John Elway has been down this lonely road before.
Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey usually keeps pretty quiet when it comes to talking about how good the team is, but now he says the Broncos have the “potential” to be Super Bowl champions.
Take less money, gain more weight. Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson heard each of those messages from the Broncos in the offseason and complied with both. The result has been one of the strongest seasons in his seven-year NFL career.
Defensive tackle Justin Bannan said he’s very happy to have his good friend D.J. Williams back on the team after he served two suspensions.
Peyton Manning’s arrival alone would have made John Elway’s second year as boss of the Denver Broncos a success.
The Broncos have racked up $134,000 in fines already this season for crossing the line on both tackles and talk, and they’ve watched three of their players get served with suspension letters from the league office.
The Denver Broncos were counting on Ty Warren to anchor their run defense after sitting out the previous two seasons with injuries. That plan lasted all of five snaps.
Ty Warren’s football future is in doubt after he tore his right triceps in his first game since 2009. It’s the same injury that sidelined him all of last season.
Peyton Manning is the center of everyone’s attention at Dove Valley. Everyone knew that was going to happen, so the defense hasn’t exactly been in the spotlight during organized team activities and minicamp.
Veteran defensive tackle Justin Bannan expects his second stint with the Denver Broncos to go much better than his first.
