The Denver Broncos announced the signing of five players to futures contracts and announced they have fired one of their coaches this afternoon. Defensive Lineman Ben Garland, Safety Duke Ihenacho, Tackle Paul Cornick and Center Quentin Saulsberry were the first four names released by the Broncos Twitter account.

The fifth player, Running Back Jeremiah Johnson was announced minutes later.

All five were members of the team's Practice Squad in 2012.

They join Guard Justin Boren and Wide Receiver Gerell Robinson as the first set of players to make up the offseason Roster for the team.

In other news, Jeff Legwold tweeted that Defensive Backs coach Ron Milus was fired by the team.

The Broncos will certainly have a different look next season and a different plan of attack. They will not only be filling Milus' spot, but Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy's as well after McCoy accepted the head coaching gig in San Diego.

Go Broncos!

UPDATE 6:44pm MT: The Denver Post has now changed their story, saying Milus' contract expired at the end of the season and he wasn't renewed.
