Denver Broncos G Chris Kuper announced that he has decided to retire after eight seasons in the NFL.
“The season kind of furthered my idea that this would probably be the end for me,” Kuper said on Monday, via the Denver Post. “I didn’t feel good all season. I did my best when I was out there. I just wasn’t the same player. And I think that’s a big part of my decision...

Kuper is 31, and retires after 8 seasons. He suffered a gruesome ankle injury in late 2011 and was never the same.

As the NFL enters the off-season, each team will be forced to take a hard look at its roster and determine who stays, who goes, who gets extended, and who stays status quo. Some of these decisions are easily made; others come down to balancing team needs against cap space and who is available in free agency and in the draft. Taking a look at each divisions cap situations heading...
Broncos guard Chris Kuper remembers sitting in his living room five years ago and texting Jay Cutler, wondering if the rumors were true: that the quarterback wanted to be traded from Denver.
“I think he ultimately wanted to stay here,” Kuper said Wednesday. “But he said there were so many he said/she saids that it’s hard to decipher what was real and what wasn’t.”
Right guard Louis Vasquez will move to right tackles and Denver will start backup left guard Chris Kuper in Vasquez's normal spot Sunday night at Indianapolis.
The Broncos made the changes because starting right tackle Orlando Franklin is inactive with a sprained left knee.
Middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard also is inactive with a shoulder stinger and will be replaced in the...

Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper made a surprise appearance in pads at practice Tuesday shortly after agreeing to a restructured contract.
He had been on the physically unable to perform list following a second operation on his left ankle, which was dislocated in the 2011 regular-season finale. He played in just seven games last year.
During warmups, Kuper snapped the...

I didn’t like a lot of moves today. That’s normally how the first day goes. The desperate teams make the big splash moves and don’t get any better as a result and end up cutting him 2 or 3 years into the deal, while the smart teams let things come to them once the buyers dry up on the later days of free agency and also build through the draft. However, this is one move I really...

The first free agent signing for the Denver Broncos of the 2013 Free Agency period stays true to the trend that the Broncos have followed thus far in the last three years under John Elway. That being low key moves that make sense and moves that hardly anyone had thought of.

Quick hits from around the NFL…
The Broncos first signing was locking up offensive guard Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million deal. This is a curious signing because the team’s Week 1 starting guards in 2013—Chris Kuper and Zane Beadles—both received Pro Bowl recognition last season (as an alternate and reserve, respectively).

Denver Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper will require
another surgery in the same area as the severe left ankle dislocation he
sustained during the final game of the 2011 season, according to Mike Klis of

"This one is less traumatic," Kuper said. "It
doesn't have all the other things wrong in there, so I'm optimistic it will be

Divisional round matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, as cornerback Tracy

Porter has still not been cleared to return to practice
since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 23 contest against the Cleveland...
Nobody knows the value of right guard Chris Kuper's presence like Peyton Manning.
Coming off a series of neck surgeries, Denver's quarterback was sacked 21 times this season, but only twice with Kuper in the Broncos' lineup.
Although Manny Ramirez admirably filled in for him, the pocket of protection wasn't the same with Kuper out.

When the Broncos (12-3) take on the Chiefs (2-13) this weekend, offensive guard Chris Kuper could be on the field. Kuper is listed as “questionable” after being limited in practice this week.
The most likely scenario seems to be Denver resting Kuper this week, giving him two weeks to rest in preparation for the divisional round of the playoffs (assuming Denver secures a first...
Kick returner Trindon Holliday is doubtful for the Denver Broncos' season finale against Kansas City because of a sprained ankle that has sidelined him all week.

On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos returned to the practice field in preparation for this week’s game against Kansas City—in 30° weather.
The Broncos were toughing it out in the cold today, with many players wearing sweatpants. Last week, quarterback Peyton Manning wore a glove on his right throwing hand, but not necessarily because...

Both players fully participated in practice throughout week and Porter was cleared to play on...
Sounds like Broncos‘ defensive end Elvis Dumervil will be a game-time decision this weekend.
“He was limited,” Coach John Fox told the team’s official website. “I think we’ll play it day to day and I’m sure we probably won’t have a final decision until about an hour and a half before kickoff.”
Meanwhile, cornerback Tracy Porter (illness) has been ruled out and...

If you strictly look at records going into the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers in Week 10 of the NFL season, this looks like an incredible mismatch between a 5–3 record versus 2–6.
