Three veterans look poised to return in 2020. The Denver Broncos have picked up the options for all three, but declined the option for Ron Leary.

With the NFL’s new league year quickly approaching, John Elway made good on what he said at the NFL Combine to pick up the contract options for Todd Davis, Von Miller, and Brandon McManus. Ron Leary’s contract option was not picked up, per the Athletic’s Nicki Jhabvala.

None of these moves should come as a surprise. It remains to be seen what the plan is for Davis. 9News’ Troy Renck reported that Vic Fangio expressed a desire to upgrade at linebacker. If the Broncos decide later this offseason to trade or cut Davis, it would cost at least $1 million against the salary cap.

There has also been reports that the Broncos plan to use a 2nd round RFA tender to retain Elijah Wilkinson, but nothing official just yet.
