Broncos decline to place RFA tenders on 4 players

Brett Rypein wasn’t the only restricted free agent to have his tender declined by the Denver Broncos on Monday.

The Broncos also declined to pick up the one-year, RFA tenders for safety P.J. Locke, cornerback Essang Bassey and long snapper Jacob Bobenmoyer, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.

Those four players are now set to become unrestricted free agents. It’s still possible that Denver could bring them back for less than the one-year RFA tender salary ($2.63 million).

Locke, in particular, has dressed for 47 games over the last three seasons, logging more than 1,000 snaps on special teams. Locke should be a candidate to return to the team.

The Broncos also declined a one-year, restricted free agent tender for outside linebacker Jonathan Kongbo. Denver did pick up the ERFA tenders for inside linebacker Jonas Griffith, punter Corliss Waitman and offensive lineman Quinn Bailey.
