    Broncos' Virgil Green: Catches one pass against Chicago

    Green was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception. Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

    Broncos' Virgil Green: Totals 61 yards against Packers

    Green caught three passes off of three targets for 61 yards in Sunday's win over the Packers. Long stuck in a H-back role where he has been primarily tasked with blocking, Sunday's 61 yards set a career high for Green and his three receptions tied a career mark. Green looked comfortable as a pass catcher, splitting the defense on a 32-yard crosser and running through arm tackles to pick up extra yardage. It will be interesting to see where Green lines up in the weeks ahead following Denver's trade for Vernon Davis. Though Gary Kubiak is known for using multiple-tight-end sets, it is very possible that the move will slide Green back into the backfield in more of a blocking role.

    Broncos' Peyton Manning teases Demaryius Thomas for skipping workout

    As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week. Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green. Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.

Green will get a three-year deal, worth $8.4 million with $4.2 million guaranteed. In 13 games last season, Green, 26, caught six passes for 74 yards and a touchdown.

    Virgil Green deciding between Broncos, 6-to-8 other teams

    Though the Broncos have offered tight end Virgil Green a multi-year contract, he told The Denver Post that he is not inclined to accept it just yet. Green and his agent are weighing options from six-to-eight teams that are considered contenders for his services. Up to 13 teams have reached out to his representation to inquire about him. "The Broncos have talked to me. They didn't tell me what my role would be, but they made it clear how valuable I was to them," Green told the newspaper, "I love playing in Denver, and I love the fans. But I can't make the decision just based on that. I appreciate the offer, but I don't want to react too quickly until I know how other teams see me." Green only caught six passes for 74 yards and one touchdown but is known as one of the NFL's top blocking tight ends.

    Broncos' Julius Thomas in danger of missing Chiefs game

    Broncos tight end Julius Thomas's status for Sunday night against the Chiefs "doesn't sound too promising," according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Thomas sat out Week 12 against Miami because of an ankle injury. Thomas was a limited participant Thursday and Friday with the injury and is expected to be a game-time decision. If he can't go, the team will likely turn to Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green for all the snaps at tight end.
