Chase Vaughn’s journey to the NFL took him through two small Colorado colleges and four professional football leagues before he called in sick from his hospital job to covertly try out for the Denver Broncos.
For Owen Daniels, this is heaven. His quarterback is Peyton Manning. His coach is Gary Kubiak. And he’s living in Colorado.
Although he won’t have to deal with AARP solicitations for another decade, Peyton Manning is certainly more of a graybeard quarterback than a greenhorn at age 39.
During portions of the Denver Broncos practice the team blares music. Usually it’s hard rock or hip-hop, but on Tuesday the playlist was more like easy-listening, and C.J. Anderson thinks he knows where it came from.
Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson said the competition for the starting job is a “fun competition.” Fellow tailback Montee Ball might agree with that, but he’s taking it very seriously.
If Peyton Manning suffers an injury in the middle of the Broncos season like he did last year, things might play out differently this time around.
Losing offensive lineman Ryan Clady, the anchor of the offensive line, for the season to a torn ACL is devastating. But life goes on, and according to former Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey, it’s all just part of the game.
Brock Osweiler made the most of his opportunity, getting the bulk of the snaps at practice as he continued to digest coach Gary Kubiak’s run-oriented offense that is both newfangled and old-fashioned.
When ranking the most “irreplaceable” players on the team, it is a combination of what they bring to the team, but also who is behind them.
With Ryan Clady gone for the foreseeable future, the Broncos will now be relying on four new linemen to keep Manning safe.
