Broncos center Matt Paradis signs his tender

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Center Matt Paradis, who took every snap for the Denver Broncos from their opener through the Super Bowl, signed his exclusive rights tender on Thursday, four days before they start their offseason program.

Paradis is the only member of the Super Bowl champs who played every snap from scrimmage last season.

He'll anchor a retooled offensive line that includes new veteran tackles Russell Okung and Donald Stephenson and has lost Ryan Clady, Ryan Harris, Tyler Polumbus, Evan Mathis and Louis Vasquez this offseason.

Paradis, a 2014 sixth-round draft choice of the Broncos from Boise State, played for the league's rookie minimum salary of $435,000 last year. He was also the top earner ($391,648) through the league's performance-based pay program.

The Broncos also waived tight end Nick Kasa, whom they signed to their practice squad Jan. 25 to simulate Carolina's Greg Olsen.
