» Von Miller, now handsomely paid, returns to lead Broncos’ title defense

Jul 23, 2016 - 1:39 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Still bleary eyed from celebrations hours earlier, Von Miller stood at a podium inside San Francisco’s Moscone Center the morning of Feb. 8 to receive an honor only nine other defensive players before him had earned. The moment was his and all about him, yet he tried to make it anything but.

After his signature “Howdy,” he rattled off the names of Broncos teammates who helped him through “the toughest of days” before quickly realizing he didn’t have time to name all 52. He thanked his mother. He praised general manager John Elway. He told of how happy he was to help defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and fellow linebacker DeMarcus Ware finally get a ring. He even thanked the media staring back at him.

Then he answered the question on everyone’s mind.
AND

But there also were Miller’s two-a-days and Brazilian jiu-jitsu workouts, and the stops at gyms across the country, from Miami to Hollywood, to maintain his conditioning. The few media interviews along the way carried the same tone and often the same message. Miller was optimistic. He knew it was a business. He was expecting a deal any day.

He was going to be a Bronco for life.

“Von, from the outset, wanted to stay in Denver,” Branion said. “I think as we went through the process, which was a lengthy one, he had to consider all of his options. So he certainly thought about them, because I made him do

» Inside Brandon McManus’s second life as a food blogger

Jul 22, 2016 - 5:23 PM - by aberdien

It’s been a big year for Denver kicker Brandon McManus. He played a major part in the Broncos’ Super Bowl win, connecting on all three of his field goal attempts. He got married. And, crucially, he blogged about the nigiri sushi at a Japanese gastropub in Denver called Izakaya Den, where he enjoyed the kanpachi’s “meaty, pale white flesh with a delicate taste” and the wild tai that was “firm yet flaky.”

For McManus, new to the food-blogging world in particular and to sushi in general, this was a transformative experience. The blogging, featuring the requisite photographs of about-to-be-consumed meals, was making him a bolder eater.

“I could never commit to raw fish,” McManus said in an interview with The Ringer. “But I had two appetizers, then got an entree, and it was one of the best meals of my life. To get to the tenderness of the raw fish was amazing.”

Like many athletes, McManus burns so many calories that he has to eat a lot. In the past, however, he never put that facet of his life to good use. So when he started eating at some of the best restaurants in his city, a sudden urge developed that even he can’t fully explain. “I don’t know what came over me,” he said. “I just decided to blog about it, and we just kind of rolled with it.”

» Broncos: Team gets feeling that Kubiak will roll with Sanchez to start and go from there

Jul 21, 2016 - 12:19 PM - by Northman
http://www.12up.com/posts/3493050-re...qb?a_aid=40607

Broncos defensive lineman Sylvester Williams appeared on ​Sirius XM NFL Radio and said that Kubiak has, "kind of let us know" that veteran Mark Sanchez would be leading the team come September.

"But I think, going into the camp, I think Coach Kub kind of let us know he's going to go with Mark and give Mark the opportunity to see what he can do and then go on from there."

The Broncos drafted their QB of the future in Paxton Lynch during the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but he needs some time to develop before taking over the starting role. there had been talk that Trevor Siemian would be given a chance to start, but it seems Sanchez will be given the reigns.


At least to start.

» Good news Emmanuel: Von's record contract gives Broncos more 2016 cap space

Jul 20, 2016 - 12:23 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
KUSA - Even while paying out the largest contract in franchise history, the Denver Broncos managed to pinch a few pennies on their 2016 budget.

In the funny math that is the NFL salary cap system, Von Miller’s six-year, $114.5 million contract lowered his 2016-season cap number.

As Miller sat on his exclusive franchise from March 1 until July 14 he was carrying a cap number of $14.26 number.

Although Miller’s new deal pays him $25.5 million in cash this year, his cap number for 2016 dropped to $11.4.

That’s a $2.86 million savings in cap space. Emmanuel Sanders, next man up.

How such a monstrous contract can reduced the Year One cap hit? Because signing bonuses are prorated. So while Miller will get $17 million in cash from a signing bonus this year, it counts only $3.4 million against the cap and for each of the next four seasons of his deal. (Although Miller’s contract is six years, signing bonuses can be prorated for no more than five years.)

The details of Miller’s contract were first reported last Friday by 9NEWS. There is one small change: Although Miller didn’t work out during this past offseason, he will collect a $500,000 workout bonus in March 2017. That workout bonus counts against his 2016 payout so Miller is on the books for $25.5 million in year one and $16.5 million in year two – instead of $25 million and $17 million.

» Whether QB or GM, unconventional Elway gets it done

Jul 18, 2016 - 8:14 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
KUSA - Put him in a grass-stained uniform or suit and tie and it’s the same guy.

He can go from hero on the field to executive in the front office and nothing changes.

The Von Miller negotiations were the latest example of how John Elway the Denver Broncos’ general manager is so much like Elway the quarterback.

As a star player, he fought with management (Dan Reeves). As management, he feuded with his star pass-rusher (Miller).

Elway the gunslinging quarterback was best when the play went off script. However many incompletes or mistakes were made during the game, Elway had a way of pulling out victory in the end.

He retired as the NFL’s winningest quarterback thanks to a record 47 late-game comebacks.

In his five years as a GM, Elway has demonstrated the same flair for the dramatic. He can occasionally become brutally candid as he engaged in his share of contract squawks with the likes of Miller, Elvis Dumervil, Ryan Clady, Brock Osweiler and Colin Kaepernick.

Yet, the Broncos’ record in Elway’s five years includes this: AFC West title, AFC West title, AFC West title, AFC West title, AFC West title.

» DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib on the mend as they attend T.J. Ward's charity golf outing

Jul 18, 2016 - 4:27 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
AURORA, Colo. -- Neither DeMarcus Ware nor Aqib Talib had to go far to make it to T.J. Ward's golf tournament at the Blackstone Country Club, just 13 miles away from the UCHealth Training Center.

Unlike many of their teammates, Ware and Talib didn't leave the Denver area for multiple weeks. They've been regulars at Dove Valley, rehabilitating from their injuries.

"Me and Aqib, we've become best friends, because I've been in there with him," said Ware, who has received treatment for a back problem that sidelined him for all of the Broncos' organized team activities in May and June.

"I'm feeling really good," Ware said. "I've just been in treatment and stuff for my back. Everything's going well with that. I'm just getting ready for training camp."

» How NFL trains officials to call catch rule: If in doubt, incomplete

Jul 18, 2016 - 1:41 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
DALLAS -- Dean Blandino paused and lowered his voice. As he watched players run by on the video screen, the NFL's vice president of officiating smiled.

"It's so easy," he said, "when they hold on to the ball."

Yes. Yes it is. If players did it all the time, of course, debate over the NFL's vexing catch rule would be moot. The rule exists to adjudicate instances when the ball squirts free before possession is obvious. And though its substance remains unchanged in 2016, Blandino carved out a portion of his annual officiating clinic to demystify its intent and reinforce that he will support calls reflective of its spirit, even when they spark public controversy.

"The biggest thing is we all have to be on the same page," Blandino told a ballroom packed with all of the NFL's 124 game officials. "The rule is a good rule."

Many fans and neutral observers seem to have made up their minds to oppose that sentiment, minimizing any impact of the league's public crusade to explain it. But in a separate interview on Friday, Blandino reported significant offseason progress with an arguably more important group: NFL coaches. On the opening day of the clinic, Blandino provided a glimpse of how he is selling the rule around the league, as well as the way he is instructing officials to call it.

» NFL likely to insert data chips into game balls in preseason, Thursdays

Jul 18, 2016 - 10:36 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The NFL is finalizing plans to insert custom-made data chips into the game balls used in the 2016 preseason and Thursday night regular-season games, a league source said Sunday night.

The data would be used for research that could spark significant changes in officiating, kicking and other areas as soon as the 2017 season.

The Toronto Sun reported earlier Sunday that the league would use chips in K-balls to help determine the potential impact of narrowing the goalposts sometime in the future.

The data will tell the league how close each kick comes to the uprights and thus help project how many additional kicks would be missed if the uprights were closer together.

» Mason's Mailbag: Elway, Broncos still in good cap shape for future

Jul 18, 2016 - 10:27 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
With the re-signing of players like Von Miller and Brandon Marshall, how can we re-sign people like Emmanuel Sanders and Darian Stewart with our salary cap being so low?

-- Caleb Rabon

First, it's not low.

According to overthecap.com, the Broncos have $39.379 million in salary-cap space for 2017 with a projected cap of $166 million (and that includes the commitment if they pick up the option on left tackle Russell Okung). That gives them more cap space than 18 other teams are projected to have right now. So if they want both Sanders and Stewart, there is room.

It will be crucial for the Broncos to hit on as many draft picks and other young acquisitions as possible so they don't need to gobble up what is left of the cap space to fill holes that are not yet projected.

» Kapri Bibbs made it out of Chicago and it made him

Jul 17, 2016 - 5:47 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
From feasting on a platter of fried chicken wings and fries drenched in hot sauce at Harold’s Chicken Shack on the South Side, to taking a weekend trip to the Navy Pier on the North Side, a lot of times the good of Chicago outweighs the bad.

The grand allure of the towering skyscrapers and iconic presence of Wrigley Field establish the city’s personality. Natives wear the pride of the Windy City on their chest like a medal of honor.

But it is one of America’s deadliest cities. According to the Chicago Tribune, there had been 2,110 shooting victims in Chicago in 2016, through July 14. There were more than 440 in June alone.

A 3-year-old was shot and paralyzed on Father’s Day riding in the car with his dad. A week later, a 4-year-old was shot in the jaw.

Deadly, devastating and disgusting as it is at times to Broncos running back Kapri Bibbs, Chicago is home. Not too long ago, he went to a family reunion with cousins ages 12 to 14, each with their own glock or .44 caliber magnum. There was nothing he could do.

“Everyone is a product of their environment. You can’t escape that,” Bibbs said. “You gotta be a certain way to survive because it is survival of the fittest.”

There are two sides to Bibbs, both of which can be attributed to his family and city: one part fiery, second part jokester.

Bibbs loves Chicago, but at the first opportunity he moved far away.

“We slept like sardines”

Everyone and their mother knows it is 53 days until the Opening game, but when does training camp start?

Also, what is your favorite unusually named Bronco?

I always enjoyed Lelo Lang. It rolls right off the tongue. Also his wikipedia page is incredibly barren. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le-Lo_Lang

» Roby, Stewart top lists of Denver Broncos underrated players

Jul 14, 2016 - 10:48 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
Everything about the future for the Denver Broncos is a guessing game. It's easier to find clarity by looking in the past. Last season the Denver Broncos won a Super Bowl and the entire team got some pretty amazing rings. But not every player got the media or fan attention that players such as Peyton Manning or Von Miller received.

ESPN recently named their picks for each NFL team's most underrated player. The Broncos player named in this article was cornerback Bradley Roby.

"Denver's nickel corner would be starting for a lot of teams. Last season, he finished in the top 30 in both of our cornerback charting stats (yards per pass and success rate.) Roby is a gambler, which leaved him open to allowing big plays. But he also makes his fair share of big plays. His forced fumble in the playoffs against the Steelers might have saved the Broncos' season."

The Afternoon Drive also took up this topic this week. They agreed with the Roby choice and added safety Darian Stewart and center Matt Paradis to their list.
