The Denver Broncos announced they re-signed exclusive rights free agent center Sam Brenner, who was a midseason pickup in 2015…
The Denver Broncos are making a flurry of roster moves on Friday, and the moves should continue to trickle in over the weekend as Sam Brenner has signed his exclusive rights free agent contract.
Brenner was picked up off of waivers from the Miami Dolphins in November of last season, and he was on the Broncos’ active roster through the end of the regular season and the postseason.
Listed as a center, Brenner gives the Broncos four players at that position who are specifically listed there on the roster, though generally, centers can play the other two interior positions as well. Brenner is a guy that the Dolphins obviously liked, but not enough to the point that they felt like he was untouchable.

The Broncos were seeking offensive line depth all of last season, and they put together a pretty impressive collection of young players. Fellow ERFA Matt Paradis started every game for the Broncos at center last year, and was re-signed on Friday as well. The Broncos also have James Ferentz, who was picked up off of waivers last year and saw some regular season snaps in big packages.
They are also high on Dillon Day, an undrafted free agent who spent all of last season on the team’s practice squad.
2015 fourth round pick Max Garcia also can play center, but he’ll open camp this year likely as one of the two starting offensive guards.
Robert Myers Jr. is another player the Broncos picked up last year who has some intrigue as a prospect, and he’s the only player currently listed at guard on the roster. Ty Sambrailo, the team’s second round pick in 2015 who was placed on IR early last season, will figure to hold down the starting guard position opposite Max Garcia.
The Broncos have certainly given themselves a nice, young crop of players to look at this offseason on the interior offensive line.
