows that Osweiler and Trevor Siemian are two very good young QBs, and those guys are going to compete for the job. Osweiler has the upper hand, but I expect Siemian to have a great pre-season and open up a lot of eyes. He was awesome at Northwestern. They were just outmanned every week by better Big Ten teams. If Siemian would have played at Alabama he would have been a first round pick.

    I suggest you go to the archives and research what really happened in that case, and compare with the Redskins/Haynesworth fiasco. The NFL approved the contracts, then, after the contracts were implemented, the NFL changed their collective minds and punished both teams with salary cap reductions or draft picks. Why? Because the teams rivals pissed and moaned about it. The Denver case was basically a loan “deferred compensation” to aid in cash flow while the new stadium was being built.
    No one made any more money, nor exceeded the salary cap as established at the time.

    There’s no way the Bronco’s want the serial rapist back now.
    I wonder if he will be invited to opening night at this point.

    “If Siemian would have played at Alabama he would have been a first round pick.”
    ——————————————————

    Everybody loves the third string QB in Denver. Last year it was Zac Dysert, before him it was Tom Brandstater, Bradlee Van Pelt, Jarious Jackson… The list goes on. Siemian is fun to cheer for, but there’s a reason he was a 7th round pick.

  15. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Feb 23, 2016 11:08 AM

    They need Manning back or sign another veteran. Osweiller holds the ball too long and with that offensive line he will be running for his life or get injured often. He also needs to work on his deep throws accuracy. He has the arm strength. Defenses will have the tape on him now.

  16. broncoscheatedthesalarycapisadouche says: Feb 23, 2016 11:09 AM

    Circumvention of the salary cap was to defer money. Willycents hit the nail on the head. Is it so difficult to difficult to go to the archives to know what really happened?

    To ask if they’ll pay under the table is like asking if the Patriots will again video opponents or the if the Falcons will continue to pipe in sound…..

  17. nflgtcfl says: Feb 23, 2016 11:26 AM

    Brock has potential and had a nice W/L record.

    Keep in mind this is the same Defense that saved Peyton. If you look at the stats of each of Brock’s halves you can draw the conclusion the defense won most his games for him as well. Brock had some downright awful halves of football.

  18. granadafan says: Feb 23, 2016 11:38 AM

    Broncs should sign Brock to a contract similar to what the Packers gave Rodgers during Lord Burt Farve’s last year. They gave him a medium contract but then tore it up when he started tearing up the league. If the Packers had let Favre come back, Rodgers would have demanded a trade. The Broncos are in a similar situation. If Manning comes back, then their future QB is gone.

    So the answer is yes.

    Hey BroncosCheatedTheSalaryCap, get over it already! Different regime, and the Broncos are not the only team to make that mistake – far from it, but because they won the Super Bowl it was more public hence the severity of the punishment. You dislike the Broncos, we get it…guarantee your team is not squeaky clean, because there is no such thing, period.

    “Everybody loves the third string QB in Denver.”

    You are forgetting Adam Weber, formally the third best QB on the team per the team cook.

    *****************************
    Siemian was a 7th round pick because he tore his ACL at the senior bowl a few months before last years draft. He was projected to be a late 1st, second round pick

    My guess is he Broncos will sign Brock, they will lose Jackson, Hillman, and Trevathan. They will sign Brandon Marshall and Ware will stay at a reduced salary for one more year.

    Pedton if he plays will only be playing half a season. 4 games high and 4 games sex assault.

    We all know that Manning is not coming back. The Broncos haven’t started the negotitations with Brock yet because they want to hold some leverage and not throw the house thru the window in a QB that although showed some flashes of good football still unproven. The Broncos are just using the “out of respect” for Manning as an excuse to see if this can help them work with Brock.

  26. cinzano08 says: Feb 23, 2016 12:42 PM

    Brock will not be low balled. There are too many teams without a qb.

  27. wallabear says: Feb 23, 2016 1:14 PM

    The starting job in Cleveland gladly awaits you, Brock.

  28. cantfakethefunk says: Feb 23, 2016 1:16 PM

    Why would he re-sign with that organization? Cheated the salary cap to win super bowls and then signed PED/alleged sexual assaultist manning to win another. What a disgusting organization.

  29. broncfanor says: Feb 23, 2016 1:54 PM

    It’s hilarious reading the tired lies still being spewed by the haters.

    Sorry your team sucks, move on.

    Bring TEBOW back!

    You know you miss him.:) You know you miss the magic!

    I’ll always have a soft spot for the Broncos for the way Tebow and Demaryius Thomas sent the loathsome Steelers packing in that playoff game with their tails between their legs.

    Well I guess they must have learned that from the NFL. The NFL was just caught doing the same thing in their own way.

    Denver would have won the championship with Brock at the helm. Let’s all be honest, Manning was literally just along for the ride. Denver tried to do it his way for 3 years, making it to the big game in ’13. The ending to that story was a 43-8 drumming by the Seahawks. The fact he is taking so long to retire is a bit disconcerting, especially given the latest story regarding his earlier years. This is how it will play out, Manning (and i like the guy) will sign a one day contract to retire a Colt. This will take some of the focus off his butt cheeks and incite an amorous rejoicing between he and the Indie fans. He just needs to retire already. The guy looks like he is 80 years old and he’s only a couple years older than Brady. So, in closing I would like to say thank you to Peyton. The Broncos would like to say you’re welcome for allowing him to tag along for this championship ride. Close the curtain, Peyton. The show is over. Cheers!

    Pat Bowlen could have QB’d Denver to victory in SB 50. Elway is not breaking the bank for Brock. The Dude is mediocre at best!

  34. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Feb 23, 2016 3:33 PM

    No way Osweiller survives Panthers pass rush. They would have made a minced meat out of him just like they did previous QB. I went back and rewatched that game and it was clear that Manning had figured them out especially their blitzes. Osweiller would have done worse than Carson Palmer against Carolina.

  35. BroncosCheatedTheSalaryCap says: Feb 23, 2016 5:35 PM

    Sorry kids, my comment is spot on. The Broncos received the LARGEST fine in NFL history and lost TWO draft picks after it came out they made side deals with Elway, Davis and a third players. Look it up….truth hurts.
