» Broncos waive TE Richard Gordon

May 04, 2016 - 3:28 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. ó The Broncos waived tight end Richard Gordon, the team announced Wednesday.

The six-year veteran was originally signed on Oct. 14, 2015 to bolster Denver's depth at tight end. He was active for five games and played five total snaps (one on offense, four on special teams) in the team's Week 8 matchup against the Packers. Gordon was waived Dec. 1 when the Broncos needed to upgrade their safety depth after multiple injuries. He was later re-signed following the end of the postseason.

» Renck: Broncos NOT picking up 5th year option on Sylvester Williams

May 02, 2016 - 2:13 PM - by VonDoom
Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 1m1 minute ago

According to #NFL source, #Broncos are not exercising 5th year option on Sly Williams

Troy Renck ‏@TroyRenck 33s33 seconds ago

Understand #Broncos pleased w Sly Williams' progress last year. But nose tackles market has shifted last few years, making 2017 cap # high

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 59s60 seconds ago

The #Broncos were happy w/ Sly's production last season, but that $6.75M cap figure is a rather large # for a nose tackle and 2-down player.

Cameron Wolfe ‏@CameronWolfe 5s6 seconds ago

Sly could still re-sign for a lesser # if he wants or test free agency after 2016 season.

» Apparently Denver wants to run the ball or something

May 02, 2016 - 10:03 AM - by G_Money
Denver was 17th in rushing attempts and 17th in yards last year, with 1718 total. That doesn't sound bad until you realize that Denver was TRYING to run the ball, in fact built their offense around rushing, and still couldn't be consistent enough to be a chain-moving offense. They had 85 rushing first downs. The 1997 Broncos had 138, and 135 in 1998 as well. The Houston Texans in Kubiak's playoff years had 114 and 131.

For better or worse, Kubiak wants to run other teams to death. For this team, that's going to be better - nobody wants Sanchez or Lynch having to carry the offense around. The team still threw for almost 4000 yards and ranked higher in passing yards and attempts than in rushing. The passing game is going to have to be there, but the rushing attack in a Kubiak offense needs to carry the water as a top-5 unit, and Denver was nowhere close last year.

Injuries were part of the problem, but shoddy play was definitely another. Denver was 17th in adjusted line yards, and 23rd when it came to getting stuffed in short yardage or tackled behind the line of scrimmage. Some of that was running into a stacked box because Manning couldn't take the top off the defense any more and teams wanted to make Oz feel the pressure as a player with almost no playing time before this year.

Well we're still going to be running into a stacked box this year with Sanchez, and Lynch - whenever he sees the field - is still going to be green as pistachio ice cream. That problem won't change for a minute, so the Broncos need to be able to move people and make holes anyway.

Hello free agency! I see we had seen enough of our woeful tackle situation that we replaced both tackles (even though we have one coming back from injury in Sambrailo). Sambrailo is supposed to fight for the right... [Read More]

» Replacing Malik Jackson?

May 02, 2016 - 3:29 AM - by Broncoknight30
He was far more valuable imo to the defense than many think. To me the key was the push from the middle that made the pocket uncomfortable for every QB they faced. Especially in the play off run. I know I am not Einstein with that observation, but I do think Malik along with Wolfe were far more valuable than many think. Especially Jackson. Without a pocket to step into, the outside guys do not just run by. Meaning, their pursuit becomes that much more effective.

Here is an example of that.




I know in this hard cap era, it is literally impossible to sign EVERYONE. I guess I am a little concerned over losing that effectiveness that Jackson provided.

» Sundays with Sacco: Elway's transformation retains his drive

May 01, 2016 - 9:45 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
A few days ago, I asked the question, "What will Elway do?" as part of the theme of my column on how much weight rests on his decisions.

We know now that John moved up in the draft, as he did a year ago to draft Shane Ray out of Missouri, this time making a dramatic move to select Paxton Lynch, quarterback from the University of Memphis.

There is just no end to the poker-playing ability of John Elway as General Manager.

He is stone cold on behalf of the Broncos, never tipping his hand for a second.

I, for one, am not surprised, I got to watch him every day for 16 years as the greatest quarterback of his generation (and of many others), and not many NFL teams have been led by competitors as fierce as Elway.

When he reached up in the draft to take Lynch, I was reminded once again not just of his leadership and player evaluation acumen, but of the fact that the NFL is a quarterback's league, and it is always good to have a top one.

Yes, it is a quarterback's league.

» I'm Just Gonna Say It

Apr 30, 2016 - 9:27 PM - by spikerman
I think Sanchez will be ok this year. I think he'll give the Broncos more than they got from the position last year. Over the past couple of weeks I've warmed to the idea of him starting this year. I was on the Kap bandwagon, but then I realized that I do not want a guy who would rather sit on the bench to collect more money than potentially start for the defending champs. I prefer a competitor. /rant

» No Joy For The Scoobois

Apr 30, 2016 - 6:05 PM - by OrangeHoof
A month or two ago during the height of Scoobymania(tm), the Wise Guys here assured me that Scooby Wright was "the best LB in the draft", that we'd better pick him in the third round like their mocks urged or we'd miss out.

I made a nothing-bet statement (meaning nothing was wagered) that Alex Collins (RB, Arkansas) would be drafted before Wright. I said just wait until the actual draft.

Final Results:
Alex Collins, Compensation Pick #171 to Seattle in the fifth round.
Scooby Wright, Compensation Pick #250 to Cleveland in the seventh round.

Wright was the 14th and final player chosen by his own club, just three players from the end of the 2016 draft.

Either none of the 32 teams recognized the "best linebacker in the draft" as the Scoobois insisted or some folks here just fell in love with a name instead of a player.

» 2016 Broncos Draft Picks Analysis

Apr 30, 2016 - 2:59 PM - by Northman
http://espn.go.com/blog/denver-bronc...for-every-pick

Round 1, Pick No. 26: Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis | Highlights

My take: At 6-foot-6, 244 pounds, Lynch is exactly the type of big-framed quarterback Elway likes. It was one of the reasons the team selected 6-foot-7 Brock Osweiler in the second round of the 2012 draft.

Lynch is likely not ready to play as a rookie. But, the Broncos donít need him to play and can give Lynch the expected time needed to acclimate himself into the league. Lynch didnít play under center all that much in his career with Memphis and worked in a no-huddle attack that didnít ask him to throw the ball down the field very often.

Heíll need to adjust to the Broncosí scheme, but he has the mobility to eventually run the teamís play-action attack. The Broncos also believe Lynch has the kind of

» Justin Simmons FS Boston College

Apr 30, 2016 - 7:51 AM - by Dapper Dan
Boston College had the number ONE defense in college football last year. And we got one of their best players. This guy has played CB. He's played Safety. He has Intercrptions. He has Forced Fumbles. He has Fumble recoveries. He has a ton of tackles. He could be our next Darian Stewart. All aboard the hype train.

» Adam Gotsis.....youre a Denver Bronco.

Apr 30, 2016 - 4:21 AM - by WARHORSE
While many didnt think this pick was warranted this high, McKay did.......

2. Denver Broncos:Adam Gotsis, DE, Georgia Tech (No. 63 pick):
No joke: I remember watching Gotsis on tape and thinking This might be Malik Jackson. Seems as if the Broncos are hoping Gotsis can help replace Jackson on the D-line. Gotsis is a perfect fit for Wade Phillips' system. He can get penetration when lining up inside and also play 5-technique DE. Great pick.

Not sure thats good news.......but I like the guy.

Elway is BOSS.
