Pat Bowlen, the Broncos' owner stated that the plan is for Kyle Orton to remain the Broncos' quarterback, but the team hopes to select another quarterback in the upcoming draft, according to the Denver Post.
Bowlen also said he would like star receiver Brandon Marshall to remain with the Broncos, but wouldn't block a trade if rookie coach Josh McDaniels feels it would benefit the team.

The Denver Post reports that Broncos coach Josh McDaniels has formally asked permission from the Buffalo Bills to interview their running game coordinator/running backs coach Eric Studesville.
Even though the Bills recently released their entire coaching staff, many assistants like Studesville are still under contract with the Bills and permission is still needed to interview.
Bobby Turner, the Broncos' running backs coach for the previous 15 seasons, left to become associate head coach for the Washington Redskins.

When the Dolphins fired defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni, the team had interest in at least two candidates, but nobody was signed.
The Broncos and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan decided to part ways.
There is considerable optimism that Nolan will become Pasqualoni's replacement in Miami before the end of the week, according to the Miami Herald.
The Broncos are expected to hire former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees, who resigned in New England at the end of last week.

The Denver Post reports that the ankle sprain Correll Buckhalter suffered in the Broncos' 17-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys may keep him on the sidelines when Denver hosts the New England Patriots on Sunday.
In his place, Broncos rookie Knowshon Moreno may get his first NFL start.
"We have a system in place here regardless of who's playing," Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said. "We're going to go out there and run our system, and we've got a number of talented guys in our backfield and we'll be just fine."

According to the Denver Post, Brandon Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire, sought out Broncos management to get a feel for the team's position on giving Marshall a contract extension.
This came on the first business day after Marshall was exonerated of battery charges following a trial Friday in Atlanta.
The Broncos told McGuire that at this time they were not willing to rework the wide receiver's deal, which has one year and $2.2 million remaining. Marshall then reiterated his trade demand that he first issued in June.

According to the s/playerpage/409102">Jay Cutler">Detroit News, the Denver Broncos don't want the first overall pick in the draft, so if the Lions are hoping to land Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler, now officially available, they may have to do it with the help of another team.
The Washington Redskins and Daniel Snyder are emerging as a front-runner to land the 25-year-old Cutler, one of the NFL's top young quarterbacks. The Redskins, who own the 13th overall pick in this month's NFL draft, are actively pursuing a trade, the Washington Post reported, with Tampa Bay and the New York Jets also in the mix.
Denver's initial asking price is believed to be a first-round pick in this month's draft and possibly another first-round pick in 2010, with the Broncos also seeking a starting-caliber quarterback in any deal.

The Jets have the need, the cap room and the draft-pick ammunition to make a serious offer for Cutler, but they are lacking a quarterback the Broncos would take in return.
The former Jets coach has two viable quarterbacks, Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson, but according to the New York Daily News, neither of whom has received an endorsement from Mangini. Quinn might be appealing to Broncos coach Josh McDaniels because he played at Notre Dame under Charlie Weis, who used to work with McDaniels in New England.
The Browns could emerge as the third team in a potential three-way trade. The main components of a three-way deal would be the Jets getting Cutler, the Broncos getting Quinn and the Browns getting a premium draft pick (or picks) to help their rebuilding process.

John Lynch, the nine-time Pro Bowl safety and member of the Bucs' 2002 Super Bowl championship squad will make an announcement on Monday at One Buc Place, according to the Tampa Tribune. The Bucs are planning a sendoff similar to the one they gave fullback Mike Alstott this spring.
Lynch played his final four seasons with the Broncos, who signed him after his controversial release from the Bucs in March 2004. The Bucs said then that Lynch could not pass their physical because of problems related to a neck injury, but Lynch vowed to play on and started 59 of the 60 games he played for Denver, earning four more Pro Bowl trips.
As a result of his success in Denver, the Broncos are also expected to be a part of Monday's ceremony.
