John Elway is giving his clearest indication yet that he's going to pursue Kirk Cousins Mike Hughes Color Rush Jersey , the prize of this year's free-agent quarterbacks.

"We're going to explore all options in free agency and see where that goes," Elway said Wednesday at the NFL combine. "Obviously we've got the fifth pick in the draft, too. That will all play into it. We'll continue to look at all of the options out there when it comes to quarterback."

The Denver Broncos general manager stressed that he'll look at "anybody that won't be under contract."

With the Washington Redskins moving on to Alex Smith, whom they've agreed to acquire from Kansas City, that group of free agents would include Cousins, who figures to command more than the record $27.5 million that Jimmy Garoppolo will receive in his new deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Elway said he's confident the team could absorb a big free-agent contract under the salary cap, revealed the Broncos are considering moving Ronald Leary back to left guard and indicated highly paid receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders aren't going anywhere.

"Yes, the plan is to have them back," Elway said.

That means, Elway will pick up Thomas' $4 million bonus in March, which will keep the last two years of the wide receiver's contract in place.

"That is the plan, yes."

The returns of tight end Jake Butt and slot receiver Carlos Henderson, who spent their rookie years on IR last season, could help bolster the Broncos' offense, as well.

Elway has been stung by the draft selections of Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, but he hit the jackpot six years ago when he landed Peyton Manning.

The Broncos have missed the playoffs each of the two seasons after Manning retired, including a 5-11 season last year when they cycled through quarterbacks Trevor Siemian, Osweiler and Lynch twice .

Elway said he's eager to see the promising class of college quarterbacks this week that features Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen Adam Vinatieri Jersey , Lamar Jackson and Mason Rudolph.

"There is a possibility of some really good quarterbacks coming out of this draft," Elway said.

Elway got burned two years ago when he moved up to take Lynch with the 26th overall pick only to watch him founder on the sideline most of the past two seasons.

"Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing," Elway said with a laugh. "Misses don't bother me. We just have to figure out a way to get it right. That is what we are working on."

Even with so much uncertainty at quarterback, Elway has been in a good mood this week.

"If there's any year I wanted to play it was last year, to come back and play as a player and try to get things turned around," Elway said. "Sitting in my chair was a long, long year."

Elway is also a member of the league's competition committee which has been discussing simplifying the catch rule that's become so cumbersome in recent seasons and which commissioner Roger Goodell has put atop his offseason fix-it list.

Elway said the competition committee is making progress in that regard.

"I think it'll be much simpler and I think everyone will understand what a catch is and what it isn't," Elway said. "I think that we're in the process of everything that we covered so far, it's going to be much better."

So, "survive the ground" will soon be out of the NFL's lexicon.

"Yeah, going to the ground, that'll be changed," Elway said.

Goodell wanted the league to go back and start from scratch after tweaks to the rule only made it more troublesome.

"Or let's go back to what the old definition of what a catch was, right? Two feet down, control and move and then you've got a catch," Elway said. "That's what it's going to be more like."

Xander Bogaerts hit a three-run homer during a six-run fifth inning, J.D. Martinez and Eduardo Nunez also went deep, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Washington Nationals 11-4 on Tuesday.

Martinez drove in four and leads the majors with 26 homers and 71 RBIs. Boston has won 17 of its last 19 interleague games.

Washington has lost four straight and 16 of 21 to fall to 42-42, its first time at .500 since it was 17-17.

Red Sox starter Brian Johnson allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings. Brandon Workman (1-0) pitched a perfect seventh.

Nationals starter Tanner Roark (3-10) allowed a career-high nine runs in seven innings and is 1-8 with a 5.19 ERA in 12 appearances (11 starts) since May 5.

The Yankees improved to a major league-best 21-6 against left-handed starters and remain a game behind Boston for the majors’ best record.

Nick Markakis and Ender Inciarte each hit two-run homers for Atlanta, which ended a four-game winning streak. Braves starter Sean Newcomb allowed five runs in 2 2/3 innings in the shortest start of his career.

Kershaw had not gone as late as July 3 with just one win since his rookie year in 2008. That year he didn’t earn his second victory until Aug. 7.

MARINERS 4, ANGELS 1

SEATTLE (AP) – Wade LeBlanc allowed one run over seven innings and Seattle beat Los Angeles for its eighth straight victory.

The Mariners announced they signed LeBlanc (4-0) to a contract extension before his start and the soft-tossing left-hander showed them they made a good decision. LeBlanc allowed three hits, struck out four and retired his final 11 batters.

Greinke (9-5) gave up two runs in the second inning to end his 13-inning scoreless streak but was otherwise sharp in winning his fourth straight game.
