According to the Denver Posts Troy Renck, the Denver Broncos have offered tight end Virgil Green a multi-year deal.

According to Renck, Green characterized the talks between him and the Broncos as "encouraging", and that he is currently weighing his options There's apparently thirteen teams who have contacted Green's agent with "six to eight" remaining as serious suitors for the tight end.

"The Broncos have talked to me. They didn't tell me what my role would be but they made it clear how valuable I was to them. I love playing in Denver, and I love the fans. But I can't make the decision just based on that," Green said. "I appreciate the offer. But I don't want to react too quickly until I know how other teams see me."

Specifics of the Broncos offer remain unknown, but Renck speculates that it's somewhere in the $2-3M range.

With Julius Thomas likely leaving via free agency, and backup tight end Jacob Tamme also a free agent the Broncos view Virgil Green as a priority this offseason. Green is considered one of the better run blocking tight ends in the NFL and would be a perfect fit into Head Coach Gary Kubiak's offense.
