Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

CENTENNIAL, Colo. – Fans seeking a first-hand look at the Broncos’ quarterback competition and the team’s promised reboot are in luck.

Terrell Davis admits he thought Hall of Fame was just ‘not meant to be’

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- No reason to bite his tongue anymore. Terrell Davis admitted Wednesday he wondered if the Hall would ever call. All those winters of pushing his nose up to the windows in Canton exacted a toll. "Yeah, there was a point. About the sixth or seventh year when I was just constantly making the semifinalist list, but there was no one talking about me, I thought maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.

Davis walked into football immortality in February. His case presented challenges because of his short term -- seven

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Of the 51 Denver Broncos players who responded, only one player asked to know the intent of the survey before answering the questionnaire. There’s a familiar refrain in NFL reporting that seems to crescendo whenever controversy of a non-football variety is introduced into the dialogue. “Well,” says the player, “the NFL locker room is the most diverse place on earth.” Players use it as a catch-all when asked by a reporter if another player’s politics or sexual orientation are a distraction.

The Broncos wrap up their offseason program this week and they’ve spent the last couple of months putting quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch through their paces, but the competition for the starting job hasn’t really gotten going yet. “It’s hard to get a true evaluation with these guys right now, because there’s much learning going on around those guys,” Joseph said, via ESPN.com.

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

The biggest offseason position battle in the NFL - the Denver Broncos quarterback sweepstakes featuring Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian - has been nothing but a tease.

How ‘Madden’ predicts Colin Kaepernick would perform on all 32 teams

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Let’s pretend Colin Kaepernick played for the Patriots. In an attempt to gauge the currently unsigned Kaepernick’s ability to lead an offense, here’s our non-scientific experiment: We placed Kaepernick on every single team in “Madden NFL 17,” replacing that club’s projected starter for the upcoming season. This experiment included a control simulation without Kaepernick involved. Thanks to EA Sports’ online community, the rosters were updated, including created players for the first four rounds’ worth of 2017 draft picks.
