    Report: Broncos to exercise 2018 option on Bradley Roby

    Don't believe this has been posted yet, seems like a no brainer to me.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-bradley-roby/

    The deadline for teams to exercise their 2018 contract options on their 2014 first-round picks is on May 3 and we’ve seen some teams already make their moves.

    The choices were easy in those cases as players like Cowboys guard Zack Martin, Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald have established themselves among the top players at their positions. Broncos cornerback Bradley Roby hasn’t had that kind of impact, but the team appears to be in no hurry to see him move on.

    James Palmer of NFL Media reports that the Broncos will exercise their option on Roby’s contract. The option, which is guaranteed against injury only, sets Roby up to make around $8.5 million during the 2017 season.

    With Aqib Talib and Chris Harris on hand, the Broncos haven’t had cause to put Roby into a starting role too often over his first three years in Denver but he played 60 percent of the snaps last season as a major contributor on defense. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns and added a sack and forced fumble in 2016.

    Roby turns 25 on May 1, so continued success should leave him in position to take on an even bigger role as the older Talib and Harris move out of their spots in Denver’s starting lineup.

    They better keep him. I think Roby and Doss are the Harris and Talib of the future. Would be surprised if we didn't draft a cb in the top 4 rounds this year, too.

    No real surprise here. I believe this was expected.

    Good call, Mr. E.

    I had actually read a report two days ago that the front office was contemplating not picking up the fifth year option because $8.5 millions was too steep for a nickel corner.

    It's not guaranteed until the beginning of the 2018 league year, up until then teams can rescind the option. If Roby doesn't improve, or they feel he'll be nothing more than a nickel back they can do this. Or if they decide he's an important part and he's the guy they get him for $8.5 million. It really a no lose at this point.

    1. I think Harris plays more nicke/slotl than Roby. I understand the depth chart but I am talking about where they actually line up.
    2. Be careful what you read and where you read it from. Lot of garbage news goes on the internet.

    Pretty sure we lock Roby to long term deal assuming he does not try to break the record for CB contracts. If he has same attitude as Wolfe and Harris I bet he does not even become a free agent.

    Glad they did. Although inconsistent at times roby is still a good corner. Talib isn't getting any younger and has injuries.

    Can the Broncos put the exercise option on Anderson?

    This is for the fifth year option and it can be only applied to first round picks. Anderson was undrafted, and he was resigned last off season to an 8 mil deal.
