The interest on behalf of the Broncos makes sense, not only for need at the position but because of Mitchell's experience with Denver's coaching staff. Mitchell was with Vance Joseph and defensive line coach Bill Kollar in Houston and was reunited with Joseph again in Miami last season, when Joseph was the Dolphins' defensive coordinator.

"Mike's built an offense from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning. He has the ability to adapt his skillset to our players," coach Vance Joseph said. "We want to be aggressive. We want to score points. That's not going to stop. How he does that, that's going to be his expertise. But we want to be aggressive."
