News surfaced Tuesday morning that Broncos rookies Dalton Risner and Drew Lock could miss the start of training camp while continuing to negotiate their contracts.

By lunch time, at least one of the two appears ready to report to Dove Valley for work on Wednesday. According to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic, Risner has agreed to terms.

A little while later, Mike Klis reported the terms of the deal.

Risner was all smiles when the Broncos later posted a picture to their own Twitter account of the Wiggins, Colorado native signing the deal.

Now fans will wait to see if the Broncos and second-round pick Lock can finalize a deal in time for the start of training camp. Players report on Wednesday with the first practice scheduled for Thursday morning.
