» Broncos rework Colquitt's contract

Aug 03, 2015 - 9:13 AM - by VonDoom
I wish they would have just released him, but I guess he's sticking around. No word on whether it's an extension yet, but this is what we know so far:

Jeff Legwold ‏@Jeff_Legwold 10m10 minutes ago

With @FieldYates -- #Broncos have re-worked P Britton Colquitt's deal. Colquitt had a 3.75 M cap figure, his salary will now closer to $1.6M

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 3m3 minutes ago

Confirming report #Broncos have reduced base salary of punter Britton Colquitt to $1.6 million Creating $1.4M in cap space

Edit: it's being reported as a straight up pay cut at this point. 2016 salary currently unchanged:

Jeff Legwold ‏@Jeff_Legwold 12m12 minutes ago

In #Broncos re-work of Colquitt's deal team left '16 alone (last yr of deal), deal has $4M cap # in '16. that likely gets a look aftr season

Jeff Legwold ‏@Jeff_Legwold 8m8 minutes ago

Colquitt had the ninth-highest salary cap figure on the #Broncos for this season until the pay cut.

» Broncos add rookie OT Charles Sweeton

Aug 02, 2015 - 8:59 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In need of another offensive tackle, the Broncos signed rookie Charles Sweeton to the roster Sunday.

The team placed rookie offensive tackle Connor Rains on the waived/injured list to make room. Rains injured his foot during Friday's practice.

The 6-foot-5, 291-pound Sweeton had a brief stint with the Chiefs in May, signing with them as a college free agent May 11 before being released May 19.

Sweeton started 45 games in four seasons at Tennessee-Martin. He was a first-team Ohio Valley Conference selection as a senior last year.

» Peyton Manning's pace to stay fast for Broncos

Aug 01, 2015 - 9:34 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The burden of excellence falls on Peyton Manning. The Broncos view themselves as three-dimensional this season, but if championship goals aren't reached, Manning will receive the blame. It's the reality of his ability — he's a five-time NFL MVP — and the position.

Quarterbacks represent the center of the sports universe. They are the hub holding the spokes together. Manning rolled into his 17th training camp last week determined to erase the bitterness of last season's finish — a one-and-done playoff exit — and prove he still can play at a high level after a second-half slump.

The degree of difficulty increased with the change in coaching staffs. Manning is learning coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking, play-action system, something he has found "stimulating." And there is another important layer to this adjustment. Manning must not only know the plays but become comfortable with how he receives them. Gone are the days when former offensive coordinator Adam Gase stood on the sideline and existed as the lone voice in Manning's headset.

» A clean Von Miller out of NFL drug program

Aug 01, 2015 - 8:43 PM - by VonDoom
Here's a little nugget that Klis dropped today. Good news. For those that thought the suspension would have an effect on Von's next contract, I give you this:

KUSA - As Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was dealing with his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse program two years ago, he said there was nothing he could say to earn trust back from his team and fans, only actions.

His actions have been tangibly rewarded as a league source told 9NEWS that because Miller has not tested positive for the past two years, he is no longer in the league's drug program.

After getting tested multiple times a week for two years as a player who was in Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse program, Miller's status has been resent to zero. He has not been drug tested in more than a month. He is not even in stage 1.

The development could not have come at a better time for Miller as he is in the final year of his contract. That means when his agent Joby Branion entertains negotiations for Miller's next contract, the linebacker would be considered no more risk of a drug suspension than the league's teetotalers.

» Gary Kubiak trying something new in Broncos' camp schedule

Aug 01, 2015 - 5:27 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – New coaches and new playbooks for the Denver Broncos mean a new meeting as well.

When the team opened training camp this week, Gary Kubiak said he consciously made a change from his long-standing training camp schedule to give the players more time to learn the team's new schemes.

Kubiak added a meeting for the players into the daily schedule to give the team's position coaches some additional time to review the work that had been done in practice as well as assist the installation process.

"One of the ways that I've set up camp this year that I've never done before, we've actually got three meeting times in a day instead of two," Kubiak said. "We're meeting in the morning, we're meeting at lunch and we're meeting at night. I think this team needs refreshers on our schemes and those type of things on a consistent basis. That is a big importance right now."

» 2015 Seahawks Tackling

Jul 31, 2015 - 5:51 PM - by FanInAZ
When I went to link in the Russell Wilson extension thread, I came across this:

The Seahawks coaching staff led by Assistant Head Coach/Defense Rocky Seto has updated the tackling video released in 2014 as a way to educate coaches, players and fans outside of the organization about the team’s methods of tackling. The philosophy takes the head out of the play and increases safety, all while maintaining the toughness and physicality that makes the game great. NOTE: Like any athletic activity, no tackling technique can completely eliminate the risk of injury.

In short, they're bringing basic rugby fundamentals to football.

» Training Camp Report for 7/31/15 by pnbronco

Jul 31, 2015 - 5:48 PM - by pnbronco
Hey guys it's that time of year again when camp starts and I do my best to give a camp report with non technical terms. I am a 100% fan and for me Sam, Mike and Will are the names of men I know.....so let's get started....

These are heads up for anyone trying to get down there this year. They do have parking kind of where it was in the past, just a little further east so keep going till you see the signs. We usually park at the Park, it's a OK walk so if the parking is full keep that in mind. Here is a link that gives you a summery of what you can do and what you can't:

http://www.denverbroncos.com/schedul...iningcamp.html

Heads up everyone. There are no trees anymore and it got hotter than snot out there today. Even with sun block I burned some....so keep this in mind if you are sensitive to heat/sun. I heard so many babies crying out there....it's super hot with no shade so please keep this in mind if you want to attend....it's much tougher than it's been in the past and no real place for the kids to play other than the misting thing.

Next thing I noticed. We use to sit along the side lines so you could spread out pretty good from the 10 to the 10 side lines. Now we are sitting on a longer slop and it's what would be a end zone view. For pictures it's fine, but it does feel different and harder to see over all.

Started out as normal with Special teams punting. Those catching punts were Bolden, Norwood, Patton, Taylor and Williams. Nothing really stood out to me today one way or another on any of them today. Will try to concentrate on them better later in camp.

Got my first view of Sambrailo.....a big kid. Big shoulders and I got... [Read More]

Definately want to read all the reports from camp but this is an interesting view for those of us that can't attend.

EDIT: This stinks, they only did the first 40 minutes of the practice. Don't know if they will do more later or not.

» John Elway ready for Broncos camp, has high hopes for season

Jul 30, 2015 - 4:37 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The wait is almost over. The Broncos reported to Dove Valley Thursday preparing to get back on the field and kick off training camp, which begins Friday.

"I feel good about where we are now," Broncos general manager John Elway said. "Hopefully this is our year."

Elway said no players will begin the season on the physically unable to perform list. The plan is to move linebackers Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall along slowly as they recover from injuries. That plan also will hold true for Demaryius Thomas as he arrives for Broncos workouts for the first time after sitting out organized team activities and workouts with the team as he negotiated a new contract.

» Training camp press conference, 7/30/15

Jul 30, 2015 - 2:57 PM - by VonDoom
They apparently changed Dove Valley to the UCHealth Training Center. Joe Ellis and the CEO of UCHealth unveiled a banner there. They eventually got to football questions (Elway, Kubiak, etc to come).

Joe Ellis:

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 9m9 minutes ago

Joe Ellis on Goodell's handling of Brady ban: "I respect and understand his role to uphold the integrity of the game."

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 10m10 minutes ago

#Broncos CEO Joe Ellis on Goodell's Brady ruling: "I spend my time concerned with the Broncos and I am focused on what we do here"

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 9m9 minutes ago

Joe Ellis: "Last year at training camp was pretty flat, I think all of you know that." Looks forward to having fans back at camp.

Nicki Jhabvala ‏@NickiJhabvala 9m9 minutes ago

Joe Ellis on Elway and Kubiak: "they both have the same goal in mind."

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 8m8 minutes ago

Joe Ellis says he doesn't want to speak on whether one of the Bowlen children is closer to stepping up. "No real timetable" on transition.

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 7m7 minutes ago

#Broncos Ellis: "I hope we continue our success. We would like to go a little bit further in the tournament. That's the goal."

Andrew Mason ‏@MaseDenver 7m7 minutes ago

Joe Ellis says he can't project whether Pat Bowlen will be on hand for his Ring of Fame induction ceremony on Nov. 1 at the Green Bay game.

» Report: OT Jake Long to meet with Broncos

Jul 29, 2015 - 7:01 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
According to New York Daily News NFL and Giants columnist Ralph Vacchiano, tackle Jake Long will visit with the Broncos.

Long, the former No. 1 overall draft pick who was released by the Rams in March, reportedly made his second visit with the Giants on Wednesday and met with the Falcons on Tuesday. The Broncos will cap his NFL meetings, Vacchiano reports.

A standout lineman at the University of Michigan, Long was a consensus first-team All-American in 2006 and then a unanimous first-team All-American in 2007, leading to his selection by the Dolphins as the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

» OT Jake Long visiting Broncos tonight

Jul 29, 2015 - 3:03 PM - by VonDoom
Can't hurt to give him a look.

The Giants had Jake Long in for a second visit on Wednesday as they consider their options in the wake of left tackle Will Beatty’s torn pectoral, but the Giants aren’t the only team that lost a player at that spot to injury this offseason.

Not coincidentally, they also aren’t the only team kicking the tires on the former first overall draft pick. Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Long is planning to leave New Jersey on Wednesday night to visit with the Broncos.
