  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Decides to remain with Denver

    Strnad agreed Tuesday with the Broncos on a one-year deal, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.

    Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Strnad was reportedly close to signing a deal with the Panthers, but ultimately the 27-year-old elected to remain in Denver. He played in all 17 regular-season contests in 2023 but played solely on special teams and finished with just five tackles. The Wake Forest product is thus in line to serve as a depth linebacker and core special-teams contributor for Denver in 2024.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Gearing up for offseason program

    Strnad (wrist) will be ready to participate when Broncos team workouts open up this spring, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

    The Broncos acquired Strnad in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, intrigued by the pass-defending skill set he showcased during his career at Wake Forest. After dislocating the lunate bone and suffering multiple torn ligaments in his wrist during an August practice, Strnad did not ultimately field a single snap during his rookie campaign. Strnad's rehabilitation process incorporated upper body exercises several weeks ago, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 News. Now, it's confirmed the linebacker will be ready to roll when offseason workouts begin in late April.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Season-ending wrist injury

    Strnad will undergo wrist surgery and miss the 2020 season, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Although he's only a late fifth-round pick out of Wake Forest, Strnad was a candidate to provide upgraded coverage snaps over starting inside linebacker Todd Davis, who's currently sitting out with a calf injury. Strnad's absence might leave more snaps on Davis' plate when he gets over the calf issue, while the other inside linebacker spot will go to Alexander Johnson.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Impressing his head coach

    Broncos head coach Vic Fangio has liked what he's seen from Strnad to start camp, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Strnad finished second in the ACC with 105 total tackles in 2018 and was exceeding that pace in 2019 before tearing his bicep seven games into the season. Alexander Johnson and Todd Davis are solidified as the starters, but Strnad's coverage ability could earn him a reserve role in 2020 and a chance to fill Davis's shoes if he is not resigned for 2021.
