New Orleans tough: How Carlos Henderson’s past has him prepared to be a future Broncos star

The Broncos haven’t had a padded practice yet this spring, which is a disappointment to rookie Carlos Henderson. Denver’s third-round draft pick wants that “welcome to the NFL” hit. He wants to run over somebody. Most wide receivers avoid contact, preferring to use speed and elusiveness to excel. Henderson plays more like a running back. As the NFL evolves, those positions blend together. In an era with Tyreek Hill, Ty Montgomery and now Christian McCaffrey, players who excel at...

The Broncos’ rookie wideouts “can fly” on the field, but they need to fly elsewhere first

  ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have added some serious weapons to their arsenal on offense. Size, speed, athleticism, the team has added all of the above in the offseason with multiple additions and two of the most intriguing new pieces came in the draft and now sit in the wide receiver room: Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie. “They can fly,” the team’s most tenured player, Demaryius Thomas, said on Thursday afternoon. Yes, while they may be undersized—McKenzie at 5-8...

Von Miller’s path to becoming an all-time great

Von Miller wants to be considered one of the greatest players of all time. He told ESPN exactly that earlier this week as the Broncos wrapped up the first three days of OTA practices for the 2017 season. It’s a lofty ambition, no doubt, but he has plenty of motivation and examples to draw from, having worked alongside three guys who are in the “GOAT” conversation at their respective positions. “I want to be the best player, no question. I want to be a GOAT-type [greatest of all...

Carlos Henderson signs contract a day after making plays all over the practice field

The Denver Broncos might have found a special player in Carlos Henderson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with third-round pick Carlos Henderson on Friday with a four-year deal worth around $3.3M with a signing bonus of $800k. The deal comes a day after Henderson lit up the practice field on OTA’s.

Coming off a season with Louisiana Tech where he hauled in 82 catches for over 1500 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also added two rushing touchdowns to...

Broncos 2017 roster: Wide receiver Marlon Brown

Marlon Brown can play, but the Denver Broncos might have too much talent at the wide receiver position for him to make the final cut.

Name: Marlon Brown
Position: WR
Height: 6'5" Weight: 214
Age: 26 Experience: 5
College: Georgia

Marlon Brown is a guy the Denver Broncos brought in last season having worked under Gary Kubiak’s system with the Baltimore Ravens. His best season came in his rookie season when he started 12 games, snagging 49 receptions for 524 yards and seven touchdowns.

Three unsigned free agents who can still help the Broncos

The beginning of free agency is always exciting, with big name players making high-profile moves to other teams. In truth though, free agency never comes to a complete stop. Clubs are always kicking the tires on players who could potentially help them out down the road. Just because a player isn’t scooped up at the start of free agency, doesn’t mean that they can’t latch on somewhere down the line and be a contributor for a ball club. The Denver Broncos did their part in signing...

Denver Broncos: Preview of weeks 9-17 of the 2017-2018 season

After previewing the first half of the 2017-2018 season, the vast majority of people felt that the Broncos would enter the second half of the season with six or seven wins. It’s a very possible result mainly because Denver plays four of its first seven games at home plus they are returning a defense that is still playing at a championship level. The second half of the season will not get any easier for first year head coach, Vance Joseph and the Broncos. The team will play five of their...

Broncos finalize rookie contracts

  Nearly a month after he was drafted, the Denver Broncos agreed to terms with third-round pick Carlos Henderson on a four-year deal on Friday. Henderson was the last member of Denver’s 2017 draft class left without a contract. The deal is worth $3.33 million, including an $818,000 signing bonus. The 5-foot-11 wide receiver forced 48 missed tackles last season as a redshirt junior at Louisiana Tech, 26 more than any other FBS player. In 13 games, Henderson scored 23 total touchdowns...

Shane Ray wants to do backflip celebrations in 2017

The caveat? He needs to score touchdowns. We support this goal!

With the new NFL rules on touchdown celebrations, Shane Ray has a specific one in mind for 2017. Mostly because all of the really fun ones are still banned, because the NFL overlords are still tepid over making the sport fun again.

Before the NFL's rule changes, we asked @StingRay56 his craziest TD celebrations.

Adam Gotsis welcomes competition from Broncos’ additions

The transition into his sophomore season has been full of changes for Broncos defensive lineman Adam Gotsis. In addition to the mental adjustments that Gotsis has seen in himself and the team, his physical improvements are also evident. After a season-ending knee injury in his senior season at Georgia Tech, Gotsis came into his rookie season with a steep hill to climb. That limited him to 14 total tackles on the year, and left the Broncos looking for help on the defensive line. Gotsis...

Broncos own one of highest draft pick retention rates in NFL

Few teams draft as well as the Denver Broncos have since John Elway took over the team in 2011.

A really interesting team came out yesterday that highlighted teams that draft well and teams that don’t draft well. The proof is in how teams retain their “homegrown talent” year after year.

Since 2011, the Denver Broncos are fifth best in the NFL at retaining draft picks with exactly 50% of their draft picks still on the roster heading into the 2017 season. If you look at just 2014-16, the...

2017 Broncos opponent preview Week 3: Buffalo Bills

The Denver Broncos are the better team on paper over the Buffalo Bills.

In Week 3 of the 2017 regular season, the Denver Broncos will travel to upstate New York to face the Buffalo Bills. Like the Broncos, the Bills also have a new head coach and coaching staff. Unlike the Broncos, the Bills have severe talent problems all over the field.

Being a home game, this is a matchup the Broncos really do need to win. However, it being a non-conference game makes it less relevant than most of their...

Rookie Carlos Henderson is proving his loyalty to the Broncos

For the past two seasons, the Denver Broncos offense has had a difficult time generating points. Just four years removed from posting record-breaking numbers in scoring, the Denver offense went from juggernaut to liability. There are a number of possible culprits, but more importantly there is a potential solution who is already turning heads at UCHealth Training Center . The loss of a Hall of Fame quarterback like Peyton Manning was going to be felt, and the Broncos are still dealing with...
