The Denver Broncos have not lacked big-name pass rushers over the last few years. Just in the past three years, the Broncos have had Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Randy Gregory, Baron Browning and now Frank Clark on their roster. Yet the big-time production has not followed. Will this year be different for Vance Joseph’s group? Will Sean Payton’s offense allow the pass rush to pin their ears back finally? If so, who will lead the team in sacks?
On Thursday, the Denver Broncos made a big-time addition to their pass rush by signing former Kansas City Chiefs’ edge rusher Frank Clark. It appears the signing is in reaction to Baron Browning’s offseason surgery that could sideline him longer than initially expected. Will Clark be Vance Joseph’s starting linebacker alongside Randy Gregory? What are the expectations for Clark this year? Additionally, the Broncos are being connected to Dalvin Cook, who is expected to be officially released from the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. How Sean Payton utilize Cook? What would this mean for Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine?
The Denver Broncos wrapped up their third week of OTA practices on Thursday. Minutes after Sean Payton wrapped up practice, George Paton and the team signed former Kansas City Chief pass rusher Frank Clark to a one-year deal worth up to $7.5 million. Additionally, we found out that Baron Browning had surgery this offseason and that’s why he hasn’t been at OTAs. Will Clark be able to fill in for Browning effectively? What does this mean for Randy Gregory, Nik Bonitto and Jonathon Cooper? The Broncos also will reportedly have interest in Dalvin Cook. What does this mean for Javonte Williams? The DNVR Broncos Crew was at the practice and talked to Sean Payton after. They break down the biggest takeaways from Russell Wilson, Jerry Jeudy, Pat Surtain II, Randy Gregory and Justin Simmons. Now that OTAs are completed, the team looks toward mandatory minicamp taking place next week.
Should the Denver Broncos trade away one of their outside linebackers?
That is the question.
This is the debate.
While on the surface, the Broncos’ blockbuster deal trading away Bradley Chubb appears to be a play for the future, George Paton made it clear he isn’t throwing in the towel on the 2022 season.
Another week, another batch of injuries for the 2-5 Broncos to deal with. This week, however, there was at least a dash of potential good news on that front.
Baron Browning’s transition from ILB to OLB “has been definitely even better than we even thought.”
In the second week of camp, he’s made a massive jump and making big-time plays.
Russell Wilson led a game-winning touchdown drive to cap off Thursday’s practice, including a 35-yard completion on 4th-and-4.
But it was what Russ did behind the scenes that showed why he’s a special QB.

However, the wave of pass rushers George Paton has assembled are showing traits, flashes and promise to take over in the post-Miller era.
The 2022 Denver Broncos’ pass rush enters a new era, with a new coaching staff and the off-season departure of multiple-notable veterans.
