» Prepped for Wednesday OTA start

May 26, 2015 - 7:08 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – After months of workouts and training, the Denver Broncos will don helmets for the first time in the offseason and return to the practice field for the start of its organized team activities on Wednesday.

Phase three of the Broncos’ offseason schedule OTAs will run until Friday, May 29. The team will then break for the weekend and return to Dove Valley for Monday and Tuesday training.

The first session of OTAs marks the first time the Broncos defense and offense will line up in head-to-head drills under the instruction of first-year head coach Gary Kubiak. In addition to a collection of new coaches, Denver will also usher in its 2015 draft class led by first-round pick Shane Ray. Wednesday’s practice is set to be Ray’s first outing as a Bronco after suffering a foot injury in his collegiate finale.

» Tevrin Brandon hit by car, still on schedule to practice next week

May 25, 2015 - 2:01 PM - by Zweems56
So, not sure if anyone saw the news yet or not, but I've got a strange story.

Dude we signed to a futures contract got hit by a car Sunday morning I believe. Some of you know I'm from NJ. I met a guy Sunday (girlfriend's cousin's boyfriend) at my girlfriend's graduation party who played with Tevrin Brandon at Monmouth and they're pretty good friends. Said he got hit by a hit and run suspected DUI and sent a snapchat of him in a neck brace on Sunday. Apparently he's all good though and is going to practice later this week. Troy Renck just posted this on twitter a bit ago.

Edit: Changed day he got hit. I heard Sunday night and assumed it happened the day before. Apparently early Sunday morning.

» Derek Wolfe hopes new season brings back old form

May 25, 2015 - 1:19 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When the Denver Broncos watched the list of players on injured reserve grow in 2013, it included defensive regulars like linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and defensive end Derek Wolfe.

Miller bounced back during the 2014 season with 14 sacks and was named to the Pro Bowl. Harris Jr. completed one of the most remarkable recoveries in league history going from ACL surgery to his first game in seven months on his way to his first Pro Bowl appearance.

Wolfe's recovery from a frightening seizure on the team bus, however, has taken a little longer.

Wolfe said he felt "healthy" last season, but he didn't feel like the player he had been before his incident; that there was just something missing from his game.

» Versatility the key for Vance Walker and the D-line

May 23, 2015 - 9:55 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- If you want to play on Bill Kollar's defensive line, you can't do just one thing. That's why free-agent pickup Vance Walker might be an ideal fit for the rotation up front.

From Georgia Tech to Atlanta to Oakland to Kansas City, Walker has been a chameleon, remaking himself to fit the scheme and the role his coaches wanted him to play. That has allowed him to put six NFL seasons under his belt and ensured that he sat on the market just six days after the Chiefs released him in March.

Defensive linemen like Walker might not stay with one team -- just like they don't stay in one spot along the line. But they do have value. Walker began building up his reputation immediately after going from Georgia Tech to the nearby Falcons.

» Two Broncos in PFF's Top 10 of 2014

May 19, 2015 - 3:35 PM - by VonDoom
If you care about such things, PFF completed their top 101 players of 2014 today with numbers 10-1. I haven't followed most of the others, but I thought it might interest some of you to see that two Broncos made their top 10 - Von Miller at #10 and Chris Harris at #4 (JJ Watt was, once again, number one):

10. Von Miller, ED, Denver Broncos (68th)

Just another season of excellence as we have come to expect from Miller. Back on a full 16-game schedule, Miller recorded 74 total pressures, the second-best season of his short career in that regard. More than just a pure pass rusher, Miller continues to put his immense physical talents to good use in run defense, earning a grade above +20.0 in that area for the fourth straight season.

Best Performance: Week 10, DEN@OAK, +7.9

Key Stat: Miller graded positively as a pass rusher in all bar two games this season, consecutive outings against San Diego and Cincinnati.
4. Chris Harris Jr, CB, Denver Broncos (64th)

Coming so quickly off the back of a torn ACL, Harris’ season was scarcely believable. A positive grade in every single game, a season passer rating allowed below 50, no touchdowns allowed and less than 400 yards conceded on more than 700 coverage snaps. Throw in that he covered the slot for more than 250 snaps and Harris’ season is all the more remarkable.

Best Performance: Week 5, ARZ@DEN, +4.1

Key Stat: Harris has earned a positive coverage grade in each of his last 20 starts

» Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett Expect a Breakout Season

May 18, 2015 - 2:23 PM - by Ziggy
ENGLEWOOD – Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett spent a combined six weeks on the Denver Broncos active roster last season. They never saw the field.

For their contributions, the rookie duo out of CSU was awarded three-year contracts that offer zero job security. As undrafted free agents, if the Broncos want fresh meat on their practice squad, they can cut whomever they need. That's life for low-profile NFL players. The pay checks will clear if you continue to out-perform at least one player in your position group. The moment you don't is the moment you become irrelevant.

Bibbs, a running back, and Barrett, an outside linebacker, were never on the verge of being released last season with all of the injuries Denver endured at their positions. But 2014-15 is behind them. So is another draft class and batch of college free agents. They're not the shiny new toys the Broncos acquired for next-to-nothing anymore.

"Honestly, I only watched the first round of the draft because I think the first round is fun," Bibbs said. "Other than that, I really didn't pay attention. I didn't care about the other stuff. I can only control what I can control, and that's how I play. I really didn't care who they drafted."

Added Bibbs: "I definitely think that this is the year that I get my shot. I hope they give me my shot, because that's all you can really ask for as a player. I know that when that happens, I'll do my best and nothing but good things will happen. ... Last year, I kind of marked it off as my redshirt year, kind of like I was in college. I've been here for a year, I've gotten to know my running backs coach (Eric Studesville), I know what he expects out of me."

» Lorenzo Doss signs with Broncos

May 15, 2015 - 3:19 PM - by Northman
Fifth round pick signed and delivered.

http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-an...7-7aee7356c8af

The fifth-round pick became the Broncos' third 2015 draftee to sign his deal.



Cornerback Lorenzo Doss signed his first NFL contract Thursday, joining nose tackle Darius Kilgo and center/guard Max Garcia as 2015 Broncos draft picks to sign their deals.
Doss, a fifth-round pick from Tulane, hopes to replicate the ball-hawking success he had with the Green Wave, for which he intercepted 15 passes over the last three years.
The 21-year-old cornerback made his on-field debut at last weekend's rookie camp

» Broncos' oldest rookie, seven years from his last game, gets chance

May 13, 2015 - 8:22 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- He's a 28-year-old British citizen, a native of Bermuda, who has painstakingly kept a football dream alive.

He's worked 60-hour weeks to pay his bills, worked out in the beams of car headlights and put up videos of himself kicking on YouTube to attract the NFL’s attention.

But here is Karl Schmitz, the Denver Broncos' oldest rookie, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound package of hope, confidence and pragmatism. Schmitz wants to be an NFL kicker, and seven years after his last college football game, the Broncos are giving him a chance.

» Pat Bowlen elected into Ring of Fame

May 13, 2015 - 1:41 PM - by VonDoom
Team owner Pat Bowlen has been elected into the Broncos' Ring of Fame this year as the 28th member of the group, the team announced on Wednesday following the club's annual selection committee meeting. His addition will be made official at halftime during the Broncos' Week 8 game against the Packers on November 1.

With over three decades of NFL experience exemplifying a devotion to consistent and sustained success that has seen the Broncos rise in the NFL ranks as one of the league's top franchises, Mr. Bowlen has been a steady guide as his teams have won 61 percent of their regular-season games, earning 17 playoff trips and six Super Bowl appearances, including two Super Bowl victories.
This is a great idea.

With the culture Pat created, how he competes to be the best & the relationships he has w/players & fans, no one means more to the Broncos.
