Quick hits from around the NFL…

The Broncos first signing was locking up offensive guard Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million deal.  This is a curious signing because the team’s Week 1 starting guards in 2013—Chris Kuper and Zane Beadles—both received Pro Bowl recognition last season (as an alternate and reserve, respectively).

Denver’s second order of business was scheduling visits with free agent running back Rashard Mendenhall and cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.  The Broncos are also reportedly interested in Dwight Freeney, Osi Umenyiora, and Reggie Bush.

Meanwhile, quarterback Peyton Manning has passed his physical, making his 2013 and 2014 salaries ($20 million apiece) guaranteed.

The Eagles have released Nnamdi Asomugha and the Bills have released quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Dolphins have already made two huge splashes — signing receiver Mike Wallace and bringing in linebacker Dannelle Ellerbe.

The Browns have signed Paul Kruger to a huge deal… the Broncos were reportedly interested in the star defensive end.

Miami tight end Anthony Fasano has landed in Kansas City.

The Buccaneers have made an offer to the New York Jets for cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Check back for more updates throughout the evening…

    Not happy with this move. 6 mil a year is just too much. Unless Kuper is more injured then we all think. No chance we sign we sign a top safety now…

    Good signing in my book. 26 year old stud. #2 rated FA guard. I am sure the Broncos didn’t do this for grins. Either Kup’s injury is more serious that we know or this is a significant upgrade over Zane… you have to believe the Bronx know the answer to both questions. I just don’t think you can go wrong bringing in qualtiy offensive and defensive lineman… ever.

  • Mark Kuhns

    I want to believe we now have a safety that will never ever ever under play a deep duck.

  • Carlo Scuri

    i’m not happy about this. We need players in many positions, Vasquez is a good player but guards were not a priority, 23 millions in 4 years are too much.

  • Dom

    Solid move. The Dolts best offensive lineman. Protect Peyton at all cost. With him and Orlando on the right side it’s gonna be smash mouth football. Love it!

  • BroncoMan24

    Trust me you will by the end of the season. He is definitely worth that money. Actually think we got a good deal on him.

  • Sean Brady

    Good singning. Kuper is always injured and we need someone to step up. Definitley should look at ethier Rodgers-Cromartie Talib or cary williams or sign Deangelo hall/asomaugh for 1 year. Mendenhall is iffy in my mind but hopefully he turns out well. id rather go with a chris ivory route but they know what there doing in the front office. As for DT/DE situation i say why not and get both freeney and umenyorah or maybe even richard seymour. Im too excited to see who we get though. Too excited for next year. i think this is our year for the taking ! GO broncos!

  • Cheyenne Kid

    They have contacted Richard Seymour and Rodgers-Cromartie is visiting. They also contacted Greg Jennings (Packers WR) and Reggie Bush. Chris Ivory is another good prospect. Shoud be a.very interesting next few days for us Bronco diehards!

  • Cheyenne Kid

    Kuper is making around 6M/ year so he may be history. I really like him but can he really come back from those severe injuries at a high level again? I am sure the Broncos are comtemplating that!
