ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Ė The Broncos still have fond memories of Santa Clara, California.

Just over a year ago, Denver won Super Bowl 50 in Leviís Stadium with a 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

So, theyíre going back.

For the third year in a row, the Broncos will partner with the San Francisco 49ers for joint preseason practices. Unlike the previous two seasons, however, the Broncos will head to Santa Clara to practice in the days ahead of their preseason contest with the Niners.

The Broncos hosted the Niners at UCHealth Training Center in 2015 and 2016. The Houston Texans visited for the same purpose in 2014.

In 2016, the Broncos practiced against the Niners on Wednesday and Thursday, had the day off Friday and played San Francisco on Saturday evening.

The specific dates of this yearís practices and game have yet to be set.

This year will represent a change for the Broncos, though. Denver hasnít traveled to an opposing teamís facility for joint preseason practices since the team went to Dallas in 2007.

That stinks. It reduces the opportunities for us to go to training camp practices and get some inside training camp reports. It's also practice against one of the worst teams in the league.

Nothing like getting ready for the season by practicing against one of the worst teams in the league. They must be really trying to get Trevor or Paxton a chance to show off early. Facing our own defense daily isn't going to ever be a good showcase for many so I understand practicing vs a team like the niners.

Since the Broncos play SF there in preseason, it makes sense to go there a couple of days early, and practice against SF.

Its always a good thing for teams to get to practice against someone else in preseason.

Are we down to complaining about the quality of the practice team? Its not boxing where sparring partners are a big deal.

Yeah, I'm not sure why people are complaining about practicing against a bad team. We practiced with them last year when the game was in Denver, so now it's just the reverse. Plus Elway and Lynch are buddies, so that makes sense as well. And after weeks of practicing against each other, I know the team always wants to get to hit someone else.

Better to have players hit other team than each other

The worst team in the league is still an NFL team and this is a good thing.

They do this instead of training camp at Northern Colorado?

No worse than practicing against UFA camp fodder
