ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —** Running back Kapri Bibbs and wide receiver Bennie Fowler III signed their exclusive-rights tenders Thursday, leaving just three Broncos exclusive-rights free agents who have yet to sign their tenders.

Center Matt Paradis, long snapper Casey Kreiter and wide receiver Jordan Taylor signed their tenders on Monday.

Bibbs, a three-year veteran, saw the first regular-season carries of his career in 2016, and he gained an increased role in the wake of C.J. Anderson's season-ending injury in October. As a reserve running back, Bibbs recorded 129 rushing yards on 29 carries and two receptions for 75 yards, including a dazzling 69-yard catch-and-run touchdown on a screen pass against Oakland. His season ended four weeks later when he suffered a season-ending high-ankle sprain against the Jaguars.

Fowler missed the first two games of the season with an elbow injury suffered in training camp, but he played in 13 of the remaining 14 games. He totaled 11 receptions, 145 receiving yards and two touchdowns in 2016.

The three Broncos yet yet to sign their tenders are inside linebacker Zaire Anderson, outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett and center James Ferentz.
