(Image courtesy of the team/@Denver_Broncos) The Denver Broncos are now officially ready for training camp.  Players are to report for physicals on Wednesday and everyone will be there. On Tuesday afternoon, the team inked their last remaining un-signed rookies — quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Ronnie Hillman — to four year deals.  The team announced the transactions via Twitter. According to a Denver Post report, Osweiler’s deal is worth $3.1 million with a $997,584 signing bonus.  Terms of Hillman’s deal are unknown, but his signing bonus is reportedly worth nearly $691,000. Osweiler (6-7, 242 lbs.) and Hillman (5-9, 190 lbs.) were the final two of seven draft selections to sign with the team.  The pair of rookies will practice with the entire team when training camp practice sessions begin on Thursday (full schedule). A former Arizona State quarterback, Osweiler will compete with Caleb Hanie and Adam Weber to backup starter Peyton Manning this season.  Hillman is expected to compete for playing time and could end up being the second running back behind Willis McGahee against Pittsburgh this September. With their entire draft class signed, the Broncos can now focus on the 2012 season.  47 days, 17 hours, 19 minutes, 08 seconds and 239 milliseconds!
