As you know, Broncos Camp will kick off in less of a week. And a competive Camp it will be for sure. But, what will emerge will be the a very good team that will have an offense that somewhat better than last years if our Starting QB makes very few mistakes, our Running game is solid behind an improved OL and our Defense gels into one of the best D’s the game has ever had. And our Special Teams performing very well. And if this happens, the Broncos should be able to compete very well for another Super Bowl. The Division will be more difficult to win this season, but I still believe the Broncos roster is still the strongest one in the Division and maybe the whole NFL. So get ready for a great Camp and Go, Go Broncos to provide Broncos Country with another Memorable Season!!!
The 3-4 roster I picked going into Camp:
QB Mark Sanchex
RB C.J. Anderson
Juwann Thompson RB/FB
Andy Janocvich FB
TE Vernon Green
WR Demaryius Thomas
LT Russell Okung
LG Max Garcia
C Matt Paradis
RG Tai Sambratld
RT Donald Stephenson
NT Syvester Williams
DE Kenny Anunike
OLB Van Miller
ILB Brandon Marshall
CB Chris Harris
S Darren Sterwart
P Riley Dixon
K Brandon McManus
LS Nathan Theus
And of course, this roster will have competers that someone could impress and make the team. And with the Broncos success with undrasted Free Agents over the years,someone of them could emerge and make the team. So Go, Go Broncos, work hard in Camp. Broncos Country is fully in back of this team and looking forward to an exciting and awesome season!!!
Now that Von Miller has gotten paid, there’s another Bronco that wants to see some money in the near future. That player is Emmanuel Sanders, who told TMZ that hopefully he’s next to collect that cash.
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has a message for John Elway — SHOW ME THE MONEY, TOO!!!!
This video is awesome … Sanders was leaving Bootsy Bellows nightclub in L.A. (sportin’ some very expensive jewelry) when we asked what he thought of his teammate Von Miller signing that MASSIVE $115 million contract!
“BIG MONEEEYYYY … I LIKE IT,” Sanders enthusiastically said while flashing a wad of cash … “Hopefully, I’m next!”
The 29-year-old is reportedly next in line to sign a big contract with Denver — and could fetch somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 MIL per season.
GET THAT MONEY!!!
The agent for Von Miller requested permission to seek a trade after the Bronocos made their final contract offer on July 7th, Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reports.
Whether the trade suggestion was a negotiating tactic or serious threat, Elway didn’t blink. He told Joby Branion, Miller’s agent, the Broncos would not be trading Miller and the team’s offer stood as is.
Six days after the trade option was communicated, the Broncos and Miller had reached the Friday deadline to get a multiyear contract done.
The final six-year, $114.5 million deal was structured in a way so that Miller had a solid commitment of four years for $78.5 million, or $19.625 million a year. There would be no relocation hassles, no new defensive system to learn. He would not have to leave his locker room buddies.
All the worry about Von Miller not being in camp can now be put to rest, as the Broncos and Super Bowl MVP have come to a deal.
Miller and the Broncos agreed today to a deal for six-years at $114.5 million. The deal that includes a record $70 million dollars guaranteed.
The deal was confirmed by Miller’s twitter when he tweeted out “FOR LIFE” with a picture of himself in a Broncos jersey on Friday.
Miller had been stating all along he wouldn’t sign the franchise tag he was given, and that he wouldn’t be coming to training camp unless he got the deal he had been looking for.
Things went so far as Miller not speaking with Broncos officials for nearly a month after details of a previous offer including approximately $40 million guaranteed were leaked.
The 27-year-old put up 11 sacks and four forced fumbles last season, and was the driving force of the Broncos D during their Super Bowl win over the Carolina Panthers.
As you know, the contract status of Von Miller had dominated Broncos news for a good while. Looks like today, maybe even as I am writing this,he will sign a blockbuster 114M 6 year contract, with 70M solidy guaranteed. It would make him the highest paid player in the NFL, outside of one recenty signed QB in Indy. Now, the attention shifts to Emmanuel Sanders, the remaining big time Bronco who can be signed now or he can bet on himself to play this season and sign next year as a free agent. The Broncos would be better off to conclude it now depending on cap room or gamble that they will be able to sign him after the season or possibly during the season. He is a critical signing, but we will have to wait and see what happens there. They are in pretty good shape physically approaching Camp, especially recieving the news that high motor Adam Gotsis will be available for camp. He is the DL out of Georgia Tech that Bill Kollar is so high on and certainly will enhance that group.
Mark Sanchez is leading the three QB group, with Trevor Sieman close on his heels, with Paxton Lynch developing well too, but lagging those two. He has all the tools and ability and needs to catch up primarily in the playbook. By preseason, we will get a better idea of his chances to play this season. But if he gets more comfortable by the seasons start, at worst, if Sanchez, who will probably initially start, gets hurt, turning the reins over to one of the others wouldnt be too bad. Either Sieman or Lynch could fit relatively well in a system that places no great stress on QB play, as most passes will be thrown outside the pocket, plus keep mental mistakes to a bare minimum. They threw a little more than they ran last season, but this season, with Kubiacks system in its second year, they will probably run a little more than pass it. More of a ball control, move the chains kind of offense. And with the superior Defense that we will enjoy again will give them more opportunities in shorter fields with three and outs.
So, pretty much a team similar to last years. But with an improved O Line and a solid set of recievers and RBs, we actually could have a decent offense this year. Paired with that Outstanding Defense we have, should have a good chance to take the Division again and once again be a contender for a Super Bowl. Go, Go, Broncos and get ready for Camp on the 28th, because Broncos Country is chomping at the bit to see how the 2016 Denver Broncos perform this season!!!
Broncos tight end Virgil Green could “shatter” his career highs in every receiving category in 2016 according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com.
It will not take much to “shatter” Green’s career high as the 27-year-old has never had more than 12 catches in a single season in his five years in Denver. Mason’s point seems to be that the Broncos plan to give Green every opportunity to win the No.1 tight end job. Green no longer has to compete with the likes of Julius Thomas, Vernon Davis, or Owen Daniels for touches but it should be noted that he has been given chances to earn a bigger role in the passing game before in his career and has not yet taken advantage. He has, however, developed into probably the premier blocker at his position in the NFL.
Green will likely have a secure place on the Broncos roster for several more seasons due to his blocking ability but it seems unlikely that he will become a receiving phenom at this point in his career. Having said that, who would have predicted the breakout season of Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge at age 30 in 2015? Stranger things have happened but Jeff Heuerman is still a better bet to lead the Broncos’ tight ends in targets in 2016.
While many Broncos observers are dismissing Trevor Siemian’s chances of starting at quarterback, the coaching staff is not, Andrew Mason of team’s official website reports.
Probably the biggest reason he gets dismissed by some is his relatively unheralded status. He split time at quarterback at Northwestern, was coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament, completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes in college. All of those were typical characteristics of a “project” quarterback.
His draft status as a seventh-round pick also leads to the “no respect” angle in the eyes of some. The bottom line is that successful seventh-round QBs are the exception and not the rule, particularly in the last decade. The 15 quarterbacks drafted in the seventh round from 2006-15 include just six who threw passes in the regular season — and just two who threw more than 40 career passes: Tyler Thigpen (509 career passes) and Matt Flynn (357 career passes).
So from the raw numbers, the odds were against Siemian when he was drafted.
But he’s made it to the second year; every day he remains with the Broncos, his chances of a long career increase. He showed promise last year in the preseason, particularly in terms of his poise and command; he showed the intangibles of an NFL quarterback. His accuracy has improved; based on practice, he has crossed that 60-percent threshold that is now a baseline for being an NFL passer.
He has a legitimate shot now, whether observers want to believe that or not.
