ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —** Center Matt Paradis, wide receiver Jordan Taylor and long snapper Casey Kreiter — three of the eight players who received exclusive-rights tenders from the Broncos in March — signed their tenders on Monday, the team announced.
As players with fewer than three accrued seasons, exclusive-rights free agents may only re-sign with their prior team once their team issues tenders to them.
Paradis is the most experienced of the three, as he started every game in the past two seasons. Taylor, a 2015 college free agent signing, appeared in 16 games in 2016 after spending the previous year on the practice squad. Kreiter, signed in 2016, won his position battle and played 10 games for the Broncos before suffering a calf injury that ultimately sent him to injured reserve with three games left in the season.
The five players yet to sign their exclusive-rights tenders are inside linebacker Zaire Anderson, outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett, center James Ferentz, running back Kapri Bibbs and wide receiver Bennie Fowler III.
