I will normally be taking the weekends off from pumping out the daily links, but since I’m the new guy – and that I woke up earlier than usual – I decided not to take today off.  These are later than usual, but enjoy the links nonetheless!

NFL faces new offseason rules under new CBA | Denver Post
Broncos coach John Fox loves to see Peyton Manning throw a football, especially now that Manning will do that in a Denver uniform. Fox, however, is far from enthused that Manning has to throw passes at a local high school to work with his new teammates instead of right outside Fox’s office window at the Broncos’ Dove Valley complex.

This really isn’t Denver Broncos related news, but the more teams clamoring to overdraft at Quarterback or other positions no high on our teams needs list then the more talent at positions of need that will slide down to the #25 spot!

Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill turns heads at pro day | Denver Post
Way back in the salad days of, say, like a month ago, Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill represented the quarterback on this year’s draft board who wasn’t named Luck or Griffin. Tannehill was the kind of prospect John Elway likes at quarterback.

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Peter Konz Projected For Broncos By Mocking The Draft | SB Nation
Lots of people have Denver going defense here, and I agree. That makes sense. However, if John Elway truly has no “Plan B” after he roped in Peyton Manning, then protecting Manning has to be the franchise’s No. 1 priority.

Taking a trip down memory lane | Mile High Report
Right now is a very exciting time to be a Denver Broncos fan. Lord knows we deserve it ha ha, I wanted to bring us down memory lane for just a moment to see where we have come from.
