http://www.milehighreport.com/2016/5...inicamp-roster

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 47m47 minutes ago

RB Devontae Booker isn't at #Broncos minicamp. He's in Utah for his commencement. He flies in tonight and will be at practice tomorrow.

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 46m46 minutes ago

Paxton Lynch is doing the switch with Booker. He's headed to Memphis after #Broncos minicamp today for his commencement tomorrow.

Lindsay Jones ‏@bylindsayhjones 56m56 minutes ago

So far in the portion of rookie minicamp open to media, Paxton Lynch has only taken snaps under center.

Lindsay Jones ‏@bylindsayhjones 1h1 hour ago

I know you guys have missed my glove updates, so here you go: Broncos rookie QB Paxton Lynch is wearing one on his left hand.

» Could This Be The Breakout Year For Cody Lattimer?

May 06, 2016 - 12:22 PM - by OrangeHoof
A former second-round pick, wide receiver Cody Lattimer faces a make-or-break year in 2016. He hasn't seen the field that much and it was painful to hear that he didn't even know Peyton Manning's audible signals. The Indiana product has made some nice plays on special teams but has, otherwise, done little to distinguish himself.

I presume he is on the standard three-year rookie contract with team option and, if so, he'll be gone in 2017 if he doesn't make significant progress. Whether Sanchez or Lynch is the QB, the playbook will need to be dumbed down compared to Manning or Osweiler. That might help Lattimer integrate into the offense.

Andre Caldwell just signed with Detroit but Norwood and Fowler should be back to vie for the #3 receiver spot. Cody is the most talented of the three candidates but his want-to is still in question unless he aggressively works to get on the field more often.

Your thoughts?

» In wake of Jeff Heuerman's injury last season, Broncos alter rookie camp

May 06, 2016 - 11:07 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Almost a year ago to the day, a somewhat sullen Gary Kubiak stepped to the podium and revealed tight end Jeff Heuerman would miss his first NFL season because of a torn ACL. Heuerman suffered the injury in the Broncos' rookie minicamp.

At the time, Kubiak said “I feel terrible for Jeff’’ and used the phrase “unfortunate situation’’ to describe Heuerman’s injury. Iin the wake of that injury, as well as the season-ending injury Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. suffered in his rookie minicamp last year, things have changed.

“I think everybody’s taken a hard look at that and we have too," Kubiak said.

» Von Miller: "I'm going to be a Denver Bronco for life"

May 05, 2016 - 2:51 PM - by VonDoom
I didn't see this posted yet, though I saw it on Twitter last night. Thought it was worth a thread:

"I'm going to be here in Denver no matter what," Miller said. "The contract is going to take care of itself. I'm going to be a Denver Bronco for life."

However, don't expect Miller to show up to workouts this week. He's getting ready for a trip to Las Vegas this weekend as a Mother's Day gift to his mom, Gloria, who has never missed a game of his.

Though not at Dove Valley, Miller has kept track of what is going on in the NFL, especially with the Broncos drafting quarterback Paxton Lynch in the first round.

"Paxton, he looks like a superstar to me," he said.

Miller said he sees no reason Denver can't repeat as Super Bowl champ.

» Mr. Irrelevant trade?

May 05, 2016 - 2:49 PM - by chazoe60
How did we trade the Mr. Irrelevant pick? The final pick in the 7th round is a compensatory pick is it not? I was under the impression that comp picks can't be traded until next season?

» In the line of fire

May 05, 2016 - 12:53 PM - by Spiritguy
This is a very interesting read. 4 lineman from different teams talk about their frustrations with the media and social networks. Especially all the crap sent their way from folks that don't know anything about line play. They also get into the lack of teaching fundamentals for lineman.

CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Steel clanks in one part of the gym, while the punching of bags is heard in another as the big-bodied men go through a variety of drills, their grunting and groaning creating a muscular symphonic soundtrack.

Inside the O-Line Performance Center here, owned and operated by former NFL lineman LeCharles Bentley, Tennessee Titans guard Chance Warmack has just finished up a grueling workout. With a handful of several of the league's linemen still working out nearby, under the watchful eye of Bentley, a sort of self-help guru who doesn't miss a thing in drills, Warmack talked about the state of offensive line play in the NFL.

"I call this place the Land of the Persecuted," I told Warmack. "You guys took a beating last year."

"Yep," he said, his shirt drenched in sweat. "We've become the NFL scapegoats."

» Broncos waive TE Richard Gordon

May 04, 2016 - 3:28 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos waived tight end Richard Gordon, the team announced Wednesday.

The six-year veteran was originally signed on Oct. 14, 2015 to bolster Denver's depth at tight end. He was active for five games and played five total snaps (one on offense, four on special teams) in the team's Week 8 matchup against the Packers. Gordon was waived Dec. 1 when the Broncos needed to upgrade their safety depth after multiple injuries. He was later re-signed following the end of the postseason.

» Renck: Broncos NOT picking up 5th year option on Sylvester Williams

May 02, 2016 - 2:13 PM - by VonDoom
Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 1m1 minute ago

According to #NFL source, #Broncos are not exercising 5th year option on Sly Williams

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 33s33 seconds ago

Understand #Broncos pleased w Sly Williams' progress last year. But nose tackles market has shifted last few years, making 2017 cap # high

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 59s60 seconds ago

The #Broncos were happy w/ Sly's production last season, but that $6.75M cap figure is a rather large # for a nose tackle and 2-down player.

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 5s6 seconds ago

Sly could still re-sign for a lesser # if he wants or test free agency after 2016 season.

» Apparently Denver wants to run the ball or something

May 02, 2016 - 10:03 AM - by G_Money
Denver was 17th in rushing attempts and 17th in yards last year, with 1718 total. That doesn't sound bad until you realize that Denver was TRYING to run the ball, in fact built their offense around rushing, and still couldn't be consistent enough to be a chain-moving offense. They had 85 rushing first downs. The 1997 Broncos had 138, and 135 in 1998 as well. The Houston Texans in Kubiak's playoff years had 114 and 131.

For better or worse, Kubiak wants to run other teams to death. For this team, that's going to be better - nobody wants Sanchez or Lynch having to carry the offense around. The team still threw for almost 4000 yards and ranked higher in passing yards and attempts than in rushing. The passing game is going to have to be there, but the rushing attack in a Kubiak offense needs to carry the water as a top-5 unit, and Denver was nowhere close last year.

Injuries were part of the problem, but shoddy play was definitely another. Denver was 17th in adjusted line yards, and 23rd when it came to getting stuffed in short yardage or tackled behind the line of scrimmage. Some of that was running into a stacked box because Manning couldn't take the top off the defense any more and teams wanted to make Oz feel the pressure as a player with almost no playing time before this year.

Well we're still going to be running into a stacked box this year with Sanchez, and Lynch - whenever he sees the field - is still going to be green as pistachio ice cream. That problem won't change for a minute, so the Broncos need to be able to move people and make holes anyway.

Hello free agency! I see we had seen enough of our woeful tackle situation that we replaced both tackles (even though we have one coming back from injury in Sambrailo). Sambrailo is supposed to fight for the right... [Read More]

» Replacing Malik Jackson?

May 02, 2016 - 3:29 AM - by Broncoknight30
He was far more valuable imo to the defense than many think. To me the key was the push from the middle that made the pocket uncomfortable for every QB they faced. Especially in the play off run. I know I am not Einstein with that observation, but I do think Malik along with Wolfe were far more valuable than many think. Especially Jackson. Without a pocket to step into, the outside guys do not just run by. Meaning, their pursuit becomes that much more effective.

Here is an example of that.




I know in this hard cap era, it is literally impossible to sign EVERYONE. I guess I am a little concerned over losing that effectiveness that Jackson provided.
