In speaking about whether racism exists in the NFL, Broncos coach Vic Fangio spoke to his reality as an NFL coach. But it doesn't reflect the reality that can exist around the NFL at large.
To prevent future minority generations from having to look over their shoulder out in public, the Broncos plan to step out into the public to do what they can to end racial injustice.
The Broncos only gave up a fourth-round pick for A.J. Bouye. But don’t be fooled by the trade. Despite only having to give up a fourth-round pick, Denver has sky-high expectations for their new cornerback.
Hours after the legal tampering window opened, the Broncos locked up guard Graham Glasgow. The 6-foot-6 interior offensive lineman signed a lucrative four-year, $44 million contract, making him the NFL's eighth-highest paid guard and the 10th-highest-paid interior offensive lineman. Here’s what Denver can expect from their new high-priced offensive lineman in 2020.
From signing a two-time Pro Bowl running back in Melvin Gordon, to drafting back-to-back receivers in Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler to start the draft, it’s clear adding explosion to the offense was a main priority for John Elway in 2020.
Yet there’s one other notable addition to the offensive side of the ball that hasn’t had a dangerous label to his name. Until now.
Not only does Denver’s $122 million allocated to the defense lead the league, but it’s also 33 percent more than the league average of $92 million. That means Vic Fangio’s unit better be darn good.
On paper, he did just that by signing a Pro-Bowl running back, drafting an All-American receiver and selecting one of the fastest wideouts in the draft. With all of the new additions, including key pickups on the offensive line, the Broncos will have many new faces in the starting lineup.
With their third and final selection in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos selected former five-star recruit McTelvin Agim, the talented defensive lineman from Arkansas. Agim showed great versatility playing defensive end and tackle in college and was the Razorbacks’ best pass rusher in his final two seasons. Despite being a bit of a boom-or-bust…...
With the first of their three third-round selections, the Denver Broncos made one of their few defensive picks by selecting Michael Ojemudia, the defensive back out of Iowa. While not a household name, the All-Big Ten second-team selection elevated his stock throughout the draft process and possesses prototypical size-speed combination as an outside cornerback in the NFL. It doesn’t hurt…...
After grabbing Jerry Jeudy in the first round, it appeared that need was taken care of, at least in terms of another high-round pick. But it was that exact thinking by other NFL teams that allowed Denver to snag two of their top receivers.
John Elway feels the same way about the Broncos' offensive tackle situation as the rest of Broncos County.
"We have to get better there, there’s no question about it," Elway said, regarding Denver's tackle situation. "That’s a position we have to get better at."
Before taking to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, instead of going with the safe “red” or “black” options on the proverbial-roulette table, Elway placed his money on a single number.
Bringing in a big-time tackle this offseason would have made the writing on the wall extremely clear for Garett Bolles’ future in Denver. Since John Elway didn’t go that way, Bolles’ future will be decided on the field.
Lloyd Cushenberry’s jump from high school to college couldn’t have ended much better despite having to learn a new position over YouTube. Now, not only will he not have to learn a new position, he’ll have Mike Munchak, not YouTube, to lean on.
With the excitement of Thursday night's 2020 NFL Draft still fresh, we went back to our Big Board as our guide to grade all six picks from the Denver Broncos and their AFC West rivals.
From thinking they’d have to trade up to having their guy drop into their lap, the Denver Broncos made out like bandits on the opening night of the 2020 NFL Draft. Jeudy was the eighth-ranked prospect on our draft board, carrying a first-round grade as the second-best receiver in a historic class with 20 wideouts grading out as future NFL…...
No way Jerry Jeudy would last until the 15th-overall pick, right? The Broncos didn't believe so. In fact, in their prep for the draft, Denver's brass had Jeudy falling to them in "a lot less" than 50 percent of their mock drafts.
