The Denver Broncos have reported most of the signing bonuses for their undrafted rookie class. The highest value was placed on defensive tackle Kyle Peko at $11,000, but tight end Henry Krieger Coble was second with a $10,000 signing bonus.

Mike Klis of 9News noted that signing bonuses don't always point towards eventual starters as Chris Harris Jr. received one of the lowest signing bonuses of all undrafted rookies the Broncos had in 2011 at just $2,000. Harris was re-signed to a five-year, $42.5 million contract.

Here is the full list, also courtesy of Klis:

Player Pos Bonus
Kyle Peko DT $11,000
Henry Krieger Coble TE $10,000
Bralon Addison WR $8,000
David Moala LB $8,000
Justin Murray OT $8,000
Aaron Neary OL $5,000
Lars Hanson OL $4,000
Mose Frazier WR $3,000
John Tidwell DB $3,000
Frank Shannon LB $3,000
Antonio Glover S $2,500
Nathan Theus LS $2,500
Durron Neal WR $2,500
Kalif Raymond KR $2,000
Sadat Sulleyman OG $2,000
Calvin Heurtelou DT $2,000
Vontarrius Dora DE $2,000
Dwayne Norman LB $2,000
Eddie Yarbrough DE $1,000
Shaneil Jenkins DE $1,000

Kyle Kragen, son of former Broncos' lineman Greg Kragen, and defensive back B.J. Lowery  did not receive a signing bonus. Tight end Anthony Norris received a $5,000 signing bonus, but has already been released by the team.
