News: The Denver Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this offseason and Orlando Franklin provided some insight into their plans Monday by tweeting that he's moving from right tackle to left guard. "Left guard, excited to learn and improve this offseason. I will give it my all," Franklin wrote on Twitter. He'd replace Zane Beadles, who left for Jacksonville in free agency.
Impact: That apparently means Manny Ramirez would stay at center and Chris Clark, who filled in at left tackle after All-Pro Ryan Clady went on IR with a foot injury in Week 2 last season, will switch sides and play right tackle. The Broncos' offensive line was dominated by Seattle in the Super Bowl and Peyton Manning was under constant pressure in Denver's 43-8 loss.

News: Miller has shed 20 pounds as he works his way back from a torn right ACL and says his goal is to "play every game" in 2014.
Impact: Miller bulked up to 270 pounds last season, 24 more than when he was the second overall pick out of Texas A+M in 2011. Miller is hoping to bounce back from a rough season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a blown out knee on Dec. 22.

News: Despite numerous reports to the contrary, Thomas didn't suffer a separated shoulder during the Super Bowl and has been working out with Peyton Manning at Duke University, the Denver Post reports.
Impact: Thomas apparently missed the first day of Manning's offseason workout, which led to the speculation that the wideout was still hurt. It's unclear how much Thomas is working out with Manning, but he'll likely take it easy until he's completely healthy. Thomas is a free agent after this season and could garner a big contract, if he can show that he's over the shoulder injury. Coming off two huge seasons with Manning under center, Thomas is averaging 93 catches for 1,432 yards and 12 touchdowns over that span.

News: Miller, who underwent surgery in January to repair a torn ACL, is progressing in his recovery but said he won't rush back from the injury, reports.
Impact: Miller was suspended for the first six games of last season and was only able to rack up five sacks in the eight games in which he played, before suffering the torn ACL in Week 16 against the Texans. If he's able to get back to full strength, he could be a solid IDP play this season, especially if teams focus their attention on newly-acquired pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.

News: Thomas' shoulder separation he suffered in the Broncos' Super Bowl loss to the Seahawks two months ago is keeping him from joining his fellow receivers at Duke University for Peyton Manning's offseason workouts this week, reports.
Impact: The injury occurred on a vicious hit from Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor early in Super Bowl XLVIII. Thomas could still be limited in some of the OTA work in the weeks to come, but the Broncos don't expect issues when training camp opens.
