Cardinals haven't discussed extension for Chandler Jones?

  Cardinals haven't discussed extension for Chandler Jones? The Cardinals have made no effort to rework Chandler Jones‘ deal, despite Jones’ continued excellence both on and off the field. Jones is under contract through the 2021 season, but rival execs still believe it’s unusual that the Cardinals have not at least explored an extension. After all, Jones has been arguably the league’s best pass-rusher since Arizona acquired him from the Patriots in March 2016, and the 60 sacks that he posted from 2016 to '19 are eight more than anyone else in the league during that span. The extension he signed in March 2017 will pay him a $16M salary this year and a $15.

Sylvester Williams . Williams , 31, was taken with the No. 28 overall pick back in the 2013 NFL Draft out of North Carolina. He played out the final year of his rookie contract after the Broncos declined to pick up his fifth-year option in 2017.

Through his first two seasons, the Broncos ’ 2013 first - round draft pick has demonstrated only He is committed to developing young players. Kubiak mentioned Williams specifically when saying, “in Broncos rookie inside linebacker Justin Strnad underwent wrist surgery Sunday night and is out for

Timmy Jernigan wasn’t the only defensive tackle to meet with the Broncos this week. The club also auditioned five other interior linemen, including former first-round pick Sylvester Williams, per the league’s official record. Darius Kilgo, David Moa, Brian Price, and Niles Scott also took part in the audition.

Williams, 31, has not lived up to his billing as the Broncos' No. 28 overall pick in the 2013 draft. Still, he’s been mostly employed for the last seven seasons. Williams has played for the Titans, Lions, and Dolphins, and Chargers since leaving the Broncos. The Saints rostered him briefly last summer.

When the Denver Broncos drafted Dalton Risner in the second round back in 2019, the team made it clear right away he was going to move inside to With one year under his belt on the left side at guard, is there any chance the Broncos could view Risner's long-term future as the left tackle starting in 2021?

Hordes of teammates praised the former , and his work during OTAs and minicamp displayed the latter. Fort, Bug Howard and first - round pick Noah Fant made catches all over the field during their first Broncos offseason. While Fant looks primed to have a significant role, particularly as a red-zone

The 330-pound veteran appeared in five games for the Bolts last year, but wasn’t first-string for any of those appearances. The bulk of his 63 career starts came with the Broncos, followed by 11 starts with the Titans in 2017. He might not be a world-beater, but he does come with ample experience, including two Super Bowl starts.

It’s not immediately clear whether the Broncos are still in the market for a defensive tackle or nose tackle after signing Jernigan. But, at minimum, they should have a couple of candidates on their emergency list, which is pretty key given their rash of injuries this year.
