ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Friday tendered their three exclusive rights free agents—tackle Paul Cornick, guard Ben Garland and linebacker Brandon Marshall—Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Cornick is a second-year player who appeared in 12 contests for the Broncos in 2014, starting Games 6-8 at right tackle in addition to opening Games 11-13 as a blocking tight end.

Signed by the N.Y. Jets as a college free agent from North Dakota State University in 2012, Cornick spent his first two seasons competing on practice squads with the Jets (2012) and Broncos (2012-13).

Garland, a second-year player, saw action in eight regular-season games and one playoff contest for the Broncos in 2014 after spending the previous two years on the club’s practice squad.

A former All-Mountain West Conference defensive lineman at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Garland signed with the Broncos as a college free agent in 2010 before a two-year stint on the team’s reserve/military list as he fulfilled his obligations to the U.S.A.F.

Marshall is a fourth-year player who has appeared in 20 regular-season contests (13 starts) and four playoff games (1 start) during his career with Jacksonville (2012) and Denver (2013-14).

He opened 13-of-14 regular-season games for the Broncos last season and led the team with 110 tackles (88 solo) to go along with two sacks (17 yds.), one interception (0 yds.), nine passes defensed and one forced fumble. His 110 tackles ranked second in the NFL in 2014 among players in their first year as a starter.

Marshall entered the league as a fifth-round selection (142nd overall) by the Jaguars in the 2012 NFL Draft from the University of Nevada.
