Latest happenings.

  Broncos are likely to pick up Von Miller’s 5th year option. It would be a transition year option and needs to be done by early May before the NFL draft. With the increased salary cap it makes sense and would be a reasonable playing rate for Miller, who they feel will be able to make significant contributions and be a cornerstone of the Bronco defense. He also has to work hard to get back in the good graces of the team, organization and fans. His recovery from ACL surgery is well ahead of schedule and has lost the added weight from last season. He ended up trading bulk for quickness, so I hope he can get back to the Von Miller we all know he can be. And we are all pulling for him for sure!
    At the League Meetings, approved rules changes include raising the goal uprights 5 feet to get a better handle on high kicks on field goals. The clock on sacks will continue to run after the sack outside of the two minute warnings. They are also going to experiment with extra points from the 20 yard line in preseason games, which is equivilent to a 37 yard field goal. Also fumble recoveries will be reviewable. Known as the Novorro Bowman on his recovery in the 49ers late season game with Seattle in which he clearly had recovered a Seahawk fumble, but the ball was mistakely  ruled dead and led to resulteding in the Seahawks scoring a touchdown and winning the game.
  Then after free agency was quiet for a few days, they signed Chris Harris when he signed his tender. It is only for this year but I expect the Broncos to sign him to a multiyear contract during this season. They also signed Will Montgomery who has started as the Redskins Center the last three seasons. He can also play left guard. At worst, depth or starting at guard in the gap left by the departure of Zane Beadles. Good solid signing and could end up preventing the musical chairs possibility they were facing.
  Also, last, but not least the Broncos 2014 season schedule will be released in Mid-April on a Tuesday, so April 15th or April 22nd are the best possibilities.  After that in early May is the 2014 NFL draft. So now the last need is ILB, so look for a first round or second round pick of that position. So they will have 6 picks for best player available. Not a bad place to be for the Broncos. Our defense has already been upgraded significantly in free agency and we are also looking at the return of several defensive talented players on that side of the ball. So look for Bronco selections of offensive linemen, wide reciever and possibly running back. On defense, they will be generally picking for depth at LB, CB or Safety. Should be a very interesting draft. John Elway did super in free agency again and hopefully we’ll see a likeswise  result from the draft. Go Elway and the Broncos and do a bangup job at the draft!!!
