Rookies’ Deals Just About Done

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Broncos practiced without rookies Quinton Carter, Rahim Moore, Nate Irving and Von Miller on Thursday morning.

But they won’t have to do without them for long.

Carter, Moore and Miller agreed to terms or signed their contacts in the hours afterthe Broncos first took the field Thursday, and assuming all of their deals are signed before 5:50 p.m. MDT today, Denver should have its full complement of rookies in time for its second practice of training camp.

Miller’s deal, which consumed nearly half of the Broncos’ rookie salary pool, is reportedly for $21 million — all guaranteed — over four years.

The Broncos worked Thursday their full roster of undrafted rookies, along with signed draftees Orlando Franklin, Mike Mohamed, Julius Thomas and Virgil Green. Mohamed and Franklin each worked on the first team at strongside linebacker and right tackle, respectively, while Thomas saw some occasional work with the top unit in multiple-tight end sets.
