The Broncos placed tenders on five restricted free agents, the team announced Tuesday morning.

Denver tendered exclusive rights free agents P Britton Colquitt, RB Lance Ball and OT Chris Clark. WR Matthew Willis and DT Ryan McBean, restricted free agents, were also tendered.

Colquitt averaged 40.2 net yards on his 101 punts in his second season as the team's full-time punter.

Ball had 96 carries for 402 yards and a touchdown and added 16-148-1 receiving. Willis had 18 catches for 267 yards and a score.

McBean, who was suspended for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances but is challenging the suspension, had 33 tackles and four sacks last season.
