Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay did hint at his latest wrist surgery at season's end — he's had a procedure in recent weeks on the same wrist he injured in Oakland last season. When asked the day after the season ended what his offseason plans were Lindsay said: "I'm going to go and get healed up." Later, when asked to be more specific, he added: "First just get healed up." He is expected to be ready for OTAs and the Broncos are still expected to talk to Lindsay about a new contract.

Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton will replace the Texans' DeAndre Hopkins in the Pro Bowl. Sutton had been a second alternate at wide receiver with 72 receptions, 1,112 receiving yards, 15.4 yards per catch and six touchdowns -- he led the team in four categories. It means Sutton is the first Broncos wide receiver who will play in a Pro Bowl in his first two seasons in the league.

Newly-hired Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur officially signed his deal Tuesday and had already spent Monday in the team's complex. He's now the fifth offensive coordinator over the last five years and inherits an offense with some work to do in the offensive line and that scored 16 or fewer points in seven of the team's nine losses. The Broncos also finished in the league's bottom five in scoring, total offense, third-down percentage and red-zone percentage.

Broncos coach Vic Fangio, in a statement Sunday, on why he fired offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello after just one season: "After a lot of consideration and discussion after the season, I determined that a change at offensive coordinator ultimately would be best for our team. We need to do everything we can to get better—in all areas—as we start working toward next year.''

When asked Monday about if a sale of the team was a possibility "at some point,'' Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis said: “The answer to that is, it is an option and we've told the beneficiaries that because, you know, if Brittany were to succeed and take over for her father, everybody else is going to have to sign off on that most likely. That may not be a requirement, but it's going to be necessary, I think, moving forward from the trustee viewpoint.''

Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis also said Monday there would have to be "cooperation'' from the other Bowlen children for Brittany Bowlen to be the team's designated owner. He also, for the first time publicly, said a sale of the team is a possibility if that cooperation, with three current lawsuits, doesn't eventually happen.

Broncos president/CEO Joe Ellis spoke at length Monday about the team's on-field performance, the improvements needed on the football side as well as the litigation/ownership situation. He said Brittany Bowlen "has distinguished herself'' and is on track to be the trustees' selection as the team's designated owner, but added she "has plenty of work to do'' before that designation is official. She is currently the Broncos' vice president of strategic initiatives.

Joe Flacco said Monday he expects to have an MRI at some point in the next month to determine if he will still need surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck. He said at that point he will decide if he will keep playing football and that he would talk to the Broncos decision makers after he knows more about "what I do, or don't, need to have done." Flacco added he would be open to returning to the Broncos if Drew Lock is the starter, but getting the MRI was a priority for him right now.
