NFL DRAFT: This is the class of the (flawed) quarterback

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

We've been hearing it for months: The 2018 NFL draft is all about the quarterback. The quarterback conundrum is more like it. "You can go around a room and probably get four or five different opinions on how they should be stacked." That's a quote from John Elway, Denver Broncos general manager and headliner of the pre-eminent 1983 QB class that featured six first-round selections and produced three Hall of Famers. There's no consensus top QB this year like there was with Andrew Luck or Cam Newton a few years ago. Every one of this year's "Big Four" — USC's Sam Darnold , Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield , Wyoming's Josh Allen and UCLA's Josh Rosen — can find their names atop somebody's mock draft this

John Elway on Baker Mayfield: He’s overcome the size issue

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Broncos President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said the team still is evaluating the top four quarterbacks, hoping to narrow it to two.

Elway: last year’s draft class has to step up in 2018

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

''Well, we're hoping they can help us this year,'' Elway said Thursday. A half dozen of Elway's 2017 draft picks either missed their entire rookie season or played so sparingly that they remain virtual unknowns. Only first-round pick Garrett Bolles had much of an impact, but he was one of the most penalized players in the league and was openly mocked in the locker room by several veterans after the tough-talking left tackle was bowled over by Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan on Christmas Eve, which they had warned him would happen if he didn't fix his poor technique.

A poll of agents found that Washington Redskins President Bruce Allen is the least trusted executive in the NFL, while the Cincinnati Bengals are the least prepared team for contract negotiations. In addition to the major trust problem agents have with Allen and the Redskins, they named Mike Tannenbaum, executive vice president of the Miami Dolphins, to be the second least trustworthy executive, followed by Denver Broncos general manager John Elway and Bengals owner Mike Brown.

Jason Garrett ripped “soft” Cowboys offense after Week Two loss at Denver

Broncos G.M. John Elway made waves during the 2017 season for publicly calling his team soft. Early in the year, Elway’s Broncos prompted the coach of another team to privately make the same assessment about his own team. “The whole thing was soft,” coach Jason Garrett tells his offense after a Week Two loss in Denver, during the opening episode of Amazon’s All or Nothing that focuses on last year’s Dallas Cowboys.

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller drew the ire of animals rights activists when he posted a photo of a hammerhead shark his caught while fishing to his instagram account. The photo sparked an investigation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to determine if any laws had been violated by Miller’s catch.

Report: Riley Dixon skipping Broncos workouts while in limbo

Monday, April 16th, 2018

While the Broncos have tried to find a trade partner for Dixon, it’s far more likely Denver will release Dixon when the potential options exhaust themselves. According to Mike Klis of 9News, Dixon has been advised to stay away from the team by his agent until it makes its final decision on his future.

Rams’ Donald no-shows for workouts; McVay not concerned

Monday, April 16th, 2018

For the second year in a row, Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald did not report for the start of the team's offseason conditioning program on Monday as he seeks a contract extension.

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Running back C.J. Anderson spent five seasons with the Broncos, and the Broncos officially have decided to move on. “Over the last five years, C.J. developed from an undrafted player into an important member of our team,” Broncos president of football operations/G.M.
