Examining the Broncos’ top position battles entering training camp

What’s life without a little competition? The Broncos will be anything but short of it when training camp begins on Thursday. After five weeks to get away from football and refresh during the summer, the Broncos will hit the ground running in preparation for the season opener September 11. While players like Von Miller and Aqib Talib have little to nothing to prove to the coaches and fans leading up to that point, there are plenty of other players who will be fighting for their livelihood...

Former Broncos safety David Bruton Jr. retires

David Bruton Jr., who played a major role in the Broncos' 2015 Super Bowl season and devoted much of his time and resources to the Denver community during his seven years as a Bronco, has retired from the NFL.

AFC West Position Rankings: Running Backs

Continuing our series ranking position groups across the AFC West, today we look at the workhorses in the backfield.

Ah, the running backs.

A position so necessary for an effective offense but one often so fragile - dependent on the health of a player who gets hit more often than almost any other as well as on a playbook that knows how to effectively use the run in a pass-heavy league.

Pat Kirwan jokes in his blockbuster football book, “Take your eye off the ball,” that if Yogi Berra...

Horse Tracks: ‘Denver Broncos elements of style - Jersey Edition’ revisited

With the 2017 NFL Season right around the corner, we’re revisiting Mile High Report’s 2011 guide to proudly wearing a Broncos jersey... as if there is a wrong way.

I’ll be honest, it was very freeing for me to write this article in 2011 outlining some of the minor fashion faux pas that some fans exhibit when wearing their Broncos jerseys. The original article was written with tongue firmly wedged in cheek (I mean how could there be a wrong way to wear a Broncos jersey?). However, with...

Broncos Roster 2017: Derek Wolfe

With all the issues on the defensive line in 2016, Derek Wolfe will need to take on an even larger leadership role in 2017.

Name: Derek Wolfe
Position: DE
Height: 6-5 Weight: 285
Age: 27 Experience: 6th
College: Cincinnati

Derek Wolfe is the most important player on the interior defensive line. He is the main cog in the rotation. Whether run or pass, Wolfe is the one who will be the anchor for the defense upfront. Since joining the Broncos in 2012, he has been a monster on the field.

There...

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Who will put up bigger numbers in McCoy’s offense: Thomas or Sanders?

The Denver Broncos are in the enviable position of having not one, but two elite wide receivers. In Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, the Broncos have two of the best wideouts in the league. For both players, however, the past two seasons has seen their productivity take a hit. Still, they both earned Pro Bowl nods in 2016. With a new offensive scheme better-suited to highlight their skills, both Thomas and Sanders should be poised to put up big numbers. With old offensive coordinator...

Round 2: Stakes high as Broncos quarterbacks (again) vie for starting job

A week before rookies were to report for Broncos training camp, general manager John Elway was on a golf course at Lake Tahoe for the American Century Championship, where he’s been a regular for years. It was one of his final getaways before football resumed at Dove Valley and focus shifted back to the Broncos. But even at Lake Tahoe, Elway couldn’t escape the questioning. Before he hit the green, he was asked about his quarterbacks. On the green, he was asked about his quarterbacks. As...

Kiszla: John Elway? An underdog? Now there’s a role No. 7 might have hard time embracing.

The No. 1 rule is the same, whether the game is football, cars or steaks. Whatever John Elway wants, he gets. And Elway is in the business of winning. But as Elway goes to training camp for the 23rd time with the Broncos, it is anything except business as usual. His starting quarterback is a mystery. His new head coach is unproven. And his contract situation is unsettled. In Denver, the mentality is always Super Bowl or bust. Maybe it’s time for an attitude adjustment. Peyton Manning is...

John Elway No. 1 on Tony Dungy’s list of QBs since 1978

Steve Atwater also was hired as a fan ambassador and an analyst by the Broncos, which is awesome!

Good morning, Broncos Country!

Tony Dungy may have just become the most popular man in this fan base.

The former Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach was part of a panel that ranked the top 10 quarterbacks since 1978 (more on the group who selected the countdown and approach below). Atop Dungy’s list is John Elway. When people put these together, the former Denver Broncos...

Devontae Booker all smiles at Smile Generation’s Orange & Blue Bowling Bash

AFC West Position Rankings: Tight Ends

We continue our AFC West position ranking analysis by focusing on the tight end corps in the division.

A tight end is a quarterback’s best friend — whether it’s acting as a safety valve on third downs, a threat in the red zone or being an chess piece in an offense’s aerial assault, they are an interesting dynamic that can do much for a team’s offense.

In today’s modern NFL landscape, they are seeing expanded roles in the passing game that are have reached unprecedented territory....

A healthy Matt Paradis deserves a long-term contract with the Broncos

One of the most consistent players on the Broncos roster has been, surprisingly, a player on the offensive line. While the offensive line as a whole has faced criticism from both fans and media members, everyone can agree that the Broncos have a special player in center Matt Paradis. Paradis, a 2014 sixth-round pick, is entering his fourth year for the Broncos. Since being promoted from the Broncos’ practice squad in 2015, he has started all 16 games for the Broncos in back-to-back...

Pro Football Focus ranks the Broncos front seven seventh-best in NFL

Thank you, Von Miller. The Denver Broncos still have a lot of questions to answer, though.

The Denver Broncos had the most feared front seven in the NFL just two seasons ago, but with the loss of Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan teams found plenty of room to run in 2016. That is likely the primary reason why the Broncos front seven went from first on PFF’s front seven list to seventh.

7. Denver Broncos

Von Miller is as effective as any at getting to the quarterback, and he has graded at...
