With the 2012 draft complete, the Denver Broncos moved into the second phase of their 2012 offseason program Wednesday — organized workouts at the Broncos facility.
That’s right folks, we’re talking about practice. Almost.
And even though the Broncos are without pads and can’t even square off offense vs. defense at these workouts, it’s pretty damn exciting. Peyton Manning is in the building, people.
Until now, Manning has had to work offsite and without the involvement of any coaches employed by the Denver Broncos Football Club.

The quarterback to whom I most often hear Andrew Luck compared is Peyton Manning. It’s an understandable comparison for a slew of reasons.

By signing Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos gave themselves a three-year window in which they can make a serious run at the Super Bowl. But their selections in this draft class raise some questions about the direction this franchise is headed.
Derek Wolfe was a reach in the early 2nd round. John Fox was clearly looking for a penetrating three-technique tackle but, while Wolfe is...
We remember when Jabar first came to New England in October 2006. He went on to learn all three wide receiver positions; something we have found out isn’t quite easy to do (Chad Ochocinco). Welcome back Jabar Gaffney, a 60 Max favorite has agreed to a two-year contract.
In 2009, we screamed when Bill Belichick allowed Gaffney to walk to Denver for short money, where he blossomed...
The NFL career of former Eagles/Broncos safety Brian Dawkins came to an end nearly a week ago.
Since hanging up his cleats and emotive screams, Dawkins has been busy. He retired as an Eagle on Saturday and held his farewell press conference with many ex-teammates in attendance including Donovan McNabb.
Hours later, Dawkins threw out the first pitch prior to a Phillies 5-2 win over...
