Tim Patrick is poised for a big season for the Broncos this season with a new QB and offense.

Anticipation is the magic word when it comes to the 2022 Denver Broncos.

Thanks to the addition of Russell Wilson, it fits just about every facet of this franchise right now. People can’t wait to see what this team looks and plays like.

One of the players included in that is Tim Patrick.

In the last two years, the Broncos receiver has been a model of...

Look for the 6-foot-4, 250-pound athlete to separate himself come training camp.

Jonas Griffith didn’t know what coaching staff he was auditioning for at the end of the 2021 season. His assignment was mop-up duty in the last four games — just another inside linebacker, the ninth, that the Denver Broncos trotted out to play following a swath of injuries in yet...

After the Broncos didn’t resign AJ Johnson it left a hole in who will start along side Josey Jewell. Who will win the position battle and be the guy to step up?

Alex Singleton committed to play football for Montana State in 2011 then redshirted his freshman year. Singleton saw his first snaps with the Bobcats in 2012 when he had 40 tackles and one interception that year. In 2013 Singleton saw his breakout year for the Bobcats, he finished with 110...

We’re digging deep to find anything interesting to talk about as we are in the calm before the storm of the 2022 NFL season

We know it is the lull before training camp when the biggest news we have is about a player visiting a farm.

Don’t get me wrong, I like these insights into the players, but I’m ready for football already. I want to hear about Russell Wilson dropping dimes with multiple 30+ yard TD bombs in training camp. I want to hear...

The quarterbacks you want on the field when it’s late and close

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

How has Russell Wilson fared during his career in late and close situations?

Russell Wilson has now played ten NFL seasons. So I decided to see how he compares to other quarterbacks over that time in late and close game situations. I define close as within eight points (either up or down) and late as within the final eight minutes of the fourth quarter or in overtime.

There are 99 QBs who have thrown twenty or more passes in these game situations over the...

Denver Bronco’s local favorite Dalton Risner is a starter making the transition to playing primarily outside zone. Will he retain his spot as a starter?

The key to Nathaniel Hackett’s offense is going to be the offensive line. Getting the best 5 players is going to be key and to some extent puts the roster status of incumbent starters up in the air. Dalton Risner is going to need to ball out if he wants to...

The Denver Broncos need more from their tight-end position in 2022. Is there a spot for Saubert on the roster as a blocking TE?

Eric Saubert was drafted in the 5th round by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2017 NFL draft. He has bounced around the league going from the Falcons to the Patriots to the Raiders to the Bears and to the Jaguars before being signed to the Broncos in the 2021 offseason.

Broncos roster review: Offensive lineman Zack Johnson

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA T

The Denver Broncos have plenty of depth at offensive guard, so Zack Johnson would need to do a lot to make a case for a roster spot in 2022.

After the 2022 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos first waived and then re-signed free agent guard Zack Johnson. He had previously spent time on Denver’s practice squad in November of 2021.
